The Trinity Code – Three Not-So-Random Numbers in the Book

More than words

On World Book Day, it’s crucial that we all use the best and most powerful skill we’ve ever been taught – the ability to read. Books can take you to faraway places without taking a step; can show you things that are impossible to see; can make you laugh and cry and care for people […]

Well, wham, bam, thank you spam, but the joke’s on you. I’ll turn your realistically kosher query into […]

Novel word count progress bar

I wanted to add a word count progress bar like the one above to my blog a) to show people how THIS is progressing, and b) to spur me on. The whole procedure took a while longer than I had anticipated. To prevent anyone else having to spend too long trying to make this work, […]

Hot notes and cold coffee

  I spent the day trying to drink a hot cappuccino. This was a difficult feat considering what I was doing in the cafe for about 2 hours – plotting the bulk of the sequel to a novel. The ideas flowed, but the coffee did not. I’d dash down half a page of notes in […]
