Right, so far this year 2012 hasn't been all that productive (I'm ashamed to say). I think my subconscious got a tad lazy when I got my first collection accepted for publication and then decided to wait around till it basked in its glory before trying to create new material.
But, as we know, every positive has a negative and this negative was that my collection got delayed and with that my muse chose to stay on holiday.
I have now however got back in the swing of things. I'm currently working on a novel and have a feeling it's going to be a looooong one, and its fantasy too! (Dark fantasy though...)
And also, my collection "Strings" is due for a Winter release, I honest can't wait!!!
It feels now like it's never gonna happen, but I know when I have the book in my hands it'll all be worth it!!
2012 however did see the publication of two of my Novelettes, "Hell On Earth" in "Earth's End" and "A Last Hope" in "Wicked Bag Of Fantasy Tales"
My short story, "The Only Place To Die" was published in the collection "Read The End First" (This is one of my personal favorites).
My flash piece, "It Still Keeps Me Awake At Night" was published in "Short Sips, Coffee House Flash Fiction Collection 2" and "Archania's Watch" was published in the anthology "Evil In Flight"
And my story "Reindeer Feed" will be available to purchase in the eBook anthology "Christmas In Hell" coming very soon!
If you want to read any of the above, just click on the link to purchase..:) The links are UK Amazon, but are available on Amazon.com as well.
Overall it's been a very quiet year publication wise, and behind the scenes. I do plan however to make the rest of this year very productive, and I have a feeling 2013 will be good to me!

- I am a writer of all things supernatural, and some things not. In September '08 I decided I wanted to pursue my dream of becoming a writer. Since then I have gotten a Diploma in Creative Writing from Kilroys College in Dublin. I struggled to find a home for my stories until August 2010. Since then I've had around 70 stories accepted for publication from small presses such as; Pill Hill Press, Wicked East Press, and Static Movement. My first collection of short stories "Strings" is currently on sale, and my short novel Love's Curse is set for release late May 2015. I am determined to continue with achieving my dream and hopefully entertain you while I do. Thank you everyone, and I hope you enjoy my work.
