OK, so I’m no film maker.
I can’t draw either.
I’m not even all that good at cutting out paper ‘n’ stuff. But . . . and you knew there’d be a ‘but’, didn’t you? . . . but I was messing about with istopmotion and thought ‘hey, I could do a thing with paper cut-outs and make it look like the manuscript for The Child Thief has come to life and it’ll be AMAZING!‘
Well, all right, maybe it’s not amazing. In fact it’s a bit crude, but I had fun putting it together and there’s a catchy tune, so if you’ve got a minute and 13 seconds to spare, you might want to have a little look at my modest attempt at stop motion with paper cut outs.
Oh yeah, and there’s this little bit of news about AN OFFER FROM A US PUBLISHER, which is nice. I’ll tell you all about it later, once everything’s confirmed, but Orion has been busy pushing my book on foreign publishers, so a bite from the US is great news. And there should be printed finished copies of THE CHILD THIEF in time for the London Book Fair next month to tempt further offers.
