CommuniTea Steampunk Weekend.

Three days of steampunk fun and community, and I’m exhausted! I caught up with some old friends, and made new ones. The event was run via Zoom and Discord. I’m not great with tech, so I loved this combo. I just had to click on the posted Zoom links, and it was easy to find…

Guest Blog Post at ‘The Passing Place’

The bad… the good… and the soon to be revealed

Okay… the bad news first: I doubt I will have A Fey Tale polished enough for publication before the end of the year.  Then there’s the beta reader round and final editing… Yes, blame Covid, if you like. It sucks. Depression and anxiety suck (the words right out of my head). I’m now aiming for…

The Serendipity of Procrasti-research Comes Full Circle

This article was first published in March 2016… and finally the research has found its home.

Isolation tip #8: support your local creator writer

Many authors and creators have had events cancelled, and have no income. Support your local writer – buy their books, sign up for newsletters, join in on talks. Support other creators – buy music, buy art. Follow and chat on social media. We’re all in this together. Hugs to all. https://youtu.be/mlRKBkFCtN
