Busy Busy

Recently got made redundant at my 8 year long IT job, but can’t say that I left on bad terms at all. I’m going to miss the guys there, but to be perfectly honest, it was time to move on as I was far too comfortable there and that comfort had made me lazy.

I was lucky enough, however, to find a job the very next day after being told about my redundancy. Had done a few freelance coding jobs in the past for Aleister’s company Angel London and they’ve recently decided they’d prefer to have an in-house coder. Got the job and started there the day after I left the old one.

It’s a cool position, as I’m left to my own devices as it’s project based. Which means there are constant deadlines that have to be met, so I don’t get much free time and I’m coding non-stop from 9am till 6pm when I leave and have even needed to keep going during the weekends. But I’ve really been enjoying it so far! It gives me such a great feeling of accomplishment.

In other news, got a few more reviews for Talking To Strangers. Here ya go -

These stories are gobsmacking in a few ways: they’re consistently good, which is very rare in anthologies, especially comics anthologies for some reason; they span a wide range of tones, styles, genres and themes; and they are, for want of a better word, chewy. – Katherine Farmar, Writers of Color 50 Book Challenge

Overall, Talking to Strangers is a book of creative promise. I’m sure it says something about the interconnected importance of story and art that the two best narratives, “Static” and “Flowers,” have the top art. With both elements working together, the two stories stand out. When the art does not support the writing, the elements are left slightly askew, disjointed, leaving four shorts that offer glimmers of wit and humanity. With all that said, for fans of dark fantasy, I suspect that Talking to Strangers will have something to please you. – Michael C. Lorah, Newsarama

And here’s a shout-out from our very own Emma Vieceli when she read the book -

Have you guys checked out ‘Talking to Strangers‘ from Sweatdrop yet? I don’t think I mentioned it here yet… good god it’s bloody gorgeous. Seriously impressive writing over several varying topics and moods…and the art is just breathtaking throughout. ‘Flowers’ especially (Faye Yong) just blew me away. It is an example of perfect, flawless comicking. The pacing, the layouts, the lovingly handled characters and dialogue. Fehed and Faye have made something very special with it. But yes, the whole book is just edible. – Emma Vieceli
