Painting, Promos, & Bill the Halloween Crow

Work is slowing down and the hours are drying up. I guess that’s good for you guys because I have more writing time. That I’m happy about. The lack of work hours, however, means a considerable depletion on my income. But it isn’t advised to stress about these things. We must continue on.

Besides, I am thankful for what I’ve got. A sentiment that was reinforced upon hearing that my fellow Katarr Kanticles Press writer and all round twitter friend, Tonya Cannariato, has sadly lost her beloved husky, Kyra.

So yes. Today writing shall be done on Baying For Blood. I’ve been creating various promotional pieces for it too. In fact, that’s why the blog has a new header image. What do you think?

Stationary Therapy

Hi guys. I’m not going to be very buzzy in this post, I’m afraid. I seem to be in a bit of a slump and currently there’s no way out and the more people ask me if I’m alright the more, inevitably, I feel like I must be pretty awful.

I know I’m not, though. I know I’m functioning pretty normally for the most part. I just feel a bit… not me, inside. And that’s nothing I can really help at the minute.

There’s no real reason for it as far as I can tell. It could be a combination of things or just nothing at all, as I suspect.

Mostly, I’m just a bit down. It’s not even really a feeling of being down. Just a feeling of nothingness, which is quite often a hard feeling to deal with. And the nothingness can be quite upsetting, especially when it’s pointed out over and over again.

So if anyone is asking: Yes. I am fine. Please do not ask any more.

Promo Bits, Interviews & Author Friends

What have I been up to lately? Well, let’s see. Work and visiting people. Not to mention seeing my parents. My mum is okay. Not brilliant, but she’s waiting on the doctors to sort her out properly. Scraps of writing have been accomplished here and there, but not as much as I would have liked.

I have, however, focused on creating a few promotional images for the existing books that I have for sale. Here’s one now:

As you may have guessed, this one is for Preying On Time. There are another two for that particular book, which I’ll post below.

They’re nothing amazing, but I wanted to be able to get across a bit about the book as well as catch the eye of anybody skimming through. The idea was to make colourful images with a snapshot of either the blurb or a small excerpt from the book itself.

Through The Looking Glass

I’m not endeavouring to be a copycat, but the awesome Icy Sedgwick recently wrote a post entitled ‘What Do I See In The Mirror?’ in response to another blogger. I thought I would write one too as Icy’s post was so brilliant when I read it. And, after all, she did leave it with these fateful questions:

How about you? What do you see in the mirror?

So this is me. On a good day, anyway.
