August Catch-up: Writing, Planning and Life-in-General

This last month or so has been a bit of a rollercoaster… (cue earworm)

My goddess that song makes me feel old… (ahem)

Anyhoo, where was I? Oh yes, Life… well, I’ve been having a certain amount of entertainment with the first Trimester of pregnancy; it’s made me tired, unable to focus and not eat a lot.  Surprise Bump (SB from here on in) has essentially kiboshed a whole load of plans that I’ve been making about my writing career.

However, those plans have been made and are now being sorted out (at a slower rate than I first wanted them to) and I at least know where I’m going, even if I don’t know how long it’s going to take me to get there…

I’ve said before that I would be re-releasing “The Tower and The Eye” this year.  Having had some great feedback from readers and my stalwart group of Alpha/Beta readers on “A Beginning”, I’m almost at the point where I could release it back onto the world with some new content… well I would be if I didn’t keep finding bits that I can expand and make more interesting!

Hopefully I can have this one out by the end of September, which means I can then work on getting Book 2 out by January.  In between which, I have NaNoWriMo coming up – I still haven’t decided what to do for that yet – maybe I’ll stay in the world of Quargard and work on the Story collection I’ve had on the back burner for a while .

“The Quargard Chronicles” will contain never before seen stories about various characters, some poetry (and no I’m not joking about that) and a fair bit of background to the world in general… I might even make it an illustrated book.

The last piece of news I have is that I have another Patron! Yes, I now have two people who believe in my work enough that they’re willing to spare some cash each month to help me publish my work.

If you’d like to join them, feel free. My Patreon page is:

Now, I’d better toddle off and get some sleep – before I accidently delete half my book through exhaustion!

Have fun!
