Well, after 18 months of planning, preparations and set backs, I’ve finally taken over a small IT company in Hexham (Northern Binary Systems – also known as The Computer Shop).  It’s got a great reputation locally and has wonderful staff who have been really supportive throughout the transitional period.


Owning my own business is a huge step and a big challenge – especially when I have staff that rely on my company for their livelihoods.  I have a responsibility to them.  But, once I settle in and find my natural routine, this will give me more flexibility for my writing and promotional activities that my previous employment couldn’t offer.


Once I get settled in, I can get back to The Killing Moon.  I want to have the first draft finished within three months.


So, wish me luck!
