Join fellow readers (and listeners) who receive regular emails about the progress of The War of Wind and Moon. You'll never miss the release of a chapter and you'll be first to know little extras about the world of WoWaM like: what exactly are Gossips and their fellow Shades? or; what are the real-world inspirations for the international locations we'll visit as WoWaM unfolds?
Wow! With the writing jag induced by Superman’s business trip to Oz (and thus no need for me to have normal sleep patterns) followed a day later by the arrival of his parents, the week has flown! These weren’t meant to be back to back posts but… there you go!
This talk is one of my favourites – again insightful as well as funny. Ad-exec Rory Sutherland explores the history of adding value by changing perception of a product rather than changing the product itself. Interesting thoughts on future consumerism which lead to some fascinating questions re: our understanding of our personal pursuit of happiness/satisfaction. Could spindoctors become the saviours of humankind by turning their, sometimes frightening, insight into the human heart to convincing us to value what we already have or really need more than that which we think we want?
Writer, reader, traveler, gadget geek, dilettante photographer and ancient history buff. I used to turn other writers' stories into audio books, now I write my own. My debut novel, As Long As She Lives, is out now!
