Yes I'm a few weeks late with this, but they say it's fashionable don't they.
So what to expect from me this year. Well, in a previous post you may have read a little about my dedicating my Beyond Endless Tides series to Andrew Dockrill. I can hardly believe it but this year marks the thirtieth, THIRTIETH anniversary of the ferry disaster that shook so many lives. (I'll be writing a full post about Andrew and the Zebrugge Ferry Disaster nearer the time.) I am currently putting together an omnibus edition of the Beyond Endless Tides trilogy and this will, or should, I think, be out in Hardback for release on 6th March. I will also be creating a leather bound edition, possibly two copies only. One will be available to win in a competition (to be announced later), the other, and the reason for creating a leather bound book will be going to author Patrick Rothfuss to be auctioned off to raise money for his charitable work with Heifers, a charity who give the less fortunate a heifer, which they take milk from, and produce more heifers for neighbours. They help with other bits and pieces too, and you can find out more at Heifers International.

I am planning to be very busy on writing over the next few months. Not only finishing the first manuscript from Evania, Dragon's Eye Quest series, but I also have another project in mind. I won't give too much away, but it is a thriller set in the modernish world. A girl in her early twenties receives a suspicious and horrifying email, from which sparks her to become her own investigator. I can't for the life of me think where the idea came from so can't give a valid answer. Saying that many of the happenings are from moments in my own life that got me thinking, 'What a way to die'. I'm hoping to have the full manuscript finished by the end of April, first draft anyway, and it is something I will look to publish next year.
The rest of the year I'm sure I'll write the second book in Dragon's Eye Quest, find a few short stories to write, which I find come to me as and when, and probably start thinking of Book 3 in Dragon's Eye Quest.
That's all from me for now.
Be good to those who are good to you. Piss on those who aren't, especially if they're on fire and you've had a good dose of wine. (OK, I've recently rallied through Game of Thrones in readiness for series 7.)
