That’s a wrap

So, a quick update from me. I’ve been on furlough from my freelance day job during lockdown. That’s the bad news. The good news is I’ve been able to focus more on my writing. As a result of less interruptions and with nowhere to go, I’ve finished the first draft of my current work inContinue reading “That’s a wrap”

Conventions during lockdown

Because all of the conventions have been cancelled during lockdown, a lot more are going online. I’ve already been involved in one, called CONtagion. A SFF convention and also meeting space on Facebook, which has links to panels, workshops, readings, blog posts and all sorts to keep you busy. I moderated a panel about writingContinue reading “Conventions during lockdown”

5 Cool Comics to Read

Something to keep you occupied during lockdown. Sleeper – This is still one of my favourite series of all time. It’s gritty and sometimes grim, but not overly so but it’s definitely not a comic for children due to the adult content (violence, swearing, sex etc).

Changing media over the last decade

About this time of year people typically post things about what they’ve done over the last year, or even the last decade. I thought about it, but decided not to do that. I could list some of the TV and films I’ve watched but there’s too much and picking out favourites is difficult. Instead I’mContinue reading “Changing media over the last decade”

Flux on Kickstarter

Flux, a SF thriller, is a comic book mini series that I have been working on for years. Most of the time, when writing a novel, you’re doing it on your own. Other people get involved later in the process (agent, editor, copywriter etc), but with comics it’s totally different. It’s a joint effort almostContinue reading “Flux on Kickstarter”

September TV and comics

Super quick update. The new NEW book is ready to go out to publishers. It doesn’t need another edit. YAY! And that’s where it is right now. With them. So I’m just waiting, which is the hardest thing to do, when all you really want to do is refresh your email every 3 seconds. ThankfullyContinue reading “September TV and comics”
