New look blog

I’m having a bit of an overhaul of my blogs and therefore it’s time for a new look. You can now find all the information about Hidden Talent, including an excerpt from the latest draft, in the side bar.

At the bottom of the page you can find links to my main blog and website.

It has been a while since my last update but not a lot has changed. After finishing a substantial re-write to bring the novel to second draft stage I was forced, through various life commitments, to put it down for a while. I am hoping the break will actually help give me some perspective when I come back to editing.

At the moment I am working on some other projects and studying resources on writing technique in the hope that I will return to my beloved first novel as a more competent and accomplished writer.

You can find out more about my other projects over on my main blog.

If you have been here before you might notice that Hidden Talent Novella is now Hidden Talent Novel. I got a bit carried away with my re-write.

A new version of my working copy is now available for anyone who is interested in reading it and giving feedback:
