I'm stunned - and thrilled - to announce that the BBC has just optioned my Night Shade novel, FACE.
I need beer.

Congratulations, Tim! I've already told you how much I liked this book, so I'm not terribly suprised someone in TV/film recognized a tense thriller when they saw it. Actually, looking at the current movie listings, I rescind that statement. Still, well-deserved! Now, any thoughts on casting? Who would you like to see as Brand in particular?

Wow! That's great, Tim, congrats! So are you going to request that Lemmy get a role?

Tim, my most sincere and excited congratulations. Always simply knew it would happen. Des

Very nice, Mr. Lebbon. Very nice indeed.

Great news, Tim! FACE would make a wonderful BBC piece--then again, all of your work would.
Just saw the Leisure cover of FACE as well and really enjoyed what they came up with. Excellent all around.

Thanks Gents. Jack, in an ideal world Dan would be Kevin Spacey ... but I doubt that'll happen. I do like Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers) - I think he'd make a good Brand. We'll have to wait and see.
And Pic, yes, Leisure's cover is very nice isn't it? Their covers are getting better & better.

Update on the FACE option: I met with the producer form the BBC at the Hay on Wye Literature Festival recently. They're currently trying to get a professional scriptwriter attached, and she's hoping that will happen over the next few weeks. She did seem very keen on the project, and came up with a couple of great ideas that would make it more film-friendly.
So I still have my fingers crossed! Any more news I'll post here as and when I know.
The problem with meeting at Hay on Wye, of course, is that I went on to spend a fortune on books. (for those who don't know, it's a little town in Wales with about 34 bookshops ....)
