I have been working for some time on a project called the Feeding Jasmine Valentine project that brings all the strands of my creative work together. This project will encompass at least three components of work:
1) A fantasy novel series – I have completed a first draft of the first novel (called Feeding Jasmine Valentine) in the series, and am now editing. Here is the pitch:
2) Videos in which I will take a camera out into bits of London to talk about ideas I’ve had for the novel and how they relate to different places. These will probably take the form of me out and about on foot, with my baby in a pram, because that’s the only way I get anything done at the moment. Probably hosted on vimeo/youtube.
3) A documentary film about the nature of heart break/ people’s experiences of heartbreak, which picks up on a thread of ideas from the novel.
4) Other possible ideas – meet ups or events that are based things that happen in the novel, a screening of the documentary, other ideas welcome.
If you would like to support this work please visit my Patreon page here. I plan to use any money earned here in support of this project to work with editors/other creative professionals to improve the quality of my work and build an effective platform from which to launch the project.
