My current project is something a bit different from a regency romance. I am compiling a selection of my science fiction short stories, written over the last couple of years, and brought together in this anthology.
Many of them were written as entries for various Smackdowns. A Smackdown is an elimination-round competition, where the participants are provided with a series of prompts—anything from pictures, to quotations to song lyrics— a sub-genre, and a word limit.
Smackdowns are a lot of fun, as well as suggesting plots and characters which are outside a writer’s usual comfort zone.
At this stage I am planning to release the book in July 2015. Watch this space!
