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.

And onwards.
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

As promised, here’s an excerpt from Dress Rehearsal Rag: Later that night, the dining room was bustling with it’s usual activity.
