It makes Percy Jackson look very tame! I'm hoping for something of that look for the cover of my book, set in 1962.

Gerry Fenge

That's interesting, Secret One. Will there be infernal elements to your book? Or do you just mean you want an early sixties look as regards illustration?

Imran Siddiq

I always wanted to write a book about the trials and true nature of hell.
Good on you Gerry.

Gerry Fenge

What interesting posts people put up! How would you imagine such a book, Imran?

Anne Rice had a go at it, way back when, with her vampire Lestat being taken through heaven and hell... was a long winded, dreary book though, about as far from a comic as possible, attention span wise!

Just thought I'd pop by and say Hi to you all and to Gerry, and give a subtle reminder that MY BOOK IS LAUNCHING ON FRIDAY!!

WAAAAAAA!!!! I've been up till 5am every night this week, trying to tell people about it. But they don't care, so I thought I'd tell some people that do! Hence I am embarking on another Epic Word Clouder Blog Crawl. Will it work? Frankly, I'm too tired to guess! But it keeps my fingers busy, and my mind - otherwise I'd be eating the wallpaper by now...

Anyhoo, I've put a sample of the book up on my blog:

And if you want to get in touch, to wish me good luck or - gasp - buy a copy of my book, well, who am I to stop ya? You know where I am :0)
(In front of my friggin computer actually, same place I've been for the last 60 hours or so...)

Love ya!

Very interesting, Tony (and of course I'll buy a copy of your book).

I imagine the title of the story you mention is 'The Vampire Lestat'- 600 pages (eek!) according to AmazonUK and not 'long winded and dreary' in the opinion of the New York Times reviewer ('Dizzying narrative flights ... as brilliant as the first [in the series]; it is funnier, wilder and more disturbing')

Who should I trust, though? Hmm, maybe you. I'll buy your book instead!
