Crash Landing – New Podcast

As you may be aware, maybe not, as well as writing novels and comics, I am also a podcaster. Grouchy Old Geeks I‘ve been podcasting 11 years this July with my co-host Scott Grandison. It started out as Comic Book Outsiders but then morphed into Grouchy Old Geeks (as we both drift closer to middleContinue reading “Crash Landing – New Podcast”

February worklog

I thought I would do a quick post about what I’m up to at the moment on various things. So, book 2, Bloodmage, is completely done and dusted. My publisher, Orbit books, has just sent me the latest version of the cover and I think it looks really good. So that is all set toContinue reading “February worklog”

Interview with me at SFF World

Following on from the review of Battlemage over at SFF World by Mark Chitty, he also did a long interview with me about my d├ębut novel, world building, my influences and all sorts of things. The questions went in some interesting and unexpected directions. Some of them also made me take a step back andContinue reading “Interview with me at SFF World”

My Experience at Nine Worlds 2015

This was the second year I’ve attended the Nine Worlds Geekfest in London. The event is only in its third year so it is still a relatively new event compared to some. Even so I think it is leaps and bounds ahead of others in terms of it being the most inclusive and open eventContinue reading “My Experience at Nine Worlds 2015”

Podcasting Legends

I’m giving that title to someone else, not me, namely Scott Grandison, my partner in crime on our podcast of eight years last week, Comic Book Outsiders. When we started podcasting we had a sign at comic book conventions on our table that said – Ask us about podcasting! Several times an hour, people cameContinue reading “Podcasting Legends”

Nine Worlds 2015

So, we’re still months away from the Nine Worlds Geekfest convention for 2015, which is taking place on 7-9th August in London but I’m writing about it on here for a couple of reasons. I attended the event last year, and it was a remarkable event which was eye-opening and the most inclusive event I’veContinue reading “Nine Worlds 2015”

April bits and pieces

It is almost May and as the year races by I’m desperately trying to hold on to the seat of my pants and get stuff done. The first draft of book three is under way, and I’ve had a couple of months now to get my head back into it, completely ignore the other twoContinue reading “April bits and pieces”

February’s Podcasts

As mentioned last month, the Podcasting network I am involved with has had a face lift and a kick in the pants, and now we are back on track with a regular schedule and more new content. Pete Rogers, my co-host on Bags of Action had some very nice things to say about then newContinue reading “February’s Podcasts”

Podcasting empire

I’ve been podcast for over seven years now and the landscape has changed dramatically in that time. When we started not many people really knew what podcasting was and the number of podcasts and people listening was a fraction of what is today. Coming up on eight years on from when we first started inContinue reading “Podcasting empire”

That’s a wrap

Quick general update. This month has been flying by. It’s been super busy in the day job, and I’ve been stacked up at night with various things. Probably the most exciting news is that the proof of Battlemage is done! I spotted a few things, had a few more fed back to me from theContinue reading “That’s a wrap”
