Christmas Comes Early!


Announcement! This is me, announcing the announcement! And the announcement, announced by me, is: I'm going to have a short story published in a new Doctor Who short story collection, published by Big Finish. It's called Christmas Around The World, and all the stories have a Christmassy theme, which the more astute of you may have guessed from the title. What with it containing the word "Christmas". Dead giveaway, that. Oh yes. Here's the sleeve of last year's compilation, Short Trips: The Ghosts Of Christmas.

The extra special part of this announcement? One of the other authors is a devilishly handsome young rake and fellow scriboblogger called Jason "Jason Arnopp" Arnopp. You may clickyclicky on his name to check out his hot blog action. Good lord, sirs and madams - we're both in the same book! It's like being in the same boat, but it's a book instead of a boat. Obviously we are both thunderously excited about this, and have been shrieking at each other like a couple of schoolgirls for several days now. We'll let you know when it's released - but all the clues are pointing towards it being somewhere in the region of Christmas time. But for the sweet love of the festive baby Jesus, don't say I told you.

Two bloggers in one book!!!???!!!

It may be too much for us mere mortals to handle. I suggest that this book should not be read unless the reader is wearing oven gloves, covered head to toe in tin foil, a full face SAS balaclava, and rubber soled shoes. A quiet, darkish, sound proofed room with lockable doors is also recommended. Not adviasable for under 21's unless an adult is holding their hand.

Does it come with a Government Health Warning?

Jolly well done, sirs!!!!!!!!

What is this double-blogging witchcraft?!

Fabulous news!

Oh good Lord - I thought no, surely not MORE Dr. Who is springing forth into the world like some kind of bizarre monster from a 1950s creature feature you can't kill, but OH NO: you two are exacerbating this EVIL even more! And boasting about it! In duplicate!

Your death warrants are in the post.

P.S. I cannot effing believe everyone is posting double too. And that I am as well. When did I become a geek?

Helen Smith said...

Alright I'm not gonna double-post cause it's just silly but well done both of you xxx

Lee said...

Wonderful Christmas news. I am glistening my baubles in anticipation.

Does the Doctor take all of his companions out to the woods for a retreat...?

Congratulations. I knew there was pulp running through your veins...

Ah. Christmas and Doctor Who - two of my most favouritist things (as Del-Boy might say).

Only 9 days to Series 4 and the anticipation is already killing me. Be very interested to see your new episode.

Even Neil Gaiman expressed his childish glee after spending a lunch chatting DW with Stephen Moffat. There's just something about the show that makes it appeal to writers, unlike, say, Star trek that appealed to computer technicians.

Jolly well done to you sir!!!!
Can't wait to get my grubby little paws on that little delight!
