One small step...

Updated: Aug 29, 2022

Welcome to my first blog post.

I've wanted to write a blog for a while now, but because I've been slaving away at Lightbulb Moments in Human History for the last two years, blogging seemed a little...let's say, frivolous.

Nevertheless, here we are.

The publication date for Lightbulb Moments in Human History: From Cave to Colosseum is looming large: February 24, 2023. It seemed like a long way away when the book was first accepted for publication, but the more I think about it, the more I see the necessity for the long lead time.

That's because, as this is my first book, I was totally unaware of all the rigmarole that goes along with publication. There's a lot of stuff happening behind the scenes, between the publishers and the distributors. Then there's all the promotion and building an online presence: I've created a TikTok site (@lightbulbmomentshistory), a YouTube channel, and produced content for both.

I've also continued with Twitter (@somewhathistory) and have begun appearing on podcasts, although the early ones have been a little embarrassing (being interviewed by a guy in a banana costume was a low-light). And god knows, my friend CJ and I are now creating a podcast, but that hasn't seen the light of day yet.

Then there's the Redbubble store, where I've added some designs based on art from Lightbulb Moments in Human History: From Cave to Colosseum.

Of course, while all this has been happening, I've been working on the follow-up book, working title: Lightbulb Moments in Human History: From Peasants to Periwigs. AND somehow managing to work a demanding day-job.

2022 had been an interesting year so far, and that's not even counting the glandular fever and COVID!

I'm planning to keep up with the blogging, but seriously, who knows?
