Thank You Very Much for Another 5 Review

I absolutely loved this book. Powerful and poignant, 'Viro' packs a punch. Sad and haunting, 'Viro' is a new take on the zombie genre.The characters are dynamic and interesting, finding

YouTube and the Horror of Seeing Yourself not only in Inglorious Technicolor but also as the World Sees You


Hi Everyone I posted my first YouTube update the other day. It felt horrendous. Awful. I have always hated hearing the sound of my own voice. Combine that with seeing yourself as well and all the horrors I have ever felt about myself fell full upon me from a great height. But it is done now. Out there. Uploaded. Online. Too late. And there will be more. Have a nice day. Original link

The Digital Divide: Publicity, Marketing, Tweeting, Sharing, Commenting, Making Videos, Adding Content and Following

IMG_1397
Hi Everyone Here’s where I am today. Two books published. Publicity and marketing for both of them underway. What does this entail? Spending every spare second when I’m not at work tweeting and sharing and commenting and making videos and adding content and following and then tweeting and sharing and commenting and making more videos and adding more content and following more people. And adding content and following and then tweeting and sharing and commenting and making more videos and adding more content and following more people. And writing. Always writing. It is a lot of work. But someone has got to do it. It might as well be me. Have a great day. Oh! I nearly forgot … Book One in the V...

The Digital Divide: Front Matter, Printers Keys, Colophons, TOCs, and all Manner of other Typesetting Tomfoolery 

viro-one-ebook
Hi Everyone Intoxicated by the fresh scent of newly-printed matter, I have been on a formatting frenzy. Even as we speak I am taking a break from page breaks and section breaks. At the moment, the breaks are winning and I have requested that an extra dropdown tab from the menu be made available to me. Page Break, Section Break. Heart Break. I have learned more about front matter, printers keys, colophons, TOCs and all manner of other typesetting tomfoolery  in the last few days than in a lifetime of writing. It is writing. The mechanics of the process. But it is also something else. It is the clothes we wear. Our shoes. The turn of a collar. The button unbuttoned. The single-breasted suit. H...

VIRO – Paperbacks, EBooks, Mouse Mats, Coffee Mugs and Branded Ballpoint Pens

viro-one-ebook
Hi Everyone VIRO hit the (virtual) bookshelves yesterday. This is Book One in the series and tells the story of Jake. Jake is different but so is the world now. You can buy VIRO in paperback or as an eBook. There is a link embedded in the image. As always, I would delighted to know what you think. Anyway. All this publishing excitement got me thinking about mouse mats, coffee mugs and ballpoint pens. There was a time when everyone used a mouse mat. Does anyone use one any more? What about branded coffee mugs? Given to us by reps and other people on behalf of other people. Along with ballpoint pens. And mouse mats. Branded ballpoint pens. Branded mouse mats. My mats all perished a long time a...

The Digital Divide: The story of a snow storm?


Hi Everyone The snow has arrived. Thick and heavy. Pretty. Pretty irritating. The sky looks like the blank page at the start of a new novel. White space. Does this mean that footprints in the snow are like words? Tire tracks as paragraphs? The story of a snow storm typed onto its own downfall? Stay safe and warm, everyone. Original link

The Digital Divide: Barcodes, Royalties and the Perennial Wonders of Deep Space Exploration

IMG_1052
Hi Everyone It is official. I am now a publisher. Well, I have been previously (sort of) but this time I own the unique numeric commercial book identifiers that will allow me to plough my own furrow. They are mine. And all the botheration that comes with them. I felt it was the right thing to do. The story is a simple one. Years ago, in a separate but still parallel life, I published an academic book on a short cycle of British films from the 1950s and 1960s. The book was a re-calibration of my doctoral thesis.           The British New Wave has floated through space ever since like some kind of unmanned craft. It occasionally makes contact with sentient lifeforms, crash-landing now and agai...

The Digital Divide: Everything Begins Again (Again)

IMG_1052
Hi Everyone I’m writing again. Just a thousand words. It’s very different. Far from what I’m used to writing. Or have ever written before. But it’s fun. The thrill of the new. I have no idea where it will lead. Even if it leads anywhere. It doesn’t have to. I might not let you see it. I might not let anyone. At this stage it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that everything begins again. Again.     Original link

The Digital Distance: That Lovely Place Between Words

IMG_1052
Hello Everyone I haven’t written a word for five days now. Not that I’m counting. Much. I normally write 200 words per day. Or at least try to. Sometimes less. Sometimes more. I’m fine with not writing anything. I learned a long time ago not to be hard on myself when I wasn’t writing. But I do prefer to be writing all the same. When this happens to me I imagine that I am in that lovely place between words. We are all in that place. Sometimes not for long. The time it takes to finish a sentence. Or weld three sentences to form a paragraph. Eight paragraphs to become a chapter. Other times the time it takes for the words to begin again. I have been in that lovely place for five days now. I am ...
