Obviously, everyone has heard by now. The BBC and Amazon are producing a mini series of ‘Good Omens’, based on Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s book of the same name. The cast has been announced; Martin Sheen and David Tennent have taken the roles of, respectively, the slightly fussy angel Aziraphale and the lazy demon Crowley (architect of the M25) who’d rather the world didn’t end. After the first series of the adaptation of ‘American Gods’, I have high hopes for ‘Good Omens’.
The house is still upside down but the office is set up, so reviews and blog posts will resume next week. I will also be back at work on ‘Charley’s War’ and ‘Fire Betrayed’.
I wish I lived here, but I actually live in an early 20th century terrace in Grimsby.
And I don’t get weekends off. Unfortunately, this is a consequence of my brain being weird.
Well, for a start I’m moving sometime in the next two weeks, but other than that I have a busy month for book reviewing and blog tours her at Rosie Writes…
First up, on 4th July there will be a review of Broken Branches by M. Jonathan Lee, from a new publisher called Hideaway Falls. I found them on Twitter, and it should be an interesting read, from the blurb. I got sent some nice bookmarks too.
On 8th and 10th July, we hear from James Sandlin and I review his new book, Outbreak Mutiny. I am reading it now, I’m enjoying it and can’t wait to tell you all about the book. This is a blog tour organised by Books & The Bear.
On 20th July, I will be taking part in the blog tour for Discoucia by Nicholas Lovelock, which will include an extract and author spotlight posts. This is a blog tour organised by Rachel Gilbey of Authoright, on behalf of Clink Street Publishing. I’m waiting for the material for the extract and author spotlight posts, but Rachel is the best and I’m sure I’ll have them before too long. In August I’m taking part in the Clink Street Summer Blogival, where I’ll have two historical novels for you.
On 22nd July there will be an extract from An Almond for a Parrot, by Wray Delaney, a novel I reviewed earlier this month. The publisher, HQ, an imprint of Harper Collins, has organised this book tour. I enjoyed the book and can’t wait to share an extract with you.
In personal book news, Hidden Fire will be featured on Writing Magazine’s Facebook page on 21st July around or before noon. I am quite happy about this.
Just kill me now.
Okay, I’m joking. Well, mostly. Don’t kill me, I’m too busy. Novels to write, books to review, that sort of thing.
It’s too hot!
I’ve spent most of the day hiding in my bedroom but I’ve moved around the house with the sunlight and now I’m downstairs in the sitting room reading and listening to a weird crime podcast called ‘What the Crime!’.
The book is ‘Digging in the Dark’, by Ben W. Johnson. I will be reviewing it soon.
Do you remember that writing prompt experiment I was trying in April? I only managed to get a few prompts written, for various reasons. I tried again this month, and failed miserably, but I have managed to make something decent out of the prompt from 28th May, ‘bloody footprints’.
