It’s been four years since I first considered writing a book, and two years since I actually started researching it, but today saw my first tome, Seeking Perfection: The Unofficial Guide to Tremors, hit online stores.
Following the publication of my first feature in the UK’s SFX magazine back in 2011, I decided that there was more to say on the 1990 horror/sci-fi/comedy/western film, Tremors, and I mulled over the idea of turning 1200 words into 90,000.
Now, after carrying out around 55 interviews, spending 100s of hours researching, writing and editing it (and travelling to Los Angeles for a screening of the film), I’ve finally unleashed the book into the world.
It’s been a steep learning curve – who knew there was so much editing required when you’re writing about five films and TV series? – but it’s been great fun and I’ve met some amazing people along the way.
The book is on sale on Amazon in paperback and Kindle, as well as various other stores, with brick and mortar shops soon able to stock it – full details are over on the book’s website.
I’ll be doing some proper promotion in the coming months ahead of the release of Tremors 5: Bloodlines in October 2015, and I’m open to interviews should anyone wish to get in touch.
