I’m hoping to get into Birmingham over the bank holiday, to take some photos. Photos of Birmingham? I hear you say. But one, it’s not that bad (honest!) and two, these are special photos, because they’ll be of some of the locations in ‘Raise the Blade’.
I set the book in various places around the city, including a city centre garden, a suburban park, a canal bank, and even the local prison. Now what I’m hoping to do is capture those settings on film and develop an interactive map of some sort with photos of each different place.
Birmingham is quite a ‘closed book’ (forgive the pun) to many people, even here in the UK, and I’m hoping it’ll be interesting to show them just what’s out there – even if it is as a backdrop to multiple murders.
Now, where did I put my camera…?
