Victor in the Netherworld

Behind schedule, but I’m in the final stages of proof reading/editing. Hopefully early this coming week the Kindle version will be available, and the paperback version by next weekend. There’s just the small matter of the cover to finalise. Anyway,…

That was the month that was.

It has been an interesting month. Little traffic on the roads because the schools are all shut, the UK Parliament in recess so the press are scratching around for stories and, of course, the weather in the UK has been…

Radicalisation of UK Youth

Yesterday in Parliament, acting-but-delaying-the-leadership-election-as-long-as-she-can Labour leader (sic), Harriet Harperson, exposed a dastardly plot to radicalise British Youth and turn them into Tory voters. Invoking Parliamentary Privilege, she accused Top Tory Toff, George ‘Abu Chancellor’ Osborne, of proposing a budget which would continue…

Wittering writer writes a blog post

Hello, good morning and welcome–oh, somebody else has already used that catchphrase, haven’t they? Let’s see now… Once upon a time there was a writer who really, really meant to write a blog post every single week and he was…

A teaser

I’m nearing the end of the next novella. This is a completely different genre for me, and I must say that I’m having fun writing it. Below you’ll see the covers for the Kindle version. As always, a fantastic job by…

Volunteers, one pace forward, march!

Beta readers required, please. I’m just over the halfway mark in the new novella, and with four days off coming up, I should have it finished by next week. I would like a couple of people to take a look…

I had a friend

A friend has died. I hadn’t spoken to him for a while, but we go back a reasonably long way–or perhaps I should  say we went back a reasonably long way. Not school friends but a  friend you make later in…

Character-driven plot

I had a busy and productive two-week holiday recently. Sure there was some visiting of local purveyors of fine ales, and yes I finished and published ‘Song a song of Saturn’, but perhaps more importantly for long-term success, I ‘studied…

It’s OK to mention the war

This last weekend, the VE day celebrations were overshadowed, in the UK at least, by the General Election on Thursday and the aftermath of what was an unexpected–in some quarters if not here–outcome. There is a train of thought that says the…

Coalition?

I’m on record as saying I think Snooty, Smug and Supercilious will get back in with a (small) working majority, so I don’t really think so. We’ll all know in about twenty-four hours though. I have a healthy scepticism of opinion…

Sing a Song of Saturn

Available on Kindle Yesterday I spent a fairly relaxed hour uploading Sing a Song of Saturn to both Kindle and CreateSpace, Amazon’s paperback publishing arm. Yes, that’s right, one hour! This morning Amazon informed me that the Kindle version was live and available,…
