You always here me talking about how fast time is flying – and it just did it again!
It seems like just yesterday I was getting ready for the Halloween event at Waterstones, and now it is December. We’ve had a load of snow and Christmas is on the way!!!
So, about the Halloween event, I wish you’d all been there. It was brilliant! We call came out in costume – even the staff. I was dressed as a giant bat, and the knights out front caused a stir! They looked like they were pillaging the shopping centre.
I did meet a lot of folks and made a lot of new friends. This is the best part of being a writer, getting to meet the readers! It’s pure magic.
But now that is gone and Christmas is coming. I hope Santa brings me what I’ve asked for… but I can’t tell you, that would be cheating! I also hope he brings each of you want you really want as well.
Christmas really is my favourite time of year. I’m about to get out the decorations and make my house look like a Santa’s Grotto threw-up in it. I do go a bit crazy and smother the place in tinsel and lights. But hey, that’s what they are there for.
I’m also about to start a bit of a project – right in the middle of Christmas. I am going to be busy trying to make a rather large Pegasus out of papier-mâché. Why? I hear you asking? Because in February, I am going to be at the SFX Weekender in Camber Sands Holiday Park in East Sussex. It starts on February 4, 2011. And my latest book, “Pegasus and the Flame” is going to be available there. So I’d like to have a big Pegasus for the display. I’ve never tried making something like this, so it will be a bit of an adventure. Once I get started, I’ll take some pictures along the way for you to laugh at. I am going to make such a mess!!!!!
The SFX Weekender is a big Science Fiction/Fantasy convention. There are going to be loads of celebrities and writers there. Please take a moment and look it up on the Internet. http://www.sfxweekender.com Maybe you can join me there. It promises to be a blast! Just look for the giant papier-mâché Pegasus and you’ll find me.
Here now are some pictures from the Halloween Waterstones event. I hope you like them.
Next week, – I start the giant Pegasus – so please wish me luck!!!!!
