It's been a while but thankfully that's because I've been busy. And in a good way.
Some news, however. A couple of flash fiction pieces from the forthcoming collection, "State of the Nation" are going to be broadcast on the spoken word, live literature and oral art Internet radio station, "Radio Wildfire" on Monday 7th September between 8 and 10pm (GMT).
The stories themselves ("Genuine Photo" and "The Girl Within") are short flash pieces but these particular pieces are somewhat different as they are my first experiments with multi-track recording, using music (albeit being limited by Royalty-free tunes) and FX. While the stories are my usual fare (albeit shorter - I've been working on far too many 2- 40,000 word pieces recently), I readily admit that I was heavily influenced by Chris Morris' Blue Jam work, although this was more a case of writing the stories and thinking, "Wow, that's quite Blue Jam-esque" rather than actually attempting to copy or emulate that style.
Anyway, listen in to "Radio Wildfire" on Monday 7th September between 8 and 10pm (GMT). This will be the second time they've been gracious enough to accept my spoken word work (the broadcast a reading of "BobandJane" many moons ago) and they also feature a number of poets, writers and spoken word performers who I am familiar with from the West Midlands and Worcestershire scenes, all of whom are well worth your time.
Hope you enjoy them!
