On the roof top…

As some of you may have noticed, there hasn’t been any real activity on BLOG ME DO for several months now. It’s all the fault of the Starship Enterprise and a bunch of talking vehicles.

At the end of last year I landed a contract to write a book about the forty year history of Star Trek in comic books It turned out to be a much bigger project than we originally thought and gradually used up more and more of my available writing time. As I was working on it other writing opportunities also opened up and my schedule started to look a little crowded, as I also have a day job, and a family, things began to fall off my schedule.

My philosophy with any blog I write, and this one in particular, was that I always wanted to put the best time and effort into researching each post. If I didn’t have time to do it properly, then I would rather not post at all.

A few weeks ago we finished the Star Trek book and it was packed off to the printers. In the following few days I took a step back and looked at my commitments for the next few months. I had a lot of them, including a couple more book projects that will run well into 2010.

It was with a sense of sadness I came to the realization that it was time to move on from BLOG ME DO. I’ve had a fun three years here, and I hope that you have enjoyed the content I’ve provided. Thanks to this blog I’ve meet many other Beatles fans, attended a couple of Beatles conventions, and even reconnected with a couple of old friends.

But while I’m leaving BLOG ME DO, I’m not entirely leaving the world of the Beatles behind, as I have a couple of Beatles related book projects I am shopping around to a selection of publishers.

The talking vehicles I mentioned earlier? Well one of the writing commitments is that I am now the regular writer on the Disney*Pixar “The World of CARS” comic book series, published by BOOM! Studios.

Thanks again for reading, – I hope I passed the audition.
