Hello! Yes, it’s been a few weeks since the last brief admin post and now here’s another one. Sorry. Got at least one thing to blog about, but I have to get a train to Leeds in about an hour for reasons you’ll discover shortly, so it’ll have to wait.
But! I have managed to write a guest blog post for someone else entirely (because I secretly hate you etc), so at least there’s something to read. This is on the excellent If These Books Could Talk blog and is me musing about prose serialisation (yes, my pet topic), complete with recent examples and the inevitable bodily fluids joke at the end. It’s a good post, check it out.
Outside the written world, I also did a reading at the lovely Big Green Bookshop (where you can now buy all three Hobson & Choi books in print!) as part of the Novel London series. If you couldn’t make the reading due to only hearing about it now, that’s okay, as Novel London filmed it and the result is now up on YouTube and also embedded below. Note the delicately beautiful product placement of H&C3 in the background.
Thanks to Safeena of Novel London for setting all that up, and if you get the chance to read at or attend a future event, give it a go. It’s fun.
Last of all, I am off to Leeds shortly to both visit my godchild (also called Nick, it’s weird) and attend one day (Saturday) of the Thought Bubble convention, which I hear on Twitter and many podcasts is one of the best comicon type events in the UK. Excited for that. Do say hello if you’ll also be there, I am wandering around by myself so may look scared. I also have a copy or two of The Gathering: Noir anthology featuring my published corporate noir story, so that’s exciting.
That is it! I hope to manage a more meaningful blog post next week. Or at least before the end of November.
