Turtle bites and captured photons

No, I’m not dead. I would probably smell much worse than I do now if I was. And yes, I know it has been more than a year since I last posted something here, but even though I have been very, very busy, most of my output has been in swedish. But, I have actually been involved in some stuff that could be of interest to people outside of Sweden as well.

For one thing, I’m the proud co-owner and one of the driving forces behind the digital publishing house Turtle Bite Books. We started this endeavour in the fall of 2012, and have so far published more than 15 ebooks. A couple of them are mine. Mainly collections of satire, columns and various funny stuff. Right now I’m working on my first novel (or is it a novella? I’m not sure yet. The story is gradually telling me what it wants to be). But there are also several books in english (and other languages) from our other authors. For example these lovely children’s books:

Babys_First_Book   Baby_Meets_the_Animals   A_Day_with_Sister-and-Brother

And this one that I’m very proud to have edited/published – Jenny Holmlund’s amazing Reasons Not to Diet:


Tired of all the hype, obsession and strict rules around our weight? Do you begin to suspect that dieting is just as effective for reaching your dream weight, as it is to get rich quick by wishing upon a star? Do you think that beauty is an attitude, and not what the scale says? In this handy book, you get the fifty best reasons not to diet. And it’s filled with beautiful illustrations that pay homage to people with curves and sass!

Please check them out. They are really good. (Click bookcovers for where to buy)

When I’m not stuck at my desk writing away on my next book, I’m probably running around with my camera looking for something to capture. It’s just something that I need to do every now and then to get away from the words. You can find my work on Flickr, deviantART and my photoblog Certain Slants of Light. Here’s some of my work:

Time Will Not Remain   That Time of the Year II

Erised   From sorrow to serenity

It's a somber stroll down this road that we call life

And then there’s my little side project Pesterlings – Everyday Fairies. As you may know there have always been mystical creatures in mythology and folklore known for making things disappear, to sour milk and generally causing mischief when their needs and habits collide with the human world. But did you know that they’re still around, interfering with our daily life? Like the Tangle Touslers that tangle headphone cords.

Now I need to get back to my desk and finish my next book, get it translated and get it out there for your reading pleasure. I’ll keep you updated!
