podcasts and plans

The podcast of my story, “The Tamga” is now available as issue 178 on Pseudopod, read by the talented Cheyenne Wright.

It’s always a thrill to have my work podcast, because it gets it out to such a wide audience. Plus, the Pseudopod team produce excellent recordings. Cheyenne does a great job with the story. He’s not only a talented voice actor, he’s also the colourist for the fabulous web comic Girl Genius, which is one of my personal favourites.

My own graphic novel project, Róisín Dubh, is proceeding well. Last week I had a meeting in Dublin with Rob Curley of Atomic Diner and Sub City fame, as well as the artist for the project, Stephen Daly. It was great to sit down and strategise on the project.

At the moment the plan is to produce a 10-page teaser for March, with the graphic novel appearing mid-year. This will be useful since I’m attending P-Con in early March, followed by a double-header of conventions a few weeks later: World Horror Convention in Brighton, and Eastercon (Odyssey 2010) in glamorous Heathrow, London.
