Same old, same old Not much to report really, people. I’ve been writing a lot and I’ve been waiting for that jacket I ordered last week to arrive. But mostly I’ve been writing. *** If you like SF/Humour novels you should check this out. There are three in the Hal Spacejock series so far, written […]

A CD smile I ordered a CD yesterday from this place as part of my girlie’s Christmas present. I received this, erm, confirmation email just. It made me laugh so I thought I’d share. “Your CD has been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves withsterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.A team […]

Oz and motorcycle jackets The batteries in my camera are now fully charged so I’ve been able to take these pics of Robert Sabuda’s wonderful artwork in the Wonderful Wizard of Oz book I was talking about the other day. Pretty cool, huh? *** I’ve also been rather impressed with http://bikeremporium.com/ who I ordered a […]

A Reading – and about time too! Well, I finally managed it. Yes I did. I figured out how to upload a video of me reading from my book all on my own. Well, maybe I had a little help from a certain someone. It’s comforting to know that there are people willing to help […]

Takes Time I’m one step closer, I think and hope, to being able to upload me reading from my book. Any day now. Fingers crossed. Not much else to report other than I wrote a short story today. I’ve not written one of those in a while. At the moment I’m pleased with it. I’ll […]

It’s cold up north And wet. I think that the weather today has been the most miserable I’ve seen this year. Oh well. Last night I attended a book launch I’d been invited to. The author is a lady called Gillian Wallace, and the book she’s published is called The Kin. She seemed a very […]

The future’s bright, the future’s – emerald? I’ve enjoyed this week. It’s been good. I’ve been able to get some writing done and have made considerable headway with my novel. I do miss not being on the Roaming Roman Book Tour though. Yes it was hard work, yes it was tiring and yes there was […]

Better late than never These books were written, edited, illustrated and produced by pupils in Mrs Moyes’ at St John’s Primary School last (school) year, following a couple of workshops I did with them. Sorry it’s taken me so long to put them up here. Needless to say (because you can see for yourself) I […]

What authors talk about when they meet I don’t often get the opportunity to meet fellow authors face to face, so when I found out that my ‘virtual’ friend, author and fellow writeworder Anne Brooke was holidaying in Buxton I jumped at the chance to meet for a chat with her and her husband over […]

Brief One A busy couple of days of writing for me, which although I’m happy with it, doesn’t make for the most exciting blog entry in the world. I had planned to record myself reading from my book, but as luck would have it my camera’s battery died as soon as I turned it on. […]
