So this is kind of weird. Some of you might know me from the internet (some of you might even know me from real life, which is an odd thought); I’ve been hanging around for a while under various names and made a few good friends.
I’m Chris, obviously. Website’s got my name on it. (Which is very strange for me, but I think now’s about the time for doing that.) I do stuff with words: I’ve written a fair few things on the Internet about video games, and I’ve said some stuff out loud about games and philosophy too.
The main reason I’ve decided it’s time to branch out into being myself, insofar as anyone can be on the Internet, is because I also now want to start being someone who writes and releases fiction. I’ve been A Person Who Writes Fiction just about as long as I can remember, but never really put it out into the world, and I think it’s probably past time I just went ahead and did that.
As such, it’s very cool for me to announce that my first foray into the world of novelling will be Each Little Universe, a story I started writing around five years ago and now think I need to finally just throw out there. It’ll be available on Amazon as an ebook or paperback from April 30th, and I’ll be giving away some signed paperback copies around the time of launch too, so stay tuned here for that.
To find out more about Each Little Universe, you can visit this page on this very website; if you want to get in touch with me or support me to keep making more stuff, the contact and support pages might come in handy. As for staying up-to-date with info about, among other things, the launch of ELU and how you could win a free book (I mean, it’s gonna be pretty cheap anyway for five years of my life), you can do a few things:
- Follow me on Twitter
- Follow Chris Durston Does Words on Facebook
- Click either of the ‘follow’ buttons on the left-hand side of any page on this site (one’s for WordPress users to follow in the WordPress Reader, the other’s for email notifications – in either case you’ll be able to spot any new blog posts)
- Use the form below to sign up for emails from me, which might sometimes repeat information from the blog posts here but also might sometimes have interesting exclusive stuff! (No promises.)
And I think that’s about all I’ve got to say for now.
Thanks for coming, and I hope you’ll keep an eye out for Each Little Universe on April 30th.
