At the Assembly Hall in Royal Tunbridge Wells,
speaking to a packed house
Hello –  I hope you’re as happy to see me again as I am to see you. It’s been many months since my last post and it’s been a busy time for me. I’m always very much in demand as a motivational speaker and there are disappointed, aimless humans everywhere who’ve been benefiting from my advice during my world tour.

As many of you know, last year I co-wrote a novel, Small White Dog, with Moira Waugh and I expect you'd like to know how we've been getting on with that. 

Meeting members of the audience
While I've been away, Moira's been sending samples of the m/s to London literary agents and one top agent actually asked to see the whole novel!

Sadly, they decided not to represent us after all but I managed to motivate Moira to undertake an extensive rewrite and now she's starting to submit to agents again.

Helping people can be tiring
Now that I'm back from touring, I have started collaborating with Moira on a new novel, Dangerously Smudged. I don't feature in this one but I think it'll be fairly readable anyway. 

Look out for my next post which will be about Love and Mating!

BTW, if you need top notch music for a film you're making or a project you're working on, you couldn't do better than to browse this excellent site:

Custard slices (anything with custard really).


  1. How fabulous to read a snippet from my favorite dog around! 'Dangerously Smudged' looks like another fabulous collab. I can't wait to read more!

    p.s. Thank you for the kind shout out about Thinkroot Records. We are so very pleased that the silky-voiced Moira is part of the site!

  2. How nice to hear from you, Ms Kara. I'm glad you enjoyed reading the two extracts from my new collaboration with Moira. We're having fun writing it together. When it's made into a film, we'll turn to Thinkroot Records for the music score.

    I was going to write a post about love and mating for my next blog, but instead I think I'll do some restaurant reviewing after my recent visit home to the UK.

    Very best wishes to you

    Tony Russell
