The Last Few Months

As you know my blog page has been quiet of late. This is because, as well as appearing at many events already this year, I have been a little swamped on the work front.

At the moment my day usually consists of 8-1pm = my own writing. After lunch = Telos Moonrise editing and sometimes early evening I go back to my own work. Normally this would be a 7 day week, but due to the amount of events I'm attending it is more like 4 or 5 and so I do feel as though there really aren't enough days in the week, let alone hours in a day. 

Earlier this year I sold my alien versus humans trilogy The Jinx Chronicles to Telos Publishing. The first book Jinx Town is due to be released around September this year and will have cover art from top artist Jim Burns. I am therefore working on the second book in the trilogy Jinx Magic with the hope of delivering to Telos early next year. The third in the series Jinx Bound, should be completed and delivered by early 2016.

As well as this Telos released my darkest novel yet The Darkness Within: Final Cut in February 2014. Originally written for audio, this is an extended version and contains some gruesome and sexual content that was omitted from the original text. For all formats click HERE

Last year I accepted the role of Commissioning Editor for Telos Moonrise and their new imprints, Criminal Pursuits, Steampunk Visions, Dark Endeavours and Sinful Pleasures. We have spent many months acquiring new and exciting titles for all of these imprints which has involved a lot of reading, editing and design in order to bring you these beautiful new books. What I couldn't have anticipated though was the unbelievable response we are having to the Telos Moonrise imprints. Our first titles have now hit the shelves and Telos Moonrise under the Telos Publishing banner is massively expanding this year. We have even expanded into Romance which also includes a very big name historical romance writer! But more on that later when we are ready to announce ... But I am pleased to say we now have Romantic Encounters as our newest imprint. This means that I am also going to be EXTRA busy on the editing side as well!

For more news on Moonrise titles please visit Telos Moonrise to see what we've been up to!

As well as all of this I have been asked to write screenplays for Zombies At Tiffany's and Killing Kiss with a view to options. I took some time out of writing the new novel (Jinx Magic) to begin work in earnest on Zombies At Tiffany's and I am now halfway through. It's slow going, due to the small amount of time I have for my own work at the moment, but hoping to finish this first draft very soon.

Other news ... KAT ON A HOT TIN AIRSHIP, the second in my Kat Lightfoot Steampunk Mysteries, is now available on Kindle.

Well that is all from me for now ... have to go and pack for Sci-Fi weekender 5 this weekend. Maybe I will see some of you there!
