News and work in progress

Current progress: updated November 2018

Superstruct, my debut novel, has been re-outlined to give it a more consistent and mature tone. The re-outline is now with Harry to check over.

Meanwhile I’m editing Control Lock, my novella about a surveillance state taken to its extreme conclusion.

And Seat 14C is still sitting at first draft stage until I can clear a bit more of the backlog.

Superstruct – Instant Reality Book One

This is the first major foray into my series that started with Hypercage. I’ve now completed the first draft, submitted to my editor Harry, and following his feedback I’ve created a re-outline of the novel. This describes which chapters to cut, which to leave and new ones to add. I’m now waiting on his feedback before continuing the editing process.
