BBC and all that

M y buddy Mike; always an interesting read.


Still had time for an occasional walk! Still had time for an occasional walk!

Last week was another busy one. Plenty of writing and planning, but then I had to go up to London to discuss the next books.

I am currently on a two book contract. The first of the pair is written and submitted: it’s the last of the Vintener Trilogy, and deals with events ten years after Crécy. I really like it. There is a pretty high body count, but most folks are happy with that. The questions was, though, what my editor and I should look at next. Some people have been asking me to write about Agincourt, which is an appealing idea, but for that I’d have to invent a bunch of new characters and work through a different period, while many readers would expect something to follow on from the other books. They are all in the Hundred Years War, after all.

    This is “à propos de rien” as well, shows I read the blog, mind. From East Lothian, I would go up to Edinburgh and down to London. If you look at a map, London’s at the bottom so it has to be down. Doesn’t it?

    It does, but the boy Michael lives on Dartmoor, so what’s down to us is up to him. (Actually it’s more sideways, but ‘Going sideways to London’, would sound a bit daft, would it not?)

    Not really, we’d replace “sideways to” with “across to” and that would work for most of the south of England and Wales. In any case, I don’t think we’ll be changing anything soon. Amusing though.
