A Bit of Morning Research

 I do love the research stage of writing a story. So many coalescing ideas. So many paths to choose from. Which route will I follow?

Solstice 2 Research

 Making the most of a stormy autumn morning by doing a little research.

Story-boarding Solstice Story 2

I started story-boarding my second tale of Solstice today. This is the first major scene in Story 2 (there are a couple of minor set-up scenes preceding this) and details the hallucinatory occurrence that really gets the action going in the story. This is also the scene that is explained more fully (and rationally) in the third tale in the portmanteau series of connecting festive folk horror tales that will eventually feature in my forthcoming book Solstice. 

Story-boarding Solstice Story 2

I hope to get this second tale, which is titled Amanita muscaria, published initially as a stand-alone story later next year. In the meantime, the first title in the Solstice series, The Dryad, is available to purchase now from Amazon.
