No.2 (Part 2)

So, carrying on from my last, jabbering, mind-excretion (No.2 Part 1) - book two, pressure, zombie kittens… Oh, and yes, I am writing blog posts again! Of course it’s only a temporary thing.

Jack Samsonite – The Movie

When my first book came out I didn’t bother with a book trailer, mostly because I didn’t know what the hell I was doing. I have learned a lot since then. I now know that I will never know what the hell I am doing, so I shouldn’t let that stop me. That is why … Continue reading »

No.2 (Part 1)

It’s Official

I mentioned in an earlier post that Jack Samsonite 2 is being published in 2013. This was actually really hard for me to do because it was never actually a signed and sealed deal! I don’t think it’s because I’m a pessimist but more because I’m naturally cautious (‘If it seems too good to be true, then it … Continue reading »
