Forgive the short blog post: I have to go to bed, I'm Being "observed" in class tomorrow, which is technical for "my boss is going to watch me and decide whether or not I'm worth employing". Sleep is needed ;-)

Ooops!

Damn! Spent 90 mins recording B&S Episode 4 only to discover afterwards that my microphone hadn't been plugged in to the PC!! The internal mic had recorded me instead and it sounded awful. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to do it again tomorrow. Such a pity; it was a good read :-(

First Look at the Hardback Cover by M.J. Hahn

Here it is, a first look a the cover of the hardback edition of Underwood and Flinch, as designed by the sublimely talented M.J. Hahn. Like the first podcast, this book will contain both Volumes 1 and 2 of the U&F Chronicles. Neither book nor cover are finished yet, but this is essentially what the cover will look like when it comes out later this year.
I can't say when it'll be out yet; not only is there still work to be done on this cover, but I'd like to release a paperback at the same time to give you a choice of which edition you'd prefer. Hey, maybe you'd even like to get both :-)

My huge thanks to M.J. Hahn for all the hard work he's put into this - and the other covers he's designed for my ebooks. If you haven't heard his wonderful podcast works, then do check them out today, right here: M.J. Hahn's Latchkey Tales.

For those of you jonesing for the next episode of Blood and Smoke, good news is that the first finished draft is now written and I'll be editing it and recording it this week. I'm also hard at work on the novel that follows it (let's call it U&F 4). Oooooh yes, my friends - the Chronicles will be rolling on for at least 5 books, probably more. So do your bit for the cause - download Salvation and Other Stories and share the link to the store with your Facebook and Twitter pals! I thank you!!
