AK Silversmith is live

Starting a blog feels a bit like buying a derelict house, with the view to turning it into a dream home, and then pitching up on day one and realising you’ve never even used a screwdriver.

Where on earth do you start?

“Begin at the beginning,” the King said, very gravely, “and go on till you come to the end: then stop.” Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland.

If you’ve read The Old Man at the End of the World, you’ll be acquainted with Gerald Stockwell-Poulter, my 87-year old technophobe gentleman protagonist who finds himself in a slightly sticky zombie situation while earthing up leeks at his West Sussex allotment on a sunny Tuesday morning. Gerald would be appalled to find that his creator had a blog and a twitter account (sorry Gerald, but this is the world we now live in) but he also applauds anyone who has a crack, and so I’m going to do just that.

For anyone who has landed here wondering how to get their blog up and running, I have posted a few links on the topic from those in the know for you below. For those who are looking for zombie news, articles about indie publishing or even a few thoughts about allotmenting, you’ve come to the right place. And for anyone who has come to this site seeking more Gerald-related zombie tales (and some other TEOTWAWKI stories), please be assured,more will follow.
