Hey guys, just a quick update to let you know what I’ve been working on.
As part of my New Years Resolutions post, I said that I would be writing a short story every month to practise my craft. I’ve done exactly that – January, I wrote a story and I’m well into work on the one for February.
I’ve really enjoyed doing some 5,000 word shorts so far – they’re easy to write and read, and I think they’re a great medium for experimentation with concepts and ideas that a full novel may be too much work (for both the reader and myself) for something that might not quite hit the mark in execution.
Anyway, I’ve decided that I will collate the short stories that I write into a collection which I will then place on Amazon (and other book sites in time) in the summer. The name for this first collection is to be Rememories, so keep a look out!
The five or six stories that will be in Rememories will be published for free on here on my site, but the collection will be a paid product, probably around the same price as Oranges and Lemons currently sells for (77p).
The idea here is to get more of my work out there and available to my lovely readers. I had intended to publish the first short story, The Boreal Singularity, by the end of last month but it’s with a trusted beta-reader and unfortunately is about 170 miles away from his notes for a while. I hope to have it out by about next week! If you want to know immediately when The Boreal Singularity is ready then by all means subscribe to my email updates (link in the sidebar), my RSS feed or go to my contact page and nab my Facebook/Twitter details.
Really looking forward to seeing what you all think about this idea!
