#AmWriting - in pics 1

When writing there is always an element of research - no matter the genre or setting. For me, a part of research is to look at images that show the visual detail of what the characters are seeing. Often these images are beautiful or gruesome; whatever they are I frequently want to share them!  So that's what this post is about. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I did :)

This week I've been editing my standalone fantasy novel called 'The Raven'. In this novel we follow the life of a clan who live in tree shelters. These mud-hut like structures have to be built in old trees with thick boughs that could support such a shelter. Like this one - beautiful pic!

I've also been writing the sequel to 'The Viscount's Son' in which a new main character stops by Notre Dame to observe the gargoyles on its rooftops. Fascinating!

Pictures - they're a great way to research.

An interview with Renay Allen

I've been lucky enough to be interviewed again, this time by fellow writer and blogger, Renay Allen. She asked me some questions about my latest publication 'The Borderlands: Journey' and what it's like to be an Indie. You can catch the interview here.

While you're there you might like to take a look at Renay's online serial with the intriguing title of 'Breath of Sirius'.

Thanks Renay!
