Holy Shit

Heres some more

Loads of stuff

Lots of stuff to announce here.

First a press release from my publishers.

Insomnia On Demand: Catch the RedEye on PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable)

In the blackest hours before dawn, when all good comic readers were tucked up in bed, the Insomniacs crawled into their dreams.

What were they whispering into the darkness? What did they wish for, lost in the sleep of the innocent?

No less than:

· To be able read Insomnia comics anywhere, at any time

· Take their entire comics collections wherever they went

· To listen to their own music while reading

· To navigate pages their own way

· To find and buy comics easily and access content instantly from the PlayStation®Store

All this will be on offer for PSP owners in December 2009, with the opening of the Digital Comics Store on the PlayStation®Network.

Red Eyed and bushy tailed, Insomnia Publications will be standing proud on launch day as our critically acclaimed books take their place on the virtual shelves, next to world famous names in comic book publishing.

Insomnia Publications’ graphic novels will be presented in the store as single-issue length chapters, following the publication of the book. The first chapter of every book will be offered free to readers as a “taster” of the story.

Crawford Coutts, Managing Director of Insomnia Publications, says:

“We are incredibly excited to be partnering with Sony in the launch of the Digital Comics Service.

Insomnia is committed to nurturing the very best new art, new writing and new concepts in its original graphic novels and the unprecedented scope of this Comics Store will connect independent publishers and readers around the globe.

The help and guidance we have received from Sony throughout truly demonstrates their commitment to support the medium, the publishers, the readers and the comics industry itself.

Many of our creators are gamers themselves and so were delighted to hear that their work will be offered through PlayStation Network.”

With the first Insomnia titles available right from the December launch, you will be able to:

· Unlock Cages (

· Fall into Cancertown (

· Dissect the bloody history of the notorious Burke and Hare (

With a growing range of titles to choose from and the phenomenal scope of the Digital Comics Store, this is just the beginning..

I've never blogged before but it seems like every other writer in the world does. So here it goes.
I will use this blog to keep people updated as to what I'm doing at the moment (ha, as if any of you care)
I'm in the process of writing a graphic novel for insomnia publications (find it here called dead goats. The description my editor Nic gives of the book in the previous link is much better than i could ever do so i'm not going to attempt it.
I'm also going to be in the Insomnia publications Layer Zero anthology with my story Uberleden featuring the great art of Mike Dowling (check out his stuff here
I'm also submitting a story to Robert Heske's 2012 end of the world anthology with artist Andy Fish. Heres a sample page.

This is the very first thing i've ever written drawn so to me its pretty cool.
Anyway thats the end of my first blog. hope it went well
