I'm thinking back on a conversation I had with Kelly (one of my core beta readers) many moons ago. To be fair, it's a conversation I've had with a number of people over the years, outlining various stages of how I do what I do - but I don't think I've ever outlined it...

There are certain things I'm used to as part of stepping to a convention. Book launches and signings. Wandering around the convention centre. All-too-brief catch-ups and photo-ops with old friends - as well as new ones. Plus other things that are part and parcel of it...

Nearing the release date for The Third Corona Book Of Horror Stories, the third horror collection from Corona Books. A collection I have a story in. Anyhow. I'm sat here with a couple of boxes of said books: for giveaway and such - all part and parcel of the author hus...

So. Now back on home territory after spending the end of August out in Toronto. No matter where else I travel to during the space of a year, the summer trip to Toronto is always a thing. A chance to catch up with friends, hit FanExpo, do a little networking, etc.

There's an irony in these conventions in that, as much as you know people there and you endeavour to catch up with them, it invariably fails to meet with 100% success. I think for this year's Edge-Lit, I only caught up with a fraction of people. What happens for a whol...

I remember a conversation I had with one of the co-heads of the HWA's UK chapter, Paul Kane, a little while ago. I'm always grateful when we have these convos because this is a man with 'X' number of years experience in the game. Plus, it's an absolute pleasure to talk...

Jay-Z's "Give It To Me" has been in mind of late. The hook of the song being: "I'm a hustler, baby, I just want you to know / It ain't where I've been, but where I'm about to go."
What also comes to mind is a question a number of people ask me, whether they're peers...

So. The last review-site review of novella But Worse Will Come came through about a month or so ago, I think. I say 'I think' because right now, I'm starting to lose track of time. Plus, I'm a little sore and listless from heavy lifting a couple of days back. I would h...

You might have a Facebook page. Your friend might have a Facebook page. You might have an acquaintance who has a Facebook page. And then you might send me an invitation to Like that page.

The short answer is 'no.' The most likely answer is 'no.' Actually, it's  more l...

Noon on a Saturday morning/afternoon. The last Saturday in March before the clocks go forward an hour. British springtime is here.
The last few weeks have seen me knock out a novelette which expands the Kin, We Are mythos featured in Crossroads In The Dark, Vol.4. Fo...
