    Well my new book is about this young man (Jojo), who finds himself caught by a honey trap operation set up by the 5.0 and in desperation, under the spotlight, forced to confess his crimes.

    The book is part autobiography, part science fiction. His best friend is another young man, a couple of years older than him, called Ren. Although he hasn't made anything more than a cameo appearance so far.

    There is a chapter on sleep, how when I fell in to a coma after my road traffic accident, I never fully woke up. A chapter on chess, a chapter on computer games... and more than one reference to the numerous hospitals, he has lived in, over the years.

    I talk about how eventually, they used to cook him Michelin gourmet food. And how at night, when all of the other patients had gone to bed, he was sometimes allowed to take charge, and sit at the nurses station!

    That part is true at least.

    I find it hard to completely encapsulate the whole book, in the space of a few paragraphs. But come back to me in six/twelve months, when I should have in finished, and I will be sure to post you a copy?

    (Then you can post an unbiased review for the TMMAC martial art book club).

    Does that sound like a good plan? I want @Splinty@Splinty to do a review as well!

    I will, if you promise to read it cover to cover, and not just the first two lines, like @conor mcgregor nut hugger@conor mcgregor nut hugger ! ?

    I'm also happy to share my scripts with anyone who wants to read.

    I gave up a long time ago trying to get people to read a whole script, not a reasonable favor to expect from busy folk. But always happy to share if someone actually wants to sit down for a couple hours and read it. A good screenplay should read about the same pace as a real movie. Should take 90-100 minutes to get through.

    I don't know but @Galt@Galt should be.

    He has a cameo in my conspiracy book :D

    Anyone at the MMAC who writes stuff should put a Galt cameo somewhere. This should be a rule.

    I'm useless reading scripts, they're painful.

    Sorry, I haven't put anyone from here, in it yet! (Well maybe @Splinty@Splinty and @Shang Tsong2@Shang Tsong2 , but they reached out to me, when the rest of the site had ditched me, so i think they deserve a shout out)?
