Jen Air: The Novellas

I’ve written a few novellas for Jen Air that I will now look back on.  Obviously, I now hate all of them and I think the stuff I’m writing now is a lot better.  Still, you can get them from all these places.  Most of the time they’re free (except on Amazon for now, so […]

Review: The City of Gold and Lead, by John Christopher

Reliving my earliest reading memories, I have now finished the second book in John Christopher’s Tripods Trilogy.  It continues from where the last one finished, with our hero Will, Henry and Beanpole (don’t know why he’s the only one who gets a nickname) having completed their perilous journey to the White Mountains and joining the […]

Review: The White Mountains by John Christopher

I’ve being wanting to reread this for a long time.  I remembering reading it when I was a wee one, and so was one of the things that got me interested in reading and in storytelling.  But I finally did and you know what?  It’s still pretty good.  The prose is simple, but effective, and […]

Asterion: Thale & Glauce

Review: Paranormality by Richard Wiseman

So I’m going to start writing some quick reviews again, because I like to and it gives me something to do.  I’m starting with a non-fiction just because it was the last thing I read. So Richard Wiseman is a psychologist.  Before he was a psychologist he was a magician, and it’s really no coincidence […]

The Little Queen – What I think.

A little bit of a retrospective on my first book The Little Queen.  A little bit of a review of my own work, I suppose (may contain spoilers).  The sequel, Asterion, is undergoing another rewrite and I’m nearly to the end of the first act.  Maybe then I’ll let some beta-readers take a look at […]

The Little Queen – Themes

The Little Queen is still You Set The Price on Smashwords, and $2.99 everywhere else.  Should really update the description and everything on the website.  But now the necessary marketing stuff is out the way,today instead of talking about the plot I’m going to quickly go other some of the themes in this story, some […]
