- I’ve had initial contact about editing for both ‘Snuff’ (a violent horror hovel) and ‘Eton Mess’ (an erotic novelette), so they’re going through the process;
- ‘Dana’s Children’ (a violent horror novel) has been through the editing process and is in the final stage of proofing;
- ‘The Footholder’s Tale’ is currently being edited.
In other news, I’ve sent my time travelling World War One science fiction story to a couple of publishers. I’m still waiting to hear back, but it’s a story I’m happy with and I’m hopeful of a bite.
The current work in progress, like ‘Andraste’s Blade’ ‘The Doe and the Dragon’ and ‘The Footholder’s Tale’ is a story set in Celtic north Wales, around the region’s myths and legends. It’s about a man who marries a fairy. The original story is flawed, with some highly improbably elements so I’m describing this as ‘based on…’ rather than ‘a retelling of…’ type story. The overlying plot, though, is great fun and I’m enjoying the challenge of writing some ‘straight’ historical fantasy and leaving horror completely behind. That’s something I don’t do often enough.
