Or rather, how to find some fantastic tips on how to increase your writing output.
Sorry it’s been a bit quiet here on the website for a while … but it’s because I’ve been WRITING! And the new book is out THIS SUNDAY! It’s called A HEAD FULL OF KNIVES, and here’s the blurb:
Martin Hogan is being watched, all of the time. He just doesn’t know it yet.
It started a long time ago, too, even before his wife died. Before he started walking every day. Before the walks became an attempt to find a release from the whirlwind that his brain has turned into.
He never walks alone, of course, although his 18 month old son and his faithful dog, Scoffer, aren’t the greatest conversationalists.
Then the walks become longer. Then the other dog starts showing up. The big white one, with the funny looking head. The one that sits and watches Martin and his family as they walk away.
All over the world, the first attacks begin. The Brotherhood of the Raid make their existence known; a leaderless group who randomly and inexplicably assault both strangers and loved ones without explanation.
Martin and the surviving members of his family are about to find that these events are connected. Caught at the centre of the world as it changes beyond recognition, Martin will be faced with a series of impossible choices … but how can an ordinary and broken man figure out the unthinkable? What can he possibly do with a head full of knives?
Luke Smitherd (author of the Amazon bestseller THE STONE MAN and THE BLACK ROOM series) asks you once again to consider what you would do in his latest unusual and original novel. A HEAD FULL OF KNIVES will not only change the way you look at your pets forever, but will force you to decide the fate of the world when it lies in your hands.
Out Sunday May 11th!
Seeing as The Stone Man has been out in paperback (thanks to Amazon Createspace) for a few days now and has actually shifted a few copies, I thought it might be fun if those of you that have made very, VERY sensible choices and bought a copy sent me in a shot of the book; either just the book in an interesting location, yourself holding it, or even just a shot of it sitting snugly in your hand. I’d love to see them, and either way I’ll post all of the ones I get up on here! And BEFORE any wags send in their shots of them wiping their arses with it, I saw the gag coming, okay ..?
Hmm, anyway, maybe I’ll think up some sort of little prize for the best photo? I’ll ponder it …
Anyway, for now, here’s my very basic attempt. Surely you can do better than this, or at least match it? 🙂
Yep! I’ve been interviewed by my good friend, Roland Hulme – raconteur, bon-vivant, dashing social media genius and a cad in every way but the bad ones – for his excellent blog over at militantginger.com. It’s an always interesting look at a very English (in the good sense) Englishman’s perspective on all things American; I recommend it highly. And even more so today, as it features a whole lotta ME! But don’t let that put you off. If you’re interested in m’thoughts and all things self-publishing and the potential career that is hopefully involved therein (uh…that make sense?) then go check it out HERE.
