November update 2: fiction, non-fiction, and courses

Can you believe it’s almost December? (Of course, Black Friday is still looming in front of me and, with it, the fear that I will actually have to go to the shops sometime on Friday, but I digress.)

I really feel like I’ve been running around like a chicken with its head cut off for most of the month, mostly because I’m fitting in a lot of work between flares I’m getting thanks to the heat waves we’re getting. And when I do type during a flare I feel like it’s in slow motion, which is irritating beyond belief.

Fiction: Shards of Mirrors

But, good news! Shards of Mirrors is available on Noisetrade Books! (If you want to know how to get your book on Noisetrade Books, I did a blog post over here.) You can also get a copy of Shards when you sign up to my monthly newsletter over here. More fiction! News! Writerly stuff! Special offers! And only one email once a month!


I’m also getting back to writing about crafts, but I first want to have a few posts together before I post on Trebles on my mind again.

There are also more book reviews than I dare to count. But I’m taking them slowly and one at a time. The same goes for finishing #WritersTag at last. Sorry, that it’s taking me forever to do properly!


Online courses are evil. Ok, no I’m only joking. I just keep on signing up for too many all at once. So it’s really all my fault. Futurelearn and EdX offer free online courses – the problem is, most sound really interesting to me. Bother. But, anyway, I was taking the podcasting short course to help me not only when reading stuff for Patreon, but also to help a bit with audio when I’m writing my radio drama next year.

I’m also busy withsome short courses through Udemy and Shaw Academy, for writing and digital marketing.See what I mean? Too many courses at once! Ha! Luckily I can finish some on myown time!

Until the end of November, however, I will be focusing mostly on Porselein and, hopefully, I’ll be able to post a proper map for the story next week!
