Out Of The Shadows – A Bit

Posted on Updated on

I can’t say that January 2013 has been my favourite month.  In general, it’s been just a little rough.  I had expected to leisurely edit and perfect my sci-fi/fantasy novel, Shadow People.  Instead it was a month of serious illness and other unexpected evils.  On the plus side though, I’ve made the most amazing new friends, and learned that most people in the world are most cool indeed.  I’ve found that friends of old are more than rocks.  I send much love to you guys.  I lost my beloved turkeys in a devastating way, and have only lately been able to look my three little survivor chickens in the eye.  But all in all, I think I’ll be just fine.


Shadow People will be live on Amazon for your reading pleasure from around six in the morning, Zimbabwe time – that’s the only time I know really.  It was published while the mystical words, “Dear God, please don’t let there be any typos.” were recited most enthusiastically.  I really hope you like it.  I will say that there is no doubt in my mind that Shadow People will carry on.  Natalie has much to do yet, and the universe really needs a lot more work.  I find myself unwilling to leave the beautiful Lapillus and her inhabitants, so book two is already semi-formed.


In this celebratory state of mind, I would like to give my friends my other two short tales on Amazon.  They will both be free on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th February.  Not necessarily science-fiction/fantasy like Shadow People, but I hope you will enjoy them anyway.  I apologise for my two day absence friends, and thank you for letting me back in.

And if you’d like to read Shadow People…..


Till next time friends.  xxx

    Jo is powering into orbit with her new novel Shadow People. Better strap in now I think.
