A quick update from the writing desk

I’m just taking a break from my writing schedule to provide a quick update on what’s been happening on the creative front.

My new website has been up for a month or so now, and I’d like to thank Steve Denham for the design and Tim Sheehan from Sites Built Now for the construction. I’m really delighted with the result and I hope you like it too. Feel free to provide any feedback via the contact page.

The first draft for ‘House of the Half Moon’ has now passed sixty thousand words and based on the feedback I’ve been receiving from early readers, it seems to be coming together pretty well. I’ve just about finished one timeline and I’m looking forward to stepping into the next. Unlike my earlier novels, I am not plotting as much as I used to and trusting the creative process more, which I think might be ‘A Very Good Thing’.

Finally, the World Fantasy Convention in Brighton, UK, is fast approaching. I’m really looking forward to attending my first international publishing convention. I’m quietly hoping it will be both inspiring and enlightening, although I might want to dial back my expectations a tad. The added bonus is the opportunity to visit some dear friends in London as well.
