I haven’t really done one of these for a while so it seemed like a good way to have a quick catch up.
Lets start with the fact it is 12 months to Peterborough and #TheDarkerSideOfFiction2017, I am so excited and now really it is my main focus for the future, I had planned on doing The Dragon’s Mark as stand alone book next however as I worked on the project it became clear it has the potential to be a series with a various characters taking the leads at different time, this means I am going to go straight ahead with the Queen Of Ages Trilogy, I shall be doing a cover reveal next Monday as well as announcing the launch date next in next weeks vlog.
OF course the writing is the most important thing but I cannot help but take a look for ideas for swag and of course the search for the perfect ball dress has begun.

I am so excited about the future and feel more positive than I have in a long time, make sure you sign up to the newsletter for your chance to get your hands on some bonus give away prizes and be first to know what is happening, I know I have not been very good at keeping up to date with them but I will be sending them out from now on the first of each month and every month one person who opens their newsletter will win a prize though the prize will change from month to month, so anyone opening the November newsletter will go into a draw to win a signed print copy of Voices Across The Void.
Right need to finish editing tomorrows vlog, had a slight technical issue as my memory card slot on the computer decided to die this morning so had to find the camera cable, I will not say how many wrong cables I picked up before finding the right one but I will say I swore.
Take care and if you dress up for Halloween post your pictures to my FB page I will set up a Halloween thread there.
Well guys the countdown really is beginning and over the coming weeks I will be bring you more from the other awesome authors who will be joining me in Peterborough next year at the first annual Darker Side Of Fiction event hosted by Hourglass Events. At the minute I am under no illusions I will be one of the lesser known authors there but I would of course love it if any of you can make it to either the day signing event or the evening ball, there will be lots of fun, give-aways, raffles and craziness.
So last night at ten this happened…
Yes the tickets went on sale, now if you are interested the link you will need is here… https://thedarkersideoffiction2017.eventbrite.co.uk
The event is being held at the Holiday Inn in Peterborough this is the ballroom though I think the decor shall be a little darker or course for our event, and anyone who does decide to come along to the evening event please let me know and we can arrange for you to be at my table should you wish
In the next twelve months as we countdown to the event there is so much to look forward too, my dark medieval trilogy will be coming out with the first part out this year and parts two and three next year, the print version of Voices Across The Void will be out for Halloween and there will be give-aways to come with that both here and on FB. For those of you on FB please come and join us on The Darker Side Of Fiction 2017 page where you can keep up with events and also grab yourself lots of give-aways, freebies and enter some cool competitions.
Apologies for colour settings on the vlog, I had been messing with the camera and forgot to change settings back, only realised after I had uploaded…

Quick vlog for you, then you can catch up on my resolutions for 2016 by clicking on the image below…
I have been very lazy but as a result you get two vlogs in one week, last weeks today and Friday’s as usual xxx
Okay so the only feedback I received on the book trailer confirmed my own gut reaction, the computer generated voices are not quite right, now don’t get me wrong I am not saying they will never be used again but I do need to spend more time learning how to modify the inflections etc which apparently should be possible with the programme I have, I just need time to learn how to use it lol. For today another premier this time a human voice narrating a story from Disintegration & Other Stories which is continued into Voices Across The Void.
