Back from the Beeb

Had a great meeting with the BBC - everything crossed that my script "Tell Tale" gets through to the next stage.
Meanwhile...Maxwell 2 is very close to completion and I am in talks with an old friend, underground comic book artist John Gallagher, to do the cover. Results will be posted as soon as they are ready!

Nearing the end of the line...

Beneath the distant mountain peaks spread a vast encampment. Tents, campfires, horses and thousands and thousands of people spread across the plane. Daisy had seen encampments like this one before. This was a living army camp, with soldiers, wives, children, peddlers, teachers and doctors all living under the falling snow. As the train slowed Daisy saw soldiers scrambling up towards the carriage. Orders were shouted and men in flying black capes raced horses ahead of the train.

Super Bookmarks!

The wonderfully talented Phil Gibson, cover artist for Super Maxwell and the Last Heroes has produced a new Super Maxwell bookmark, featuring one of my favourite characters - Byron Brian. The two-headed parrot will return in Super Maxwell and the Burning Boys, as General Brian Byron!
