It’s been almost three months since the release of The Rain Never Came, and what a busy time it’s been (so busy, in fact, that I’ve been somewhat neglectful of this blog).

The Rain Never Came has been attracting some interest, and I’ve received some good feedback so far. As well, a great time was had at the book’s launch in Newstead, Central Victoria, and at my recent talk at Maryborough Library, as part of their Words in Winter Festival. Thanks are due to everyone who came to the launch or the talk, or who has already read The Rain Never Came, or is planning on reading it, or is considering it for review – what a great bunch of people you are!

Here you can find a few bits and pieces that have already been shared online: a review, a spotlight, a promotional extract and a Q&A.

Things have been pretty quiet in other writing news – I’ve taken a temporary hiatus from music reviewing and have slowed down a little on the science fiction criticism, so that I can better focus on The Rain Never Came and my next major project. Which is a story for another day…

However, since the release of The Rain Never Came, I have had a new piece of flash fiction published, as well as a new piece of science fiction criticism: Rising Water appeared on AntipodeanSF, and Too Much Gun appeared in Aurealis #101.
