Holiday Reads

It’s almost time for my summer holiday so I thought I’d do a quick post on what I’m going to be reading while relaxing by the pool. I’m not a fast reader at all, but when on holiday with few distractions, I can get through about four or five books in a week. So IContinue reading “Holiday Reads”

We’ve got one!

I’m delighted to say that I now have an agent. I am represented by Juliet Mushens of The Agency Group. That’s the short version for those who want to skip to the end. It’s taken a long, long time to get here. I’m still trying to process it and also work out how long, butContinue reading “We’ve got one!”

My Workspace

This post, and other related posts that will probably be forthcoming by Laura Lam, Jennifer Williams, and by Lou Morgan was inspired by a tweet Laura made about finally getting herself a shiny new desk. I’m always curious to see other people’s creative workspace and what they surround themselves with to help them write orContinue reading “My Workspace”

Eastercon Report

Eastercon is done for another year. This was my second year at the event and despite only being there for only a couple of days due to family commitments, I had an excellent time and met some wonderful people. So I attended on Friday and Saturday, took part in one comics related panel on FridayContinue reading “Eastercon Report”

YA Comic Books

This idea has been somewhere in the back of my mind for a while, but it came together last week when Marvel Comics announced that they are launching a series of YA novels, based on their superhero characters. The first two announced are She-Hulk and Rogue, written by Marta Acosta and Christine Woodward and theyContinue reading “YA Comic Books”

One Man Army

When I was growing up it seemed to me that there weren’t that many interesting books to read. Looking back, I know I was wrong. Obviously. However, at the time, I read fairly ¬† the fantasy genre and I went through pretty much everything I could find. Now I now read across several genres andContinue reading “One Man Army”

Books That Changed My Life – Part 2

This has slightly morphed into authors that changed my life more than particular books, but it’s still appropriate as I do mention specific titles by each of the authors. Legend by David Gemmell – Gemmell was an enormous influence on me growing up, and together with Eddings and Brooks, he is partially responsible for myContinue reading “Books That Changed My Life – Part 2”

Books That Changed My Life – Part 1

The title and idea of this is…borrowed…from Den Patrick and the other good people at Blackwell’s in Charing Cross. They have written about 5 books that changed their life so go here and read them. So far I’m managed to whittle my list down to 8 books. I’ve probably missed off a couple so I’llContinue reading “Books That Changed My Life – Part 1”

Projects Update

So as it’s three weeks until the New York Comic Con (11-14th October) and there is some related comic news of a sort, I thought it was time for a bit of an all round projects update. Apologies for being vague in some places, but this is because of contracts and NDA’s, not me beingContinue reading “Projects Update”

Rereading

When I was very young there didn’t seem to be many novels being published in the genres I was most interested in; science fiction and fantasy. I read all of the classics and new books that I could find and then sat on my hands and waited months for another book to arrive¬†by one ofContinue reading “Rereading”
