Your indie book shout outs

First things first – you lot are bloody lovely you are. It’s true. Since my last post where I shared the news about venturing into the lands of self publishing, I’ve had so many kind messages offering support, advice and general all round fuzziness it nearly made me emoticon everywhere. It means a lot to…

Stepping into self-publishing

This is it, guys. This is me, checking out my New Year’s resolution-y things and getting some plans in place. And it’s time to get some wordy goodness out there in bookish form, which you’ll hopefully enjoy and share and generally have a damn good time with. It’s scary, stepping into self-publishing.

Grind Spark – the complete earworm sessions

It’s time to close the book on Grind Spark. Not completely, there’s still tweaks and edits afoot. But times are a-changing and new WIPs (Work in Progress, Walrus in Pants, Wet Insidious Pulses… whatever takes your fancy) with whole new earworms are calling.

A song that spreads out…

What do you do when you’ve finished writing something like a novel, eh? Well, I mean, after the obvious bit where you get pissed on whisky and give your mum a lap dance. … what… … is that just me…? Well, whatever, we’ve all got our own parties to get on down to. (I saw…

Grind Spark Earworm #14 – Mogwai

HAPPY SUNDAY, GUYS! HAPPY FIRST DAY OF JUNE! Wha’? IT’S THE FIRST DAY OF JUNE, MAN! Are you smoking that shit you bought off the purple crocodile living at the bottom of the garden again?

Grind Spark Earworm #13 – Moloko

Woah, it’s only come around to that Grind Spark playlist time again. There’s been less posts recently due to my head being buried in a couple of new WIPs and running through final edits on Grind Spark – don’t worry though, there’s wordage being stored up to shortly be spewed into bloggity format for your…

Grind Spark Earworm #12 – DJ Snake and Lil Jon

Is it Grind Spark playlist time again? I think it might just be. Last time we went for rage and dancing with The Prodigy. This week we’re doing something different. This week we’ve got a BRAND SPANKING NEW addition to the playlist. Not spanking like paddles and chains and red lights. More spanking like Julia…
