Welcome to post two of the Into the Grey musical blog tour, in which I share videos of seven songs that feature in my 1970’s ghost novel Into the Grey, and explain what those songs mean to me and to the story. Today the tour is hosted by one of the most tireless reviewers in YA-dom, Jim of YA? YEAH YEAH! I love Jim’s in depth analytical reviews, you should check them out both at YA?YEAH YEAH and over at his other site YA Contemporary (as well as the bookbag where he is a regular contributor). I’m very lucky to have him agree to host the tour. Off you go now for a another wee taste of Into the Grey and a little blast from The Rolling Stones asking for some Sympathy for the Devil.
- So many writers come to class with one question dominant in their mind, 'How do I make a living from this?' It's a fair enough question and one I always try to answer well - but it saddens me that it so often overshadows the more relevant questions of 'why am I writing' and 'what am I saying' and 'how do I keep it honest.'
[NOTE: I get many requests to read and comment on manuscripts, which I have to regretfully decline. However I do occasionally work as a consultant for The Inkwell Group If I am accepting MS's at the time and you ask for me by name, they will pass your work on to me.
