A Specialist at The Recycled Heart – epub release date

Woo Hoo! Against all likelihoods, I've just uploaded an epub digital copy of 'A Specialist at The Recycled Heart' to Smashwords, for release on 12th September 2022. Out of order, completely not what was planned, but there it is. A Specialist is a kind of companion collection to The Garden Black. Speculative and out of … Continue reading A Specialist at The Recycled Heart – epub release date

Messing with book cover mock-ups

I thought it was time to do a bit of standardising of my book imagery. I think I've gone cross-eyed with the effort!

How to interpret a Teddy Bear?

I've put off trying to do a little video for the Bears book because I've struggled to be satisfied that I can manage the voices at all adequately. Oh well. Here is a link to a small reading I did today, and just managed to finish after many interruptions.
