I lived for a year in Japan, so I have some idea about Japanese culture. If you've looked at anime and manga you'll probably have noticed that there are a lot of characters who look rather western. One has to assume this is a cultural choice.

Writing for the Indian Market

This is an interview with +Rasana Atreya by +Joanna Penn , lots of information here, far too much to summarise, but it should give you food for thought about that market.

On a personal note I've read Rasana's books, they are excellent, and I had the pleasure of giving her feedback before the publishing of 28 Years a Bachelor. Her book Tell A Thousand Lies informed some of the ideas in one my stories.

In this episode, Dave and Simon discuss serialising a story, which involves both true, cliff-hanger serial stories, and just breaking a story into parts. We also discuss sharing rough, first draft work online. Check out the video and audio for more!

PRESENTATIONS ARE PERFORMANCE ART

Today I will mostly be planning a presentation to explain to non-technical people the changes we've made to their badly written website.

This the first slide.

:-) People love my presentations.

This looks excellent - good find.
 
A wonderful new app for the iPad: the first of a series presenting Shakespeare's plays in both text and video format along with a wealth of multimedia resources. It's called "Heuristic Shakespeare" and this first app deals with The Tempest. You can watch the actors speak the lines, in synchrony with the actual text. You can click on any phrase at any time to get an explanation of it, and the video automatically pauses.

As much as anything, it's just wonderful to see great actors like Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi play these parts, even out of costume. McKellen, by the way, is listed as 'Series Editor'.

Very much looking forward to this treatment of Shakespeare's other plays (though my wallet isn't!)

Introduction
By working day I'm a contract web developer. This means I move around from company to company building websites. By night I'm a writer of Fantasy and Science Fiction, currently focussing on Steampunk - though unlike any you may (or may not) have read before. I am also a screenwriter and sometime poet.

MY BOOKS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM

All my steampunk stories are set in the same alternate world where, in 1843, Sir Michael Faraday demonstrated his Principle for the Partial Nullification of the Effects of Gravity. All the stories take place after that. The stories are mostly in three series:

The Maliha Anderson Series (15+)
The Iron Pegasus Series (11+)
The Frozen Beauty Series (13+)
  • Journey into Space, 1874
  • The Faraday Cage Anthology (due out Nov '15)
  • Morning Star Rising (due out Dec '15)
Fantasy

And the pure fantasy Patterner's Path series:

If you just want to hear about new releases join this list.

Or you can sign-up to my newsletter and get the first two Frozen Beauty books free. The newsletter comes out every two weeks and contains interviews with other authors, little tidbits of possible interest plus news about my writing - and no hard sell.
