April Wrap Up
April was a pretty good month. I wrote over 10,000 words, started querying agents and launched Welsh Writers Wed on Twitter.
If you're on Twitter take a few minutes to check out #WelshWritersWed - it's a weekly celebration of talented Welsh fiction writers of all genres.
Inspiration in Miniature
I get some of my best ideas when I'm travelling. But on my recent trip to Hamburg, I managed to go one step further!
Thanks to everyone who took the time earlier this week to vote for their favourite version of the cover for 'First Blood'. It was a very close run contest! I'm delighted to reveal the winning cover...
Happy New Year! Happy New Book!
New New Year! And best wishes for 2017! I spent most Christmas writing a fifteen chapter prequel to Blood Will Tell, entitled 'First Blood', which I hope to release as an e-book in February.
Reading in London
In November, I took part in my first public reading. The event was organised by Novel London, which brings together writers and book lovers at monthly events across the capital.
Blood Will Tell won't be published until 2017, in the meantime here are some examples of novels that I love, and authors I enjoy reading. (Just click on the book covers to be taken to the amazon.co.uk pages)
A book is a dream you hold in your hands…
Neil Gaiman wrote those words. I find them beautiful and very apt. He also wrote “Then he grinned, like a fox eating shit from a barbed wire fence” which I also find beautiful but for entirely different reasons.
