Busy month. So busy I didn’t have time to make my little music chart. I managed to plough through 100 pages of the manuscript, so the second draft should be finished by the end of July. I unexpectedly received a glowing review (9/10!) for By the Feet of Men from Starburst Magazine, a useful appraisal from Foreword Reviews for their July/August print magazine, and a detailed critique from Literary Portals that has maybe my favourite quote in any review so far (“it was just too brutal and depressing for me, with a too realistic portrayal of humanity at its worst, eerily believable and entirely too possible in the not so distant future”). Also, as I said in my last post, I wrote a guest article on author Kate Vane’s website about the power of fiction to change the discourse on the climate emergency for the better. And I wrote a piece about refugees living in Germany for Lemon Theory Magazine.
There should be more baller content that is en voie d’èlaboration. We’ll see.
Music for the hot times:
