The Revolution Diaries Part 10

Welcome to the belated edition of the Backroom Bulletin. I had some internet issues last week which kept me offline for a few days. But hey, better late than never, right? The week started with me finally getting to do the publicity I’d planned, namely getting some photos taken at Bookworms, the bookshop where myContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries Part 10”


The Revolution Diaries Part 9

I began the week by switching around a few more of the introduction chapters of the final book in my Scorched Earth Trilogy. I think I’ve knocked that part of the book into shape now, but I’m sure there will be more chapters which I’ll need to switch around later in the book as theContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries Part 9”

The Revolution Diaries Part 8

Since chapter four of the final book of my Scorched Earth trilogy has been proving a bit of a slog, I decided to put it aside and work elsewhere in the book for a while. The question was where? While I was pondering on this, I realized I needed to introduce another character, which meansContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries Part 8”

The Revolution Diaries Part 7

It has been another semi-slow week of progress while I struggled to continue through the fourth chapter of the final book of my Scorched Earth trilogy. However, I must be positive, I am still making progress even though it does feel like I’m drilling through rocks in this particular chapter. So to boost my outputContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries Part 7”

The Revolution Diaries Part 6

If last week was the most productive week on the third book of my Scorched Earth trilogy so far, then this week was the least. It started with me taking a few days off and when I slowly began to get back to working, I started with a few random lines in random chapters beforeContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries Part 6”

The Revolution Diaries Part 5

This week turned out to be surprisingly productive as I continued working on the final book of my Scorched Earth trilogy. I say ‘surprisingly’ because at the beginning of the week, it certainly didn’t feel like it would turn out that way. In fact, it started off quite slowly as I began to work onContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries Part 5”

The Revolution Diaries Part 4

I began the week by finishing off the fight scene I’d been working on last week, before moving on to chapter two, which I’d already started, adding the opening paragraphs and some dialogue to the middle of the chapter. Then, since I was still in a fight scene mood, I wrote another big fight sceneContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries Part 4”

The Revolution Diaries part 3

Fight scenes were the order of the day this week, and I spent much of it working on the final big fight of the third book of the Scorched Earth trilogy. As I write this blog, I’m working out the last half of the fight, with the outcome already written. What also has me excitedContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 3”

The Revolution Diaries Part 2

I began this week with a visit to Somerset West Public Library, in my home town, to donate the first book of the Scorched Earth trilogy, Scorched Earth: Arrival, adding to the full set of my books to date that they already have on their shelves. As I was leaving, I reflected on how ironicContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries Part 2”

The Revolution Diaries Part 1

Last week I finished writing the second book of the Scorched Earth trilogy, Scorched Earth: Takeover and I’ve already begun working on the third book, Scorched Earth: Revolution, while I’m going through the final editing stage of Takeover and waiting for the cover. I’ve discussed some of my creative process previously, but now, having justContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries Part 1”
