The game is afoot! A new Sherlock anthology

I've been waiting to post about this until the ebook version is out, and now I can! The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories, Volume XIV, is out in ebook, paperback, and hardback, and I have a story in it! I was rather chuffed to receive a hardback contributor copy in the post a few weeks …

Run out of books? Don’t despair – it’s the Mystery & Thriller Book Fair!

I don't know about you, but all of a sudden it's pretending to be summer here: we went to the beach today (writing this to post on Saturday morning) and it was suncream weather! Every so often I take part in one of these online book fairs, and I always find something new - a …

It’s my 3-year self-publiversary today! 12 reflections…

I noticed about halfway through this morning, in the midst of running errands and nothing much to do with writing, that today is my 3-year self-publiversary.

Why I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year

It feels weird to say out loud that I’m not going to be taking part in NaNoWriMo this time around. Admittedly I haven’t been writing long, in the grand scheme of things, but NaNo in November, and Camp NaNo in April and July, formed part of my goals and targets and gave a bit of …

Happy self-publiversary to me!

I only noticed this about half an hour ago (it's latish afternoon here in the UK), but today is my 30-month or 2.5-year self-publiversary! Yes, two and a half years ago I unleashed The Secret Notebook of Sherlock Holmes on an unsuspecting world, and then, well, I just kept going. 30 months feels like a long time …
