I'm trying to get back into the habit of using this blog. I plan to write something here every Monday, even if it's just a short entry to keep the pot boiling.
Over the last couple of days I've been picking away at my work-in-progress, Little Red House. This story has been on my mind for a couple of years. I've prodded and poked and written a few hundred words, but not really gone at it with any real conviction. But yesterday a couple of revelations struck me and I've started working on it with a new sense of purpose.
I have some stories to edit and a new one to write for a short collection provisionally titled At Home in the Dark, hopefully due out early next year. A publisher has approached me about the possibility of publishing a limited hardback omnibus edition of all three Concrete Grove novels.
So things are happening. Slowly, but they're happening.
In other non-writing-related news, England have reached the semi-finals of the World Cup. I love football, so am enjoying the hell out of this.
