Life, brought to you by Madness and Insanity
December 14, 2014
Over this past year, I’ve taken 60 flights (both international and domestic), 2 helicopter rides, and 2 jetpack trips. Tanya and I have also moved approximately 4,000km west from Sydney to Perth. Half of my belongings are at the new house in Perth, the other half are in storage in NSW awaiting transport across – oh, plus there are a few boxes at Tanya’s folks’ place, where we’re currently staying. To say my head is fried and I’m a little uncertain where I am would be an understatement.
My itinerary over the past couple of months went like this: 4 weeks in PNG on a rig, 1 week home, then 3 weeks in Maitland (SA), 2.5 weeks at home, then 2.5 weeks in Perth, 5 days at home, then back to the rig in PNG for 3 weeks, then home with 2 days to pack up the house, 2 days to clean the house, then off to Perth to sort out the new house, 9 days there and then off to Brisbane for the weekend, then back to Newcastle for 5 days, and now in PNG again for 4 weeks.
Currently Working On:
Latest Novel: Motel of Blades is now sitting at 33,099 words. this will be a demented joyride into the depths of insanity and depravity…
Blurring the Line: submissions are now closed and I’m in the process of going through my long shortlist. Full details of the anthology can be found here.
The Midnight Tree novels – how far would one man go to get to the truth? and how far would those he has wronged go to extract their terrible revenge?
Update: the first three books have been edited, so I’ll soon be delving back into these books to address the issues identified. Very likely these books will be self-published.
The titles in this series thus far are:
Revelations (Book I)
The Midnight Tree (Book II)
A Plague of Locusts (Book III)
Things to see and do at Marty’s World:
You could visit Parkton, where odd things happen more often than they should (pack a lunch, cos a day trip could turn into weeks)…
There are more attractions on their way as the local government has just agreed to invest into improving the infrastructure to support the budding tourist attractions. I even hear there is going to be a page on Palynology, so when the next person says ‘huh?’ when I explain what my day job involves, I can point them here…
