Redux word count: 22,000 / 65,000

Who can believe it’s May next week? I certainly can’t! Life’s zipping by and April’s had a lot more going on than March in this corner of the world.

Rogue now available in Paperback

Thanks to the stellar formatting skills of Clare Davidson I was able to get Rogue 2.0 out in print and it’s now available on Amazon. It makes such a difference being able to see the work in print and has definitely given an extra boost of enthusiasm to keep going with Redux (Rogue’s sequel)

Moving back to the UK

I’m now in my fourth week in the UK. Weather-wise, it’s been freezing cold to boiling hot all in the space of a few weeks, and now we’re happily back at rain which we seem to know how to deal with well. I’ve settled back in fairly well, and feel at peace within myself at the decision. I’m still in the process of finding my own place and setting up my own life here but I’m enjoying being back in the English culture.

The other week I went on a day trip to York for a writers day as I have been thinking about a new series to write after I’m done with my current WIP. There are so many great settings in York for urban fantasy stories that I’m excited to see what I can come up with and how the region can be folded into the narrative.

The Writers Shed

I’ve been quietly working away on the non-fiction side of my business which I’m looking to officially launch in October, my vision for it is it’s an online education site that helps writers start and build a writing life and career. I’m writing blog posts, creating resources, and will be recording a podcast which is quite exciting. So far the site can be found here

Books and Reading

I’ve been slow with my reading lately and in a bit of a slump, but I’ve been listening to the audiobook for Scythe by Neal Schusterman which I’m enjoying and I’ve started reading Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi which is incredible so far.

Podcast Recommendations

I’ve been a long time listener of the Self Publishing Podcast by Sterling and Stone, they’ve since rebranded this to the Story Studio and it’s providing some interesting insights on storytelling for fiction and business and well worth a listen.

And that’s it for April!
