The End of the Apocalypse

Some bad news surfaced a couple of days ago. After 13 books, the Apocalypse Weird – the multi-author, shared world publishing project from Wonderment – is no more. For those unfamiliar with the project, the goal was to publish a series of interconnected books written by some of the hottest indie authors out there. Each author would create […]

Amidst the Settling Dust

It’s been a hectic few weeks since the launch of Glitch Mitchell and the Unseen Planet. My time’s been split between promoting the book, a busy period at my day job, renovations on our new apartment, a birthday (mine), and trying to get back to running after an extended period recovering from a niggling injury I’ve had for […]

Top 5 Weird Aliens

Let’s face it, the world loves aliens – watching them, reading about them, arguing about whether they exist. It’s not a new phenomenon by any means – Johannes Kepler’s book, Somnium, details a race of “daemons” who live in the moon and that was written in 1608 but even after four hundred years, the idea of meeting beings from […]

Two Years of Writing

It’s been a while since I made a pure metrics post, I’ve been focusing on writing and editing, rather than writing about writing and editing, but I recently passed a milestone that I thought was worth talking about. On 30th June 2013, I sat down and decided I would write every day, and I haven’t missed a day since – which […]

Building the Apocalypse – The Middle of the End

After three rounds of my own revisions, my Apocalypse Weird novel, tentatively titled Siren’s Call, has gone off to Wonderment Media’s editor, Ellen Campbell. Now the waiting begins as Ellen reads through the draft and tracks down any issues – not just bad grammar and spilling mistales but also parts of the story that are too slow or don’t make […]

8 Things That Make Apocalypse Weird Cool

There’s only about 60 hours to get on board the Apocalypse Weird Indiegogo crowd funding campaign so here’s 7 reasons why I think you should take a look at it. 1) It’s the first of its kind. This is, as far as I know, the first time so many traditionally published and indie authors have joined forces to create […]

Siren’s Call is Finished…Sort Of

I just finished the final tweaks to the first draft of my Apocalypse Weird novel, Siren’s Call. The final word count came in at 68,162. Still lots of work to do, but I’m very happy with how it’s turned out so far. Now it sits on my hard drive for a couple of weeks or so to […]

Building the Apocalypse – So Close

Time for another update on progress on my Apocalypse Weird novel, Siren’s Call (working title). I had hoped this post would be a celebratory “I’ve finished the first draft of Siren’s Call” post but it wasn’t to be. Total word count was 5,002 for the week. As you can see, I switched into revision mode […]
