"Hi, my name's Jon."
"And I'm a media tie-in writer."
Polite round of applause.
So, the secret's out. I'm sure many of you were already aware that I had a media tie-in habit - what with all my Warhammer and Warhammer 40K books, not to mention the comic strips I've written for TMNT, and then there's my Doctor Who stuff - but I've finally come clean and admitted it.
And to help me with my addiction I've joined a support group, the IAMTW, otherwise known as the International Association of Media Tie-in Writers.
You can find out more about the IAMTW here. And you can blame Nathan Long's intervention for my joining.
