Where to next?

Yesterday I wrote the final words of my first draft of The Last Days of Earth, and got the editors’ proof paperbacks into production from Amazon Spain. All that remains is to edit, get my cover (the drafts I’ve seen … Continue reading

The Seven Creepies in: The Christmas Crossover Caper | Part 14

Doctor Creepy was, indeed, a classic-model Creepy, from the long blonde hair to the disturbing eyes and grin to the overly colourful shirt underneath his white hospital coat. He introduced himself as Doctor Glomulus Cratch. Creepy declared this the coolest … Continue reading

The Last Alicorn: Live!

It’s here! And in e-book format, here! That is all. It’s been a long night and a long year. And I still have a Christmas Special to write, and apparently a film critique connecting Zardoz and Jingle All The Way into the … Continue reading

The Seven Creepies in: The Christmas Crossover Caper | Part 12

(I finished part two of The Last Days of Earth over the weekend, 97 pages and 45,762 words. Almost 8000 words written over two days, not too shabby.) “Obviously,” I said in an attempt to keep Carla’s evident agitation from infecting … Continue reading

The Seven Creepies in: The Christmas Crossover Caper | Part 11

This was all getting a bit deep and intense, so I served out some more coke and opened a couple of bags of liquorice bullets. “Right,” I said to Carla. “So reality is a figment of our imaginations but since … Continue reading

The Seven Creepies in: The Christmas Crossover Caper | Part 10

Carla had yelled at us about this last time, I recalled, but had never really explained what she meant. She was pretty excitable when she’d gone more than a few hours without blowing something up. Which, to be honest, was … Continue reading

The Seven Creepies in: The Christmas Crossover Caper | Part 8

“Hold on,” Creepy stood up, “we settled the whole Christmas thing. And where’s Carl, anyway?” “Who is Carl?” Winona asked. “I thought that was Carl,” Mister C of 9 pointed at Carla. “No no no,” I said. “Carl is an … Continue reading

The Seven Creepies in: The Christmas Crossover Caper | Part 7

“No you’re not,” the slightly-more-normal female Creepy hissed, and before any of us could do anything she’d launched herself across the room at the towering ghoul. There followed a very tense and crowded few seconds, where Mell took the Drake … Continue reading

The Seven Creepies in: The Christmas Crossover Caper | Part 6

This one was also female, although the distinction was even more meaningless than it had been with Mell. She was, effortlessly, the most disturbing Creepy so far – and considering Mister C of 9, that was really saying something. She … Continue reading

The Seven Creepies in: The Christmas Crossover Caper | Part 5

Mell was not particularly forthcoming about herself, or anything else. I managed to establish almost by accident that ‘Mell’ was short for something but she refused to say what, and that Perky Weather was an asylum, or possibly a prison, … Continue reading
