I just heard how a former colleague of mine, Duncan Lay, has had his first book, The Wounded Guardian, published.
I didn't even know he was into the fantasy genre, let alone writing his own book. It's taken him quite a few years to get to this point. Anyone trying to get published may be interested to read about his journey at Secrets of a Fantasy Writer. He now has a three-book deal.
My partner reckons I've got a book or two in me, but I'm yet to be convinced. By Duncan's account, it's a hard slog.
Congratulations, Duncan. Good to know you got more out of all your commuting hours between the Central Coast and Sydney other than an intimate knowledge of CityRail!
