Shameless Self-Promotion (A Request)

A very wise friend of mine recently made an excellent point: subscribers to my website might not necessarily know about, or have checked out, my Facebook writer page. And this very wise friend of mine suggested that I ask said subscribers to give me a like over on Facebook.

I do post all sorts of different things there that you would not see on my website, including recent hands-on book research involving a cowboy hat and a goat. So…

This is me asking. If you’re a fan of my work, please consider following my page!

Writing Update

Since I’m here, I’ll let you know what I’ve been up to lately, creatively-speaking. (Except for the goat thing; you’ll have to head over to Facebook for the details on that one.) I’ve received a few — maybe more than a few — rejections on Provenance Unknown. However, it’s still sitting with a number of agents/publishers who had been interested enough to ask for more and I’m awaiting decisions from them. My second novel, A Year of Summer, is fully outlined and well underway. Find out more about both on my Books page.

Poetry is my usual go-to for shorter pieces, but in the past while I’ve ventured into writing short stories. I’ve submitted two of them to literary journals and one to a festival/competition. Fingers crossed!

Finally, I’ve been getting back to photography, something I’ve always loved. I’ve even submitted an image to a journal! Here is some of my work from the past two months. Want more? Have a look at my Photography page.

Thank You

I’m amazed and humbled every time someone reads my writing or comments on one of my photos. Thank you to all of you — I appreciate the support! And if you would like to connect, please reach out via the Contact page.

With love from rainy Victoria, British Columbia, Canada,

  2. Wow, photography is such a great skill to have, and those are some pretty interesting pics. It’s great to know photography because blogs become that much more charming, with all the personally-owned pics and all. Thanks for sharing!
