Well, it’s been an exciting time!
“Query Letters Part 2: What Agents Say They Want” will be up in the next week or so but you’ll have to forgive the delay. I’m working on several projects at the moment and making time to blog here is proving challenging. Last week I was very excited to hear from an agent about a non-fiction proposal I queried about. They want to see the full proposal, sample chapters and writers biography so I’m busy polishing them all up so I can mail them out. I’m not going to say who the agent is, but I’m so happy they want to know more because I can really see the book sitting well with the other authors and books they are representing. Fingers crossed!
PinkRaygun.com and The Guild Season 3
In addition to my ‘writing-writing’, my blogging is also kicking up a notch. I regularly blog as WorldofHiglet over on “the last geek bus home” and many of my recent posts have be about The Guild, an award-winning webseries I’ve been following for the last eighteen months. Created, written and starring Felicia Day, The Guild Season 3 starts on MSN video/Xbox live /Zune on Tuesday 1st September 2009 and I will be reviewing each episode on PinkRaygun.com in a new series of articles. I’ve been a fan of PinkRaygun for a long time and I’m really looking forward to combining writing for them with watching my favourite webseries – it’s a win-win!
And after their massive music-video hit “Do you wanna date my avatar?” I can’t wait to see what surprises this new Season will bring. For one thing – it has Wil Wheaton! And as this stunning artwork from the brilliant artist Jeff Carlisle shows – there be dragons…
“Turning Left at Albuquerque” audiobook podcast surges on
And we are continuing to serialise my novel “Turning Left at Albuquerque” on turningleft.podbean.com. It started as an experiment and originally we were only going to do the first five chapters, but it’s been very well-received and Omnibus 11 (Chapters 51-55) will be published on Monday 31st August. That’s over four hours of excitement, geeky fun and heartbreak so make sure you check it out!
Okay, it’s back to work for me – how are your plans coming along?
