Well, the good news is that I am 75,000 words into the sequel. The bad news is that this has been the case pretty much all year. Let me explain.
Writing is a hobby of mine, and I never expected the success I’ve had with the first book. I have no agent, no publisher, no nothing except a laptop and some free time.
At the beginning of the year my wife and I separated. I became a full-time single dad to our three-year-old but had a business to run at the same time. Sadly that left little free time, as I’m sure you can imagine. So in order to realign my life to the shifting polarities of events I decided to embark on a career change – one that would make me, in the long run, a better father to my son.
I’m training to be a primary school teacher (yep, you read that correctly!). I start a postgraduate teacher training course at Sussex University in less than a week (September 2012), and I’ll be a fully qualified teacher of small people by next summer.
I’ll know more the further into this chapter of my life I progress, but I will be releasing Rising Up: an Autozombiography when I can. Please accept my apologies, but this is one case of real life catching up with fantasy and giving it a hearty kick in the bollocks!
Back to business. I’ll be unleashing various sneak peeks of artwork in the run-up to the release of the sequel to Breaking News: an Autozombiography.
Here’s the front cover artwork!
As I’m not a believer in spoilers, I won’t say anything other than – this is Pigface…
