New Q&A Podcast Video

Well, I say “new”, what I mean is, new to the vast majority of my listeners. This was originally recorded in November 2016 and has previously only been available at the $5+ pledge level at my Patreon. It’s a listeners’ Q&A session, much like U&F After Hours, but one you’ve never heard before (unless you’re a $5+ patron of mine). The questions are:

1. When did you start writing; and why?

2. In those early days, how did you approach the novel – I know you started One Among The Sleepless and took the decision to podcast it, what made you decide to do that, and how did you make the word count?

3. How do you approach outlining a plot, what methods do you use?

4. Were there any particular snags you hit with the production/writing of U&F 1, and similarly, how has your workflow changed now?

5. You read a lot of H.P Lovecraft’s stories; Do you plan to write some of your own original horror stories?

Phone Drama

Pauline dropped her phone. It cracked the face. It seemed okay for a while, but then it started repeatedly – and constantly – phoning emergency services, hanging up, then redialling. We couldn’t stop it. If we turned it off, it’d turn itself back on again (Hello Moto!). We couldn’t take the back off to get the battery out because it was practically welded closed. So, only one solution remaining…

More Videos Online at YouTube.

Pardon my slackness in posting the news, but I’ve added a bunch of videos to my YouTube channel lately and I forgot to share the news on my own website – Doh!

The uploads include a live reading of Underwood and Flinch: Night Crossing recorded at the Wexworlds sci-fi and fantasy convention in Ireland in 2016 …

… A peek into my fridge when I was living in England back in 2015 …

… A video of my Underwood and Flinch short story, Incident at a Crossroads

… A video in which I share my inner doubts about the wisdom of sharing the news of the U&F TV series with the world …

… And last but absolutely not least, the whole season of my written-for-TV sitcom, Glitterballs. Long-standing listeners may remember my podcast of the show a few years ago. It’s set in a ballroom dancing venue in England in the 1990s. Due to hard times, the owner has to reluctantly hire the venue out to a live rock music promoter with (hopefully, depending on your sense of humour) plenty of amusing consequences.

All six episodes are available in a dedicated YouTube playlist. And here’s Episode One …

So, I hope there’s something in there for you – preferably all of it 😄 And if you’re interested in my future video content, then do please subscribe to my YouTube channel. That way if I forget to post news of uploads here again, you’ll still know about them anytime you visit YouTube.
