Half way through the silly season! ;)

Howdy folks!

Yes! I made it through the first part of the silly season . . . lots of family around . . . lots of good food . . . and a self-imposed exile from the internet for a few days . . . t’was all good!

Of course, I’m not going near a set of scales for a while . . . I think I’ll let things get back to normal first . . . which will be some time after New Year! πŸ˜‰

Anyhow, amidst all the mayhem I did manage to finally get that piece finished that I had been working on before Christmas, so now, even though it’s a few days late and hasn’t come back from my editor yet, I’m going to post it anyhow!

It’s called Joyride and is set in the Thompson River universe. It’s the story of the local cool dude who gets a little more than he bargains for when he takes a car for a joyride after the Christmas dance! Enjoy!

Please be gentle on me . . . there are probably a heap of errors in it . . . all of which are mine entirely, but once the edited version is back I will whip the rough copy out and replace it with the good one, so hopefully nobody will be any the wiser! mwahahah!

Anyhow, I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and holiday, and that the coming New Year is a good one for us all! I would also like to thank all of you for the messages and emails and support and suggestions and coersion throughout the past year! It has really meant a great deal to me!

See you all in 2016!!!

’tis the season . . .

Hello all!Β  Yes, the countdown is on for the day the guy in the big red suit flies in. Have you been good this past year? lol

I realise, of course, that not everyone observes this ancient pagan celebration (that was said tongue in cheek I hope you noticed . . . hehehehe), and I have no issue with that, so whatever the festive occasion is that you do celebrate I hope you have a wonderful time, and that the New Year is a special one which brings us all everything we wish for!

And as for what’s happening in my neck of the woods, I will be having family visiting . . . and after all the racing around I’ve done today I thinkΒ  I’m over it already! πŸ˜‰

I’m still having internet issues . . . I’m even trying a new ISP at the moment (which isn’t proving to be much better) . . . so between that and the fact that I’ve been snowed under with work this past month it means that my time online has been intermittent, at best, and my available time spent writing has been even worse of late. I was hoping to have a new Thompson River Tale ready for you by Christmas, but alas that hasn’t eventuated. It has something of a Christmas theme, so I will try and post it shortly, just as soon as I’m able to get it completed for you.

Okay then, that’s about all the news from here for the moment. Once again I want to wish you a Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays, or whatever it is you prefer, and I hope we can catch up again soon!

Take care!

Back online . . .

Howdy folks. Sorry I haven’t posted in a while . . . I’m having major problems with my ISP and being able to do very much online. Apparently they are doing upgrades in our area and speeds have been slowed right down (or I’ve been unable to connect at all), which has made it extremely difficult to even connect to the internet!

Anyhow, things are working okay today, so while the going is good I’ve managed to upload a new chapter for you of Sandmen (Book 2, Chapter 1).

That’s all I have for you at the moment, but I’m still trying to get some more chapters completed and will post them as they become available.

Happy reading!

Greetings all!

Hi folks . . . no, I didn’t forget about you last week! To be honest, I was working on re-writes and re-edits to do on a chapter that I wasn’t really happy with. It was bugging me and so I was simply trying to beat it into better shape before I posted it! lol

Anyhow, for better or for worse, I’ve now posted the next chapter to the Legends story, titled The Brothers. As I said, I had some difficulty with this story, but I have always promised that the tale of how the township of Thompsonville came to be would eventually be told, so here it is . . . even if it’s not exactly all sweet and light! (There! You have been warned! lol)

As this one is running late and my usual update day is only a couple of days away, there won’t be another update this week, so until next time, happy reading! And be good to one another! πŸ™‚

The next chapter of Legends is now in the hands of my editor, so it looks like that will have to be held over for next week.

Yup . . . running late again!

Howdy folks! Yup, I’m running a little late today . . . you probably should be used to it by now! πŸ˜‰

Anyhow, as promised last week, I have the first part of a new story for you this week . . . called Legends. It’s a part of the Thompson River Tales series, shedding some light on the old and new events, and will be told in three parts. The first part is called The Dare. I hope you enjoy it!
