In around a months time I should be able to hold a copy of my debut collection of short fiction, Looking Out of Broken Windows, in my grubby little hands. I am currently proofing the latest version of the manuscript, tracking down the final few errors before the book goes to print and thought now would be a good time to share the teaser trailer for the book.

I have made a whole series of trailers, some with excerpted readings, some with whole pieces of flash fiction and one very special one is made up from some rather excellent comic book cover art knocked together by a bunch of my artist mates from back in my small press comic scripting days. But more on those trailers later. Right now, sit back, relax and enjoy (for the next 55 seconds at least) being teased:


My heartfelt thanks to Nuala, Nik and Caroline for their wonderful blurb quotes, and to Andy Othling of Lowercase Noises for generously allowing me to use his music as a soundtrack for this trailer.
