So I’ve been a bit rushed off my feet lately folks, which is why I haven’t been posting much this last week or two. My MA is taking up quite a lot of my time, and I still have a day job and family life, and rewrites and new work AND we’re in the process of moving house and have quite a poorly toddler, so it’s all been a bit mad at the Simpsons.
However, I can promise you that I’m working on a post about children’s horror, and I’ve started work on a post about cover art and how it can make or break a book (you thought it was all about the writing, didn’t you?).
In other news, Mr Claire is (among other things) editor of Diabolique Magazine, which is a pretty awesome journal magazine about horror. They’ve recently gone from an online only into print (you can find them at http://www.horrorunlimited.com) where my lovely husband has his Fresh Blood and Crumpets column (where he talks about a recent late night screening of Nosferatu that we attended in Belfast, complete with live IMPROVISED organ music – was pretty awesome), and you can read The Charm of Evil by the deliciously charming David Rattigan who’s latest column is a thoughtful insight into a film classic ‘Dracula’s Daughter: A Queer Monster Classic Turns 75’
Shameless promotion aside, I’ve been working hard on rewrites (sort of) and have an idea about a zombie novel just itching to be written. It may, I fear, have to wait until after the move.
