Back to Life, Back to Normality -- Reading, Watching

Well, it had to happen eventually. The launch of The Call came and went. There I was, all full of myself, trips to New York and Blog Tours and famous authors returning my tweets...

And then, it just ends. Why, this morning, I had to queue up for coffee -- me! Like a normal person. The humiliations have only continued since then, I can tell you. I'm expected to pay my own tab and nobody has washed socks in this house for days and days.

So, I guess, I'd better return to my usual blog posts.


I always like collecting books by people I've met and I'm building up quite a stack of them! Probably time to play jenga with it.

First up was Jo Zebedees, engaging and swiftly-moving Inish Carraig. It's great fun and why wouldn't it be, with alien invasions and a mysterious new prison for those who get on the wrong side of our new masters? Poor John Dray! He gets a rather closer look at what's going on inside than anyone would want... You can find it here.

I've also started the BwB's very own J.R. Johansson's Cut Me Free. I'm really only at the start of it, but even here, to tell you anything of the plot would be to shower you with spoilers. But basically, a girl fleeing horrific abuse, needs to overcome her own PTSD in order to save somebody else. So far, it's very intriguing.


I know I saw something incredible recently, but I'm too shell-shocked by my return to normality to say what it is. What I do know, is that Narcos has returned to Netflix and I welcome it with great joy. Only two episodes in, it still makes for great TV. Let's see what happens next!


Well, I will give you one more piece of news related to The Call. In case you didn't already see it, I have an interview up today on Sci-Fi Bulletin. If you want the answer to such questions as why I wrote the book in the present tense, well, here you go!
