Recently, I finally got to see the band I’ve been writing for play live. If their debut gig was anything to go by I am very optimistic about the future. It also gave me a chance to meet the rest of the band and learn of their plans. Regarding the album I have been working on, the bad news is that it won’t be recorded until summer. The good news is that it looks as if I will have three more songs to write. They plan to launch the album in autumn, so we have quite a wait ahead of us.
In the meantime I am beavering away on my next novel. I am probably 40% done. Editing is a lonely, thankless task which I am particularly slow and not particularly meticulous at. I can’t wait to finish this part. Next I shall pass it on to a very good friend of mine who worked on ‘Existence Is Futile’ and ‘The Story of Albert Ross’ with me. Then and only then, after his hyphen-addicted eagle eyes have given the text the once over will I decide what I will do with it.
Thankfully distractions are never hard to come by, and I have had plenty lately. I recently received an awesome review from K.S Marsden, author of ‘The Shadow Rises’. I did something I seldom feel compelled to do and wrote a review of a book entitled ‘The Birdman Cycle’ by Thomas Rose-Masters. Additionally, I have seen the first illustrations for my book of ‘new-age’ fairy tales, and am very impressed. And finally I have been helping a certain Senor Elbuho move into his brand new internest. He still has a few things to unpack, but as soon as he is ready I am sure he will post something on Facebook.
