Magazine – March 2018

News & Previews

Changing Frequency

After several requests from readers, I will be sending email notifications for each new blog post as it goes live. So if you are a subscriber, I will drop a brief email with the link in your inbox every Monday, starting next week.

If you are not receiving my emails, please check your spamfilter and/or Gmail's 'promotions' tab! Apparently some providers have altered their algorithms again, which plays Russian roulette with if and where incoming emails are delivered. I'm trying to find solutions for this at my end, but ultimately the providers - or rather their computers - decide.

Introducing: REVIEW RAFFLE

Reviews are unspeakably important to all writers. No exception here. So as a 'thank you' for everyone who leaves an Amazon or Goodreads review on one of my books, I'm introducing the Review Raffle.

Follow the instructions to enter your review - good, bad, long short, doesn't matter - and at the end of each month I will draw 1 random winner!

The Prize: a $25 Gift Card of your choice! 

Amazon, Starbucks, your favourite book or fashion shop… If they sell digital gift cards, you have it!

On A Finale Note...

Payload - web size

"Payload" was one of my favourite stories to write for the Res Arcana anthology, so naturally it was high on my list to make into an illustration.
