Excited to be reading a short extract of my novel at the next Novel Nights in Bristol, on the 24th July 2017. This a rare chance to hear how the novel is shaping up. I’m hoping it will catch the imagination.

The main reader is Dan Jeffries who will be talking about his novel and the process he went through in publishing it, which I am sure will appeal to readers and writers alike. I’ve seen him speak in Weston-Super-Mare and he’s well worth listening to.

I’ve had a go at the latest writing challenge by Christopher Fielden and Allen Ashley, the aim is to write (over) descriptively. As ever, this type of contrarian writing is a lot of fund to do.

Mine is number 77!

Why not have a go? When a 100 is reached they will be published in an anthology, with the proceeds going to a good charitable cause.

Nonsensically Challenged, available as ebook and paperback. Christopher Fielden‘s latest collection of contrarian writing challenges collects 100 stories with a nonsense theme. Includes a little piece of flash fiction by me, as well as David Turnbull, and Allen Ashley. All in a good cause too, the Daisy Garland charity.

Richard Cook has been busy over Easter and completed another stomping International Electromatics track! The music this time is dancefloor-friendly EBM. See the link below for Richard’s musical inspirations and synths used.

As for the lyrics this time I was thinking of military science fiction, particularly Joe Haldeman’s Forever War and Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers. What struck me about these stories, beyond the tales of war was how isolated the people were, despite their noble aims and how ultimately despite their heroism they were essentially caught in a dystopian existence.

Really looking forward to reading at Talking Tales 13. This event on 22nd April 2017 at the Left Bank in Stokes Croft, Bristol is a leading storytelling event which it will great to be part of.
