Good News, and A Brief Nap…

Good day everybody!

Now, I’m not sure if anyone is a regular reader or not of my little slice of the internet’s real estate, but those who are may have noticed that I’ve written a couple of ARC (that’s advanced reader copy, people) reviews for indie publisher, Skullgate Media‘s books, namely Loathsome Voyages and Tales From the Year Between Volume 2: Under New Suns.

Well, I won’t be doing an ARC review for the upcoming third volume, which will set around the theme of multi-dimensional pirates. Why you ask…

Because I have passed the selection process to be a contributing author!

This, my friends, is the dream for me, to actually get a slice of fiction, that I wrote, published! In a book! Alongside other writers who are, dare I say, massively talented! I’m already fanboying, and I’ve not typed a word yet! Alongside TFTYB Volume 3, I have also written a short story for another anthology, spearheaded by the wonderful Chapel Orahamm, though I won’t say too much about that yet, as I don’t want to jump the gun on all the pre-release bits and bobs!

With all of this new writing, however, there must come a price. Between that, my weekly work with the Shart Select boys, and my ongoing support for my old friends at The Well Red Mage (ooh, something mysterious is happening there, look!) something has to give. As a result, my little blog is going to be taking a nap until my Skullgate gig is up, around September time.

Like a big ole bear!

But just because it’s asleep, doesn’t mean it’s dead! I may still drop the odd post here and there, and I’m thinking about giving it a bit of a re-brand too, freshen the old place up a bit, get rid of some of the less interesting pieces, and otherwise dust it all off and apply some Mr Sheen to get it all shiny again!

My support of the excellent Seriously Geeky Sundays writing challenges will continue, I’ll be endeavoring to read everyone’s posts and get them shared on Twitter, and I’m looking forward to joining in with those again on the flip side in September as well, because they’re awesome, and if you run a blog, you should join in with them too!

Anyway, see you all soon! Be good whilst I’m gone, and no fighting!

  1. You’ll be missed each week for SGS but this is an amazing achievement and I can’t wait to read your work when you become a fully-fledged published author! I’m super proud of you and wish you all the best in your writing endeavours over the next few months ❤

  2. Sorry for the delay but congrats on getting this opportunity! I hope it goes well for you. That is awesome being a contributing author. I seriously need to get back into fiction projects and not just writing various blog posts (mostly from my film review blog).

      1. You’re welcome. That’s understandable and I hope the upcoming post ideas are going well. I’m sure they’ll be great with reviews or some posts about writing. For me, I’ve been busy with so many things, saw a few indie movies, reading more, watching some indie BritWres, and doing that Alternate Disney August project you gave me the idea for.

      2. Thanks! Last one I covered was Cendrillon which was released in 1899 by George Melies and it was the first film adaptation of Cinderella. It’ll be great to see you post things again.

      3. Oh wow, that’s a real venerable movie then, don’t think I’ve ever watched one from that far back! Oldest I’ve seen is maybe the original Miracle on 34th Street, which was 40s I think?

      4. Yeah, I would’ve never guessed that either and how a cinema pioneer made it. Melies is the same person who made A Trip to the Moon. You know that one short film with the moon with a rocket in it’s eye? That’s the one. It’s one of the most referenced and parodied scenes even a century after the fact. Miracle on 34th Street came out in 1947, so you’re right over there (yeah, I had to look it up for the release date).

      5. Aaaaah is that the “all the way to the moon!” Thing that always gets parodied? I did wonder! And yesss I wasn’t far off at all, suspected it was post WW2 so happy with that!

      6. That would be the one! So many movies and shows reference that scene. I swear Futurama did something like that where a model rocket is flying and ends up in the eye of a lookalike moon. That’s right and it does make sense with that guess and people would’ve been coming back home or were already home at that point in history.
