Hi Everyone, I hope you had a good year or that your next year will be better, or both. I've been doing a bit of writing lately but last year taught me not to make promises. I made a promise this time last year and reality smacked me in the face. All I can say honestly is that Bec4 is progressing and the end is in sight.
Those of you paying attention to such things will have noticed that Bec has not returned this year as I so hopefully promised in January. I was making excellent progress on a new Bec book and had every expectation of getting it finished well within a month or so.
Real life sucks. Over the last six months, I have had stuff happen that has pushed my writing for here way down my priority list. All I can say is sorry.
At some stage in the future (hopefully not too long in the future) I will pick up the writing and finish off Bec4. At the moment I am not writing at all.
I wish you a joyful Christmas and all the best for the New Year. For those of you who don't celebrate Christmas, I wish you all joy and happiness.
Bec will be returning in 2015. For those who have been waiting patiently, please continue to wait a little longer.
Congratulations to all of those authors who gained top billing in the recently announced Clitorides Awards. I'm familiar with most of the stories that won and they certainly deserve recognition. I am quite chuffed that my own story, Bec3, is included in that list so thanks to all who voted for it.
I have just posted a new story for the NIS universe. It's an idea I had several years ago and have played with a little during breaks from writing Bec. I need to thank Erik Thread for the excellent feedback that allowed me to improve the story as well as his editing.
