#indieluv

This was supposed to be a brief and jolly post, just enough to point you to this fantastic listing of independently published and small press books, available right now for your reading and gift-buying pleasure. … but then, I was going to talk about #indieluv, as well. I don’t often talk about #indieluv (I usually […]

A terrible admission

I’m terribly bad about leaving reviews. Yeah, me: I should know better. The worst of it is that when I run through my list of stock excuses I realise very quickly that they are all things that I know are not really true. For my own future reference, then, and for the benefit of anyone […]

Cutthroats & Curses

The Anthology Club presents its second collection. This time it’s pirates, and this time I’m on board. I always feel a little uneasy assigning a star rating to a book that I have a stake in, so: just words, and you must consider this a review of the ten elevenths of this anthology that have […]

Find the Lady

Well, it’s out, and creeping into the usual range of outlets. For now it’s available from Amazon (UK & USA), Barnes & Noble, iTunes and, of course, Smashwords. Who is the girl currently calling herself Kathryn Blake? Where does she come from and . . . where does she belong? To her potential employer, collecting […]

Tales by the Tree

I’ve been an intermittent presence here recently, so it’s a delight to come back, not only with pictures and links (a proper blog, no less) but with an announcement that’s far more exciting than I expected it to be. Although I didn’t link to them at the time (what with my stated views on premature […]
