What’s Up, Doc?

Today I’m heading off to the Ballarat Writers and Illustrators Festival to participate in the Action, Action, Action: Sports Stars to Superheroes panel with Michael Panckridge and Hilary Badger. It’s going to be my first writers’ panel and I’m very much looking forward to it. If you’re heading to the festival hopefully I’ll get the chance to see you there, but if you’re not and you want to see what my giant head looks like in motion and with words coming out of it, then you’re in luck!

Because tomorrow morning on GO! I’ll be making on appearance on Kids’ WB alongside hosts Lauren and Andrew. I’m going to be in two segments; one where we have a quick interview and the second where I get to take part in a superhero quiz against Andrew. If I’m not mistaken the segments will be appearing before Young Justice and Batman: The Brave and the Bold (so somewhere between 9am and 10am). So get your cereal bowl filled and make sure to tune in to watch me squeeze a rubber chicken (that’s not a euphemism).

Yes, that’s a chicken I’m holding.

In other, non-chicken-related news, I thought it was worth mentioning that I delivered the manuscript for Vanguard Prime: Book 3 this week. It was due on Friday but I got a bit antsy and sent it in early on Wednesday. We’re only about to start editing Book 2, so Book 3 is still a long way off (it’s scheduled for release September 2013), but this should give you an idea of just how far in advance things run in the publishing industry!

I’m pretty sure that’s everything I had to catch you guys up on. I need to go finish ironing my shirt and hit the road for Ballarat!

‘Til next time.

  1. just wondering, why don’t you make up your own powers rather than the usual kind? i watched your first part on Kids WB, i’m watching Young Justice now. but you know, make up powers like turning into shadows and making them make creature forms that attack your foes or something (although they’re my favourite powers that i use when i write) so creativity is way cooler when it comes to powers. 🙂 sorry if i’ve put you down or something, didn’t mean to.

    1. I didn’t want the powers for the main team to be too complicated and difficult to explain to the reader. In future books other characters will show up with more unique abilities. Thanks for getting in touch and all the best with the writing!

  2. Thanks! i will certainly do mi best with my stories (if i ever finish any) 🙂 i’m so gonna get those books of yours. you’re going on my ‘Favourite Authors’ list 🙂
