Nothing much, I’ve finished another edit of Fire Betrayed and sent it for reading by my beta readers. It’s getting there slowly, but I want to polish it some more. I expect to be sworn at again.

Timothy Bateson is a sci-fi and fantasy author originally from the UK but now transplanted to the US. He’s hosting an ‘Author Spotlight’ post about me today. To coincide with this event I’ve put Hidden Fire on sale for 99p for the Kindle book. If you haven’t read it already take a peek today while it’s half price.
Fire Betrayed is out with my beta readers now.
I stayed up until gone one this morning because I got on a roll and got the second edit finished, and added a couple of extra scenes that before had only been summarised in the first draft. It was a case of show don’t tell and I thought it added to the novel to write them out rather than summarised.
Initial feedback is ‘good so far’. I’m waiting for more detailed feedback and constructive criticism from my beta readers.
And now I’m going to have all the naps because I am so tired. My dogs don’t like the sound of rain and wind. All night, and today, there has been rain and wind, so I didn’t get much sleep once I’d finished the editing.
Once I’m human again, I’m going to get on with the second draft of Charley’s War.
As you know, I’m writing a series of novellas to go with the FIRE Series, called ‘Tales from Erce’. The first draft of Bridas’ Justice is complete and I’m on the second draft of Charley’s War. I’ll be sitting down this evening to work on editing Fire Betrayed and hopefully more of the second draft of Charley’s War.
I have started Letters from Umar. Unfortunately, I need to finish writing Fire Storm before I can go much further with Letters from Umar because I need to work out the time line. And where everyone is. I need my maps, charts and timelines for books three and four.
