It's been a while.

So I've written a couple of short stories and one of them - Dull Fire - has been accepted for a pro-rate anthology.

My story Bits and Pieces will appear in Stephen Jones' Zombie Apocalypse: Endgame!

Work continues slowly but surely on my novella, The Grieving Stones. I'm writing this one for a US publisher, and hope to have it finished by the end of May. I was asked to write a 30,000-word novella that gave my own spin to the haunted house sub-genre. I'm writing a lot of haunted house things lately. Luckily ghosts are a favourite theme of mine...

The Quiet Room, my novel in progress, continues to stutter and stall. It isn't the novel's fault; it's mine. Real life keeps getting in the way and I don't feel able to give it the attention it requires at the moment. Hopefully things will improve on that front soon.

There may or may not be a new short story collection in 2015. I've been asked by a publisher if I'll do one, but it would mean writing a lot of new stories for the book and I'm not sure I can commit to that. We'll see, we'll see...
