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
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!

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.

They were all there except for Miranda who was working late that day and was expected to return at any moment. Charlie had ridden home Continue reading Dress Rehearsal Rag – Excerpt #1

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!

Sometimes the good things are like “see you in a bit!

As you may have noticed, I ended up skipping my ThinkKit prompt yesterday. It was about rants and raves, encouraging bloggers to get up on the soapbox about some issue and I skipped it because: a) when I try to soapbox in writing it tends to become long and incoherent and I upset myself in the process of writing it Continue reading Just Can’t Wait – ThinkKit Prompt #9
This week’s Twice Fortnightly has been cancelled in favor of, drum-roll please, the cover reveal of Going Home! About time, too, with only a few days to go! As you may recall from my post last week I decided, quite at the last minute, to hire someone to do my cover instead of doing it myself.
