I’ve been interviewed on a few book blogs lately, talking about my new novel A Virtual Love, and also my writing in general. If you’re interested, here are the links:
- Manchester book blogger The Workshy Fop asked me about the political dimensions of the book, and about my views on blogging and internet culture
- Ghanaian-born, South African-based book blogger Geosi did a wide-ranging interview on the book, my early career, what I learned from being a journalist, and whether I regret giving up a lucrative corporate banking career
- Fellow writer Maria Savva interviewed me on her Goodreads blog, and is also running a giveaway: enter by 30th April to win a free signed copy of A Virtual Love
I have also written a couple of guest posts this week. On Amazon’s Kindle Post, I wrote about some of the plot devices that fiction writers are having to abandon due to technology, and on Write to Done, I wrote about my favourite piece of writing advice, and an often overlooked one: keeping a dream journal. And I’m due on The Undercover Soundtrack in a few days, talking about the musical influences behind A Virtual Love – and there’ll be another chance to win a signed copy there. So busy times!
Update: the Undercover Soundtrack post is now live: http://mymemoriesofafuturelife.com/2013/04/24/the-undercover-soundtrack-andrew-blackman-2/
The reviews are still coming in on book blogs and websites, but instead of posting about all of them, I’m adding them to a separate page on the site where I’m collecting all the reviews of A Virtual Love.
