D is for Darkness #AtoZchallenge

Darkness, the city is a sprawling metropolis.  Split into six districts, Elliot and Morrigan work in Precinct 1, which covers District Soho and District Chana. Elliot is homicide – to give you an idea of what they deal with, som data suggests that Glasgow has 3 murders per 100,000 occupants (Amsterdam was twice that – […]

C is for change

Change is something that is a constant in my books.  It sounds funny, but change makes compelling fiction, and change drives decisions. The biggest change for Elliot occurs over the course of Glass Block, while Harper’s timeline changes over the course of several books, as does Morrigan’s. I think what makes it all so intense […]

B is for Books #AtoZchallenge

One of the major things I was really concerned about was longevity for the books.  I didn’t want to just spend a couple of books with the characters I created, so I spent a lot of time before Nanowrimo 2003 thinking about what I really wanted from the books.  And every year, they just grew […]

A is for Alpha males (and females) #AtoZchallenge

So here’s the deal – for the next month, I’m going to be talking about all of the elements I’ve worked on to create a great story – and I hope it excites you as much as I am to share it all.  There will be fiction, introductions, backgrounds.   Front and centre to all […]

The home stretch – Woooohooo!

I’ve shepherded many authors though this, so you’d think it would be easier for me, but of course, when it’s your own book, it becomes very difficult indeed. But… In the next day or two, Glass Block’s ARC’s will be available.  That represents the final print/Ebook format for my book, and means that I’ll have submitted […]

#AtoZChallenge overview

Starting April 1st Author Interrupted is going to be taking part in the 2015 Blogging from A-Z challenge. We’ve taken part the last few years and to be honest, it’s A LOT of fun. Monday through Saturday ( Sunday’s off for good behaviour catching up on new blogs) I’ll be taking part on not one, not two, but FOUR blogs, launching my book, and running a page a day for some Camp Nanowrimo participants.  Plus all the usual duties I take part in.  It’s going to be a blast! I will be utilising all of my tech to do this…

#atozchallenge – and you can win too!

I’ve recently posted on various blogs that I’m releasing Glass Block to the world.  So, there’s going to be an A-Z of Darkness PD this coming month – everything you need to know about the book and the characters and of course, the things that you need to know, and of course, a bit about […]

#AuthorInterrupted welcomes Rachel Thompson #Mondayblogs

Kai’s note – Rachel’s honesty and beauty in her outlook helps her advocate for those who may not otherwise feel they have a voice.  I’m honoured to host her today and share her story.  And not only is Rachel an amazing writer and advocate, she founded #Mondayblogs, so it’s great to share her post today, during #Mondayblogs   Why should someone who hasn’t had similar experiences read the book?  Thank you for hosting me, Kai! One of the reasons I wrote Broken Pieces, and the newly released Broken Places, is to give people an idea of the aftermath of living…
