The sweariest making tea ever! 😂🤐
Now watching Philip K Dick inspired 'Electric Dreams' - one of my favourite authors. Let's hope channel 4 do a good job... ... See MoreSee Less
want to see this!
Electric Dreams Episode One - 'The Hoodmaker' - so far so good 😀
Yep we are giving it a go... Will reconvene later 😊
What did you think? I enjoyed it mostly, except that visually, in parts it looked like a cheap Blade Runner knockoff with Cortinas instead of flying cars 😂

I have been the victim of a few "death grips"..unpleasant and painful!
Please don't come on here teaching women how to do manly handshakes. It is the last manly bastion of things we do better than you. Has the assault by women kind come to this now? 😀
Always keep eye contact - just for the eroticism of the moment. And ALWAYS wear a hat.
The idea to get Quick-Kill 3 started has just popped into my head. Thank you subconscious 😀 ... See MoreSee Less
If music be the food of love, what be the food of hate? I'd certainly nominate celery... ... See MoreSee Less
Shellfish (allergic) and blue cheese (because it's rank)
Butter beans!!!! 😣😖🤐
It's actually a close contest between coffee revels and butter beans for me.
Anything with cinnamon in it.
Love a warm cinnamon roll.
Mushrooms are the devil's arse biscuits.
Celery or kidney.
Cod roe, the thing that comes in a tin, then sliced and fried. It induces a vomit reflex in me!
PS: I like celery, esp with hummus dip.
oh noooo...I love celery.....
celery has no taste---I eat it with peanut butter
An interesting fact about celery is that you expend more calories digesting it than you get from digesting it. So good as a dieting tool, but only for masochists...
yes, I've been aware of that fact since childhood---my mother was always making me diet

Off to a diner party as someone's guest and don't know anyone else. Didn't know it was a dinner party either. Small talk. Hates it. Stressed out. 😱 ... See MoreSee Less
Covertly take the micky out of the other guests so that only u know it's happening! Amuse yourself 😁
Could work in your favour not knowing anybody, easier to get them to jabber on about themselves
Hmm u could just ask everyone what the do for a living ... I still think some form of Mickey taking is more fun ..
In the taxi now. Doomed man
You will be fine Kev... I was not feeling at all sociable last night but pushed myself in to a game of 6 a side football with workmates .. I'm now a cripple but I'm glad I did it ... Even tho at the time I did not want to be around people ...
Ooh I feel your awkward in this, not my bag either. Just enjoy the free food is all I can offer up, (no good advice sadly!)
No useful advice but there must be an F1 fan there x
Be yourself and you'll (1) have a good time or (2) be home soon 💪
Still here. Have talked to three people. Haha
I hear ya. I'm the worst, especially with other dudes, I just zone out as soon as sport is mentioned and disappear into the shadows.
Without blowing smoke up your arse, I can't imagine a better person to bump into at a dinner party. I always found you charming company who led conversations on a great range of topics. Your asd gives you a skewed view of how others perceive you 😊.
a lot of people are socially awkward, me included. but I'm a loud mouthy introvert, so there's that.
My daily 1,500 words leapt out my fingers this morning unlike yesterday's painful wrenching. Ack!
Vatic Book 2 'Ariadne' Draft One will be finished sometime this week 😀
I've finally joined up with my ending I wrote first all those months ago. A few minor changes needed - it's a different bad guy now/or gal! - and Draft 2 will be on its way...
Draft 2 is my favourite bit where I can add all that 'polish' - haha - or the 'flim flam' as it's also known.
Here's the provisional cover. The strapline is changing btw... ... See MoreSee Less
Lovely 5 Star review for Quick-Kill and the Galactic Secret Service: "Quick-Kill is a joy ride from page one as wise-cracking, tough-as-nails Quick-Kill Jane grabs your attention from first to last. Brilliant, well-written and most fun book I've enjoyed for years!" - and it's still free: smarturl.it/quick-kill ... See MoreSee Less
Just read it on the plane home ... cracking read Kev !
There are days when the writing leaps out of my fingertips with little or no effort 😍
And then there are days like today when every bloody word is wrenched, kicking and screaming from the ether 😡

