So, I was checking out the competition today, I think mine could definitely slot in around the number 1 spot lol
Well an update on the word count this weekend…. drum roll please… did you guess right….
Saturday I finished on 5,215, today 3,631 so total of £8,846 if that adds up, I’m tired. Grand total of 53,906. they say an average Thriller is approx. 80,000, so the numbers are racking up. I think I am about 5-6k away from the end of the book and then the rest is going to be back content, research etc that I need to add in. My main aim was to get the story down and I left (DO THIS LATER) brackets for stuff I wanted to go back to, I also have all my notes that I need to check when I edit, to make sure the timeline works and characters haven’t discussed something they didn’t know (if you get my drift!)
I started writing this book on the 28th March, I think it was, not bad going.
Anyway I am tired now. My next blog I will try and update my thoughts on the Stephen King book, just got about a chapter to go to finish that. I also might drop a few hints about my book and my plans for the series…
So any publishers reading this, I am nearly ready.

After living in various parts of the UK, including Wakefield, York, Derby, and the Yorkshire Dales, I now live in Nottinghamshire on a Narrowboat. I enjoy reading, writing, travelling, walking, kayaking, watching all forms of motorbike racing and socialising (networking).
At the beginning of my writing journey, I started a blog which tracks the ups and downs of writing, trying to get published and self-publishing. I need to mention that my blog posts are usually visited by ‘Brackets’!
My fantasy series, Festival of Time is now complete with the publication of Book Three: Battle in November 2022 which now joins, Festival of Time: Book Two: Rescue, and Festival of Time: Book One: Escape.

In 2021 I signed a digital publishing contract with Saga Fiction and now have three stories published on their app and Power of Nature is my latest thriller/mystery novel to be published by Saga Fiction and is available on Kindle and Kobo. Another story is coming in 2023.
I am part of a wonderful writing group in Newark: Fosseway Writers and I have a story in The Brinwade Chronicles, which is a collection of 28 Gothic stories by 13 writers. I’ve also contributed to a Fosseway collaborate novel, Burning Old School Ties and our latest anthology, Blood, Sweat and Typewriters They are all available on Amazon. We are working on our project for 2023.
In February 2019 I was lucky enough to travel to New Zealand. During my time there I wrote a journal about our bucket list 43-day adventure. This has now been turned into a travel guide: 187 Kilometres, turn left - now available on Amazon.
A Christmas Wish, is my third self-published story, which came to life after I’d published a Game of Souls in December 2018. My short story, A night lost to the past, won third place in the Newark Book Festival 2018 writing competition, which was run by the Fosseway Writers group. This was well received, and many readers asked me to develop and expand the story. A Christmas Wish and A night lost to the past have now been reedited and have been published with Saga Fiction.
SagaFiction : One novel currently in editing / Short-story for an Anthology in progress.
Fosseway project 2023 : Writing about buildings in Newark - I'm planning to write about St Mary Magdalene Church.
I'm very excited to start rewriting my psychological series, which will hopefully be published in 2023!
