Moving On

The Scottish filming is done, and cast and crew are packing up today for the big move to Belfast and its Paint Hall, where the shoot will resume. So far, so good.

Parris and I are moving on as well. She'll be headed over to Ireland tomorrow to spend Samhaim with friends, while I linger here in Scotland a few more days to visit with Lisa Tuttle. We converge again in Belfast in November. Today we swung by the HarperCollins warehouse outside Glasgow, where I signed five hundred hardcovers of SONGS OF THE DYING EARTH. Ask for one at your favorite UK bookstore, they will be going all over the country.

Things are shaping up for the signing at Eason's in Belfast. Last night after the filming wrapped we stayed up late drinking with the cast, and I think we convinced a number of them to join us at Eason's. Should be a hoot and a half, assuming they don't come to their senses in the cold grey light of morning. I told them my readers were essentially harmless. Hah.

The cast is sensational, by the way.

"So far, so good."

Those words are music to our ears. Have a good time in Scotland and Ireland. :)

Damn, I just left Scotland yesterday to return to Canada. Wish I'd known you were shooting in the area, I would have tried to hunt you down to buy you a dram :D

Should you begin this relationship by lying to them like that? ;)

I'm absolutely gutted that I can't make the Belfast meet - any other the day of the year and I'd be there, but the fact is its my son Bran's 9th nameday on the 3rd November - the irony is killing me George!!

Personally I am hoping that by the time the pilot is done, HBO will have an online option :)

We're harmless alright. Kind and loving and a bit hysterical. Give them all our warmest hugs etc, I'm dying to get a glimpse of what this looks like!

I so wanted to fly over for this!
Was sad when the Pizza crawl in New Haven was cancelled a few years ago.

"The Scottish filming is done". I love reading this. To hear that shots have been completed just cements the fact that I'm not dreaming and the project is actually going to go through. So very excited and happy for you and everyone involved.

McHughs too? Or is that our job to persuade them that we're actually semi-normal?

We'll be good, I promise!!

SO looking forward to it!

I can only imagine what it must feel like to watch your words and characters literally come alive.
