The Tim Burton Campaign Starts Here

Posted on

I finished my last post with “see you in 2012”, but there’s one last thing I’d like to squeeze in before 2011 goes out… A week or so ago I tweeted that someone had found their way to the Mrs Darcy web site using the search term “darcy versus the aliens film”, which resulted in […]

Goals

So, 2011 then…

Posted on

Normally today would be the day when I do my reflective post about the past year. However, given what a bloody amazing year it’s been, there’s a danger that it could all turn out a bit smug. So I’ll just confirm that it has indeed been absolutely bloody amazing, and I hope yours has been […]

Every Day Poets Again and Other Stuff

Posted on

I’ve been subbing a few odd things here and there in between whatever it is I’m doing right now and yesterday I heard that one of them, a poem called “Perspective”, had been accepted by Every Day Poets. Unlike pretty much everything else I’ve had published by EDP, this one is quite serious – sad […]

A Couple More Reviews

Posted on

I was really pleased to see yesterday that Our Book Reviews had given Mrs Darcy an enthusiastic thumbs up. Five stars and this: Mrs Darcy versus the Aliens is filled to the brim with my sort of humour – lots of in-jokes and obscure TV quotes that I needed to share with anyone who’d listen. […]
