What I Read in February

Posted on

Further to my last post, I regret to inform you that Project X has – to no-one’s surprise – progressed no further, although I have dug out a couple of other ancient abandoned projects in the hope of actually doing something with them. More on that soon, if I fail to find a way of […]

What I Read in January

Posted on

Well, the reading programme got sort of back on track in January, after a disastrous last two months of 2019. But before we dive into this lot, I’d like to bring your attention to an interview I did with Teika Bellamy of The Book Stewards, where we talk about how I got into writing, how […]

New Trailer and Other Stuff

Posted on

Long time followers may remember that I’m a bit of a fan of book trailers. Yes, I know conventional wisdom is that they’re a waste of time, but I suspect that most of them tend to be ignored because they’re a bit dull. Mine, on the other hand, tend to get ignored because a) they’re […]

What I Read in October (No, Really)

Posted on

Yes, you read that right. October. This post is indeed two and a bit months late, and I really can’t come up with any decent explanation. I can’t even complain that I was busy finishing a novel, because that one was put to bed at the beginning of November. What I have noticed, however, is […]

What I Read in September

Posted on

Well, I briefly had a plan to blog about other stuff, but I’m sure you’ll be pleased to know that I am devoting most of my writing energies to Book 3 in the Mathematical Mysteries series, leaving me very little time for anything else. Which is a shame, because I did actually write half of […]

What I Read in August

Posted on

Before we dive into my August reading, I’ve just realised that I haven’t done the draw for that free copy of Paul Flower’s excellent THE GREAT AMERICAN CHEESE WAR. So I’d better do that first. We had a total of nine entries, mostly via Twitter RTs rather than here, which probably says something, although I […]

Cover #3

Posted on

I might have said this before, but if there’s one thing more exciting than having a single book published, it’s having a series of books published with matching covers. Covers are so important – even when, as I am these days, you’re primarily in the digital market. So I feel particularly fortunate that with Farrago, […]

What I Read in July

Posted on

Well, I hope you’re enjoying this newly revitalised blog, with all the varied content that I’ve been putting up since “What I Read in June.” OK, OK, I know. As it happens, quite a lot has been happening with my own writing recently. I’ve been working on Book Three of the Mathematical Mysteries, which now […]

What I Read in June

Posted on

I’ve been getting lazy about reading lately, what with one thing and another. Up until the year before last, I was regularly reading at least 70 or 80 (sometimes even 90) books a year. But last year it dropped, for no good reason, and the start of this year has also been pretty dismal (although […]
