Dark Moments

The title sounds far more depressing then the reality.

Dark Moments is the online Publication for Black Hare Press. And my latest drabble has been put up. It’s a free online Publication so there’s no reason to hesitate in going and checking it out 😉

My latest Dark Moments Drabble is called Bloody Mary – The theme is Dark Fae. I enjoyed writing this one quite a lot.

Read Blood Mary for free.

Book Club

September book of the month

Before I was a writer, I was a reader. A devouring-anything-I-could-get-my-hands-on type of reader.

The problem I had was that there were no representations of myself in the books I found. There weren’t many books I could see myself in, and even fewer I could access.

Now a days there are so many more books with such a diverse range of representations, but it’s not always easy to find people to talk about them with.

So instead of trying to find them, I decided to run a Facebook Les Fiction Book Club. *insert wide eyes and deep breathes now*.

It’s all new, and it’s really exciting. Being able to talk about books that feature characters I can relate to … it’s a little like heaven.

If you’re interested by all means jump on over to the Facebook group and see if it’s for you. https://www.facebook.com/groups/lesfictionbookclub

I’m going to be talking to author Jae about ‘Wrong Number, Right Woman’, our first book for the group, this coming Monday at 8:30pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time).

Writer’s Retreat

I recently went on my first ever writer’s retreat. It was a simple three person unprogrammed trip away in a cottage surrounded by trees and the sound of birds.

It had been many years since I spent a night away on my own. With 2020 being what it is, there was a chance we wouldn’t be able to do what we wanted. However, things came together beautifully and I spent three days in the company of two other amazing Aussie authors.

By the end of the weekend I had written over 6000 words, had two uninterrupted nights sleep and discovered how relaxed I can be around like-minded and talented human beings.

It’s been an eye opening adventure on many fronts, and I hope to be able to do such retreats often in the future.
