Bloggage or not…

Guys, I’m just finishing off the last little bit of the first draft of Nimbus , the third psi-tech novel. (Due October 2017.)

I’m up to my ears in words, living on coffee and chocolate and writing until three in the morning. Please forgive lack of bloggage this week. Have a lovely photo of my dog, Eska, instead and a promise that I’ll write a proper blog post on Tuesday 21st March.

Encouraging comments welcomed – both about the writing and the dog, who is a real sweetheart.

    Eska is gorgeous – typing interupted by throwing treats for my black shepherd boy Jake in an attempt to teach him that NOT barking can be fun … yeah it’s going about as well as you’d expect, he knows perfectly well if I am busy.

      Eska is not a habitual barker, though she will let rip when the local dog-walking society meets in the lane outside our house. She can hear them, but the gate is big and solid, so she can’t see thm.

    Eska is a German Shepherd. They’re very smart dogs. You have to keep them interested.

      Yeah, Aussies are, um, super smart. They have to have jobs. When we got our blue merle, Stella, she chewed everything: wallets, glasses, remotes, and multiple times. That got me started doing Agility training with her – running tunnels, jumps, obstacles. So, both of us had jobs! She also helps around the house, carrying in groceries, taking trash out, delivering things to my wife across the room 🙂

      Gotta have dogs…

      • Jacey Bedford says:

        Our previous dog would chew the skirting boards when he got bored or felt insecure. (He was very smart, but essentially a nut-job.) Eska is not only smart, but laid-back, and very kindly keeps her teeth to herself – though enjoys chewing a nylabone on occasions.

    Beautiful dog, love the eyes.
    I put dogs in all my stories :). I just have to find an agent that loves dogs as much as I do.
    Keep pushing on your writing… life just intrudes.

      I usually manage to put horses in my books – even the science fiction ones. But there are a couple of dogs in the psi-tech series. In Crossways, when Ben rescues his bother from the family farm, just before the Trust’s bad guys try to snatch him as a hostage, he also rescues the two working dogs.
