December Wrap-up

Well, that's another year nearly over and what a year it's been.

The Highlights

Back in January, I made my freelance copy and content writing business official by launching my website. I never expected it to take off as quickly as it did.

After taking part in a Camp NaNoWriMo in July and receiving a critique from the Faber Academy in August, I finished my novel, re-naming it, Haven Wakes. It's currently doing the rounds of UK literary agents.

Haven Wakes has also been entered into the Bath Children's Novel Award competition.

With that novel put to bed for now, I started on the following novel, Haven Journeys - set partly in Iceland, and with selkies and genies for Steve and his friends to deal with, this is a continuation of the adventure that began in Haven Wakes.

The Lows

After running my murder mystery playwriting business Murdering The Text for 21 years, I decided to call it a day in November.

I'm not the same person I was when I started the business and I want to shift my focus, and my effort, to copy and content writing, and my novels.

What next?

Besides working on my business, my main writing focus for 2019 will be Haven Journeys. Alongside that, I'll be investigating self publishing Haven Wakes if I don't receive any interest from literary agents.

Merry Christmas

I'd like to wish you all the best of festive breaks and a promising new year.

This is my last blog post for 2018 so I'll leave you with my favourite blog posts from the year.
