Blog

I’ve been interviewed again.

Retired detective Paul Anthony kindly invited me to be interviewed for his blog and I was more than happy to oblige. Paul is an independent publisher who has written several books and screenplays and is a former winner of the Independent Authors Network Featured Author Contest. He was also a Featured Author at the ‘Books without Borders’ event in Yonkers, New York in 2012. A busy man!

We covered a range of subjects from my favourite authors to what I feel are some of the biggest challenges facing authors today. If you’re interested, you can find the interview here in all its glory.

If you get the opportunity, please swing by his site and have a look at his books and hopefully, you’ll find something that piques your interest.

My thanks to Paul for inviting me to be a guest on his blog.

Happy New Year!!

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year!!! Hope 2019 brings you everything you want for yourselves and your loved ones.
 
Looking back on 2018 I have to say, Wow! That was an interesting year! I went from nothing to having three books released in a six month period. The fourth one has been written and is (nearly) ready for submission. Made lots of new friends (mostly real) got to meet some fantastic authors and bloggers (you know who you are) and I want to thank you all for your love, help and support.
 
Thanks to everybody who’s dropped by on here and had a little read and thanks to those of you who dropped me a line to say ‘Hi’. I’m grateful to you all.
Oh, and I capped it all off with emergency root canal work today.😕
 
2019. Let’s ‘ave yer!

Merry Christmas and a Massive Thanks

I just wanted to drop by and wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

This has been a ‘productive’ year for me, shall we say, and I’ve gotten to ‘meet’ (some in person) some hugely creative people who are a real inspiration and chatted with a number of readers who have been nothing short of fantastic and encouraging.

I’ve stepped into a whole new world that I wasn’t sure I would ever be able to, and found it to be full of the most friendly and supportive people who are just…bloody diamonds!

So, a huge thanks to all you readers, bloggers, reviewers, writers and everyone else who’s walked with me on this most unusual journey over the last six months (you all know who you are) and given me love, help and support. I am extremely grateful to you all.

Paterson & Clocks are gearing themselves up for another busy year next year and I can’t wait to see what the pair of loveable little rascals get up to next! 😉

See you in the new year!

How many?

Short post.

I just read the article below and had to do a double-take at the secondary headline:

Iranian in court accused of buying chemicals to prepare for UK terror attack

Fatah Abdullah is alleged to have bought a knife, balaclava, “explosive pre-cursors” including chemicals, more than 8,000 matches and a number of fuses.

Okay, as shocking as this story is the thing that caught my attention was, why the hell he needed 8,000 matches! What was he planning to do with 8,000 matches?

I’m genuinely curious about this so if anyone can come up with an explanation or some suggestion, I’d love to hear it.

I’ve been Interviewed!

Earlier in the week, I was privileged to be interviewed by Gareth Stevens, a fellow writer, for his blog.  After he contacted me and asked for an interview I popped along to have a look at his site. What a little treasure trove of information it is. Apart from Gareth blogging about his own experiences as he writes and publishes his own work, there are numerous interviews with authors who write in different genres and a look into other aspects of the industry.

I’ve always found it interesting and inspirational to read about how other authors work, the path they take to publication and how it’s worked out for them and I lost myself in reading some of the stories on the site.

There’s literally all sorts of interesting stuff to read on there and I recommend you go have a look.

My interview can be found here.

Gareth’s website address is GJStevens. com and this is his first book.
