Interview with the Vampire

...or, more precisely, your blog co-host.

Anyone who's read The Dog of the North might be interested in this fairly lengthy Q&A with 'Dark Wolf' over at his eponymous blog.

Very interesting interview, thanks for posting!

How very sane you sound, Tim. Nobody would suspect the truth.

Something more to read! I'm currently half-watching the Man Utd game with a mixture of amusement and excitement, so I'll read the interview later (without distractions!).
Still it's all good stuff - and great build up for the paperback launch (with a cover that good, you know I might just buy Dog of the North again in paperback)...

Aliya, I can keep it together for half an hour at a time...

Matt, the only thing in life better than seeing Man Utd concede a last-minute equaliser is seeing them concede a last-minute winner. Maybe that's for the second leg.

Great interview, Tim.

Interesting that you also take long walks to work out plots (and car journeys in my case).

It looks as though most of MNW was cheering for Porto last night then?

What is this 'football' of which you speak? I suppose rugby is a sore point at the moment for any non-Irish.

Great interview, Tim. Good luck with the pb launch...

Being not a rugby fan, I'm spared the humiliation of following a rubbish national team.

I follow football instead.

In other words, I am regularly embarrassed by both a national side and a club side (Crewe Alexandra).
It does mean I can chuckle whenever Man Utd or Chelsea get beaten, though (because there is no way in the world Crewe Alex will achieve those lofty heights – hell, I’d be happy if they only returned to the Championship…)

PS: Brian, I’m half-Irish, so if I was a rugby fan, I too would be very pleased!!

PPS: Tim, great interview by the way. If it’s any consolation about the reviews for the hardback of The Dog of the North, it’s that the paperback should be reviewed much more widely on the internet and you should get more coverage.

Great interview, Tim!

Football is fine, but I'm 100% for the love story angle.

Ditto from over here.

"Swords and Sonnets"? Oh, very cool.
