Month: November 2017


           It’s always time to Go Indie Now.

Joe Compton very kindly interviewed me a month ago. Joe runs/owns/publishes/creates/”does magic” over at the GoIndieNow website. His YouTube channel now has the “Time to GoIndieNow Episode 21” up for viewing. It is a wonderful video that features Independent Writers and artists.

Here is his blurb for the latest video:

“Welcome to “Time to GoIndieNow”. This is Episode 21 of the flagship show but the first with it’s brand new more “grown up” title. 21 is a number synomas with upping the stakes but also maturing into roles that don’t always allow your creative energy to be focused in one area. In some sense we are all part timers, while we may give everything to our art we do have a sense to live our lives and enjoy moments that aren’t always about art. That is an important distinction and a line we all must and need to draw.” Joe Compton, 2017.

If you check out the video description, you will find Joe links to all the indie artists’ media sites and provides all their contact details. How wonderful is that? The Indie community is such an amazing support group. Thanks, Joe.

If you are impressed with Joe then please reach out and tell him. You can find him here (see that? I’m copying Joe):

If you want to skip right to my interview then click here but the entire video is worth viewing. The video quality of my interview is my fault for using such a cheap-bum video camera thing-me-bob. Joe does a wonderful job hiding me, lol. I should invest in a new video camera…

In other news, I should hit 50K in NaNoWriMo today. Another shout out to the MLs for the Ottawa NaNoWriMo gang!

New Author Interview

The Dorset Book Detective was kind enough to want to interview me. The interview can be found here. Many thanks to Hannah Stevenson for approaching me to do it. It’s always a pleasure to talk about me, me, me. Haha! Just kidding. It actually makes me cringe a little inside. BUT, it does get the word out about my New Druids series.

In other news, I am just shy of 40K words in NaNoWriMo for my fourth novel, Freamhaigh. I am loving that NaNoWriMo forces me to commit to 50K words for the month. It’s just the right amount of chutzpah to motivate me. My last novel dragged in my writing and as such, I was very late in publishing it. No more! Freamhaigh is scheduled for an early May 2018 release at this rate. That’s my goal and I will stick to it. Promise!

I would like to shout out to the Ottawa Chapter for NaNoWriMo. The MLs planned and hosted a couple of write-ins at some local Barrhaven cafes. Great atmosphere for writing. I also now have heard more about female superheroes than I ever did. Thanks, ladies!

Emailing Trees

Emailing Trees in Melbourne, Australia.

I love this story posted in The Atlantic. I’m not a tree-hugger, but I love nature and understand the importance of trees to our continued existence on Earth.

In other news, NaNoWriMo continues! I’m now up over 30K words in Freamhaigh.
