Day Off

December 5th, 2007 • Posted in News |

Sometimes even a writer needs a day off …

Today I drove down to Cardiff to be interviewed by Phil Rickman, for his radio show Phil the Shelf that goes out on Radio Wales. I’ve known Phil for quite a few years – we keep in touch via email – and it was fun chatting to him again. Main thrust of his interview was how my fantasy novels can go into multiple printings in the USA, win the British Fantasy Award, and still not find a UK publisher. No easy answer was discovered. Maybe one day.

When I left the BBC Wales offices, I decided to pay a visit to my ex-workplace to catch up with some of the people there. Weird experience. I was there for a couple of hours and had good chats with a lot of old friends, but it definitely isn’t the place I used to work anymore. I left with the very definite feeling of things having moved on, in my life as well as theirs, and that’s a gooo thing. I worked there for …. hell, too long to tell you. And when I was asked if I had any regrets about leaving … Nope. None.

A bit of Christmas shopping, back home for a splendid roasted pork chop with roasted veg courtesy of my missus, and tonight we’re watching the final two episodes of Battlestar Galactica Season 3. I have an idea of what may happen … I’ll let you know if I was right.
