So my new Short e, 33rd County, will be released later this summer. It’s about a guy who gets in trouble with the authorities over his blog, which is something that seems to be happening more and more these days. Freedom of speech, it seems, comes with consequences.
At the moment I’m also looking for a new contract in my day job. I had a cracking interview last week and got down to the last two! Hurrah! However, before I could interview for the final stage, the company withdrew their interest in me – all because of a blog post I wrote a year ago! Now don’t get me wrong, I am not bitter about this and I am certainly not blaming them – they have stated their position and I would probably have taken the same decision. But the irony is not lost that the theme of my new story has just played out in my life!
