Just to let you know that I haven't been completely bone idle these last few days. Yes I have been busy trying to set up this blog, and since I have the computer skills of your average five year old (monkey), that has taken some of my time away from writing. But I have been working at that too.
Alien, my next sci fi book is written and going through the rewrite / edit process. Wizard At Law Book Two: The Shimmering, is half written and I'm still struggling away at it. And Shavarra, my next fantasy is about eighty percent done.
Unfortunately for my writing I also just got a set of dvd's in the mail - The Aphrodite Inheritence, a miniseries from Britain 1979 that I remember watching as a kid with my father, and so naturally I had to watch that. Great story, some of the acting is a little stilted, and some of the people are actually wearing flares. Every time I saw that it just kept shocking me. But regardless Michael J Bird created a great story and it inspired me to start a new one myself. At the moment its about five or six thousand words long, it's called Pawn, and I'm really pleased with it so far.
So there may be some further delay in getting my next book out. (If I was a woman I could claim I was multi-tasking, but unfortunately as a man all I can really say is that I'm making a hash of things!)
I also started work on the cover for Shavarra, and if everything works correctly, it should be attached or part of this post. (Naturally I'd welcome any feedback on it.)
So that's where I am at the moment.
