The novel is almost finished! Writing is never a straightforward journey. Here is a rough sketch of my recent writing experiences in graph form (‘Writer’s Mood’ on one axis, ‘Time Passed’ on the other).

I am surrounded by creative projects in various stages of completion. Here are some character sketches from an ambitious plan I had to write an illustrated novel.

Our beautiful heroine has been captured…

The Heroine

By a mean and pompous vampire-hunter…

The Villain

And held captive in a terrifying prison, where the guards keep watch…

Imprisoned!

Imprisoned!

Due to her association with the vampire with the smoldering eyes…

Don’t Let the World Pass You By

Don't let the world pass you by

Don’t let the world pass you by

 

It’s the return of the cartoons!

Writing, blogging, indie publishing, not to mention day-jobs, night-jobs, pets, kids, etc often seem to leave no time for anything else.

And.. a promotion!

“Midnight in Dublin” is available free on Amazon for this weekend only.

If you have not read the story of Lizzy, Alice and Declan and their strange night out in Dublin, Ireland, complete with parallel lives and mixed up destinies, this is your chance to get a free copy!

If you do enjoy the story, it would be awesome if you could post a review on Goodreads and Amazon. I’m sure Declan, the mysterious young man who wanders Dublin’s streets collecting souls, would be most grateful if you did…. 🙂
