Well, after a dip that I think was caused by Amazon’s rollout of Kindle Unlimited, sales seem to be picking back up again. I have no scientific answers as to why, but this Christmas I had a look at a relative’s Kindle with online lending enabled and the experience of searching the Kindle Store for […]Read More Rambling on about my Kindle sales again
Writing time has been kind of bitty lately, due to a combination of moving house twice in six months and recovering from FINALLY getting Heavy Ice out there. However, we’re now somewhat unpacked and I have a room to write in that feels like a room rather than a corner of a storage crate, so […]Read More Hello!
Did you ever have a group of friends who you liked to hang out with, some of whom also liked to hang out with someone you weren’t all that keen on? Someone you met at parties and might say hi to, but probably wouldn’t invite to any parties of your own? The friend didn’t have […]Read More That Awkward Friend Of A Friend

It may feel as if people are demanding things from you that you find outside your range of competence, not what […]Read More Note to future self
I’m a little over three-quarters of the way through editing the second draft of Heavy Ice, and… somewhat less than that… of the way through breaking in a pair of lace-up boots that were originally a pair of ice skates. The two processes aren’t that dissimilar, though those of you who have been there all […]Read More No megafauna were harmed in the making of this post.
I will go back to blogging about writing soon, I promise. Click to embiggen. A better look at my Saturday daytime costume, including beautiful leather holster from Vontoon. What I wore to the ball. I’m not really sure what I’m doing there, I might have been looking at some stars. You can’t really see the […]Read More More photos from Asylum
