I'm delighted to say that I'll be joining the team of reviewers at Hub Magazine, and am eagerly awaiting my first two books fro review.  I'm really quite excited about this, and looking forwards to making a start.
Hub is a great, free online magazine, published weekly (yes, weekly), currently on issue 62,  with genre news and reviews, and short stories.

This was a great afternoon, with readings from both authors from their books.  It's great to see short story collections being published and I made sure I had my copies.  Thank you Elastic Press.

I'm an infrequent attender of these events but this one was a lot of fun, well attended by many friendly people, including Molly Brown, fellow T-Party members Gary Couzens, Gaie Sebold & Rosanne Rabinowitz, the author Eric Brown, and Ian Whate, of NewCon Press, who managed to sell me one of his books too, and of coursde Andrew Hook from EP.  I'm going to make sure I go to more.

Molly's partner took some pictures.  You can see them here.


It's been a long wait to hear from the agent and it's still going on!  Meanwhile I've plotted a new novel and created all the main characters, submitted some unpublished short stories to some magazine and competition markets, and have spent the last couple of weeks turning an old idea into a story.

I've also written a web site for the finished novel.  At the moment it's secret, it's out there and published on the web so you might stumble across it, but there's no 'official launch' for now.
