In That Other Dimension – Published!!

Hi everyone!

Many of you will have seen mention of my novel “In That Other Dimension” over the last couple of years. It was a story which I actually wrote originally on this blog. So WordPress has been extremely important in terms of motivating myself towards this aim.

Anyway, I don’t how many edits later (far too many!!) it’s ready to go, and here it is in all it’s glory 🙂

Amazon UK link

And yes, you can even buy it on the other side of the world! How cool is that?

Anyway,  thanks a lot for all the nice comments and support I’ve had on the way! Hope you enjoy the final product!

My Novel – Getting Closer!

Hi all!

It’s been quite a long time, but then I’ve been quite busy.

Some of you might know, (or even have read it) that I originally wrote a book on my blog. Well since then, I’ve been re-writing and editing, and re-writing and editing, and drawing and editing. Eventually I have a very first actual proof copy which looks and feels like a real book!! That’s because it is, obviously…

Here is the current artwork from my new novel In That Other Dimension. Coming soon, I’ll keep you updated when I have a publishing date!!

Muthafuckin’ Badass Gangsta Prose, yo?

Wassup bitches?!

I’m probably way behind the times but today I discovered a website called www.gizoogle.net. If you type in a web address it basically translates a webpage of your choice into gangsta. Fo’ realz. I’ll probably waste a lot of time on this today.

One of the first things I did was to translate the first chapter of my novel “In That Other Dimension…” Genius.

Particular favourites from the ensuing literary delights included:

“Tall, olive skinned, black afro heavily gelled ta one side. Right back up in yo muthafuckin ass.”

“But dis time he’d left tha iron attached ta two welded together saucepans, inside which he was simulatin tha splittin of tha atom rockin some cheddar n’ a miniature colander.”

“And tha feelin of pimpin’ all up in 497 different parallel ghettos in 3 secondz ta git ta tha destination which he had unwittingly dialled, was clearly just Carlos fallin over.”

“As tha metal split, revealin a huge, black, beady eye, Carlos decided it wasn’t a gangbangin’ thugged-out knockin n’ decided ta cook up a run fo’ dat shit.”

“Put yo muthafuckin choppers up if ya feel this!”

But potentially my favourite thing, is that my blog subtitle says that I’m a “Geek, fo’ realz.”

If you wanna read the gangsta version you can find it here

If you wanna read the real version (first draft is available on this “B-ta-tha-L-O-Gizzay” for free) you can find it here. But “y’all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka!” A quick note to anyone who is reading it at the moment. The whole book is now up to read, but I have been doing major work on it ready for publishing. So this first draft will probably only be up for a month or two longer, as to publish via Createspace you’re not supposed to have it anywhere else so I’ll have to remove it (at least that’s what it sounds like!!) So you’d better finish soon! It’s not too late for some much welcomed feedback if there’s particular bits you like or don’t like or want to know more about in the final draft! “I aint talkin’ bout chicken n’ gravy biatch”

Anywayz, have yo’self some bangin weekend shenanigans fo’ real, innit blud.

Travelling Thailand!

Hey all,

Just a quick blog update for you all really. I recently did some slightly different writing for a change based on my travels of Thailand a couple of years ago. Yes, that means it is sensible! This has kindly been published on http://www.bucketlistpublications.com/2012/02/15/travelling-thailand/ so please go and take a look!!

Here’s one of my pics (Koh Phi Phi) to give you a taster – I will post the whole piece on here at some point 🙂

The next section of my novel-zine “In That Other Dimension” should be up in the next few days. For anyone that thought it wasn’t already silly enough, you’ve got a real treat in store over the next couple of chapters!!!

Six Sentence Sunday

Well here’s something new to me that I thought I’d join in with:

http://www.sixsunday.com/

Anyway, my Six are the opening to my humorous fantasy book “In That Other Dimension” which is available to read here on my blog. If you enjoy them, have a read of the real thing! I’ll be posting the rest of the book as I write it.

“It is a little known fact that every red telephone box in England contains a portal to a parallel dimension. It is activated by an amazing technology which our fantastic telecoms engineers have stumbled upon without ever actually realizing.

It is equally little known that this portal is activated simply by the phone number dialled in that box.

Had Carlos Ernesto Amadeus Von Schnaart had even an inkling of this then he may never have used the phone box in the first place. This presence of mind however was unlikely as he was completely and utterly battered. In fact his alcohol-induced state was the only reason he got into the phone box in the first place.”

Anyway hope that has given you a taster and you’ll be wanting more 🙂

Let me know what you think!

Want Something to Read?

Well it’s your lucky day!

Hello again by the way. Post number two is to advise you all that building these page thingys isn’t quite so hard as I thought (although any tips would be appreciated to make it easier for you to read my stuff!)

The more exciting bit of news however, is that I’ve posted some of my novel-in-progress / novel-zone / thing for you to read! I should probably write a synopsis at some point really, although can it be done before its written?

Anyway, briefly. Its a humourous fantasy novel which follows the amiable rogue, Carlos, on his interesting journey between parallel dimensions. A journey which is not exactly on purpose, yet leads him in to some unique surroundings and worlds.

I’ve uploaded the first three chapters (they’re very very short! It just seems right here) which introduces Carlos and the mess he’s got himself into.  I won’t say any more. Give it a read!

As I’ve previously said – it won’t end here. My intention is to write the whole novel and post it as I go along! I’m hoping around three new chapters per month.

Feedback appreciated!

Read Chapter 1 of “In That Other Dimension” here!!

(Should I start that? It’ll be very difficult to end it…)
