What’s coming in July?

Well, other than Camp Nanowrimo? (if you’re local to me, you will have your invite to the server – if you’re not, part of my local crew, I’ll also be running on WayWard InkSlingers, and you’re welcome to join me there! There’s sprints and all sorts of fun.

And I’ll be launching some new projects and new things that people can get involved in – three anthologies, a PPC project and The Indie Summer Club! More on that later though!

21 Healthy Habits


One of the hardest things to do, once you’ve lost your way, is to find it back.

Existence Oblivion


Can one soul prevent Oblivion?  Maybe with a little help from her friends
Maebh had discovered early on that of all the things she had to deal with, sometimes using her middle name was easier than explaining why “Maebh” was a trick name. So she was Mae to her close friends, Hellenna professionally (Siobhan, again…arguments).

And that’s just for starters. I’ll be sharing daily writing prompts, support for writers and artists as they take part in Camp Nanowrimo, and adjusting to new normals and more. Plus, adding a few brand new websites to the mix.

Get ready for your next book crush!

When I started writing ‘All my Friends are Reapers’, I never thought it’d turn into what it did. It’s a huge, sprawling story of epic proportions so far. And the first book is released at the end of the month too!

From there we’ll be running a modified rapid release cycle of approximately three months a book, over the nine pantheons and main storyline at the centre.

We kick off the whole thing with Existence Oblivion, where you get to meet all of the Reapers, the Dieties they serve, and discover why this is going on, but most of all you get to meet Maebh, and maybe, Jax, who definitely appears in Rogue, the next book in the series.

Who’s the book crush?

I’ve been asked this by a lot of my alpha readers – whether it was ok that they’ve all got different ‘book crushes’ in the series – and honestly, that’s the best kind. Whether you’re team Mae, team Jax, team Amara (who is the woman with the husky on Snowblind). Whether you end up enjoying any and all of them is the most important thing to me, after writing books. So…the book crush is YOUR choice!

We’ve announced three so far – Existence Oblivion, Rogue and Snowblind, and tomorrow, I’m going to share a sample!
