This is my first blog post. I am a writer and book reviewer, and write regularly for The Scottish Review of Books (http://www.scottishreviewofbooks.org/). I have also published book reviews in Gutter Magazine, The Skinny, and Waterstone’s Books Quarterly, and have printed short stories in Markings Magazine, Sein und Werden, and online at The Human Genre. I’m trying to get my first novel, Most Wicked Speed, published, and am currently working on a second novel, In Borderlands.
In this blog, I’ll post mostly about my writing and about the Sisyphean process of attempting to get published, and about anything I’m reading at the time. I might even write about current affairs, to the half-informed level of your average Guardian opinion piece. I’ll link to friends’ blogs, to sites or stories that interest me, and I’ll try to update it as often as possible. Feel free to comment, and be as vicious, unpleasant, or supportive as you like.
