SUPANOVA APPEARANCE – JUNE 15 to 17
Fellow NineStar Press author, Rebecca Langham, and I will have a spot at Sydney’s Supanova convention. We’ll be pimping our sci-fi novels, Beneath the Surface and Social Media Central.
So pop in and say hello if you’re in town. We’d love to meet you.
QUEER SCI-FI ANTHOLOGY
I have just found out that I will one of the lucky authors with a short story in the new Queer Sci-Fi anthology titled Impact. Keep an eye out for my story titled Civil War as one of the short reads in this upcoming compilation.
#PrideReads IN JUNE
I’m really pleased the way #PrideReads is taking off on Twitter. Keep an eye out for daily questions posted first by @NickiJMarkus during the day from Adelaide, Australia. Then check out
@kevinklehr, @Canuckbear88, and @TheoStClaire as we post at other times during the day in relation to our time zones. And feel free to go back and answer a previous question if you missed one.
Thanks to Baz and Vance who’ve invited me to be part of their GLBTI writers podcast, Wrote. Especially recently to talk about social media and why my latest trailer was banned from promotion on Facebook.
You can hear my three episodes HERE.
WRITESCAST INTERVIEW – MAINTAINING FOCUS IN MAGIC REALISM
I popped onto author R.R. Campbell’s podcast series, Writescast, giving advice on writing Magic Realism. He has an ever growing number of episodes with many tips for authors covering everything from writing to marketing. Just click the icon below to listen to my episode.
AUTHORS FIRST RADIO INTERVIEW
I had a great time chatting to Tony Kay on the Artist First Radio Network. We chatted about my most influential editor, why Guy the angel is the readers’ favourite character in the Actors and Angels series, and why the Nate and Cameron books aren’t your typical romance stories.

Thanks to Elisa and the Rainbow Awards for awarding Drama Queens and Devilish Schemes in the category of Best Gay Alternative Universe/Reality. Click here to read her comments.
WORKS IN PROGRESS
There are two projects I’m working on at the moment. The first is The Midnight Man which is about a middle-aged guy in an unhappy relationship who meets his perfect match. But the perfect match only appears in his dreams.
And I’m working on the sequel to Social Media Central, where Tayler is literally being hunted on the streets.

There’s a new site covering the achievements of GLBTI artists, and I was fortunate enough to be interviewed in one of their posts. CLICK HERE to read.
