Just for fun, let's imagine I'm not drinking? Yeah, didn't work did it? 🙂 🙂 Surprise ... It's Sunday night I fucking earned this Cab Sav. How, you say? By finishing THE FINAL byte short so I can get this last boxed set sorted. OMG. I know, right? Also, I'm doing something else with it … Continue reading It’s the weekend and whatnot
The weekend is over. It's full steam ahead into a new week!I'm talking to council on Thursday, pitching a project that involves Upper Hutt, our bookshop, and the greater Wellington Region. I'm hoping we get funding and then I can tell you all about it and start talking to some amazing local and regional authors … Continue reading Monday, Monday
I've noticed the amping up of Valentine's related emails. I see them. I delete them. Fuck right off with your made up bullshit. If you only show your person how you feel once a year, you don't deserve a person. The end.On a nicer note ... [Nothing happens here] received it's first review, a 5-star … Continue reading This Ain’t a Love Song

This one is called [Leave a Message] and it's another fun time with Ronnie, Crockett, and the Cronies of Doom.2. I … Continue reading Hello, to you!
Howdy. I've been binge watching Blindspot on Neon. I knew I'd love it. It's 100% up my alley. What I didn't realise was how much would be familiar to me, tech and also story wise.

I've been around long enough to know that some people are Bad to the Bone. There is nothing redeeming about them at all. I've written a few characters like that over the years. I'm sure AD Owen liked puppies the way Cruella de Vil liked puppies. (Byte reference for those who don't know who Owen … Continue reading Bad to the Bone

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 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 was talking about how writers minds work the other day, and how trusting yourself is important. How much a writer needs to trust their own brain to do what needs to be done. Some days are infinitely better than others in the trust department! Thing is, anything creative requires a certain amount of trust. … Continue reading The shitasticness of creativity.
It was not an easy task choosing a winner from the wonderful character suggestions. Was definitely a fun exercise.The winning character did need to fit into the story so far and I think the winner does that. Well, it's my story, so, I should know. 🙂 The winner is in bold type.These are the characters … Continue reading And the winner is …
