I may or may not have mentioned in my last blog post that my car’s MOT was due. Well, as per usual, Pretty failed it. Sad times. She didn’t fail on much, but it was the fact that she failed on rust that has encouraged me simply to get rid of her. As Howard Bear pointed out, once I start paying for one lot of rust it will just continue.
Of course, this means it’s time to get a new run around. So I should probably introduce Alba the Almera, who is getting picked up tomorrow night.
Isn’t she quite pretty? She’s got a bit of a bigger engine so she’s a bit more costly on the tax and insurance front, but she’s also a bit roomier, which might be nice for future plans.

In case you were unaware last week, I was pretty snowed under at work. I’ve had long days and then I ended up called in on my day off, too. To say it was a hectic week for me is probably an understatement. And include into that the bi-annual performance review, too.

You may or may not be aware that Baying For Blood is pretty much finished. Next week will hopefully mean cover designs and such for it and we’ll be well on our way towards its release, which is so unbelievably great.
I’ve been working on Baying For Blood since I finished Breaking Cadence back in March of this year. As the sequel to Preying On Time, it’s been a long time coming, yet it’s also the probably the fastest I’ve ever finished writing a book.
I’m hoping that this sets a precedent; meaning I can finish more books over all and still to a high standard in a shorter amount of time. Winter at work is likely to be quiet, bringing fewer shifts and more periods at home where I can carry on writing.
And what exactly will I be writing next?

Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?
What? Oh no, sorry. We aren’t actually talking about Doctor Who. Shame really because I liked that Bad Wolf thing. No. We’re actually talking about the killer in Baying For Blood.
I’ll let you decide whether you think I mean Logan or someone else.
