Kaptain Brawe 2 on Kickstarter

I’ve been a bit remiss.  Because I’ve been trying to post a lot on Twitter, Facebook and other places, I neglected to post anything here. If you don’t already know, I’m involved in a Kickstarter for Kaptain Brawe 2: A Space Travesty.  Please check it out if you haven’t already.  Please consider pledging or at least help spreading the word…

My Talk at LAUNCH Conference

The talks from the LAUNCH Conference a few weeks ago have been posted.  My talk starts at about 5:14:00 but there’s a little problem with the sound in places.  I hope it doesn’t stop people understanding what I’m saying.

Game Writing Podcast

I took part in a game writing podcast recorded at this year’s London Screenwriters’ Festival, which has just been released.  Although I’m obviously biased, Tim, Tony, Rudolf and myself covered a lot of valuable points.  40 minutes of fun and insight.

New Interview

Aaron Hubbard interviewed me for his site, Ask The Writer.  I hope you enjoy it.

Writing from my new phone

I got a new phone a couple of days ago and I’m still getting familiar with it.  It’s a Galaxy S3 and so much bigger than my previous phones.  However, I’m impressed wih how good it is and bow much better it feels than my ipad or my ipod touch.  If I need to replace the ipad at some point…

A note on creating characters

I’m currently reading The Insider’s Guide to Writing for Television by Julian Friedmann and Christopher Walker.  On the whole it’s a very good book and although it has a few small things I didn’t like, the good parts far outweigh the few minor poor parts. I’m in a section on Character Building and the authors mention that Tony Jordan, who…

Denzo Steel

I am writing a new story called Denzo Steel and will be presenting it in comic strip format with episodes every week (all being well).  The style is darker and more serious than my normal comic strip work so I hope that people will enjoy it as much, if not more.  As ever, feedback will be greatly appreciated.
