Hi everyone. Happy New Year to you all. I’ve been quiet lately, laid up with neck and arm problems, but the ongoing fight against my condition goes on and I am feeling a bit better and now typing with two hands…wow, what a difference that makes! lol..
On a more positive note, I have managed to write 30,000 words on my new book; the last in the Flock trilogy. Flock, The Gathering of The Damned. This one will be finished and ready to publish by May, fingers crossed, and in a bold move, I am going on an adventure for two days to the medieval towns depicted in the novel, starting with Sagrat, real name and known as, SAGUNTO, the ARSE of the world…I’m not kidding, that is the old Moorish translation for SAGUNTO. You might also be interested to know that the town 3km from where I live is called, La Jara, from the Moorish name, SHIT. What was it with the Moors and the toilet, eh?
Here’s a picture of Sagrat/Sagunto.
In other news, I am planning to start Fractured Allegiance, the sequel to Swearing Allegiance, in the summer. I am also toying with ideas for a brand new book in the historical fiction genre, but I can’t decide what period I’m going to.
This business is tough and getting tougher, but it has allowed me to discover some great Independent books in the past three years, especially historical fiction books. I’ll be listing my favourites of 2016 soon and if you’re wondering why I’m advertising my competitors, it’s because I have no competitors, no author has. We are all too busy trying to write the best stories we can, improving our skills as authors and as business people…and more importantly, I think we all appreciate a good book as much as any avid reader does.
Indies Rock! And so do you, dear readers.
Have a great 2017 everyone xxxxx
