Welcome to the Darkside...

...join me, Akasha Savage, as I brave the deepest dungeons and scale the misty mountains to achieve my dream: to see my novel Bathory in print. I will take you by the hand and keep you beside me as I cross this uncharted territory...

...let us step into the moonlit darkness together...

Happy 2011 xx

Looking back over the past twelve months the highlight of my year has to be meeting Johnny Depp at Greenwich (Did I mention that?...he spoke to me and held my hand!...ahhh sigh).

But already the year ahead is looking good.

My daughter - with a bit of luck and a fair wind - will be starting drama school in September 2011, her first step along the long winding uphill climb towards her acting career. She has her first audition on 7 January, this is to try for a place at one of the country's leading drama schools: Guildhall. I wish her well.

My son & daughter-in-law are expecting the birth of my first grandchild (it's a boy!) in March. I am so excited. Not long to go now...

And my book...ah yes my book...this year I MUST finish it...


  1. Sounds like some exciting things on the horizon. Luck to everyone.

  2. Johnny Depp? Ahhhhhhh... ;-)

    Good luck with all, Akasha. And have a lovely new year!!!


  3. Have a wonderful New Year! Good luck with your writing.

  4. The year sounds like its off to a good start. Does this mean that after March we'll have to call you Nana?

  5. Very good luck on acting and baby fronts (being a grandparent is much, much more fun than I ever expected it to be!).

    Oh, and please don't go for Nana. It sounds much too much like a goat.

  6. Happy New Year! Best of luck to everyone!

  7. You *will* finish it this year! :-)
