Writing Update- April 2013

I’ve been busyI’ve completed the final draft of a new unpublished novel, Staccato House; I’ve written about 60% of another new novel and I’ve completed the final draft of a new novella. I’ve also completed a new collection of short stories, entitled Echoes and Exiles. A few of the stories intended for this have already been published online and in magazines; others are in the progression-stage of making it to publication- that purgatory waiting-room of literary judgement. Once all works have been submitted and found a suitable home, I’ll make the rest of the material publicly available as I think its deserving to be read- so I’m guessing that Echoes and Exiles will (hopefully) be ready to buy/read on various formats by the end of 2013.
