Coffee, christmas trees, and cranking out the publications

Hello friends,

Since I last blogged, I have moved house, drunk the equivalent of an olympic swimming pool full of coffee and lost my hairbrush. I’ve just about finished with the unpacking now, and am starting to notice that Christmas is coming. (Where did I put the Christmas Tree? Please tell me it’s not up in the loft!)

The good news is, I’ve got two short stories out. My Christmas short, The Snowpersons is in a free anthology called ‘A World of Joy‘, published by Grey Mouse Publishing. A World of Joy is a collection of holiday-themed short stories, celebrating joy, hope, renewal, and love. The anthology contains stories from multiple holiday traditions and we all had a lot of fun putting it together. Check it out, it’s free!

My other short story is called Vampire Driving School and is in a charity anthology called ‘In Vein’. All proceeds go to St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and all stories are Vampire themed. Scary stuff!

In self-publishing news, Write. Publish. Repeat. is out this week and well worth a read. It’s written by Sean Platt and Johnny B.Truant from the Self Publishing Podcast. If you haven’t already checked out their podcasts, they’re a great source of inspiration, as long as you don’t mind a bit of profanity and that one of them laughs like a gazelle. Personally I like gazelles.
