There are different kinds of listening. We know this. There's listening to understand and we should all do more of that, and then there are those people who aren't really listening, they're waiting for space to speak. Sometimes they don't even wait, they just talk right over people. Don't be them! Sometimes people appear to … Continue reading Listening … and writing.
Seems like the best title for the day. Not very inventive but let's not put too much pressure on 2021. It's the last day for the Smashwords Sale (I know it ends on Jan 1 but I think it actually ends on the 2nd for us in the Southern Hemisphere). Links for you: Byte Series … Continue reading Jan 1st, 2021
I decided to treat myself with some new books for Christmas. One is a paperback from our bookshop, that one is amazing and I am loving it [Sinai Soldiers by Dave Hayward]. Problem with paperbacks is I can't read them them at night. I read on a device at night (kindle or phone). So, I … Continue reading New books & teaching aids!
It's almost Christmas and you deserve a little something for you. You know you do. I got you. FYI, a couple of these are probably free, so in you hop! Load up that eReader or phone or however you choose to read eBooks. Go crazy. Merry Christmas, Happy whatever. :)All my Byte Series Novels are … Continue reading I got you …
I had this whole blog post in my head this morning but then I left my MacBook at home due to the horrendous weather, so I couldn't write it when I got to the bookshop. Also, my wrist isn't terribly happy at the moment. It's been aching like a bastard for three days and nights, … Continue reading Where’d my ideas go?
I dunno how time seems to be moving so fast ... maybe the universe has had enough of 2020 as well. Seems like I blinked and 11 days went by. We are speeding toward the end of October. If that means we're closer to My Knight being able to come home, then yay! But if … Continue reading October is disappearing
Thanks for the blog title, Bon Jovi. :)And the week begins. It started well with a coffee and meeting someone new at the bookshop. Last week was old soldiers, today, a considerably younger random coffee purchaser. 🙂 Good people are still out there.This morning was sales email morning so once that job was complete I … Continue reading Do What You Can
Some nights are just not worth the effort, last night was such a night. Very little sleep and a lot of brain rambling. It's not like my brain was busy working out a plot point or anything, it was not, it was rambling! Thoughts wandered all over the map. Should I add indigo or teal … Continue reading Your Wildest Dreams
Today is September 25th. It's the cancelled VAPORBYTE launch day. Tonight there will be tequila. 🙂 Apart from the disappointment of the year (and it really has been back to back disappointment and learning to roll with the punches) ... I'm working on two new projects.I know, two. My head is shaking as well.One is … Continue reading Into the Great Wide Open
Floundering a bit at the moment. Turns out I'm not 100% convinced that I know what I'm going to do next. It's quite a weird feeling after years of knowing exactly what the next step was - listen to Ellie and write, rinse and repeat.Now it's wide open and could be anything and I don't … Continue reading What am I waiting for?
