As the discerning reader will have noticed, my attempts at keeping up my blogging while, as they say, down under, were not very successful. I have now been back “up over”, I suppose, for about a week and I thought it was time I get back into it! I had an absolutely fantastic time on my trip, a once in Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back… uh, Up Over?
Tonight I wanna tell you about a hard, writing-related decision I recently made. I actually made it a few weeks ago, but I needed a bit of time to process before announcing it publically. To basic gist is this: I will be re-editing and rereleasing both books in my Orryn Novella series, Going Home and Dress Rehearsal Rag. There will be some significant, Continue reading Orryn Reborn – The What and the When
I have had the most awful cold this past week. I don’t get (properly) sick very often, and being ill enough that I can’t work or really do much else aside from veg around and cough a lot for a whole week is almost unheard of in my world. It’s also left me pretty restless because I haven’t been so Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – *Atchoo!*
That’s right, the prints for the giveaway finally arrived! Or, I should say, the print, because the second one is for me! Hah! If you don’t know which giveaway I’m talking about, check out this post for the full details! The print depicted above is my copy, the winner’s copy is still all safely wrapped in bubblewrap! The bookmarks also arrived Continue reading Giveaway – 4 Days Left! – Prints and Bookmarks are Here!
It’s giveaway time! To brighten up this grey November, I’m going to be giving away printed copies of my debut novella, Going Home, some book swag and an exclusive piece of art, commissioned just for this giveaway! Cool, no? For any readers who are unfamiliar with it, Going Home is a family drama in a dystopian setting and deals with childhood Continue reading Giveaway – Paperback of Going Home + Original Artwork + Bonus!
That’s right! I’ve reviewed my proof copies and deemed them correct, so my books are now buyable in print. Currently they are only available in the CreateSpace eStore (Going Home and Dress Rehearsal Rag) but they should become available on Amazon and elsewhere within the next few days. Very exciting! I’m keeping the proof copies as my own copies, and it Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Paperbacks now available!
After my little setback last week, this week I feel like I’ve really gotten back into the groove. In spite of a busy week at work and socially, I have: Read through a few more chapters of my current MS. I’m really enjoying working with it, but I’ve come to realize that it’s gonna need a lot more work than Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back Into The Groove
I did it, guys! I finished my edits! And I’m exhausted! It was a strange week. Total brain-blockage all week, and then edited like a mad woman all weekend. Now the MS is with the proofreaders, and it looks like I’ll hear back from both her and the cover artist on Wednesday. So today I’ve been relaxing, and tomorrow I play Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – The Waiting Game
That’s right guys, it’s time for my first ever giveaway! Or actually giveaways, in plural, because there are two. Exciting! To celebrate the upcoming release of Dress Rehearsal Rag I’m giving away two digital copies of it, and two digital copies of Going Home, the book that came before it. If you aren’t familiar with Going Home yet, check out it’s Goodread’s page. Dress Rehearsal Rag Continue reading Giveaway! – Digital Copies of Going Home and Dress Rehearsal Rag
I had a lovely realization recently. It was this: in my company account I have a few hundred dollars, money I’ve earned on my freelance translations. I am perfectly allowed to use that money to reinvest in my business by spending it on things relation to my writing (since that is, after all, part of my business). It could even Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Riveting Realizations
