In the life of a writer sometimes lots of things happen all at once (and sometimes nothing happens at all!) Here is my mini blog: I jot down my thoughts whenever I get a free minute....
And a very happy 2017 to everyone that has stumbled onto this page!
New Year's resolution no. 2136455734/a part 1. This year I vow to update my miniblog as often as I can for no other reason than it makes the skull on my desk smile knowingly! He is such a happy chap! (Actually, he could be a she, but judging from its burps deep in the night I am assuming that it's a bloke's skull!)
Sooooo, as I have neglected all things writey for so long, I guess I better do something before I hit the big 5-0.
My comedy novel "Chips and Wandering Minds" will be published this year, but I have got some options to think about with regards as to how it does in the big wide world. Some people have commented on my use of comedy in 'The Changing' but little do they know that writing silly scenarios is something at the very heart of me, so it must happen I'm afraid!
My second horror novel will be 'The Kirk' and in my opinion far outstrips 'The Changing' in every conceivable way. 'The Changing' was a millstone around my neck and I started to resent it, although I am very proud of the lovely comments I have received about it.
But how does one balance being a horror writer and a comedy writer? I think I'd need a web site revamp for a start, which considering how pants my current one is, is probably no bad thing.
Anyway, any positive answers on a postcard please to the usual address...
Love, light and peace to you all!
If you would like to ask Davy something about his writing, then drop him a line.
Hi! And thanks for landing on this page.
Davy Taylor is a new writer from London, England whose first horror novel 'The Changing' is available from most online stockists and also as an e-book including Kindle.
Taylor has been interested in the horror genre since he was a child and he has now decided to use his knowledge of the subject to write about scenarios that have been running about his mind for many years. He is a constant student of the day to day behaviour of the human race and what he finds positive and negative about it has been finding its way into his writing.
His style of writing has been likened to a cross between Stephen King and Nick Hornby and considering that these are two authors that Taylor holds in the highest regard then that is not surprising! He believes in humour as a counterpoint to the darker aspects of a plot, a way of "deepening an emotional roller coaster ride."
Taylor writes about normal and everyday scenarios that he has seen and continues to see and throws a worrying spanner into the works; this, he believes, is not always so far removed from the truth, as he feels that more and more people are seeing the world "through cracked glasses."
Taylor is working on his second horror novel but before that he will be publishing his first comedy novel - "Chips and Wandering Minds."
