Not too long ago, I told you all about a new project that I'd contracted -- a historical fantasy series that I'll be writing under a pseudonym. Well, after a summer of relative quiet, things are hopping here in my little writing world. I've just taken on yet another project. I'm going to be writing the novelization for the new Ridley Scott/Russell Crowe/Cate Blanchett "Robin Hood" movie that is coming out in May 2010. It's an exciting opportunity and a rather cool project. It's also a chance to publish something new under my real name. Thing is, it's on a pretty tight time-line. I have to write the book in about five weeks, so I might not be posting too much between now and mid-January.

Wish me luck...

Thanks, Alis. Yeah. Feeling a bit intimidated by the deadline.

And yes, I love Cate Blanchett, too. Just saw Benjamin Button, and loved her in it. I've neve seen her give a bad performance. And I think that her performance in the first Elizabeth movie was the best I've ever seen by anyone.

Good luck, David. That's really cool. Gonna sneak in a new character? The Merry Men's cook, glasses, beard, knows all about history, the 'real' hero of the story??? :)

Look forward to it.

Many thanks, Alan. I didn't do much -- mostly lucked into it. But I'll take it.
