Has it really been that long since I last posted??

  Has it really been that long since I last posted???


  So, what's been happening?

  Well for once, a lot!!

  Tim, the guy in charge, the boss, the head man, the top dog, the big cheese, the head honcho etc. etc., has sent me the first 14 chapters of edits to peruse at my leisure.

  14 chapters may sound a lot but it's not; but what the hell, the editing process has finally started and we're up and running!!!

  Actually, I'm quite excited about it.

  I had a scan through what he's done, changed something and sent him it back.

  I've just read back what I've written and realise how totally mundane that sounds, but dear reader, I can assure you it's not. I've been dreaming of this for years now, literally!! A publisher is going through my work, preparing it for marketing, I mean HOW COOL IS THAT???

  Very, in case you're wondering.

  Anyway, so what else is new?

My story about The Wooden Wolf of Troy is coming on nicely, despite my tight schedule and recent run of parties and shifts. I'll be on that after I've posted this.

  The band I write lyrics for, Gods Will Be Done, are now recording their second CD, The Apex Predator.

  Now, unlike The Book of Blood, their first CD, I don't know all the songs on this CD very well at all.

  Yes yes, I wrote the lyrics and sometimes heard the music before the rest of the band did. However, it was all very basic, worked out on a computer and definitely not how the band performs the songs.

Of all the tracks on the new CD I know four very well indeed, the rest I haven't heard with a singer at all, so it's going to be very, very interesting....

  So, now you know peeps.

  The book won't be out for Christmas, but I'm hoping the rush of Kindles that everyone will be buying for Christmas will boost the ebook market and thus my sales; as it's going to take some time before "Division" comes out in paper.

OK, take it easy.


PS: Haven't Liverpool done well recently??? Great stuff :-)
