Smashwords Interview

What do your readers and fans mean to you?
Readers are everything, which sounds obsequies but it's true. Without readers, the stories I write are nothing but an emission. Readers transform the story into something magical. There's a transaction that happens between the author, the characters, and the readers that is pure alchemy.

Authoring can be very lonely and it's riddled with fears and insecurities. Fans quieten those demons; they validate the huge expense of energy, life force and time that goes into writing.
What are you working on next?
I am currently working on three projects, each very different. I am about a third of the way through Book 3 of The Meadowsweet Chronicles, called 'Devilry', I am writing the closing chapters of 'I Defy You, Stars!' which is part of the Shakespeare Collection - a series of standalone contemporary romance novels, and I am about two thirds through my adult horror novel called 'The Crow Man' which I am going to be publishing under the name John Kay.

As well as writing, I run a micro-publishing house and we are really proud to be working alongside the folks of UTOPiA, and its founder Janet Wallace, on a very exciting anthology.

2016 is seriously busy. I am also working on establishing one of the very first YA and NA Reader, Author and Blogger Cons in the UK called Chapter.Con, which is a huge time gobbler, but very, very exciting.
