Rollercoaster

It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster this month.

I went from opening a JSA claim to employed to quitting to being interviewed to having a trial shift. And all of that within three weeks.

WordPress, Drinks, #Spn, & Freebies

Hopefully this has posted to Facebook. As some of you may or may not be aware, I’ve been having trouble getting my blog to post there. It seems that good old Facey keeps denying links to Blogger, which is incredibly annoying and part of the reason why I’m hoping to get a brand new website up and running soon.

In the interim, I’m crossposting my blogs both on Blogger & at a temporary WordPress account. You can visit the posts at either location, but, obviously, I’m hoping that we will have a better solution sooner rather than later.

Keeping it in the family, my brother and his girlfriend, Amelia Louise Carter (also a writer), are the guys that I have entrusted to create me the new website, so I really hope you’re all going to love it when it is complete. I will keep you updated on its progress.

Tricks, Treats, Writing, & The Martian

Well, it is nearly Halloween (Samhuinn/Samhain) so I guess I really had to talk about some trick or treating.

Of course, the trick bit is that I’m still not well. Although, remarkably, this evening I feel incredibly better than I have done. In fact, I feel a little bit brighter mentally, too. And less dopiness surely means that this is beginning to finally lift?

I cannot describe to you how glad I will be when the cough and the running nose are totally gone. Though, I have been able to breathe freely and with no running nose for the last hour; so keep your fingers crossed for me!

Unfortunately, I did bite my tongue last night. It was such a stupid thing to do, but I was so tired and hungry at the same time that I wasn’t really concentrating in any way, shape or form and thus managed to draw blood. My tongue has been subsequently pretty sore all day and anything hot has stung.

Publishing Anniversary, Dad’s Birthday, & Sick Again

So it’s been just over two years since I published my first story, thanks greatly to Katarr Kanticles Press, online as an ebook. That first tome, though short, seems to have been especially well received over time. It was Desecrated Bonds and it marked a journey into the unknown (illustrated below by a shot from the drive to my dad’ birthday meal).

The journey so far has led me to sell seventy books. Maybe that doesn’t sound like a lot, but it’s seventy more books than most people ever sell and it’s seventy more than I’d sold two years ago. And, if I’m honest, I don’t think that’s too bad!
