Thomas H. Brand is a writer and project manager, living and working in London. In his spare time he gets confused as it was so long since he last had any spare time he’s not sure what to do with it.

Originally from Hampshire, he now lives in North London with his wife and a series of fostered cats. He finds he spends more and more of his time sitting staring at the computer screen or notebook page. He loves every moment. When he isn’t doing that, he can usually be found reading things other people have written instead.

His novel "The Serpent's Eye" and short story collection "The Æther Collection" are both available now in paperback and e-book.

There will always be the occasional day where you have to admit defeat and give your mind a break. Better to relax and get no writing done for a day than spend a day struggling to write words you have to completely redo the next.

I find that the best way to fight writer's block is to move on to something different. The joy of writing short stories is that I tend to have at least a couple of pieces on the go at once. If nothing comes for one I can move on to the other.

Or sometimes you need to give your mind a complete palette cleanse. Write some poetry. Some flash fiction. Anything quick and easy. It doesn't have to be any good, and you don't ever need to touch it again. Just mess around and put out any old rubbish. All you need is to get the brain flowing. (less)

Currently I am working on my collection of short stories; The Æther Collection.

This is a collection of stories set throughout the previous century, all based around the mysterious element of Æther. These are horror tales, with a little bit of science fiction in there as well.

These will be published as a full collection once they are all done, but for now you can read a selection on my website; thomashbrand.com. (less)

The Wheel of Time Reread: The Great Hunt

And we’re three books down in my Wheel of Time re-read.


[image error]I was pleasantly surprised by The Great Hunt. For some reason I recalled this one being one of the weaker in the series. Looking at it now, I think I thought this was because in many ways the plot is a reflection of the first book; in The Eye of the World Rand and the others run across the world from something, and in The Great...
