NanoWriMo Wrap-Up

Well, that's it! November is well and truly over and with it, NanoWriMo. I'll admit now, I was pleasantly surprised at the results. I went into the project thinking 50,000 words in a month was probably doable, but it's also coming into that time of year when things start to go a little haywire -… Continue reading NanoWriMo Wrap-Up

In Flight

Rain poured down, splattering so hard against the windshield it was almost impossible for the wipers to do their job. I squinted, ducking down slightly in a futile effort to better see where we were going. It was half past eight in the morning, but the clouds were so heavy it might as well have… Continue reading In Flight

This scene is set about fifty-eight years before the events of Sorcery and Stardust.

Beta Readers

I hunched over my keyboard, screwed up my face - and my courage - and clicked SEND. As soon as it was done, the blinking confirmation of my decision burning into the back of my retinas, I let out a sigh that was part nerves, part relief. “It’s done.” “You look like you just ate… Continue reading Beta Readers

School Holidays

I sat down with my cup of tea this afternoon and realised it was, quite suddenly, Sunday - and here I am without so much as a word to share! School Holidays is always one of my favourite times; I love having the kids close by (even if they argue) and not having to rush… Continue reading School Holidays

Caelum’s Bookshelf

This little snippet is set about fifty years before Sorcery and Stardust. Enjoy! ***************** “There. Autopilot set; we should arrive in the next five hours or so.” Arcana leant back in her chair and stretched until her shoulders popped. “Once this job is done, we’ll have enough cash to convert the ship so you can… Continue reading Caelum’s Bookshelf
