The Team Behind Mark Jackman
Zetta Brown: Jim’s boss (wife!) and the editor of The Great Right Hope series. She’s also an author and will kick my ass if my punctuation doesn’t improve,
Helen Madden: The artist behind The Great Right Hope series cover. She’s also an author and a hilarious blogger.
Ruth Powell: Last, but by no means least, Ruth Powell. She’s my beautiful, Welsh, PR mentor (yes, Welsh!). I’ve promised her that she can walk up the red carpet, with me, at The Great Right Hope film premiere, but I am hoping she is going to settle for a couple of pints and a curry (pickle tray not included).
Jacko’s Creative Buddies:
Jeremy Lewis Cope: Not just an artist, but a craftsman. Photos of his art really can’t do them justice. He is a self-confessed Showpony.
Nick Tate: Nick’s got some great sounds, but he’d call them “Radio friendly sugary acoustic niceness.”
Steve Weinberger: Steve wrote “No Air Guitars Allowed, a fantastically funny look at the life essence of a rock concert.
Silvercub Speaks: Patrick Currier is the Silvercub, a musician, an artist, a blogger, and an all-round talented sort of guy.
Cemetery Blues: A comic book series with dry British humour and classic horror? Yes, please.
Terror4Fun: “Aaarrrggghhh, I’m a zombie.” Classic Partridge. These guys don’t do “Shitty zombies.” They recently ran a competition where readers could win copies of The Great Right Hope.
Jude Stephens: Fellow horror writer with a different take on vampirism.
Ben Larken: Another horror writer who has had work published by LL-Publications. This guy has won awards for his title Pit Stop, but he has yet to include dogging in any work, and, really, can you say that you have written a decent horror story when you haven’t included a dogging scene. You probably can.
Ellen Dean: is madder than a box of frogs. My first ever book signing was a joint effort with Ellen in Gateshead. She was promoting her book Beautiful Strangers and we had a great time, and I’m grateful to her for giving me loads of advice on how to promote my own work.
More of Jacko’s Buddies
Dave Farmer is the man who taught the Jackhammer Kung Fu. Yeah! I owe this man, much, and he is the best teacher and mentor I have ever known. He didn’t just teach me a martial art, he taught me how to learn, and how to break things down to simple building blocks. He’s worked the oil rigs for nigh on twenty years and is now using his experiences to help businesses in their health and safety needs. I know he’ll be bloody brilliant at it too. http://www.aim-to-train.co.uk/
