The latest news is that I’ll be back on stage at Daneside Theatre for Congleton Player’s adaptation of the classic 1953 film ‘The Titfield Thunderbolt.
The Titfield Thunderbolt revolves around a group of villagers who rally together to save their local branch line from closure; volunteering to run it themselves. As they struggle to prove themselves competent in running the line, the volunteers must also face competition from notorious rivals and their bus service.
Rehearsals for the stage-production of this classic film are proceeding very well. And as well as rehearsing my parts for the show in October, I’ve also been doing artwork for the promotional material.
Tickets for this show are available NOW from Congleton Tourist Information (01260 271095) and online via Facebook, TicketSource and congletonplayers.com
Get your tickets NOW! It promises to be a fun show that’s worthy of the original film. See you on 2nd-6th October 2018!
Anything else? I’ve uploaded some more of My Artwork. Check it out, and know that more progress has been made on The Saviour’s rewrite. I’m on the last chapter now, and am so very nearly there! Then will come the read-through of both The Saviour and The Saviour & Hi-Jax, and hopefully getting the books published! Stay tuned!
Wow…it’s been over two years since I last updated this website…
First and foremost, I am sorry for neglecting The Writings of Saviours with any proper updates. Due to work, rewriting The Saviour and The Saviour & Hi-Jax, joining the Congleton Players, numerous personal problems and health issues over the last few years, my own website has been forgotten about.
For latest news and developments, check out my Official Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/dcwoodauthor/). With regards to changes to this website, obsolete pages & links have been removed…and new things have been added.
NEW ARTWORK (check out My Artwork).
NEW POEMS (check out My Poems).
NEW PAGE (check out The Theatre!).
Updated links and information (check out Links and Who is D.C. Wood?)
Artemis Publishing have sadly gone out of business, so copies of The Saviour are now somewhat limited. As I’ve said, I’m currently in the midst of rewriting the book and its sequel (The Saviour & Hi-Jax) and am NEARING COMPLETION. Once finished, I’m going to be searching for a new publisher/agent to try and get my writing back on track.
Thank you all for your patience & continued support. It means everything to me.
Feels weird saying that in February…hope you all had a great Christmas and all the best for 2016!
Anyway, my apologies for the late update, but there has been so much going on in my life recently. Namely work, writing, drawing, Mystery Project ‘A’…and acting.
First things first, my sincere thanks to everyone who supported me when Bear Spirit made the finals of the Parsec Awards for “Best Speculative Fiction Story: Small Cast (Novella & Long Form)”. Sadly, I didn’t triumph, but I will always be proud that my work made it THIS far and will forever have the distinction of being an official Parsec Awards finalist. Congratulations to Paul E Cooley on his victory with The Black: Arrival, and well done to all my fellow finalists and entrants in their respective categories. Check out The Black: Arrival at the link below!
Also, throughout 2015 I was working on something called ‘Mystery Project A’ which I have long since revealed as My Top 10 Wrestling Shows. Being a wrestling fan, I wanted to share with others my thoughts and feelings on what major events best sum up the greatness of wrestling. Check it out here!
I am also proud to announce my joining of Congleton Players! I have always loved the local theatre group for the amazing productions that they put in, and I’ve always fancied trying my hand at acting. Having joined the group at long last, I successfully auditioned for the role of the Reverend Parris in the Players’ recent adaptation of Arthur Miller’s masterpiece ‘The Crucible’ and we completed the week-long production of that to great acclaim! Expect more details of that to follow soon! In the meantime, be sure to check out the Players’ website at http://www.congletonplayers.com/
And finally…progress is PICKING up on The Saviour & Hi-Jax! There are only SIX more chapters to complete! STAY TUNED! THE END IS WITHIN REACH!
See you again soon with more news, poems and artwork!
I apologize again for the late updates to this website. 2015 has been full of ups & downs, both creatively and personally. For those who haven’t known, Beartown Radio ceased broadcasting back in January, which subsequently meant no more Box of Stuff and an end to my radio career. For now, anyway…
My time on-air will be covered in the new ‘Radio’ page, and I’m filling in the gap with rewriting the next book ‘The Saviour & Hi-Jax’. The plan is to get the book finished by the end of June. So far, I’m making progress.
More artwork and poems are now available to browse, and I aim to update this website more regularly. I’ve got plans for 2015, and am working to see them come to fruition. For more news and regular updates, please visit my Official Facebook right here.
Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, and that you have a positive 2015!
I will start mine by saying…‘Hooray! My website is restored!’
It’s been a long time in the making but I’m pleased that my website is finally functioning again. I do apologise for leaving it in such a sorry state for so long, but much has changed over the last few years. Learning to drive, getting on radio, covering local events, work, becoming an uncle, and with several projects on the go, this website has had to be shunted to the backbench.
However, all is now more professional-looking again, and I’ll do my best to keep on top of it and avoid neglecting it again. I’m still on Facebook and YouTube (both of which you can check out under ‘Links’), so tune-in there for updates of ongoing projects, as well as my radio show ‘The Box of Stuff’, every Tuesday night on Beartown Radio at 7pm.
Writing-wise, my 2013 radio serial ‘Bear Spirit’ is released in podcast novel form courtesy of the great folks of Podiobooks.com! Check it out HERE at http://podiobooks.com/title/bear-spirit/. Also, I’m in the midst of re-writing ‘The Saviour & Hi-Jax’ – the long-awaited sequel to ‘The Saviour’ – for a 2015 release (that’s the plan, anyway), so plenty of stuff to expect in the foreseeable future.
