Intro Text


Welcome to the current home of my writing. Since my provider decided that the internet wasn't the place for personal homepages I had to find a new home for the stories. This may be a temporary home, or it might not. We'll see how it goes.

At the moment this site will be hosting my writing. There're some full-length novels in the stories section all in the Science Fiction and Fantasy genres. This content will be being fleshed out as I get around to transferring them and doing some formatting work to get the previews presentable. They're also up for sale on Amazon, so if you enjoy them you might want to consider buying as well.

 That took longer than I wanted.

I''ve been poking and prodding at Lies in Red Leaves for a couple of months, trying to polish the ending to a suitable standard. Still not quite there, I think, but I wanted to get this out before Christmas. So... Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and enjoy the final part of the penultimate installment of the Life of Riley, now available in the local stories section. There's one book left to come, tentatively titled Stand in Endless Circle, but that might be... some time away. In the meantime, I want to catch up on some unfinished business in some different universes.

Update time.

The long-awaited update to Lies in Red Leaves is available in the Stories section. Just be aware that Google has recently made some changes to Google Drive shares. This shouldn't affect the links for these documents, but if something isn't working just let me know. I've tested it and it seems to be okay, but these are the days of miracles and wonders.

And following this post there should be one more chapter in LiRL, and it'll be done. I do want to do some proofreading (and work on the cover) before posting to Amazon, so it will be while before it turns up there. And the next work in the pipeline will be... I'm not exactly sure. There's one more book in the Life of Riley to go, but there's also the end of Borderlines screaming for attention.

May the best man win.

Okay. Not Dead. Yay.

Just putting that out there. I was thinking I might be able to get Lies in Red Leaves finished off with one more post. That didn't quite work out: there's more to close off than I initially figured. So there will be a penultimate update coming Very Soon™, and then a final one after that. Not an entire year after it - the timeframe should be more reasonable.

November 2020

 An end-of-the-month update is here. There's another installment of Lies in red Leaves over in the stories section. Now, I won't tell you how much more there is to go, but this installment is in the denouement. The next book is in the planning stages, I know where I want to go with it, and that will probably be the end of this story arc. After that? No idea yet. Perhaps Catch the Knife. But I do want to get Borderlines finished up before then. And I do have to get some of those other old stories into formats that can be stored on this site. Yes, Godsend, I'm looking at you, you crusty old thing, you.

I'll see if I can get another update done before Christmas. Until then, stay safe and wear your damn mask.

July Update

The update to Lies in Red Leaves is up over in the story section. A little bit late as I wasn't happy with some aspects of it but couldn't figure out how to fix it. I think I got the worst of it, but I'll always be going back and polishing rough bits that stand out.

And thanks for the well-wishing. At the moment this country is relatively COVID-free, despite the best efforts of economists and marketroids who seem to know the cost of everything and the value of nothing. It's still  not over, and until a tried and tested vaccine is found, it won't be. That's still a long way off, and it's presupposing the virus won't mutate, or that another interesting bug won't come along to join the party. What was considered normal six months ago probably won't be back any time soon. If ever. But we have been taught some painful lessons and it'd be unspeakably wasteful not to take them to heart and learn from them. We can come through this better. So hang on in there and stay safe peoples.

Welcome to 2020, where we're all living in cities on the moon...Well, maybe not, but at least there's a new update to Lies in Red Leaves over in the story section.

Update to Lies in Red Leaves over on the story page. I think there will likely be changes to this section. As it stands, I'm okay with it, but think it needs some streamlining.

And I believe this site supports mailing lists, so if there's enough interest I could implement that so people are notified when there's a new update. And in other news, breaking in a new keyboard feels weird.
