Thaumatrope

Posted on

Yesterday I was really pleased to hear that I’d had a piece of TwitFic accepted by Thaumatrope and here it is, published on their Twitter stream today. I was particularly pleased to hear about this one, because Thaumatrope were closed to submissions when I first joined Twitter, and they’ve only just re-opened. It’s also one […]

Mrs Darcy, Episode Thirteen

Posted on

… in which Wickham has a change of plan forced on him, is now published. There are some exciting twists and revelations ahead as the story really starts to get into its stride. Perceptive readers may also discern something with a vague resemblance to a plot beginning to develop. In other news, twitterers should also keep […]

Mrs Darcy

Mrs Darcy, Episode Twelve

Posted on

Running around like a loon at the moment, so no time to blog about much at all except the fact that Episode Twelve, with the disturbing title “Naked and Ashamed” has now gone live. But there’s something even more interesting coming up next Monday, when this blog hosts its first review and its first interview, […]

Mrs Darcy

Mrs Darcy, Episode Eleven

Posted on

Good Lord, are we up to Episode Eleven already? Not a lot to say about this one, apart from the fact that I am quite proud of the punchline, which emerged completely out of the blue when I was frantically trying to work out a way to end the episode. It’s nice when that happens.

The Best of Every Day Fiction Two

Posted on

Yippee! The anthology from the second year of Every Day Fiction has now been published, including two of my stories, “Mirror, Mirror” and “Opening the Box”. I’m really looking forward to reading it, as there’s still something better about reading a story in a print anthology as opposed to looking at a one on a […]

Fans of Mrs Darcy may also be interested in Dave Weaver’s somewhat abbreviated version of Pride and Prejudice, here. Whilst you’re there, do take a […]

Vestal Review

Posted on

Well, I’d completely forgotten about this one. Some time back, the highly prestigious Vestal Review put out a call for a new feature entitled Dirty Dozen. The requirement was for pieces of exactly twelve words in length with a slightly risqué theme. So I sent one, entitled “Opposites”, and I found out today that it has […]

Mrs Darcy, Chapter Nine

Posted on

… in which Mr Wickham meets a lady of the night and makes a startling discovery about the Mission, is now published. I was very amused to see the serial described as an “RSS Dreadful” at the UK Steampunk Network. Spot on, I think. Keep spreading the word, everyone!

12 Days

Posted on

Found out today that the “12 days” project that I took part in leading up to Christmas has now made it into print. So if you fancy getting yourself a copy of all 24 stories (two for each of the 12 days of Christmas), here’s the link. My contribution was “The Miracle at Hightop Farm”, […]

Mrs Darcy, Episode Eight

Posted on

… in which we hear more of Charlotte Collins’ predicament, is now up. Following on from a few helpful mentions in the on-line Jane Austen community (and, wow, there are a lot of Jane Austen-related sites out there – I had no idea), the marketing effort  has moved on to the wonderful world of steampunk.
