Good evening all! Just a quick little post as there’s not much to update. I’ve have a couple of days off, and will have a couple more. I’m off to Cardiff tomorrow for my friends CL Raven’s signing at a local WH Smiths. Here’s the link to their post with all the details.

I’m really looking forward to seeing Cat and Lynx (CL Raven). They’re good friends and it’ll be good to hang out with them when not at a con.

To get there at a decent time, I need to leave before the suns up. So I’m off to bed! have an awesome weekend everyone!

Yesterday I had a thousand word day. The first in quite some time. I don’t think I’m going to get many of those this month as I’m going to be editing my zombie trifecta novella next week and then after that I’ll be getting properly stuck into the Vampire Era.

Speaking of the Vampire Era, I’ve started the rewrites/editing for that. 1200 words in so far and hoping I’m doing a good job. I think the changes I’m going to make are really going to make it come alive, and I think I’ve grown enough as a writer to give it what I’ve felt it’s lacked in the past.

CS1 has hit a bit of a roadblock. I’m stuck on how I’m ending it, I’ve got an idea but I’m having trouble executing it. So I’m letting it sit for a few days and see if that helps.

I will drop everything when I get Beta notes back on PE3.

This weekend I’m taking a break though. I’m off to Cardiff to support my friends at their signing at WH Smith’s. If you’re in the area pop along and see them between 11am and 1pm. If you search CL Raven on Twitter or CL Raven Fan club on Facebook the details are there. You can also click the links on the side of this blog to my social media as the details are there as well. I’ll try and pop a link in my next post as well.

Right, time to get to work. Have a super day, all.

I’m calling this a productive day. I’ve edited around one hundred and thirty pages and finished this final edit pass!!! PE3 has now winged its way to Beta readers and until I get their notes back I’m going to crack on with something else.

I was going to get my zombie trifecta tweaked and edited and so on, but I think I’ll work on CS1 and get that finished. I’ve done a lot of editing this year and I need to let loose and get some solid words written and not worry about how it looks or sounds. I just need to let my imagination off the leash and let it run free.

All that editing has left me pretty brain dead. So I’ve chilled out since I finished with a bit of mindless TV and will soon be reading.

Raven's Retreat

Screenshot_20190209-144714We’ve finally achieved one of our writing goals: a book signing in an actual bookshop. W H Smith have agreed to let us through their doors and unleash us on their unsuspecting customers. It would have been nice to have been invited because we’re famous and our presence would draw a bigger crowd than William Burke’s execution (25,000 in case you were wondering) but the truth is, they put a call out for authors on Twitter and past us did a stupidly brave thing and emailed them. Damn you, past us! Don’t you realise future, anxious us has to deal with your bravery? Anyway, the signing will take place in the Queen Street branch, Cardiff on Saturday 16th February from 11-1 p.m. Sorry it’s such short notice, but they’ve only just told us the time. So if you’re free, come along and make us look worth the hassle.

Good evening all. Tonight I have edited three chapters. I’m aiming to have it done by the end of Friday and then off to me Beta readers early next week. I think if I get another three or four chapters tomorrow, which’ll leave me with about half the book to go, then on Sunday if I really push hard then I’ll get it done.

I’m not quite sick of this story yet, but I’ll be glad once I’ve got it done and sent it sailing off to Beta’s and I’m on to something else.
