First Graft


First Graft Podcast

Join me as I write my next novel, The Sound Mirror, share the ups and downs, breakthroughs and frustrations, and my endless procrastination. Come along on my research trips, listen to interviews with other writers and publishing folk. Get tips, share your progress or questions, tell me your challenges, laugh at my stupid false starts. Even better, write along with me! First drafts are hard graft, so we best get writing.
