I had plans. I really did. I was going to start blogging once a week again. I was going to brag, rant and generally pontificate about stuff I’d written and stuff other people had written and stuff that had nothing to do with writing at all. But an attack of real life (well, mainly the day job) intervened and fripperies such as blogs got put on one side.
Things are still proceeding.
First of all, HAVE YOU TAKEN A LOOK AT WHAT I’VE DONE TO THIS WEBSITE? Go on, tell me you’re impressed. Actually, I’d been thinking for a while it was due for a makeover and someone I was building a website for pointed me at an example and said “Actually, I’d really like something like this”. I like what she showed me so much I ended up using the theme in question for mine as well as hers.
(OK, maybe that was a bit of a frippery. But I reserve the right to be inconsistent.)
More importantly, things are proceeding with DIP FLASH. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s a quick PREVIOUSLY ON WWW.JONATHANPINNOCK.COM.) This morning I finished going through the proofs, and I have to say I’m still entirely proud of it. It’s definitely an advance on DOT DASH, and I think some of the stories in it are better than anything else I’ve done. We’re also getting close to having a cover. My publishers liked the crude mock-up I put together to show the kind of thing I had in mind, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what their graphic designer has done with it.
So when’s it coming out?
Glad you asked.
Looks like some time in March, but I’ll let you know as soon as I have a definite date. In the meantime, expect stuff like cover reveals, pre-order details and what not.
