- New Writing Blog Entry! I'm now 160,000 words into my new story, and I feel it's time to do a special writing blog about it. At first, I was worried by how long the story was turning out to be – you know me, and what a perennial worry this is for me! However, I felt the length was justified because I was establishing a sci-fi setting – a dystopian, near-future Earth, similar to the world we live in but with some very specific problems. I was also writing a murder/mystery, with all the clues and red herring trails that entails...
- New Ricochet Artwork The fantastic Line126 has made some gorgeous artwork for Ricochet to illustrate this section of Chapter Fifty-Eight:
- UK GLBTQ Fiction Meet! Just to let you know that I’m attending the UK GLBTQ Fiction Meet on 6 – 8th June, 2014 in Bristol.
- Ficstreet Article A little while ago, a fandom friend embarked on a project called Fic Street. Their mission statement is as follows: Coming Soon | Fic Street – “Writers you know, fiction you’ll love!” Fic Street is a FREE original fiction archive and showcase for fandom-friendly authors and readers who are interested in quality commercial/professional fiction and genuine community.
- Facelift at Xanthe.org! My fanfiction website, Xanthe.org, has had a facelift. The entire site has now been Wordpressed, and all the stories are available in e-book formats. You should find the site much easier to navigate, as well as having a snazzy new look!
- New Novel Progress I've been working really hard on a new novel for the past couple of weeks, and it's now nearly 40,000 words long. I think you'll really like this one - it's sci-fi, it's got a great big murder/mystery at the centre, and it's set in London, in the future. There's also a lovely gay love story at its heart.

Tarabeth Q & A
I'm delighted to have completed a Q&A for Tarabeth and the lovely people at Writing Lines and Loving Swats. I also recorded a short extract from Ricochet for them - as they're a spanky group, I chose a very spanky extract *g*. Tarabeth hasput the interview and extract on The Tea Room.
Ricochet is live!

Here is what other people have said about Ricochet:
“I was so excited when I saw the book available on the 3rd….and I immediately bought it for my Kindle (reviewed and 5 star rated over on Amazon!)…this was at 6am…and I then read the first dozen or so chapters in bed..’I’ll get up after the next chapter…or the next…can’t leave yet – one more chapter!’ I’m now on my second read through! (For some chapters it will be a third read….I kept going back to reread favourite bits!). It is just awesome! Seriously, I loved it!” McShepletGirl
“To summarise it up, buy Ricochet, you won’t regret it, esp if you have read her other stories, Xanthe is an excellent writer who will pull you into the book’s world – whether it be an original or a fanfiction story and I look forward to her next story!” Sexycazzy
“It was written so well, just like all your other work and I could not put it down for a minute. Please, please tell me that there will be a second book about the lives of Rick, Matt and all the others. I can’t wait to read it again and again and again.” Greyhound
