So session 1 of 12 of my chemo is done, and I’m back at work on something – not quite new, but which I had set aside for a while, awaiting the opportunity to pick it up again. It’s my new LOKI/RUNE book, and I’m actually having a blast with it. The concept is nuts, which is my favourite kind of concept, and because it’s so different to everything I worked on last year, it feels like a bit of a holiday. Subscribe to my newsletter for details and snippets of work-in-progress, or follow my weekly one-minute video diary on YouTube, for a more intimate, day-today glance at What is it Writers Really Do.
And in cautiously optimistic news (or do I mean wildly optimistic news?), I’ve just sold the film and TV rights to my very first novel, THE EVIL SEED. Of course, things like this have happened before without a show ever being made, but it’s nice to know that a book I began forty years ago when I was at university still has the power to make people dream.
And here’s a piece of good news for you. For a whole month before the publication of THE STRAWBERRY THIEF in paperback, the e-book will be available on Kindle for only 99p. Treat yourself. You deserve something nice…
