Writing for Starburst Magazine

To date I’ve written 6 editions of my Digital Jazz column for Starburst Magazine, I’m hoping to collate them all into an ebook next year. It’s been a great opportunity and I enjoy crafting the words every month, I know it has helped me improve as a writer. The editorial team running the digital relaunch of Starburst have really got the formula right and in the New Year I think we’ll all see some really exciting developments. In the meantime please take a look, the focus is horror, science fiction and fantasy genres and it’s all tied together with a digital theme, so Twitter, Facebook, You Tube, eBooks, you get the idea. Enjoy.
