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. That's pretty handy for someone who lives in Australia. 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.

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)

Raike 5 is nearly done!

Hey folks,

Good news, I’ve just finished the second draft to Raike 5! I hope to finish the third draft in mid-February, then it’ll go to my editor and beta-readers, and with any luck the book will be out … who knows when? Things often go awry so I won’t really have a concrete date until after I get it back from my editor. And I still don’t have a title, so lots of pacing will be involved until I fi Read more of this blog post »
