Unpublished content!

I’ve been having a little clear out, and keep finding random notebooks and bits of paper with various writings on that I’d long forgotten about! On one sheet of paper I found a short, unedited paragraph that I think was supposed to make it into The...

A published novel

So, my book has now been published, and I’m really enjoying the challenge of promoting it. At the same time however, it’s TOUGH finding an evening here and there to actually do that and I have recently made a promise to myself to do better. I found a...
