>Remiss of me not to update the blog for a month, I know, but I’ve always said I find this blogging thing a bit hard. I’m not a natural blogger. Still, I don’t want to stop it since reading comments from you lot now and again is well worth the effort.
So, what’s been happening? Let’s see. The new Deathwatch short is finished and has been approved by Inquisitor Kyme. The story is called Exhumed, and I’m hoping you’ll all like it as much as you seem to have liked Headhunted. Readers who know Headhunted will definitely be at an advantage, but Exhumed ought to be comprehensible for those that don’t (at least, I’m hoping so). Look for it when Fear the Alien is released next year.
It’s on to my new novel now. Much of it is already established in my mind, but I’ve got to get a proper synopsis done before any contracts are signed. I’ve a long chat scheduled with the Kymester on Wednesday and I’m hoping to get the final details hammered out. I’m looking forward to this one. More info when I’m told I can leak something.
In non-BL news, I’m hoping to get a new computer sorted out this month. My e-machines died on me after 6 years of solid service. The Dell I’m using as a substitute is the same age and definitely on its last legs. Time to get a monster graphics machine so I can get back into 3d character design and the like, which I’ve always loved. I’m also looking forward to discovering how PC gaming has evolved over the years that I’ve been exclusively a console-gamer. Yeah… really looking forward to that!
Talking of games, I’ve got to recommend Square-Enix/Pop-Cap’s new collaboration. It’s called Gyromancer, and you can get it on PC or Xbox360 for about $15 (don’t know how much in British pounds). It’s absolutely awesome – a combination of Pop-Cap’s addictive Bejeweled Twist gameplay and Square-Enix’s beautiful fantasy art, great music and high production values. It really has me hooked right now.
I’ve also recently developed an interest in the CCG (collectible card game) Magic: The Gathering. I watched some of the world championships live on the web and couldn’t understand a bit of what was happening (world class players are really serious about this stuff), but the basic game is loads of fun, and I managed to pick up a starter set for only about $4!.
Anyway, that’s all for now, except to say that there’s still just a little time left to get your questions in for the Rynn’s World video interview. So, if any of you have something else to ask, get in touch with me via the Contact page and let me know. The questions are mounting up now, though, I must admit, so I won’t be able to answer all of them.
