Writing in the Garden :)

The weather finally allowed me to write out in the garden this afternoon. And it was glorious :)

Sweyne's Eye ~ 2016 (Part One)

My employer has sent everyone with medical issues home until further notice. I have decided to keep my mind occupied by making an early start on the next issue of my Sweyne's Eye zine.

Seems Strange...

It seems strange writing a Christmas ghost story in the sunshine:

Dawn Chorus, March 02, 2020

This is the sound that awakens us each morning. :) The audio recording was taken from our bedroom windowsill. Captured in the recording are the sounds of traffic, our neighbour's cat, a great tit, sparrows, a magpie, a blackbird, gulls, planes and chickens:

Fluttering Polythene #4 & #5

Continuing my photography series on polythene caught on barbed wire, here are two more images captured from my local water tower:

I think I have found myself a new project for a future issue of Sweyne's Eye :)

New Cover Designs For My First Four Folk-Horror Novels

March 03, 2020

Here they are - the new cover designs for my first four folk-horror novels. My fifth (Berserk!) was only published a few month ago, so I am still happy with the cover for that book. To celebrate the relaunch of these titles, they will be offered for sale at just 4.99 for the entire month of March. :)

March 1st 2020 - Time to Crack On

[Background reading] Well, I made it to the other side of winter. Just. Time to get back on track and also try and get my health back in some semblance or order...

March 1st also sees the end of my month long break from writing. I did use the time productively, however, and produced three photography zines during February. But although I enjoy photography, my real passion is definitely writing and it was with relief when my month-long abstinence from working on my next novel came to a close and I opened up my writing bureau this morning to continue work on Solstice. 'Tis time to crack on...

Oh, and in case you were wondering what that red and green thing is on top of my writing bureau, it's this Manor Ware ornament from the 1970s - one of my fondest items from my childhood:
