Writing Update – August 2018

Thanks to a bout of simply awful flu I completely lost track of time over the past three weeks! Well, let’s just say an anti-viral and anti-biotic later and I’m finally free of whatever it was that I had. (Thanks to having chronic pain I didn’t realise I was getting ill, so it took a few days to get to the doctor…)

Rememberer of gods and kings

But, I’ve still been hard at work on The Paper for SASMARS and I’m almost finished after having a whole weekend and public holiday to focus on it. Now I’m just rearranging some stuff and rewriting things here and there to make it clearer to people who aren’t versed in medieval Icelandic poetry and literature! I really don’t want a lot of blank stares on the day…

The Angel’s Laugh – Patreon fiction

I’ve also at last posted the July Patreon fiction… From Friday it will be a public post, but until then only patrons will be able to read it.


This month I’m also taking part in the #TheMerryWriter on Twitter! Follow me to learn more about my writing and my stories.

And that’s about it. I’ve put aside Porselein and The Ruon Chronicles until after SASMARS so I can just focus on The Paper. Expect more updates on those next time!
