Writing Update 2018

Writing Update 2018


Another year, another set of books, another million ideas (if I live to be 10,000 I could write them all).

It’s been a frustrating 2018, largely my own fault, not productive enough, not determined enough to fine a mainstream outlet for my work and distracted by silly side projects.  Nevertheless I did get A Landscape for Yourself (poetry and photography) book out and Upstairs Cat Two is out this December.  Next year I have a duel approach to publishing, Fyre and Stone (murder mystery) will be aimed at mainstream publishers, while The Deaths of Guner Zoon (sci-fi comedy) and Botolf Tales (comedy) will be published on Amazon.

I have no plans for a poetry book in 2019 but I do have an idea for a kids’ book (maybe for Halloween).

Also plans to use my Youtube account more and maybe do an audio book (watch this space).


I hope you continue to enjoy my work and support me in the future

Thank you for your readership



Writing Update September 2018

Summer has gone and Autumn is here.  Editing is a bit slow at the moment which is delaying several projects, but thanks to some friends we are getting there.  A Landscape for Yourself (poetry) has been this year’s only publication so far, but this December More Adventures with Upstairs Cat will be available.  I was hoping to have either The Deaths of Guner Zoon (comedy sci-fi) or Botolf Tales (comedy fantasy) out by Xmas, there’s still a chance that might happen but if not one will be published early in the new year.


As for writing projects on the go at the minute, I’m finishing More Adventures with Upstairs Cat, then back to work on Fyre and Stone (crime fiction), and a couple of new short stories and poems before the end of the year.

Hoping to have a flurry of publications in 2019 and approach main stream publishers with two books as well.


Once again thank you for your readership
