I’ve just submitted the final draft of my novel, K A R A to Amazon, ready for the Kindle edition to be published on 31st. Wow, feels weird after having worked on it for over two years. You can pre-order it here:http://getbook.at/KARA
Offer no offerings and taketh away thy groanéd ovations
divorc’d from any true tribute to Truth.
For a screaming silence which doth scratch at thy ill-fated orations
be far preferr’d to hollow words uncouth.
–Me (being all poemy and shit)
This playlist acted as a soundtrack to my writing of K A R A. The songs represent many of the themes and symbolism of the story. Many are songs I personally like, others helped me at the time to get into a particular head space to write a certain scene.
K A R A is available to pre-order from Amazon now.
I’m reading Joss Whedon: The Biography by Amy Pascale at the moment and I’m wondering how many other Whedon fans there are out there and — more to the point — what’s your favourite Whedon series? Buffy is mine and that show was certainly one of the inspirations for the main character in my new novel, K A R A.

It’s 100 years in the future and a ten-year-old girl sits huddled in her bedroom, nightmarish memories of her past life flashing before her. Her name is Kara Reyne and she is a supernatural; one of the small percent of human beings who have developed abilities that science cannot explain.
A totalitarian One World Government is ruling with an iron grip, but environmental and economic collapse have led many to breaking point.
As Kara grows up, she realises the time has come for her to fulfil her destiny; a destiny which has spanned the entirety of human history. She is the one human soul entrusted with the secret to creating a mystical substance, one grain of which could power an entire city forever and free the people from their reliance on Government.
Kara faces an arduous journey and there will be great loss, new friendships and incredible revelations along the way.
