Last week I made an appearance in Brighton. Not in person, but my short story-video was shown at the event Flash Lit Fiction where several stories were screened to the public. James Burt has written about the event here.
The story is inspired by a real life event. Christer Petterson, the guy who was accused of killing Olof Palme, the Swedish prime minister, lived on a balcony for a while. The drummer, and I lived on a balcony in Uddebo for two nights.
The title is inspired by Pretty Tied Up (subtitled "The Perils of Rock n Roll Decadence") by Guns N' Roses. And my brother thought the video was similar to Garden of Eden by the same band.
