The one year anniversary of The Butterfly on Fire: Mind, Body and Soul is coming up in May!
The sequel is coming along nicely as well.
To celebrate, I’m running a promotional campaign to literally “spread the word”!
To anyone that wants to get involved, I will give a free copy of The Butterfly on Fire: Mind, Body and Soul up until the anniversary itself. The only condition is that you promise to pass that copy on to someone else when you’ve finished with it (and ideally get them to do the same).
Check out my official Facebook page for details of how you can get a free copy of The Butterfly on Fire: Mind, Body and Soul and help me #spreadthewrittenword

For the wiccan and pagan community, Halloween means a new year and a new start.
I’m gonna’ try a dry November… hmm. Good luck with that! Haha
Also, I have finished the first draft of my prologue! Woohoo! I’ve been so busy, that that’s about it really. Hopefully work will calm down and I’ll be able to do some more soon!
Am I the only one that gets this?
Sunday Night Blues… it’s when you’re all set for work or school the next day, but you have this overwhelming sense of apathy or even distress. Perhaps it’s from the week to come? Perhaps we’re not over the week that’s been? Either way, it can be really saddening sometimes…
So, it’s 21:49, and I just had dinner. My work bag is packed, my nails are painted and my hair is all washed in preparation for another week. I just can’t get this weird sense of the blues out of my head. Sunday nights always seem to make me feel low and melancholy. I’ve had it since I was younger. How about you? I just get this sense that I’m not ready for the week ahead. Another week. Another month. It all just seems to be rolling into one.
That’s why it’s good to have long term goals, right? Like a holiday, or a project. I always find that working on something like that on a Sunday allows me to look past the Sunday Night Blues and think about the bigger picture. I’ve been making some great progress with my sequel – and am still in that fun planning stage, when I get to make all the cool new characters up. Tomorrow is just another day, yes, but it’s full of possibilities. Anything could happen. That’s one of my favourite sayings. I truly believe in it.
So, here’s to everyone that currently has the Sunday Night Blues. I hope it doesn’t get you down too much, and that you all have something long term to take your mind off of it!

Ok… let’s take a look at some actual writing, shall we?
I wanted to share this paragraph with you all, as it’s one of the most important parts of the earlier chapters.
What do you think?
Ever felt closed in? Trapped?
Ever missed someone? Or not missed them?
Tell me if this speaks to you…
So… it looks like I’m writing a sequel!
I know. Crazy. I can’t believe I’m here.
Until now, I’ve not made a direct post on this website. However, after a revamp I’ve decided to start The Blog on Fire. The main point of my novel The Butterfly on Fire is the theme of a “journey”. For this new blog I want to portray the journey of me completing a sequel. The next edition in the series. The continuation of the LGBT themed, fantasy story that is The Butterfly on Fire.
Lots of my readers and fans asked me “I need to know more! When will I get a sequel?”. For a long time now, all I could say was that my own story hasn’t progressed enough in itself for me to be able to write a sequel. However, eventually I found that I’ve been saying the same thing for such a long time that I could indeed start a sequel with bells on top! If anything, it’s going to be even longer than the first!
I have a fairly solid idea of the direction that I’m going in, but let’s not give away all of the goodies in one blog post… that would be no fun.
Further updates are coming, I promise.
Never in a million years would I ever have thought that one day I would be sitting here writing my second novel. Thank you to all the readers out there who have shown such interest in my work.
