The Colt Accepted!

I have just finished the contract signing process for my novel, The Colt which has been accepted by Torquere Press. It sure has been a while between drinks, as we say down here in Australia, but it is such a good feeling to have the book contracted!

Of course now, the real work begins with edits, marketing information and cover art discussions all lying ahead, but I am excited to get it all happening. What a great start to the new year. There is one of my goals achieved already!

Stay tuned for further news as the weeks progress.

The Colt

Well, finally I have finished, edited and subbed The Colt! It feels like I’ve been working on that book forever. I haven’t, really though. In fact, there was a period of about 12 months where it just sat idle and unfinished in my WIP folder and I didn’t do a thing with it. It was stuck with just a chapter or two left to complete it and I had no clue how I should write those chapters. Eventually, the muse came through though and I got to the finish line.

With a total wordcount of 73,642 words, it is the longest work I have completed to date. I am proud of the characters who both grew and changed so much throughout this story, and I can’t wait to see them out there for my readers to enjoy.

It has been a looong drought, but hopefully, the wait will have been worth it!

You can get here via or either address will work.

I’d been thinking of moving to WordPress anyway so here I am. I’ll do my best to keep this blog updated on a semi-regular basis, but if you get bored with this one, you can always catch up with my life on my alter-ego’s blog at

In other news, I have just agreed to re-sign The Keeper with Torquere Press for another two years.

Not much else to tell you here, so I will quit rambling and go find some wholesome pursuit to occupy myself with.
