Snowflake’s Challenge 1 – Connecting
R.B. McConnell, or as I know her Bunny, recently launched a monthly flash fiction challenge on her own blog page. Each month, she will post a photograph to act as a prompt for our imaginations to work with.
Review – Song
Years of Rayph Ivoryfist’s work has just been undone. A black magician has attacked the prison he built and released his captives, some of the most deadly people in the kingdom. One of them has sworn to kill the king, who has already barred Rayph from his court. How can Rayph save a man who won’t even allow him nearby?
Author Toolbox Blog Hop – Branding Decisions
One thing that’s been on my mind for a while was about how best to develop and build my brand.

This month’s games were #AuthorConfession, #AuthorWouldYou, #TweepWriter plus all of the Truth questions and two-thirds of the Dares from #WIPTruthorDare.

Bubonicon 50 – Day Three
It’s always a shame when it comes to the last day, but like the saying goes, all good things must end.
Bubonicon 50 – Day Two
Two things always come into play on the Saturday. The first is how many additional books am I likely to buy from the dealer’s room? The second, and more difficult, is which discussions or panels am I going to prioritise over others? In the past I’ve dealt with this in a simple way, which am I likely to get the most benefit from? That might mean missing a reading or a Q&A but it’s the best measure I’ve come up with.
