Apologies for not updating my blog so much recently, although I assure you it’s for a good reason – I’ve been spending a lot of time working a new story which I think will appeal to the three people who liked Time Rep. I’m not going to give anything else away for now, but rest assured I am spending a lot of time writing at the moment and hope to have something to show you soon.
In the meantime, I have a few pieces of housekeeping to take care of. First of all, in the hubbub of getting married and going away on honeymoon and buying a carpet cleaner, I completely neglected to say hello to my new readers in Germany, who have just been blessed (or perhaps that should read ‘inflicted’) with the German translation of Time Rep. The publisher decided to change the title to Invaders because apparently Time Rep doesn’t translate particularly well. I do like the cover though – very space-y and with a nice little space invader in the ‘d’:
Secondly, I heard a great joke the other day which I have to share with you. It concerns Thor 2: The Dark World. Are you ready? Here goes:A: “I hope the Thor franchise does well enough so they eventually make a Thor 5.” B: “Why’s that?” A: “Because then I can go up to the person in the ticket office and say One to see Thor five.”
That’s my new favourite joke at the moment. In case you were wondering, my favourite joke before that one was courtesy of Tim Vine:“I watched three DVDs back to back the other night with my girlfriend. Fortunately I was the one facing the television.”
And finally, a warning: If you’re out and about in the supermarket this Christmas, you may notice that Pringles have released some limited edition flavours. The sweet cinnamon one is alright, but whatever you do, do not try the mint chocolate flavoured ones. Yes, you read that right – there is a Pringles CRISP that tastes of CHOCOLATE. It is wrong on so many levels I’m almost tempted to write to my MP and see if a law can be passed making it illegal to sell them. You have been warned!
I think that’s all for now. I will try and keep this blog updated with new entries as best I can, but if I’m gone a little longer than usual, it will be because I’m working on the new book.
Until next time!
