I know, it’s not why you’re here, but I need this to keep everything else fresh.
Writing fantasy is also a tonne of fun. 🙂
The first apartment we rented on our return to Denmark was, mildly put, horrible. Never mind that it stank of cigarette smoke (how is it Greenlanders smoke outside the house in temperatures in the minus 40s but Danes don’t leave the house when lighting up? Sweeping generalisation… but…) it was tiny, poorly heated, and in the middle of a farming area. I didn’t mind the farming, but a quick look at Google maps revealed we were surrounded by three massive silage tanks. Hence the flies in the summer!
Of course, being slightly ingenious and making the most of a shitty situation, we employed flycatchers!
The battle lines were drawn!
Me being me, I knew there was a story here, and, several years later, Plantlife happened.
Algorithms! That’s my excuse, and I’m sticking with it! Alternatively, I could just confess and say I love fantasy books. I simply can’t write crime and thriller books all the time. I need to shake it up a little, and what better way to do that than to write in a completely different genre. Yes, I’ve done this a lot, but this time I’m planting my literary feet right in the middle of the world of mythical beasts and creatures. I’m doing so with another Welsh pen name to further embrace the Welsh blood in my veins. Oh, and to confound the algorithms!
As an aside, it’s curious… I’ve never done well at maths and it haunts me. Whoever thought algorithms were a good idea, never thought to ask. Just saying!
Anyway, revealing Iago Jones and his books in this post, will also reveal a few more stories that I have written, published, and hidden from the world – not intentionally. Well, actually, maybe intentionally. However, here they are with links to:
If you’re here for the Greenland crime and thrillers because you read crime and thriller books, then let’s just agree that these stories probably aren’t for you. 😉
