The Calm Before the Digital Storm: The Ordinariness of My Life


Hi Everyone

How are you today?

I’m feeling calm this morning.

Calmer than I have in a while.

I have a full day’s teaching and preparation.

This the ordinariness of my life.

And I’m not complaining.

One of the greatest pleasures in my life is the opportunity to stand in front of a class and get carried away talking about something I love.

To do this every day is a real privilege.

Especially considering that my major topics of classroom conversation are all film-related.

What’s not to like about being paid to talk about films all day?

And think about films?

And collaborate in their making?

And make them yourself?


But if this wasn’t already enough I then have the chance to go home and keep working on the imminent release of the first two novels in the VIRO series.

I am at the final editing stage.

I’m nearly there.

I’m also playing with cover designs.

What do you think?


VIRO test cover 2 JAN 2018

It just gets better and better.

I hope your day goes really well.

Let me know what you are up to.

I can’t wait to hear from you.

Inspired by his passion for films and video games, Barnaby Taylor loves writing dystopian science fiction and horror. He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at You can also find him on Twitter @BarnabyFTaylor.
