Alright, exams are done for now and I’m back on vacation. Work on Wyvern Diary is going well and if I keep up my current work rate, I should be done with the raw manuscript in two to three weeks. After that, I plan on talking to some local publishers here in SA and hopefully get Wyvern Diary traditionally published. Until then, it’s hard work and trying to finish the last lap of this race. I’ll be getting back to usually scheduled blogging shortly.
Thanks for reading and have a nice day.
The two women sat with their feet dangling in the water over the edge of a wooden bridge. The little stream remained a surprisingly clean fixture of the abandoned, overgrown garden, the water supporting ducks and all manner of local fish.

I’ve decided to show the audience more of what I’m all about with Blackout. I’m including twice the amount of short stories in it now, with a wider variety of tones and themes.

Thanks for reading and enjoy your day.
