As some of you may have noticed, despite the 2009 racing season being well under way there hasn’t been any real activity on THE SPEED BLOG for several months now. It’s all the fault of the Starship Enterprise and a bunch of talking vehicles.
At the end of last year I landed a contract to write a book about the forty year history of Star Trek in comic books It turned out to be a much bigger project than we originally thought and gradually used up more and more of my available writing time. As I was working on it other writing opportunities also opened up and my schedule started to look a little crowded, so I tried an altrenative appraoch, like a Twitter account, but that too quickly fell victim to the fact that there are only 24 hours in the day and I also have a day job and a family.
A few weeks ago we finished the Star Trek book and it was packed off to the printers. In the following few days I took a step back and looked at my commitments for the next few months. I had a lot of them, including a couple more book projects that will run into 2010.
It was with a sense of sadness I came to the realization that it was time to move on from THE SPEED BLOG. I’ve had a fun three years here, and I hope that you have enjoyed the content I’ve provided.
But while I’m leaving THE SPEED BLOG, I’m not entirely leaving the world of motor sports behind. The talking vehicles I mentioned earlier? Well one of the writing commitments is that I am now the regular writer on the Disney*Pixar “The World of CARS” comic book series, published by BOOM! Studios.
Thanks again for reading, – see you at the track!
