What The Author Did Next
NB. The photos: I was on the South Bank last night after seeing Ralph Fiennes in ‘Antony and Cleopatra’ and took these shots, sitting by the Thames with friends and beers. Despite the fact that London now looks like Singapore, you can still find a pub with an upturned flowerpot for an ashtray.
Apparently the giant blocks of ice were an artistic statement about global warming, hopefully not having been hacked off a glacier.
I had a review the other day that started ‘I always forget how much I like this writer’, which [a] cheered me up and [b] reminded me to encourage people not to forget, so if I may directly your attention to the little menu on the right-hand side of your page, you’ll find several categories, some of which you may not have noticed before, as indeed I appeared not to have done. When we lasted updated the site in 2016 capacity was made to include extracts from every book currently available. That plan flew out the window when I started the last Bryant & May project, which turned out to be bigger than expected.
Lately though, I’ve started adding extracts from the novels to give potential readers a flavour of what they’re in for, which may be a good or bad thing. Hopefully I’ll soon have managed to upload sections on everything. In the meantime you’ll find quite a lot of stuff there. Hopefully the designer and I will get together soon and address other concerns with the site. We are in the pre-Christmas accordion when everything gets squeezed, so most of the things I say I’ll do this week will happen in January.
Have a peruse; what I’m doing next is taking a short trip to – well, it’ll need more explanation than a single line, and I hope to get to that subject on Saturday.
