Happy New Year, everyone. Having finally finished my Restoration novel (you can find 'The King's Favour' on my Xena fanfic page), I'm back to writing and submitting short stories. 2015 ended with a flurry of rejection slips, but hey ho, onwards and upwards - I'm hoping 2016 will bring more success. :)
