My books. Now I’ve got visual confirmation I’ve created a page where more information about my books can be found. Yes, I know there’s only one at the moment but I’m working on the second.
It’s that time of year again where every waking moment becomes one long round of writing, revisions, grasping for the perfect turn of phrase or most appropriate euphemism, more writing and finally handing in the finished project to be read and hopefully passed off (without any typos or spelling mistakes). The deadline looms and as always I’mContinue reading “Revenge of the Day Job”

Today however I received my AFS, which stands for Art Fact Sheet. Before today I didn’tContinue reading “In Just Seven Days…”
