What next?

The book’s published, promotion work is ongoing, I’ve done an interview with a friendly freelance journalist, hoping to find a magazine or newspaper willing to print it, and I’m left thinking about my next project.

I could give the garden an autumn make-over, sign up to an online cooking course, make an extra loaf of bread every day, start a new fitness regime, read more, watch old movies I’ve seen several times, and go for long walks. 

But my yearning to write is strong. I want to create a story again, invent new characters, contrive events, think up dramas, build in suspense, and figure out all the other facets that makes a book compelling. I’ll tend to the garden, make bread, keep fit, investigate new recipes, watch movies, and read, but no more or less than I do now, whereas writing will become my main event. It’s what I enjoy the most. 

First; I’ll be publishing a trio of short stories in October or November. Then I’ll start on a new novel, and whilst writing it, I’ll post my progress and a few snippets on my website, plus more short stories. 

Two of the trio of short stories to be published can be read on this site.

The parents I did not know

The night my characters came for their revenge 

My latest book, Otto and Frankie, is available in paperback and e-book. It’s different from anything else I’ve written and took almost three years in the making. 

It’s about a dying man’s fight against injustice, his wife’s unusual affair, and the love from his long-lost daughter. I’m told it’s a compelling read.

E-book at promotional price until 30 September: amazon.co.uk. amazon.com.

Paperback: amazon.    

Success! You're on the list.
