Well, that’s it! Another thirty chapters, another section of The Ferryman’s Apprentice down. I hope that you enjoyed that part of the story as much as you did the first two, and are looking forward to seeing how it ends, like I am… Continue reading
Hi all! Quick update from me!
I’m running pretty flat-out for the convention, but as I said before, I need to make some changes to how things are run. My e-books are about to get removed from sale for a day or two, but they should be back up with all relevant information on the site changed later this week.
Thanks for being patient and understanding!
As of 4th August 2019, e-books are now up again and available. My Support Page has now been updated with the details.
Hello again, all! Sorry that I’m not posting the general thinkpiecey blogs much at the moment – I’m getting ready for a lot of things this year and most of the thinking my piece is doing revolves around “oh god oh god have I forgotten anything”, which is not exactly interesting to read on here. Continue reading
I realise this isn’t going to be particularly interesting, but I’ll try and keep this short, for those who are interested.
Where am I going?
This year, I’m doing a couple of conventions. I’ll be in Dublin from the 15th to the 20th of August for Worldcon. If anyone will be there, you can find me at the Creator’s Alley on the 16th – I’ll provide some details of exactly which table is mine closer to the date. Otherwise, I’ll just be generally around the convention — if you spot me, come say hi!
I’ll also be at Conflux convention in Canberra, from the 5th to the 7th of October. More details on where I’ll be when will be posted as I get them.
What am I doing?
I have a few projects in the works at the moment. I’ve been working on the Edit Pass Live project still (though I know I haven’t updated that in a while). I’ll have a little teaser of that project available at the conventions, if people are interested in that. It’s a sneak preview exclusive to those conventions, so you’ll have to drop by if you want a piece of that.
The second section of The Ferryman’s Apprentice is getting much closer to being released as an e-book and hard copy — there’s only a few more things to finish off. I hope to be able to provide concrete publication dates sometime next month.
The blog version of The Ferryman’s Apprentice has been trucking along, but as many may know or have guessed, the third season is reaching its end and the fourth is the last season, the big finale, the wrap-up. If anyone has ideas for things they’d like to see in the final between-season content, shout out to me on the blog or on Twitter — I’d love to see if there are any final tidbits of behind the scenes information or things about secondary characters that people really want me to publish before the whole story is over.
The next serial is also in the works, and I’ll be releasing more details about that once the fourth Ferryman’s Apprentice season is starting to draw to a close. Watch this space!
Calls to Action
I’m also going to take a second here to put on the Marketing Hat real quick. Up in the top of the page, there’s a handy-dandy “Support Me” button. If you’re interested in me or what I do, I urge you to go and visit that page. It has such useful information as my Patreon page, info on the best places to get the books that have been released, and otherwise how to support me.
You can also get in touch with me on Twitter, where I am most active on social media.
Marketing hat off now. That’s what’s going on with me for the rest of the year. I’ll update folks with more details when I have them.
Have a great day!
I was at Continuum Convention all weekend, so I’ve been talking to people about all sorts of things literary and interpretation-related. And then I got home, had my traditional bout of con flu, and therefore played games for a couple of days. So hold onto your hats, kids, this is an esoteric one. Continue reading
And I’m trying to get all the thoughts on my blog, in-stead of being lazy.
It was stuck in my head after I thought of that title and congrats/you’re welcome, now it’s stuck in yours as well. Continue reading
So, at the moment I’ve just started to do some work on a new project (don’t worry, I’m not abandoning anything else I’m working on at the moment – I’m just setting up the pieces so that when I’m ready to pick it up, it’s ready to go immediately. I’m not giving anything away just yet and I’ll be giving it a proper announcement in due course, but I’ll use it as a kicking-off point here), and that, for me, means starting at the worldbuilding stage. Continue reading
The other day, I started to replay Psychonauts. I’m going to spend some time trying to go for some of the achievements I haven’t gotten yet – all Figments, highest level, that one with Mr Pokeylope. At least, if I don’t put my fist through a wall trying to find all of the figments in certain levels first (looking directly at you, Milla Vodello, and your race track challenge). Continue reading
OK, so I wrote this thinking it would just sound weird, but then I realised it sounds more like some kind of strange, writerly urban legend.
“Remember to back up your work or you may be visited by … the dreaded BACKWARDS DRAFT!!!”
Maybe not. Continue reading
So, with some other things out of the way, I’m starting to get back into the rewrite. And one of the things I’m doing at the moment is recalibrating. Continue reading
