A bit of a delay...

Gah! So close!

Yes, June 2016 has come and gone and The Dead Ringer hasn't hit the shelves yet.

No, don't panic!

Nothing is wrong with my lovely little tale of murder and intrigue.

It is just the vagaries of the publishing industry meant my publisher decided to move about release dates. And so I must wait a little longer for my launch date. We're probably looking at early 2017, which feels SOOOO far away right now. But, patience is the name of the game in this job. Everything takes time. And Liberties Press is such a great publisher, that I am more than happy to do what they feel is best.

In the meantime I'm pretty busy anyway. I'm on my holidays from college right now, but come September it's into my final year, so I will be up to my eyes. And at the same time, I am writing book two. I also occasionally look after my children and feed them.

Here are a few illustration and drawings from year one of my diploma... (why? Sure, why not?...)
