Write something in your blog again. Well all right.

The blog has suffered recently, there's no two ways about it. Partly this is because I've been writing books - slowly - but mainly I've been playing Skyrim. You'll be thrilled to know that my mighty warrior is now capable of beating every enemy encountered, including some very fierce dragons. As a means of avoiding reality, Skyrim is really excellent. So good in fact that I haven't even got round to playing Final Fantasy XIII-2 yet, and I'm really keen to play that.

My only other activity of note has been reading all five issues of Star Magazine - Foxy Entertainment for 1973. This publication being more proof - as if any were needed - of the stupendous greatness of the 70s. It ran for only five issues before being cancelled due to its unbridled enthusiasm for the Hollywood teenage groupie scene. Apparently this didn't go down well with everyone.

Star manages to use the word Foxy four times on the cover, topping it off with Superfox. It's quality journalism. There are interviews with Marc Bolan. And adverts for portable handbag-sized 45rpm record players. So I have been reading this quite enthusiastically, in between long sessions at my playstation.

All five issues of Star Magazine are online at http://www.star1973.com/

And talking of Hollywood, progress continues to be made with the Lonely Werewolf Girl film option. Slow progress, but things are still moving.

  2. I'm kinda excited about the whole LWG movie idea. LWG happens to be my favorite book read of all time, and I've read quite a few fantasy series.

    Really looking forward to a third book if you are making it into a trilogy!

  3. I think your books would make for AWESOME films...and timely considering the fairytale/vampire rage right now. I think they would really stand out and do very well at the box office.

  4. I can really see your Kalix books as movies, and see them doing quite well at the box office. I think it would be awesome for you and also boost your book sales. I love the Lonely Werewolf Girl!!! :)

  6. I think Lonely werewolf girl would make for an amazing movie. I'm a big fan of your books especially The good fairies of New York...it cracks me up and never fails to cheer me up.

  7. Thanks everyone for your film support. It is a really long, difficult process, and whether Lonely Werewolf Girl will ever make it to a screen, I don't know. It would be great if it happened, and it seems possible.
