Revisiting The Last Sin Eater

In November I spent a very long month researching and writing about Shropshire's last sin eater, Richard Munslow. After a couple of months' break, I've been digging out the story again to start editing it.

Aside from finding the usual plot holes, inconsistencies and things that just don't work, I've also been trying to pull out bits of the story to use in my latest assignment for my creative writing course. The current assignment is to do a piece of biography - and Richard Munslow is a fascinating subject for that.

Now I've just got to condense the month's worth of research and writing into something a couple of thousand words long!

Write for Japan now on sale!

The Write For Japan book has gone on sale this week to raise money for the Red Cross's relief work in Japan. The book has 34 short stories by 34 different authors from all over the world, including my sci-fi story Generation Three.

I'm really glad the book has gone on sale and that I could contribute to it. The disaster in Japan is one of those things you feel helpless about - you want to help and you don't know how. Without wishing to sound clich├ęd, it was a privilege to be able to join in with the project and do something that will hopefully raise a decent amount of money which can be used to help the people who have been caught up in the devastation in Japan.

If you like short stories and you would like to help support the relief work in Japan, please buy the book:
Lulu - £6.99
Smashwords - $3.99
Kindle - £2.86
• Createspace - coming soon...
