Wow, where did the time go? It’s three days to release day and then my latest book baby, The Buddha’s Bone, will spread its wings and fly out into the great, wide world.

Ha ha, indulge me a bit with the cheesiness there. In all honesty, this is a milestone for me. It isn’t my first novel, as my debut came out in 2019. it isn’t even my first book, as I’ve had poetry collections published too. But this book marks the first baby step as my own publisher. Much went into setting up my own business behind the scenes, aside from simply the writing side. The Buddha’s Bone is the finished product of a whole year of rewriting, editing, cutting scenes, learning to typeset, designing a cover, getting registered as a sole trader – and the list goes on. Anyway, soon it’ll be over to you as a reader. I do hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!
