Mini Podcast #1: Where I Ramble About Audiobooks, Rewrites & Moving House

Hey guys, I told myself I wanted to mix things up content-wise this year... So here's the first attempt. I figure I'm far more likely to do mini audio clips regularly than videos, so here goes nothing.

On Writing And Editing Sex Scenes In Fiction

Since getting stuck into the structural edit of my novel, I've been doing a lot of reading about sex scenes in fiction. When should they be included? What makes them work?

Monthly Recap: March 2015

I'm going to end up saying this every time but - the last 30 days have been so busy! With my father's birthday, my parents' 25th wedding anniversary, my sister's 21st and cousins' combined 30th and 40th - it's a wonder I got anything done between all the family commitments! But get things done I did... My Book: ...