Presently in the 'I hate this story I'm working on... it's utter rubbish' phase. Always a pleasant place to be 😦😦😦 ... See MoreSee Less
Oh, how I know that phase! Like walking through a lovely garden--covered in thorns and swarming with bees....
...Barefoot, with added broken glass and those are not bees... they're mutant killer asshole wasps!
And somehow the wasps are salting the earth and covering the glass in lemon-juice...
A tea, a walk, a stare at a tree for a bit... and then come back. You'll still hate it, but those things are good for the rest of your brain. 😉 Just finish it. Then your editor can deal with its problems. 😂
I have finished it and still don't like it. Gonna give it a week. Take another look and it's over to you.
I knew it!
What to do... muck around on social media some more or restart work on Vatic 2? Hmmm. It's a knotty one... ... See MoreSee Less
I'd rather like to read that ....so get writing my man 😉
Aw bugga! I knew someone would say that
C'mon ....you're killing us with suspense here !!
Hopefully the sequel will do the same. Only 20K to go, so it'll be done for Novemberish time
The only problem? I don't know what the fuck is going on 😱
Oh dear ! A recap is in order ! And tea
It's my process... I never know what's going on. I have to solve the mystery just as much as Vatic. He managed it last time, so there is hope... 😂
Well let's hope u don't end up in the same peril and as close to death ! 😲
Don't worry. The biggest peril that happened to me recently was nearly running out of tea...
That was a bit irresponsible 😂
I live on the fucking edge, me
Any chance u will have it finished in time for me to read in my hols ?
I finished a book last week and started the next because it was getting too long. The Nuclear Genocide Ending. (WARNING! Contains nuclear genocide. If you have ever experienced an adverse or allergic effect from vast, epic amounts of nuclear fallout, then I strongly advise that you suit up heavily before reading the following passage. This ending is specifically written for those people who hate a happy ending and are willing to sacrifice Gigino, Higan and Lemli. The Mayor and his entourage. Jonnie! Farius and King Humphrey. Even, good old, fat, Bagbi Sellers. All blown into their fundamental atoms by a race obsessed with nuclear war. This was my solution, nuke everything, while you ponder an alternative ending.
Just in case you didn't get to visit in person...

I did the Star Trek the Experience in Las Vegas years ago and they had a mock up of the bridge that you got to tour and have your picture taken in the captain's chair. It was the most awesome thing ever!
Yeah, ok, it looks a lot better than Star Trek Online.
I just finished reading Quick Kill #2. Bravo Kev! Another great read. Left a review on Amazon. People! Buy this book and read it!! It's a real steal at 99 cents!
Nice to see young Mick Schumacher driving his dad's old Benetton
Pretty car with those white wheel rims
What stunned me about Schumacher seniors wins in the Benetton was that they had a V8 to start with against the V10 in the Williams...😲
Shame this is from the Daily Hate... but it's made my bank holiday weekend so far... www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgZ9_T-dAnU 😂😂😂This is the moment that a dog jumped straight into a rolling camera after attempting and failing to catch a frisbee. Pooch to the face! Hilarious moment dog ... ... See MoreSee Less
Didn't sleep well at all. Maybe it's the excitement of today's next Quick-Kill release? 'Properly knackered' as we say up north like. I dreamt I was in 'Lost In Space'. A show I haven't seen for nearly 20 years. 'Danger, Kev Heritage! Danger!' Maybe I should stay in bed? ... See MoreSee Less
wow, where did you see it that recently? except for the movie with William Hurt-show hasn't been around since the 60s!--at least not on my channels! Did you know the original dad also played Zorro?
I have no idea. I used to love it as a kid. Just popped into my dreams for no reason I can work out. Maybe I wasn't aware of sparked it. My brain can be a little odd at the best of time...

GOOD MORNING, EVERYBUDDY! I'm up and ready to tackle today's prose. Big mug of loverly tea. Fingers poised over the plastic! #FridayFeeling ... See MoreSee Less
That was my second mug by the way... I'm now a certified teapot user 😍
..looks good! one question Kev...how/when did you start writing? Has this always been your passion??
I started writing at school, I wasn't seen as A-stream material so instead of doing English O Level, I was put on the sub-standard CSE. To give you an idea - a grade 1 in CSE is equal to a 'C' grade at O-level. Stupid system. But part of the CSE examination was to write stories. I think I had to write one a week or something. I loved writing those stories. It soon became apparent that I was in the wrong stream and so they wanted me to go into the O Level class half way through that year. But they did boring stuff like grammar and past-participle whatnots. I still don't really know about all that - heresy! To to be honest, I don't need to know. I never learnt to read or write music either but it's never stopped me playing and writing songs. I decided to stick with the CSE and got my Grade 1. I wasn't a great writer, but it taught me that I could finish stories. It also introduced me to my pantster technique of writing stories with no clear idea of where I'm going. Those Wednesday afternoons all those years ago were spent on pure voyages of discovery. It seemed an impossible dream to be ever become like those sci-fi writers who's books I used to read non-stop. But now I is one 😱
thx very much for your honesty...very interesting and inspiring...sometimes dreams DO come true! 😉👌
I had to practice in between tho 😂
They should be all smoking
Pootling off to Spain in a few hours 😀✈️😎☀️ ... See MoreSee Less
You got your drugged milkshake ready? Have a brill time 😊
Hasta la vista Kev.... 😎
Enjoy your time off ! 👌😎
Now enjoying the full-on glamour of Gatwick Airport 😂
In Spain. Have driven on the wrong of side of the road with only minor problems/crashes
Now back from pootling. Now recovering.
Only just sen this! Hehe
Quick-kill and the 'Do or Die' is released very, very soon. Please get in touch if you want to help with my marketing push 😀 ... See MoreSee Less
Another day spent in my favourite Spanish beach bar! Just how am I going to cope when I have to go back to #Brexit UK? #1stWorldProblems #Galicia ... See MoreSee Less
Over on Twitter I've lost 12K followers since Brexit, Trump and the UK general election. And along the way, I must've certainly lost book sales.
The advice to authors that I've read time and time again is: 'do not be political online'.
But to write is to think. To have opinions. I can't write or live my life any other way.
Expect more of the same 😀 ... See MoreSee Less
I wish I had 12k followers to lose 😢
You're not alone I'm sure. Their loss in my humble opinion. ☺️ We're on the same page, (no writer pun intended), Trump and brexit wise but even if we weren't I'd hate to think I was so fickle as to unfollow someone because they have a diff political view to mine, how sad, blinkered and intolerant some folk are. 😕
We are in extraordinary times. Keep on.

