Ten years …

This year marks my tenth year in this industry. Obviously, my journey began long before 2009 because, well, you don’t write a book overnight. Nor do you learn your craft, overnight. My journey began in about 1992. It began because I wanted to read something with real women in it. I wrote a lot and then became serious about this storytelling lark. In 2001 my first short story was published. (Yes, back in the dark ages with gatekeepers and whatnot.)

Around about this time of the year in 2009, I approached Rebel ePublishers in South Africa. (Yay for the internet!)

This year is the tenth anniversary of Killerbyte (April 2009) and the tenth anniversary of Terrorbyte (Nov 2009). They are the original publishing dates. Even though, we tend to say terrorbyte was 2010. It wasn’t. The paperbacks came out in 2010.

The tenth year! That’s supposedly a magic time. Any second now and I’ll be an overnight success. I know, right? Exciting stuff.

Ten books, 1 novella, 3 boxed sets, 1 book of poetry, I don’t know how many related short stories, all in the Byte Series. [Never mind the earlier short stories, or the kiwi novel, or the long shorts, that are unrelated to the series.] The work is there and continues.

I’m as prepared as I can be for instant success. Bring it on. 🙂

Ten years with a main-character like Ellie – could be medal worthy!

Get in there, folks! The latest Byte Novel – Qubyte releases on Dec 30th! You want to be up with the play before that drops, so you know the buzz is about. 🙂

Trust me. I’m a professional.

Undivided

Hey there!

This is what I’ve been busily working on for the last few days, an Ellie Iverson short story called ‘Undivided’.  Exciting right?  The story is available in ePub and mobi digital formats from Smashwords. (Link after the image!)

Last night I wrote The End. Such joy. Then sent it off to beta readers who gave it the green light this morning. It’s now live on Smashwords. 

This story is intended to fans of the Byte Series, unlike reading the shorts in ‘Torrent’ this will not bridge any gaps and enable a new reader to jump into the series at around book 5. 

Undivided assumes you know the characters and the current situation. This story follows Metabyte and is intended to be read before Qubyte is released.  It’s a bridge to Qubyte. You’ll understand when you read it. 🙂
