Clarkson vs Thunberg, who’s going to fix climate change?

Fri 06 December 2019

What I'm working on right now

As of July 2019, I'm making headway on the first draft of A Man at Arms, book 3 of The Lords of Skeinhold while The Prince's Bastard mellows for another month before I revise the manuscript. A Man at Arms is looking to be meydarkest story yet, so if you love your fantasy with plenty of gore and horror, stay tuned!

I've got a painful bout of surgery next month, that will make it difficult to talk, so I'll be putting The Bottom Drawer on a brief hiatas, but keep your eyes peeled and your podcatcher ready for the next episode!

I'll also be posting my first Scrivener tutorial soon.

As a teaser, I'm also thinking of projects beyond my current series and Weaver of Dreams. I'm building a new PC workstation for mapping, and will start world-building very soon!
