So things are looking up here at Ash Oldfield dot com (hehe pun). I have had a short story accepted for publication in Mix Tape One, a compilation of short stories by Australian authors. I am proud and excited to be a part of this project, to be published by Up & Up Media . The story I submitted is called The Conduit and is a creepy little story that gave me some serious insomnia while I wrote it. I don't want to give too much away because the whole story is one big plot twist. Suffice to say it is filled with darkness and magic. You can view my interview with Up & Up here, I'm not 100% sure yet when the book will be out - possibly over the Australian Summer. I'll be sure to let you all know once I have a release date!
In other news, I have received the final edits back for Fyrebyrne Island. Oh my goodness, it is looking so shiny and beautiful, I cannot believe it. My most amazing editor has just done some brilliant things with my words. The book is well on track for a February release date. You can have a sneaky peak at the latest version of the cover here. There's still some tidy up to do with the design so it will really POP.
