All my many thousands of fans (… and by “many thousands”, I actually mean my girlfriend Julie and my online stalker, Brian), may have been wondering what’s happening with my next novel, Confessions of an Invisible Man. Well wonder no more, because it’s coming out on Valentine’s day. That’s only about two weeks away.
So what is it about? It’s about 350 pages, that’s what! Haha. Well, it’s about a guy who’s going to be invisible for exactly seven days. During this he hopes to win the heart of Lucy Pendleton, the girl at work who treats him like he’s invisible all the time.
I’ve been heavily influenced by H.F.Saint who wrote the brilliant Memoirs of an Invisible Man, and I’ve always thought about doing my own take on the classic story by H.G. Wells.
But what sort of a story is it, I hear you all shouting in a frustrated manner – well, hang on, cos I’m going to tell you. It’s a rom-com with lots of comedy, several twists and turns, a couple of gratuitous sex scenes (OK, that’s not really true), there’s drugs, Elton John and a rug featuring the lovely mug of Rylan Clark-Neal. What more could you ask for? Nothing! And let’s not forget that for my die-hard fans, there’s also a fair smattering of swearwords to add a certain something.
At the moment I’m reading a classic science fiction book called The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis. You might remember David Bowie playing the lead roll in the movie? Anyway, this is a fabulous book – and you can get it from HMV in their 2 for £6 sale! Bargain.
OK, that’s all for today, but watch out for an interview with Sam Eastwood, the brilliant designer of my book cover for Confessions of an Invisible Man. She’s one of my best friends and I might tell you all about her amazing wedding, if you behave yourselves!
Bye for now, you sexy people! 🙂
