Quick news flash: Secret Stations, the television series inspired by my book Tiny Stations, starts on Channel 4 on Sunday 1st May at 8pm. It’s presented by Paul Merton and I’m in the first episode, talking to Paul (hey, we’re on first name terms, obvs, and I can report that he was charming, generous and funny) about Schrödinger’s Cat, unless that bit got cut, in which case it’s mainly about railway request stops.
In other news, my next book, Tiny Churches, comes out in October and will no doubt be hitting your screens in televisual form in 2017. Basically, I’m keeping Paul Merton in work.
Right, on with the usual website. I expect I talk about At Night next. Anyone remember that?
Hello and thank you for coming. This is the website where I have some things about me. If you’re looking for any other Dixe Wills, you’ve come to the wrong parallel universe.
The chances are you’re here because you’ve heard about my latest book, At Night, which was published on 21st June and whose sleeve, when stretched out rather than wrapped around a book, looks somewhat like this:
Please buy it (the whole book – don’t just buy the sleeve), preferably from a real shop. Not only will this enrich your life (the buying from the shop and the subsequent reading of the book) but it will enrich mine as well, though almost certainly not by as much as you think. If I sell enough copies, my dream is to open up a lint shop. Nobody has anywhere to go to buy lint at the moment, which is why they have to manufacture it themselves at home. I have spotted a gap in the market and I aim to exploit it with some ruthlessness. Help make my dream a reality.
If you’re here for 2014’s runaway success, Tiny Stations, then you’ve also come to the right place. You’ll be beyond thrilled to learn that it’s being made into a Channel 4 series called Secret Stations. It’s being presented by Paul Merton (who turns out to be lovely in real life, as you might expect) and features an all too brief appearance from self. It’s due to be broadcast sometime in the spring of 2016 and is already being tipped* to sweep the BAFTAs.
Get yourself ahead of the media frenzy by scoring a copy here if (it’s a fiver off and cheaper than those tax-avoiding slave-drivers at Amazon).
If you’re looking for my other books with the word tiny in them, you need do nothing more than click the tabs above. For news on previous books: The Z-Z of Great Britain, Places to Hide, New World Order/Wills Weltordnung or The Armchair Naturalist (soon to be available in simplified character Chinese too, if you’re a fan of that sort of thing), you’ll have to consult the rest of the internet, to which I have outsourced such things.
Fans of my tiny series will doubtless be beside themselves with joy at the news that there is to be a new addition in 2016, whose title I shall announce to a frankly undeserving world later this year.
