The site was down for a while recently, but now the internet elves have been fed and all is well. Apologies for the
In the interim, there have been a few developments here at Holder Towers.
Firstly I had a guest blog on the splendid film & TV website Stage 32, discussing writing scripts for corporate videos. My thanks to RB, Shannon and Andre at Stage 32 for facilitating this, and to all those who responded to the blog
and their kind comments.
Then I delivered the manuscript for my 36th non-fiction book, another on weird history. Further news on the
publication of this series later in the year.
I’m also delighted to announce that I’m collaborating with a talented illustrator on a vampire-themed bande dessinée (graphic novel). Once the 5-page sample is honed to perfection we’ll be pitching it to French BD publishers.
While all this is happening I’m continuing with the ProSeries screenwriting course at ScreenwritingU, which is superb. I’m slightly in awe of some of my fellow students and their abilities. Me, I’m working on a supernatural western
feature script for the course. I’m also taking a class on writing horror films with a Hollywood producer, which is the
bees’ knees. And I’m writing an entry for the Industry Insider Screenwriting Contest.
So, movies, graphic novels, weird history – exciting times ahead, girls and boys.
