The long dead road – or why screenwriters should be novelizing

 Long-Dead-Road-banner-newsletter

This month sees yet another new novel by Andy Conway, and a major change of direction following the Touchstone saga (don’t worry, Touchstone fans – the next Touchstone novel is a stunner and is coming very soon).

But this time I’ve teamed up with action novelist Jack Turner to deliver a gritty revenge thriller, LONG DEAD ROAD.

The book came about through an unusual process. And it owes its existence to up and coming film producer Richard Adams.

I met Richard on the set of my first feature film as screenwriter, revenge thriller Arjun & Alison, and we got on well. I get on well with anyone who says he likes my screenplay. I especially get on well with anyone who seeks me out a couple of years later when he’s putting together his first slate of film projects and asks me if I want to write one.

Richard had an idea about a man who comes out of prison and takes revenge on the gang who put him inside…

A few drafts later and I had the idea of turning it into a novel. And I think this is what every screenwriter should be doing right now. Continue reading

The saga concludes. Touchstone Season 1 reaches the grand finale

My time travel saga, Touchstone, has finally concluded with the release today of Touchstone (6. Fade to Grey), but while it’s the end of Rachel’s story, it’s not the end of Touchstone.

Touchstone-part-6---facebook-500When I first started novelising Touchstone, back in 2011, I adapted it from a couple of TV spec scripts I’d written. I had these ideas for a teenage time travel TV drama series, but unfortunately it was just about the most expensive idea anyone had ever come up with.

A big budget time travel drama series, you say? A different era every episode, you say? We’ll get back to you.

So in light of the TV world’s indifference, it made much more sense to pursue it as a series of novels. And over the last three years, as the story of Rachel Hines’s quest to get her life back has progressed, it has somehow hit a chord with readers. Continue reading
