Jackson Lear grew up around the world and has developed an accent that can sometimes be described as mostly Irish, a fair whack of English, and a hint of American.

He considers 8am to be the middle of the night, has a habit of buying more books than he can ever read, and might have a go at being Batman if his writing career never really takes off. ...more

Perhaps the original ending I had before I began the story no longer fits, leaving me unsure of how to get to any ending, let alone the one I'm about to discard. If that happens I'll easily abandon the book for a while and jump to something else.

Eventually I'll return to the unfinished draft. I'll go back a couple of chapters and find the point where the story started to head towards total crapdom. From that point I will try and take the book in a new direction. As soon as I get to the end I can go back and make it look as though this direction was the plan all along.(less)

Finally, a book is almost out!

Believe it or not, I typed up an end of 2020 email and then never posted it. I suck at updates. Anyway, here are a couple of quick highlights before I get into the details:

Raike 5 (The Gentleman) is complete! I finished the alpha version way back in February 2020 and it’s taken a while for me to work on it after getting it back from my editor and beta readers, but yesterday I reached the last of t Read more of this blog post »
