  1. The Venom of Vipers gets a face-lift

    After reading a lot of forum discussions lately about cover designs and taking a long, hard look at the cover for The Venom of Vipers, I decided it needed a change. It needed to be interesting. And I needed the help of someone who designs book covers, not just an artist, so I contacted Carl Graves of Extended Imagery.

    Not only did Carl "see into" my book based on what little description I gave him, he picked out the most interesting tidbits and put together a cover that ...

  4. Why is there so much month left at the end of the money.

    Annoyed: March 2009 it cost 30 to fill up my Fiat 500 with fuel. Today it cost me 46!!! Over the last 2 years I have had no pay rises, and won't be getting one this year.

    I am also facing the prospect that I might not have a job in 6 months!

    I now have to work till 64, not 60 to get my state pension.

    The last labour government did for my private pension.

    No point it trying to save, as the rates are not worth it.

    If in ...

  7. Updated the main blog.

    I blew up the blog last weekend. Note blog, not bog! lol.

    During the fixing of it by Oz, we updated the version of word press and the theme. I think it looks better and I learned a lot about what I can and can't do with it.

  10. Did I write a gaming novel?

    About six weeks ago I released my first novel, Aure the Topaz, book 1 of the Aglaril Cycle.

    Since then I've gotten feedback from readers (friends of mine) who say this is a gaming novel. And while I understand that fantasy RPG players will probably pick up a few ideas on how to play and react to situations (GMs too, btw), I don't know that I would call it a gaming novel.

    The argument for it being a gaming novel is that the characters have classes like in D&D. But ...

  11. Ragnarok Fantasy Part Eight

    Happy new year guys! Here's a funny old Viking joke for you...

    A raven walks into an ale-house and says, 'Got any bread?'
    The Viking barkeep says, 'No, this is an ale-house. We sell ale, not bread.'
    The raven walks out, then walks back in and says, 'Got any bread?'
    The Viking gets angry and says, 'I told you mate, this is an ale-house; we don't sell bread. If you ask me again I'll nail your damn beak to the bar!'
    The raven walks out, then walks back in ...

  12. No such thing as writers block?

    Recently I watched an interview of my favorite author R.A. Salvatore, during the interview a girl asked him how he overcomes writers block and he..well, dropped some knowledge. He believes that there is no such thing as writers block and its just an excuse for laziness and lack of confidence. If you just continue to write the story will flow, even if you have to do some deleting later on. I actually find some logic in what he says and will never use the excuse of writers block again. What are your ...

  13. Top four of 2010!

    My debut novel, The Kinshield Legacy, was just named one of the top four reads of 2010 at DailyCheapReads.com!

    I can't tell you how excited and thrilled I am! As a writer, there's *nothing* better than hearing that people are enjoying my books. I may have a tough time breaking through the indie barrier, but I'm chipping away little by little!

    My week has been made!

  14. Catching up to the horse

    The writing didn't go all that well last year, no published credits to add to the two from late in the previous year and although I wrote a lot of words it was spread thin enough to not really seem that much. It wasn't nothing either though

    So I am beginning this year playing catch-up in some respects. I've bogged myself down in the same old pages, rewriting and fiddling in the hope I will eventually break new ground. That must change this year, which means finishing pieces, getting ...

  15. Launch of new newspaper - the Galactic Echo!

    Good people of the sffworld.com, I would like to announce the launch of a new newspaper I have self-published.

    It is an idea I got a while back, and after getting the (now sadly becoming more common for authors) rejections for getting it published I decided to purchase an internet domain and put it on the net.

    It is a newspaper reporting on all aspects of life, including society, sport, politics, etc, in fact pretty much like a typical newspaper that you would get from ...
