Dancing With Myself: GERARD BRENNAN interviews GERARD BRENNAN

There are lovely things happening all over the place just now.

I'd like to point out some of my favourites.

At The Bijou continue with Noirvember and it's somewhere I'll be checking daily for the rest of the month.

Sabrina Ogden had me over for a guest post yesterday and I'm deeply flattered to be there.  It's about White Fang and how it influenced my work, Smoke.

You can still get a free copy of a Douglas Lindsay novella over at Blasted Heath by signing up for the newsletter there and if you're stuck for Christmas present ideas, they might just have the solution.

Les Edgerton has a book on writing techniques that is currently free over at Amazon (don't look a gift horse in the mouth).

Ron Thomas Brown paid a visit to Shotgun Honey.

Into Thin Air crept back in to the Waterstone's Top 10 Short Stories (thanks).

And I'm currently reading The Point by Gerard Brennan.  I shall be reviewing it later in the week.  Suffice it to say, I'm really enjoying it and if my eyes hadn't packed up on me last night, I would have.

So welcome to the dance, ladies and gentleman, the amazing Gerard Brenan.  It's a flash-interview:

So what makes you think you’re worthy of a Sea Minor interview?

I can dance.


No. But I can write.

Says who?


What people?

Look, if you’re going to continue in this aggressive tone—


Jeez, all right. If the blurbs for my novella are to be believed—


Ach, shut up. I got blurbs, I got some credentials, I got a novella published. I’m working hard to put out the best fiction I can possibly write and there’s just one person standing in my way.


Well, if you have to ask… butt-munch.

I know you are, but what am I?

I’m done with this interview.


  1. Yep, I'll be reviewing The Point this weekend. Lovely read. BTW Les Edgerton's Hooked is the best 'how to' book on writing that I've read. And the only one I've finished.

  2. Cheers, gents! Dying to find out what you thought.
