I Didn’t JUMP to Conclusions, I Took a Tiny Step and There Conclusions Were

January 8, 2013 by


Tuesday is the perfect, most excellent day of the week. Mostly because it’s the first time I get to write since before Christmas. When I went on holidays I decided that the first week back would be Arbitrary Admin Week (or Aaw as Rick has been referring to it). This worked remarkably well at stopping […]

Warning: AFC, Possibly Weasels

July 13, 2012 by

The Paul Habit

July 29, 2011 by


Why am I doing this? I’m asking myself this question… why put my entire work out for free, and even be considering self-epublishing? That isn’t something that many writers who want to be ‘taken seriously’ do. There are, of course, a number of high profile authors who have been doing just this, but too often […]

July 24, 2011 by


Just a quick update, no I haven’t forgotten about Bibliotek. There is a new goal to have a part up every Monday, leaving Fridays to be for other major updates. For example, this Friday will be talking about what my goals is for putting the novel up here–there have been people / authors doing this kind […]
