After my beta readers tell me I need a map for Cadoc's Contract, I make a map...then I tumble down the rabbit warren of fantasy cartography and ask myself why fantasy maps look nothing like their Medieval counterparts.

What I'm working on right now

As of March 2019, Cadoc's Contact, the prelude to The Lord's of Skeinhold, is now available and exclusive to Amazon and Kindle Unlimited. It is the first of four books plan I publishing this year.

I am now working on the draft of The Prince's Bastard, Book 2 of The Lords of Skeinhold. So far, it's going very well, and I should have the first draft finished by the end of March.

I have also been interview by my good friend, fellow Australian blogger and reviewer, Mark Timmony. You read the interview over on Mark's website.

I've published the March edition of Rosser's Reads, naming The First of Shadows by Deck Matthews as my pick for the month. You can read my review of the book and interview with Deck Matthews here.

I have also launched my podcast, The Bottom Drawer. You can subscribe on iTunes or Overcast, or listen right here in your browser.
