So a little while ago I made a jungle walker basilisk for my Imperial Guard army using Onager Dunecrawler legs. That left me with the top half of the Dunecrawler. Not wanting to waste a perfectly good model I set about making another Leman Russ proxy using a swamp base...

You may remember, my legions of followers, that I mentioned I was writing a novel called "Emperor's Justice" and that I didn't want to chuck it on Amazon Kindle as a self-published title because I felt I wanted to try and get traditionally published?

Well, I've taken on...

In the time-honoured tradition of blogs everywhere, I've let this fall by the wayside. This is because whilst I have been working on a novel, it's not one that I plan to self-publish.

I have enjoyed self publishing and all the perks that go with it, like complete creati...

I think I’ve said this multiple times over the course of my blog posts, but I’ve been reading the Gaunt’s Ghosts series for about 15 years now. It remains one of my favourite series of books. Picking up a new one feels like coming home, comfort food for the mind, takin...

I never really did a proper announcement for the (Amazon Kindle) release of Earth Remembers. Sadly, writing about WW2 in spaaaace where the enemies are giant alien slugs is not my full time job (or even a job at all); I’ve in fact been tremendously busy over the past w...

Earth Remembers is nearly finished; I have the artwork and I'm currently editing the penultimate chapter. I actually still have to write about 2/3 of the final chapter which will take a week or so, perhaps less if I get a good run at it. With one final proofread, I'm h...

So draft one is done at around 66,000 words. I expect this to increase to about 70 / 75,000 with the first redraft. I'm about a 3rd of the way through currently, making steady progress. I estimate that the book will be ready probably by the end of next month. 

In readin...

Quick update - tipped 51,000ish words. Slow progress at the moment due to various non-writing-related factors, but I am pleased with the writing and how the story is shaping up. Will probably be looking at a mid to late autumn release. I'll post a snippet soon....

Blasting out the words this week. Approaching 40k all in. Here's another excerpt to keep those appetites whetted--as usual presented pre-edit, pre-proofread:

They all looked up, human and slug alike, as something boomed in the air above them. The ground trembled, and a...

Still getting on with this - May has been filled with holidays and other social events which have really eaten into my writing time (I know, it's a tough life). I'm hovering on 30,000 words for Earth Remembers but I'm getting back into it now  and hoping to thrash out...
