Perfect World series

Perfect World began life as a side project to my novel Demon’s Blood which I was writing at the time. My preferred method of writing is to have a couple of projects on the go at once, this helps prevent me from getting writer’s block and if I do get it I can jump from one to another rather than not get any writing done at all. To begin with it was meant to be a standalone novel, but as I began to write it started to take on a life of its own and became the Perfect World series.

There are many themes running throughout the series. There are warnings over the manipulation of human genetics, the impact of climate change and what isolation can do to a nation. There is also the developing relationship between protagonist Eric Rawlins and Book 1 antagonist Adam Larimore. Eric worries that Adam is only using him whilst Adam, recognising that his feelings for Eric are genuine, fears that they’ll get in the way of his plans for revenge.

New Kitty!

Over the late August bank holiday weekend I visited my local cat rescue centre and adopted a new friend. Her name at the centre was Matash because of her little white moustache, but I’ve shortened it to Tash. She was a bit nervous at first but soon settled in just fine. The centre think she’s about 5 years old. She’s very friendly and a little greedy! And she already follows me everywhere, and loves exploring and playing!

Just over a week ago we lost a beloved member of our family. There are really no words to describe the pain of this loss. So instead of words I have posted a few photos of when he was most happiest; ‘helping’ me write whilst using my laptop case as a cat bed, stealing food or helping himself to crumbs on discarded plates and jumping on pillows just before bed time. He is, and always will be, much loved and terribly missed.

 

Grandad’s Shop

Quite a few years ago my Grandad used to own the newsagent ‘Rapsons’ in a street in Chichester, West Sussex called ‘The Hornet’. It has changed hands and uses a few times now since he owned it and up until recently it used to be an Art Gallery. The newest owners are in the process of renovating it. Whilst doing so they uncovered the original 1890s shop sign that had been preserved underneath various newer signs that had been added over the years.

My Dad enjoys researching local history and he uncovered some history about the original shop and its owner.

My first tattoo!

Getting a tattoo has been something I’ve wanted to do since I was eighteen and today I finally got one! It’s Super Sailor Moon henshin’s brooch in honour of my favourite anime, but with a couple of modifications that my tattoo artist suggested! I’d be lying if I said it didn’t hurt, because it did but it certainly wasn’t as bad as the blood test that I had to have earlier this week!
