The Blue Bricks
Although I have an anthology coming out this Easter - I have been busy writing my next big novel release, The Blue Bricks Part One, for some time. This will be the first book in a trilogy, and when it is released it will have a subtitle, but I’ve just not got as far as thinking of that yet. However, I have got as far as writing about 60 pages or so (I write everything by hand so its a...

Sickness in the Night
It’s dark. I am too sick to write. So I can’t get it out of me. So it stays inside me. And rots. And it’s too much. And I know its too much. And I know I can’t live with it. And I know it will overwhelm me.
The first thing I ever uploaded to tumblr...
While I remain ill/have the week to recover, I thought I’d post up the first piece of writing I ever put on here, over a year ago now: The Mirror of a Million Fragments For me, there was always an obscure magic in symmetry. The enchantment, however vague, lies not in the paper reflections of shapes, or the dual vanities of polished glass – even the deep maths of angles and proportion are...

As I mentioned in my list of 2012 plans - I am going to be launching something called Project Hamlet very soon, this month, in fact. Its not open quite yet, as it will have its own tumblr and various other things before its operational, but now seems a good enough time to announce what its all about. In short, Project Hamlet is my attempt at a worldwide experiment in drama, as everyone submits a...
Short Film News...
So, I’ve been talking about making a short film for sometime, and been looking into it for a while. Its actually happening now, or at least the process towards it being produced is underway, which is very exciting news indeed. The film will be called The Wedding at Otranto, and its based on the novel The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole, first published in 1794. For anyone who has read...
