Less Than Zero. From Amazon : " Set in Los Angeles in the early s, this coolly mesmerizing novel is a raw, powerful portrait of a lost generation who have experienced sex, drugs and disaffection at too early an age, in a world shaped by casual nihilism, passivity, and too much money a place devoid of feeling or hope. High Fidelity.

From Amazon : " Rob is a pop music junkie who runs his own semi-failing record store. His girlfriend, Laura, has just left him for the guy upstairs, and Rob is both miserable and relieved. After all, could he have spent his life with someone who has a bad record collection? Then he sees Laura again.

And Rob begins to think that life with kids, marriage, barbecues and soft rock CDs might not be so bad. The Rider. Most of all, it is a meditation on love -- love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation. Into the Wild. From Amazon : "In April , a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt.

His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a moose hunter. Franzen has produced an indelible and deeply moving portrait of our time.

Modern Romance. So why are so many people frustrated? Brave New World. From Amazon : "Aldous Huxley's tour de force, Brave New World is a darkly satiric vision of a "utopian" future -- where humans are genetically bred and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively serve a ruling order. A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations, it remains remarkably relevant to this day as both a warning to be heeded as we head into tomorrow and as thought-provoking, satisfying entertainment.

A People's History of the United States. One Hundred Years of Solitude. It is a rich and brilliant chronicle of life and death, and the tragicomedy of humankind. From Amazon : "Published in as a warning about the menaces of totalitarianism. The novel is set in an imaginary future world that is dominated by three perpetually warring totalitarian police states. Normally these recordings are just for me. I listen to them and then change words, names, re-write paragraphs, throw whole sections out and occasionally cringe at what I've written. I've decided to release the first chapter, the finished book will undoubtedly be different to what you hear, but hopefully….

Nothing new, I go through a crisis with just about every book I write at some point but this one has been a doozie. A story set in a possible future where London is a city state seperate from the rest of the country.

Preposterous fantasy, it'll never happen I wanted the human race to have moved on from our present day anxieties, in years we will be mere history, fascinating but not immediately impactful. This book, more than any other I have written through Unbound, is developing as I write it.

That's not really surprising, it's just what happens, however on re-reading the synopsys on the launch page, it's getting a bit embarrassing. With all three previous books I'd either written most of it by the time Unbound started News from Gardenia or had a very clear idea where it was going before we…. It's called teething trouble. There will be a difference between the two pledge levels soon, promise. Hello Robert, I enjoyed the Gavin Meckler books, as this story is also set in the future, will it be part of a trilogy or is this a one off?

This is a one off, not a continuation of the 'News' trilogy.

I regularly wish I could come up with a long running sword and gore series like 'Game of Thrones' but I have accepted that just isn't me. This will be a stand alone story I think. Sounds intriguing! My wife and I were just saying the other day that we would love to plump for the "lunch with the author" option on your next book Did they not go well? They went very well but they were very difficult to arrange. Dozens of emails and phone calls and diary clashes, it took months to sort out each one. The actual events were fun but it was deemed too time consuming and difficult. Shame, we had some nice lunch In the London Olympics Yorkshire gained seven gold medals, two silver and three bronzes, placing it twelfth in the medal table if regarded as an independent country.

Yet is the County with more acres in it than letters in The Bible 3,, acres -3,, letters even mentioned in your book as even existing in your future world? I hope so. Martin Alexander Bradford. Hi Martin, I'm very happy to hear that and yes, I will now further balkanise the country to include a slightly extended Yorkshire as another independent, proud and successful country.

Many thanks Robert. Hi Robert I was wondering if there is any correlation between amount funded and amount completed? Is the book being completed at roughly the same rate as the funds are coming in? Does the writing come in spurts rather than being steady slow beginning and end with a steady middle? Here's hoping that its all going to schedule and we get the finished book soon would be better if you didn't have to answer such banal questions as mine of course..

Regards for now and the future Andy. Hi Andy, That's a great question, never been asked that before. I don't think there's any correlation between funding level and word count. I know I'm approaching half way through the book so the funding is slightly ahead. I put days aside for writing long in advance, then I discover the car has a puncture or the dog has a limp and other stuff happens, but I'm getting there.

In the meantime, many thanks for your support Robert.

Some Old Bloke by Robert Llewellyn: Unbound

Hi Robert, How do you go about recording the audio books? Do you do the reading all at one time, or spread it out? What preparation do you do before a reading? Hi James, Sorry, meant to reply sooner but things happened, as they do.

Jokes for blokes, fair dinkum funnies and true blue Aussie wisdom

The final audiobook is usually recorded in one long session, but all the way through the writing process I use audio recordings to edit, polish and re-write. Listening to myself reading the book is always an unpleasant experience as the mistakes, repeated phrases or badly constructed sentences jump out and punch you in the ear.

Those audio files are deleted, no one wants to hear me struggling and swearing as I read through the first draft of each chapter. The only preparation I do before reading the final book is load it onto an iPad no page turning noise and have a cup of herbal tea. I've read many dozens of audiobooks for the BBC so it's something I've been doing for years. Hi Robert. Just wondering what's happening with your book?

Is it still going ahead? Thanks, Phil. Hi Phil, I'm currently finalising the re-launch, slightly delayed as I'm presently working in Australia. There will be a big update coming very soon which will explain everything.

There was an Old Bloke who Swallowed a Chook

Have you ever published an anthology of short stories? Also, will you still be offering the opportunity to name a character in return for a donation? If so, the name is "Megan" and I would like to be a bad guy. Thank you for all your great work and inspiring perseverance. I hope to one day be able to say I've written as many books as you have. Sincerely, Megan evil stare.

HI Megan, Scarey evil stare! I hadn't considered doing the name a character thing for the new book, basically it's all changed so much I'm not sure what to do about that. I'll consult the genius folk at Unbound, they always have a solution for such things and will get back to you. Australian Centre for the Moving Image.
