Happy Halloween

Or Samhain, if you prefer.


This is Nikki, in her Halloween costume (she doesn’t normally have the wings and tail). She’s going to be the star of the book I’m writing for NaNoWriMo. And she’s dressed up for Halloween just for you. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.


NaNoWriMo 2017

I’m doing NaNoWriMo again this year. That means I’m doing something different, and you may never get to read it. I’ve had a bad history with writing things for National Novel Writing Month which I end up being unhappy with. In fact, I’m having another shot at something I’ve done through one November before.

We’ll see where it goes, but you get another Fox book next month whatever happens.



Messing about with DAZ. If you follow the link on the picture, there’s some more explanation on the DA page.

Terribly, Terribly Quiet

As someone pointed out, I’ve been rather quiet recently.

That’s partially because I took a holiday. It was sort of a working holiday since I was scouting out Cornish villages for the next Reality Hack book, but it was a holiday. I needed it. I’ve been having trouble holding focus. So…

The current state of play is that I’ve picked up the Fox Meridian book I was writing, and that is (very likely) going to be the next one out. It’s currently called Dominance, but I’m not absolutely sure that title is going to stick through to publication. I just ground to a halt with the Ultrahumans book, though there’s a chunk written and I mean to get it and its sequel out as soon as I can. I’m going to add a new section to the ‘What Am I Doing’ page called Doldrums; it’s for books I have plotted and partially written, but the wind has gone out of their sails.

The Reality Hack sequel has some chance of coming in the next few months, though I still don’t have the precise course of the plot worked out. I was wandering around Cornish villages (and driving down roads that get narrower, and narrower, and narrower…) and having great ideas, but they don’t make a whole book yet.

So, that’s the update. It’s been an absolutely miserable day here in Manchester and I feel like someone sucked all the energy out of me. I’m falling asleep in my desk chair. This is never a good thing and results in really bad neck ache. I am going to do something to try and wake up before I go to bed.

What? It made sense to me.

Fox Character Art

Click through the image to take you to the collection. I think I got most of the recent updates in.


Eden Burning


The seventh book in the Fox Meridian series is out now.

Misfit Witchart

You asked for it, so I did it. Mostly. Someone wanted a picture of the tanglecats and, sorry, but my modelling isn’t up to feathered cats. My modelling is barely up to cubes and planes. Sorry this took a while to get done; I’ve been up to my eyeballs in getting the next Fox book sorted.

Anyway, more Misfits artwork, including Ramona, Azuria, Cadenza, Scintilla Rainshadow, and some Krystal-in-scales shots, including the concept art for the epilogue scene.
