‘To draw a curtain around a mental space’ – The Undercover Soundtrack, Bryan Furuness

for logoMy guest this week measures his novels in rainstorms. More accurately, I should say he measures them in how many times he has listened to one rainstorm during the writing. His novel is about a dreamy and messianic boy, and he used a loop of weather noises to cocoon himself in a mental space where he felt composed enough to write. The result is a meditative post, perhaps perfect for summer days in the drowsy grip of a heatwave. His name is Bryan Furuness and he’s on the Red Blog with his Undercover Soundtrack.

GIVEAWAY Bryan is giving away 2 paperback copies of The Lost Episodes of Revie Bryson to commenters here. Extra entries if you share the post on Twitter, Facebook or other platforms – but remember to note in your comment here that you have! He also asks that if you happen to win, he’d be extremely grateful for a review on Amazon or Goodreads – favourable or otherwise.

Also, don’t forget that there’s a giveaway here on the Purple Blog  as well… to celebrate a new cover.

The writing advice I most cherish – interviewed at the Potomac Review

Does writing get any easier the more novels you finish? Does anything get harder? What piece of writing advice do I most cherish? I’m being interviewed today at the Potomac Review, the bi-annual American literary journal of fiction, poetry nonfiction and photography. One of its custodians got in touch after reading My Memories of a Future Life  and I’m honoured to be featured on its exquisite pages.

Proper post from me soon, but speaking of MMOAFL, you can get episode 1 for free on Kindle – but hurry to the Kindle store right now as the offer vanishes after December 30…
