#uninstallfirefox

I'm stopping using Firefox (and other Mozilla programs like Seamonkey and Thunderbird) over this whole Brendan Eich scuffle, and you should consider it too.

The Pyrrianaut Published

I've now published The Pyrrianaut as a freebie on Smashwords. I was going to put it on Amazon as well, but Amazon doesn't accept "Free" ebooks, so you'll just have to download it from Smashwords even if you use a Kindle. There's a short description of the short story after the break if you're interested.

Writing Update

I finished up a new short story on Wednesday night, so I'm going to let it sit for a week or two and then re-edit it. In the mean-time I'll continue work on editing The Sword and The Hawk, and hopefully get started on a separate novella I'm planning.

Writing Update

Just a quick update on the status of my writing. The first few chapters of The Sword and The Hawk are with my mum proofreader, and I'm a fair chunk of the way through an unrelated Sci-Fi short story, which is probably going to end up being around 3,000-5,000 words. I'm hoping to pick up the pace on my writing, but still, I'm getting things done, even if more slowly than I'd like.

My New Vegetable Garden

Continuing my streak of not posting the first chapters of the Sword and the Hawk I've planted a vegetable garden, in an old garden bed which was full of plants I didn't actually like, and I decided to share some pictures of it (click for bigger):
