Forget busy week, this has been a truly astoundingly busy year.
And because I can never remember the log in codes for my personal blog, it’s been sadly devoid of regular content. That might change. Because as you can tell… I’ve found out what they were!! Sometimes you just need to be in a different location for them to come back to you. Me? It’s the office. Which means… while I type, I really should be hard at work grafting.
I wish you could see me now. I’m surrounded by boxes. We’re just about to hit peak seasonal sales with the website, and wholesale orders are dribbling in regularly which is why the office is awash with cardboard.
For those of you who follow me on Periscope you’ll have seen me shrink wrapping on a near daily basis recently. (I’ve just newly made it on this year I’m @redherringgames on there if you wanted to find me.) Even though I’m the MD of the firm, I’m still the one nominated to do the most boring job in the office because… you guessed it… I’m the best at it. Yeah right. It’s a job no one else likes. Which means muggins here has to do it.
Fortunately I’ve just finished a slew of custom written murders, so have the time to stand there while the machine vooms hot air all around me to my intense boredom.
The most exciting custom game this year has been the murder mystery for the International Agatha Christie Festival – which will get it’s first airing on the 18th September. Details available directly on their website.
However, that’s not the main reason I’ve made it onto the blog at last. Rather I wanted to tell you that I’ve finally finished the first draft of “The baby the Dog and Irene” which has been in development for over a year now and am back into re-editing.
Being me… I’ve sent the first re-edited three chapters off to an agent while I’m working on the rest, just to see what they say. As a member of the International Thriller Writers and the Crime Writers Association, I’m hoping it’ll get more of a look in than the usual unsolicited manuscript… so watch this space.
As well as finishing off a novel, I’ve also made it onto Amazon Create Space and self-published a short mini guide on how to write murder mystery games. Details of that are below.
