The ink is dry so I can share that Val Nolan, my good friend and fellow Creative Writing lecturer, and I are writing a book together! We have signed with award-winning Luna Press to write a book about writing SFF sub-genres, addressed to students and newer writers, working title Spec Fic for Newbies. We're tackling a variety of sub-genres in Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror, with a quick & dirty history for each, a description of why it's fun to write, things to watch out for/consider, and an activity or two to get you started. Plus a couple of quick 'conversations' about those genres that intersect even more, such as Weird Fiction and Science Fantasy. Publication date is set for Easter 2023.

Mostly thoughts on writing and the creative life.
