Life has suddenly gotten... busy. Not that I mind! It's fun in a strange kind of way.
Recently I've gotten involved in an event which is running next June. Held aboard the HMS Trincomalee, it's a Steampunk event which will be confined to this nearly 200 year old frigate. I'm currently looking for authors who want to take part doing readings in the captain's cabin. So far there are 4 of us and there's room for 12. It's going to be pretty fab I think!
Then, in the past couple of days, a friend got in touch and has asked me to write the back story to a table top game they're working on. I've never really been all that involved in table top games, but I've always been fascinated by them. So it's a good opportunity to branch out and give something else a go. And who knows, I might just turn out to be a gamer!
On top of that, there's still the day job as well as editing Book 2 and working on Book 3. The inspiration for Book 3 comes and goes. At the moment I'm working on a bridge scene, tying two parts of the story together. To me, it feels as though nothing is happening plot wise. But I keep forgetting that I know where the story is going and, while it may be boring to me, it's probably a lot of fun for those who are reading it with a fresh pair of eyes.
And how I love those fresh pairs of eyes! They've been such a help over the last few months, picking up plot points in Mars on the Rise which need correcting in Selling Mars. Hopefully Selling Mars will be the book they were looking for in Mars on the Rise and they'll enjoy it. Can't wait!
Anyway, it's time for a cup of tea. If you want one, the kettle's on!
