Farewell 2018...

..the year in which I published my first book.  Now, that's a happy memory that's going to live with me forever!

And here it is- as I mentioned in my last post, I have taken delivery of a proof of 'Death's White Hands', and it is now available to buy as a real, actual, physical book!  And needless to say, I am immensely proud of it!

(And don't forget- you can get your own copy of Death's White Hands in either e-book or physical form from Amazon UKAmazon US, and the e-book is also available over on Smashwords!)

As well as the release of Death's White Hands, which has been amazing, this year has been something of an adventure.  I've moved house, adopted cats, found a day job, and survived working the holiday season in retail (something that I have no doubt I will use in a future book, because if you've never done it yourself, I can assure you that Christmas retail is a weird and fraught experience.)  I'm not entirely sorry that 2018 is ending, but after everything that has happened, I am looking forward to 2019 perhaps offering a bit more stability and familiarity.

So, what will the next year hold?

Well, my main news is that I have been invited to write for an anthology titled 'Behind the Sun, Above the Moon' organised and curated by the very talented Brooklyn Ray.  This will be an anthology of fiction of magical tales inspired by the universe, and I am incredibly honoured to be offered a place among its pages.  The anthology is not due for release until 2020, but I will keep you all updated, and in the meantime you can add it to your TBR on Goodreads if you want to (I know I have!!)

Beyond that, I do have a couple of projects that I am working on- a few manuscripts that I want to finish, and one that I feel would be better served by a complete re-write before I send it off for querying.  We'll see how that goes....

But for now, I just want to thank you all for helping me make this year the best year I could have hoped for as a new author- and to wish you all the best for 2019!
