It’s not that I haven’t been writing. It’s that I haven’t been writing as often here. This is a problem for me, until I look at where that writing is. I wrote a book! (Holy Crap) The paperback version is now available on most international Amazon markets. You can order it from Barnes & Noble bookstores and nearly any other bookstore too. It’s pretty damn exciting I must say – but trying to keep up with the promotion stuff is hard work. I now understand why people wait for that elusive ‘contract’ and a real publishing house.
I did have time to write a tiny little something about the famine and Rowan Gillespie’s horrifying and beautiful famine sculptures on the banks of the Liffey this week. It was for the good folk at Posy-Filled Pockets and was a fun little tidbit to write. I think the pictures I took of them in Dublin are some of the creepiest things ever and I look forward to seeing them again in a few months.
Speaking of which, I’ll be in the North March 5-13th with 4 nights in Belfast and 4 in Derry. If there’s anything in those areas that you would recommend, please feel free. I have a long list in both cities already, but there’s always room for more. The last week of March is Dublin for Easter Commemorations and in between, who knows? I have an unplanned adventure thus far. If there’s anything I simply MUST do, let me know.
