The “Dammit! I wish I’d known that” Moment

(A few surviving tally sticks; the original “Stocks”)

It’s something that happens to all of us. After getting an idea, you work hard to put it together in the best possible form, you finish and feel satisfied, and then you stumble across something which – if you’d known about it at the start – could either have made the process much simpler, easier and quicker or enhanced the finished product.

How we will (eventually) beat online piracy

My writing update (The Erik Midgard Case Files Volume 2)

I have just settled on the title of the second Erik Midgard book. The writing is going well and “The Lost Libraries Archive” will hopefully be available in a few months. The ebook tags are going to be exactly the same as Book 1; science fiction, time travel, detective and murder mystery. To celebrate the sequel, I am going to be posting all the chapters of the first installment of Erik’s saga “The Time Traveller’s Ball” on Wattpad here for online enjoyment. I hope you all like it and as always I hope its as fun to read as it was to write. I will also be unveiling the cover of “The Lost Libraries Archive” here fairly soon.
