It's tough being a new author out there in a big wide world of readers. Sometimes it feels like shouting in the desert but those reading Descent Into Darkness so far are giving such great feedback that it keeps me going - if only they would post reviews :)

G.K. Parks G.K. Parks's blog:
When I first began writing, deadlines didn't necessarily exist. The simple fact was I wanted to write a novel.

I think Capaldi is off to a great start. The ending was so poignant and sentimental- I think it's going to stick with me forever. The writers of Doctor Who continue to amaze and thrill me and for that, the child in me will always be grateful.
