Surprise! Here's something special for you all....

Today is the Solstice, so, from here on in the days start getting longer again and the end of the year is in sight.  2017 has been a very strange year for me, but on the whole things have been heading in the right direction, and I have been more productive as a writer in the last 12 months than I think I have been in my entire life previously.  Pretty much all of this I owe to you- the wonderful people who have supported me by reading my work, and giving me encouragement when I started to flag.

So, here is my thank you to you all: a brand new story, which you can download for free from Smashwords (and hopefully Amazon will soon follow- keep your eyes peeled for that update!).  'Mari's Dance: A Tale of Aegis Immemorial' is a dark adventure tale, following Danika Echo on her ongoing journey- though touched, perhaps, with a tiny bit of Welsh winter custom.... 😉  Click the link under the picture to be taken straight to Smashwords to get it!




But hey- we can't have an end of year post without thinking about what comes next.  Next year is going to be busy: for one thing, I'll be moving house (*groans*), but more importantly, I'll be launching 'Death's White Hands' on Kickstarter, with the intent of producing a professional quality physical copy of the book which I can then go on to sell to distributors.  All plans for the Kickstarter are more or less complete, the backer rewards are all sourced and planned.... so make sure you save a few pennies in the new year if you want to join in the fun!  After all, this will be the only time that you will have the chance to get items including limited edition art prints, and even hand-knitted clothing (made by yours truly...)

Oh, and here is a sneak peek- the finalised and full colour art prints by the brilliant Dechanique!


So, there's a lot to look forward to in the New Year- and I'll see you then.  I'll be away for a few days as of tomorrow (though I will of course update you all when 'Mari's Dance' is available on Amazon!).  I hope you all have a wonderful end of the year- and here's to 2018!!
