All the best...

If it wasn't for Matt Hilton and Col Bury's TK'n'C I wouldn't be as enthusiastic about writing as I am today.

Far from the tea-sipping, jam sponge-munching grannies worshipping the local vicar I was scared the 'writing community' was, I have found reason, treason, misreason and unbelievable honesty in all the writers I have met since going heavy at the beginning of this year.

They are:
  • Mat Hilton, best selling author of Dead Men's Dust and Judgement & Wrath Website/blog
  • Col Bury, co-editor of TK'n'C, destined for great things in noir TK'n'C | Website/blog
  • Lee Hughes, by the Goddess, you need to read his stuff. It twists with dark excitement. TK'n'C | Website/blog
  • David Barber, dark, clever and horridly humerous. TK'n'C | Website/blog
  • A.J. Humpage - AJ's writing is terrifyingly piercing. I defy your heart not to scream in terror or emotion. TK'n'C
  • Pixie J. King.Watch this girl. She may be young but she never fails to stun with her insights. TK'n'C | Website/blog
The list could go on. and it will...

If you want to see any of my own stuff on TK'n'C, click here. Apparently it's, erm... rather shocking. I'm so glad.


  1. Awww! Thanks Lily! That's made my day seeing me up there. Just wish I wasn't feeling so down I could get my story up there...

  2. You'll get there again soon PJ. You're getting stunningly better by the day, which is why I listed you.

    Haven't had any successes meself lately, so just getting on with the practise.

  3. Thanks Lily, you picked the bestest time ever to say something nice! lol

  4. Hi Lil,
    It's lovely of you to make this list and I'm honoured to be on it and in such great company. If I did one, you'd surely be on mine. So the feeling's mutual, mate. And it means a lot that TKnC has helped you so much. It's done exactly the same for me, too. And I wonder where I'd be without it.
