Tonight I begun the rewrite of Going Home that I mentioned here on the blog a few weeks ago. As such, I thought tonight would be a good time to tell you a bit more about the most significant change I’ll be making to the books and the reasoning behind it. I’m talking, of course, about the removal of magic from the Continue reading Orryn Reborn – On Removing Magic
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
Hello lovelies! Boy, has this blog been dead lately? I have had a bad case of “holy shit, what even is to-do lists and writing stuff” lately, with the day job being super busy for a while and my studies remaining super busy. For that reason, I haven’t been doing much worth reporting lately. I did some flash fiction about Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Miss me?
This weekend, about 6 months and 10 days after the release of Going Home, its sequel Dress Rehearsal Rag hit the Kindle Store and Smashwords. Yay! Normally I’d do a separate post about news as big as this, but since it’s Monday, and since I’ve already told most people about it view Twitter, Facebook and my newsletter (which you, as Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Dress Rehearsal Rag is out! And onwards.
I had planned to post this on Tuesday but somehow it’s now Friday and I’d totally forgot! Bad Emma! Anyway, I now have an official blurb for Dress Rehearsal Rag. Here it is: Orryn has a room of her own, a part-time job and, for the first time in her adult life, real friends. If not for her sister’s constant attempts Continue reading Dress Rehearsal Rag – Blurb!
Today I’m very happy to introduce the first ever guest post here on my blog, a short “spotlight” post by my good friend and fellow writer Z.R. Southcombe about one of her literary idols. Z.R. released her debut What Stars Are Made Of, a word-less storybook, in late 2014 and just yesterday her latest novel, The Caretaker of Imagination, was launched. Continue reading Guest Spotlight – Z.R. Southcombe on Roald Dahl: Inspiration and Imagination
That’s right, peeps, the title of my upcoming novella is Dress Rehearsal Rag. As you may know, it’s the sequel of Going Home. I’ve decided to release it in early June. I figure, even if I finish it in late May, a few days extra polishing doesn’t hurt! So what do you think of the title? On the surface, it might Continue reading Dress Rehearsal Rag – Coming in June 2015!
Hey guys, look what I made! It’s a word cloud made with the full text of Going Home. I’m going to print and laminate it and put it up somewhere in my flat. I sort of want to do this with all my future books. I think it’s just a fun way to sort of commemorate the occasion! Just wanted to Continue reading Word Cloud of Going Home!
One of the things that I love most about being a writer and, I think, one of the driving factors behind how far I’ve come in the past year, is the wonderful “writer tribe” I’ve found myself a part of through the magic of the interwebs. Having “colleagues” who can share advice and experience, offer encouragement and understand your struggles Continue reading Tribe News: 2 New Releases and 1 Upcoming
Today’s ThinkKit prompt is a free choice (Chef’s choice, as the email said) and since I’ve been thinking lately that I should post about my plans for 2015 on the blog I thought I’d make a “two birds, one stone” thing of it. I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about plans for next year on the blogs of my fellow Continue reading Writing Plans for 2015 (A.k.a. ThinkKit Prompt #22)
