Still lots to get excited about…
I’m absolutely overjoyed that my short story, The Invitation, is to be published in this autumn’s issue of Weird Horror!
Although I’ve now returned to the second draft of my current novel-in-progress, it’s been fabulous taking a brief break back in Short Story Land, and it’s also been wonderful providing workshops in real life again. I had a great evening discussing editing with Fosseway Writers, as well as a fascinating afternoon creating unsettling characters at Bromley House Library. I’m very grateful too to Mike Cambridge for his incredibly kind comments about We Wait for Bromley House Book Reviews.
And there are more workshops in the pipeline. In addition to the incredible Halloween Writing Retreat that I’ll be co-hosting with Anstey Harris, I’m excited to be playing with Haunted Locations as part of the Other Worlds Writing Weekend on July 17th, at Nottingham Writers’ Studio.
If you’re interested in writing more intensively, I also have two summer courses coming up in August, with Nottingham Trent University. Start Writing Your Novel will be running over three days beginning on the 22nd, and Short Story Success will take place on the 25th and 26th.
It would be great to see you there (please follow the links for booking info)
