I’m Lance Parkin, and it’s just been announced that I’ve got a new Doctor Who book coming out in late December this year.

What I hope to do here is … well, first and foremost, persuade you to buy my book, Doctor Who – The Eyeless. I might as well be upfront about that. Buy my book when it comes out on Boxing Day. Go on, go on, go on.

I also hope to shed some light on how I wrote this book. I know that the process of writing a book is something that fascinates people. I’m not claiming to be an expert, or that my way is the only way, or anything like that. What I’ll do is try to explain how I went about writing this Doctor Who book.

OK … my plan is to post at least once a week. Comments welcome. I don’t know any season four spoilers, though, and I’m afraid they haven’t given me the phone numbers for David Tennant, Russell T Davies or Kylie Minogue. If they did, they’d have been yours for a small fee, I promise. But they didn’t.
