Apologies for the delay. Real life got in the way again and before I know it I’m two months closer to peace and quiet. I’m still a misery guts and the world remains utterly fucked. Turns out there are more sex offenders in the House of Gollums than what there are in Strangeways. Nothing grips my shit more than learning about men who have used their status to abuse women (and let’s face it, it’s mostly men). Harry Weinstein can also fuck off. I’m all for respecting the rule of law, but it’s clear as day that he’s a wrong ‘un. If I was Prime Minister I’d make it policy to stick all wrong ‘uns on Herpes Island until we find a cure for them. Problem with that is there wouldn’t be many people left to run the country…
On a lighter note my latest novella, Prezident Scumbag!, will be released in the next month or so just in time for Christmas (because I need all your money in my bank account immediately as I can’t afford to keep topping up my prepayment meter this winter). Seriously though; if everyone who despises Trump as much as I do buys it then I’d be richer than the ginger cunt himself. I could afford to buy all his businesses off him, sack him and then turn Trump Towers into a giant hostel for New York’s homeless. I’m sure he’d appreciate that. Speaking of which he’s another untouchable wrong ‘un. Feels like there are wrong ‘uns everywhere at the minute. What is our species becoming? We need to stop behaving like caged animals and start to respect each other.
For those who have been following me over the last year or so, you’ll know that I’ve been bleating on about my second novel Broke. I haven’t touched this manuscript for about a year, but I know it’s definitely going to be released because it’s about halfway there and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. However, I’m pausing on it because I’ve very recently began piecing together another story which is more in tune with where I’m at in the world. It’s called Neilism and it’s by far the most scathing, cynical voice I’ve mustered up and seems like the natural follow up to Spark. Don’t get too excited, though, because it’s not a sequel. Socio-political commentary (or whatever you cool kids call it) is taking a backseat and a more philosophical subtext is emerging. I think it’ll be appreciated by nihilists and misanthropes everywhere.
I’m also working on an anthology with another sixteen authors and poets. It will include a brand new short story by yours truly. For now this is about as much as I can tell you. We’re aiming for a release date early next year and all proceeds will go to charity. We’ll be making a lot of noise so keep your ear to the ground…
That’s all for now. I’ll be back with the Scumbag release very soon.
Peace be with you.
