Writer's Blog

A place where I write about the writing life and writing projects in progress

February 14, 2013

  • Gallifrey 2013 (in the air!)
  • imageHere’s a new thing for the Gem Geek or Rare Bug writer’s blog: I’m writing this in an airplane as it soars at 10,000 feet on its way to Los Angeles, where I’ll be a guest at the Gallifrey One convention in Los Angeles. Yes it’s that time again. It’s so exciting! I’m taking advantage of the wi-fi to get caught up on some blogging.

    I’m doing 4 or 5 panels (I don’t honestly remember!) one of which is on Writing and Editing Doctor Who Books where I’ll be talking with my co-author Robert Smith?, my dear friend (and co-editor of the recent publication Chicks Unravel Time) Deborah Stanish, ATB Publishing guru Arnold T Blumberg (the man who gave us Smith?‘s fabulous Outside-In. It’ll be a lot of fun. We’ll also be doing autographs at a couple of junctures, so pick up a copy of Who is the Doctor if you haven’t and get it signed (or if you have a copy, we’ll sign it too!)

    Gallifrey is an incredible convention and Shaun Lyon puts on something special every year. I can’t wait to land and get there!

    If you see me wandering the halls, feel free to say hi. I’d love to meet you!

  • Brushing off the dust…
  • Good grief!? What on earth happened? 2013? But it was 2012 just a minute ago…

    Hold on, just let me dust off this website…

    Sorry faithful internet hoboes. Basically what happened is this:

    Our deadline for our new book, Who’s 50: The 50 Doctor Who stories you should watch before you die (oh, wait… I didn’t even announce that…) turned out to be tighter than usual owing to co-author travel and the lateness of the commissioning. Consequently, the last two months of 2012 (and much of early 2013) has been spent frantically writing, re-writing, and arguing with Robert in track changes. Pretty much most of my focus went into that (and what was left went into my actual day job, where I’m also quite busy). As a result, this website has been really low on the list of priorities.

    But we’re getting near the end of the writing process and hopefully I’ll have some more time to put into blogging again soon. So stay tuned…