Flicking through Spanish TV last night and found the wonderful Total Recall. Still a cracker of a movie 😀 ... See MoreSee Less
Running Man is worth revisiting too
Love it 😍
This film is exactly the sort of bollocks I was talking about. The bit where they get caught out on the surface and their eyes come out on stalks as they suffocate. Hilarious 😀
Haha. That's one of the best scenes. The whole movie has a plastic feel. Even Arnie's make-up. So that when they switch from Arnie to one of his fake faces it works.
Bloody damn hot in Spain today... Scorchio! ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️ but the weather may be changing youtube.com ... See MoreSee Less
too hot for me! how much longer are you there?

The thing I really hate about science fiction is the “If we press this button, it will all be right.” Mechanism. And the unforgivable “If we do nothing but this, for an entire episode, then it will all be fine and no-one will notice” Assumption. Dr Who has dallied with the former so many times that is is now an accepted literary cliché and Star Trek has flirted with the latter so many times that they had to start listening to the people who were pointing out that they were doing it.
Actually, it's not all right to hide behind “Because it's science, ok?” And then spout some Geordi La Forge type bollocks to make it sound like the scriptwriters know what the fook they're talking about. If your manifold bypass conductors don't have a direct line to your transphase distributor, then this will cause an imbalance in your capacitance converter, everyone knows that, duh! Anyone who isn't already aware of this, let's face it, widely available information, probably deserves to have a meltdown in their core plasma relays.
The thing where Science Fiction saves itself these days is the, very hard to judge “Look, it's supposed to be this bollocks” Element. Star Trek 4 encapsulated this and they've been flogging it ever since and making it an art form. This was, basically, Star Trek owning their sillyness, again, and telling us they could save the whale. It is impossible to argue against that, to analyse it, to perhaps be critical of it. It is hard to maintain that a battered Klingon scout ship would have been torn apart by the gravity of our sun anyway, without, at the same time, sounding like you don't actually want to save the whale. They totally had us over a barrel with the bollocks in Star Trek 4. You were supposed to laugh at these great adventurers from The Sixties, come to set the world to rights, again.
It's a shame we still haven't got around to Saving The Whale. There have been breakthroughs and many setbacks. Their story continues, for now. ... See MoreSee Less
1.800 words done today on my story for Gravity City and... and an actual sniff of an ending. I think I now know where it's going to go. Just a sniff, mind you. But it gives me hope 😀 ... See MoreSee Less
BBC Radio 4 debate with the guy who wrote a book on dieting denying Climate Change with a renowned meteorological scientist. It's happening more and more frequently... the only qualification these people have is being a rich member of the elite - which somehow gives them a platform to spout utter bollocks. Why? The BBC is falling into the same trap as the US media who give vast amounts of airtime to people who have no qualifications turning scientific debate into politics. The BBC is showing itself as the mouthpiece of the elite. And we pay for these jokers. ... See MoreSee Less
In our post truth reality, the requirement of knowing what the fuck you're talking about is no longer relevant. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, everyone goes on about their opinion and 99% of people couldn't hope to grasp how uninformed and vacuous their opinion is, because they are surrounded by people who's opinion is equally as stupid and they're not really clever enough to tell.
Another shabby writing day. Being an author sucks sometimes... 😂 ... See MoreSee Less
I don't believe in writer's block. But I do believe in writer's not facing up to the fact that they should be writing - even when on holiday in Spain. Get your act together Kev! ... See MoreSee Less
Holiday = not working. Enjoy yourself!
Haha. No such luxury
