Pleased to have just submitted a piece on parents, teens and gaming. It’s for a new magazine for hopeful release later in 2014, will link to piece once it’s published.
Update: here’s the mag’s website, go support them as they won’t be able to continue beyond issue #1 if they don’t get some interest happening.
Here’s my small contribution to the magazine:
Pleased to do another review piece, this time on The Jet Lag Monologues, a live reading performance of excerpts of Bob Carr’s Diary of a Foreign Minister.
Review is here.
Completed another short piece for Bleeding Cool, profiling some more Australian comics creators.
You can read it here.
There’s some brilliant talent locally that deserves a lot more attention than it’s getting.
If you’re an Australian or New Zealand creator that’d like your work profiled, drop me a line via here. I write for Bleeding Cool infrequently but try to cover as much local stuff as I can on The Comics Herald.
I’ve penned a review of Bob Carr’s latest book, Diary of a Foreign Minister. Read the full review here – it’s a book worth buying if you have any interest in contemporary Australian or international politics.
Update: the review has also been posted on Bob Ellis’ blog.
It’s been a very quiet year on the writing front, with the decline in freelance jobs really hitting across the board. Combine that with my day job and I don’t feel I’ve done a lot.
That said, I’ve had some pleasing progress on the fiction front. I have a novel outline mostly complete and some initial writing undertaken as well. It’s slower going on my graphic novel script but it’s still slowly progressing.
Here’s hoping 2014 is a more productive one from a writing viewpoint, and I hope it’s a great one for you.
Pleased to do an other piece for the ABC – this time on the recently released Marvel Heroes MMO from Gazillion. You can read it here.
It was nice to move well outside the tech sphere to provide two show reports for veteran Springsteen site Backstreets. As a huge Springsteen fan myself, it’s far from objective but it was a great show – Springsteen is one of the last great bandleaders.
Article here (go to 2013 setlists and look for the March 18th and 20th 2013 shows in Sydney)
Just completed a 3000-word music app roundup for Australian Macworld – hard to believe I’ve been writing for the venerable mag / website for over 10 years now. Here’s the link for the feature.
Also lots of editing and writing over at The Oceanic Gamer – it’s a great team I have over there now and if you’re into MMOs at all it’s worth a look.
Pleased to do a third piece for Bleeding Cool, this time a review of an independent local comic release.
Read the review here.
I’ve been slack submitting stuff to the ABC, so I’m glad to break the drought with a piece on MMOs and how the dollar can work against innovation.
