Coming Soon...





O dear and patient people...

I am sure, by now, that I have set the world record for the longest 'Coming Soon' website in web history.  Should you pop on over to www.iainmccaig.com, you will find that it is still almost ready, a phenomenon  that must be driving visitors almost as crazy as it is driving me (but not nearly as much as it is tormenting my saintly webmistress).  

I know this is where I should reveal the amazing secret behind the delay, but honestly, it's just because I keep choosing to do other things, like write a book, or design a movie, or play with my family (but not because of watching the TV--I got rid of that timesucker years ago).  

So, yes, Virginia, there will be a website.  I'm currently heading up the design team on the film version of  'John Carter of Mars'--fourth time lucky--so time is once again as scarce as Dejah Thoris' costume.   www.iainmccaig.com was meant to launch earlier this month when my book, 'SHADOWLINE', hit the bookstores, but deadlines have descended and I am locked in battle with tharks and other Martian beings.  That was when I remembered this Blog, kindly created for me by my old friend, J. J., and found it to be a rather pleasant place to stop by and witter on for a bit.  

So there--it's not a website, but it's something, and when I hit the post button, it will actually go live, tonight, now.  I'll try to drop by share what I can, as often as I can, and even answer some of the email that has been piling up since this blog stumbled onto the stage, thinking the theater was empty.  

And if I ever vanish, and you wonder where I've gone, well, that's why I wrote 'Shadowline'.   It's the best way I know to bring you along with me.

Cheers!

I

Glad to see you finding small snippets of time again! I've been checking back on this blog for so long it seems like an archaeological dig!

Ah, fantastic to see you found time to share some of your wisdom here.
I've been an admirer of your work for many a year now and do keep checking your website. Thanks again for posting.
By the way i got rid of the timesucker as well.
All the Best.

Absolutely fell in love with the drawing of space mermaids you created for the gnomon dvd! Particularly the one with the ship being led astray by the mermaids in the moonlight. Captivated me to the point where I'd love to buy a print of it if possible! You have inspired me to pursue a more creative life and profession.

Many thanks!
