Oz Comic-Con Melbourne 2017 Interviews part 2

This year I attended Oz Comic-Con with the view to getting more interviews. It took me three weeks to think of a question. It turned out to be suitable for both authors and artists alike so that’s what happened. I’m always amazed at how hearable the interviews are despite me using really basic equipment. Yes, […]

Oz Comic-Con 2017 – Melbourne

There was a change this year and I haven’t managed to put my finger on it. It wasn’t the cosplay, that was as amazing as ever but I took fewer photos. It may have been the selling type people, there did seem to be a few different items this year. There were more authory type […]

Around the Traps

I figured it’s been a while since I’ve looked at the book world like this so I’ve found some interesting articles for you. Rick Riordan Imprint Acquires First Three Titles I missed the news about a new imprint from Disney-Hyperion. Rick Riordan writes Percy Jackson but is now going to be running Rick Riordan Imprint. It […]

Through my email

I get a lot of email about books, writing and publishing coming into my inbox. It’s always exciting and generally there’s too much to read so I tend to pick and choose depending on the headine. Yes, I’m just like anyone else and need a good headline but I object to clickbait. Today I have the good, the […]

You can either be patient and read through or ignore it and skip to the bottom. The Book! This is a spy/kidnapping type story. Lucy, the eight-year-old daughter of Professor Wragby has been […]

F. Scott Fitzgerald and ebook pricing

What have these two topics got to do with each other? Not much in the general scheme of things but I’m going to talk about both of them anyway. F. Scott Fitzgerald Last night I found an article talking about a new release of Fitzgerald’s work. No, we don’t have a TARDIS, what they’ve done […]

George Orwell

You know what? I came across this article about George Orwell and how his name was really Eric Blair and how they’re building a statue to him outside BBC Headquarters and it made me think. While thinking I checked the catacombs and discovered while I’ve mentioned Orwell 13 times (some of these articles I’ve even […]
