Review Blog: The Legend of Korra

With the internet as full of negativity as it is I thought I’d break my own mould (yes, I have been known to be negative) and write a review about something I love. It also just so happens that I finished watching the Legend of Korra last night. Spoiler alert: I loved it. I’ll try … Read moreReview Blog: The Legend of Korra

Inspiration

Someone recently asked me where my stories come from. I immediately replied with “from my misspent childhood.”. No one laughed. I quickly thought about coming up with a real answer and didn’t think simply saying “my imagination” would cut it. I thought about all the things that have inspired me and affected the direction my … Read moreInspiration

Attack on Titan – An HONEST review (contains spoilers)

OK, I feel I need to go on a bit of a rant here. Almost everyone I know goes all dewy-eyed and moist at the mere mention of Attack on Titan (AoT), whereas I get infuriated. I feel you all need to know why so you can tell me how I’m wrong. I’ll start with … Read moreAttack on Titan – An HONEST review (contains spoilers)

Adventures in Publishing – the Danger of Switching Genres

Once upon a time I wrote a little fantasy trilogy called The Ties that Bind (TTtB). This story I penned did quite well.

Designing Jezzet – What Came First, Chicken or Egg?

A few folk have asked me whether I designed the characters to fit the story or the story to fit the characters; in the case of The Heresy Within (THW) it was very much the latter. The world of The Ties that Bind was forming nicely and I had already written a full novel set in … Read moreDesigning Jezzet – What Came First, Chicken or Egg?

Fighting Like a Viking 2 – Stabbed in the Stones

I am now a good few months into my viking training and I have the scars to prove it. I honestly don’t remember the last time I wasn’t covered in a yellow/brown motley. The strangest thing is that I actually like my wounds, I truly feel as though I earn my bruises and I will … Read moreFighting Like a Viking 2 – Stabbed in the Stones

Bland Protagonist Number 1 Saves the Day

So I recently had a discussion argument with a friend of mine over the impact of storytelling in computer games of today. Gone are the days when a game was little more than bouncing a square ball between two paddles and gone are the days when a few lines of text could effectively sum up a … Read moreBland Protagonist Number 1 Saves the Day
