Right! Summer’s over (it was early this year in the West of Scotland, being on 15th July) and my proper work has reverted to more regular hours. I now have some time to crack on with ‘Soul Survivor,’ and hopefully expand this blog into more than just a conduit for sales of ‘Damp Dogs & Rabbit Wee,’ which was published just about a year ago.
You know – one of the side benefits of writing and publishing a book, is the introduction it offers to similarly minded aspiring, indie authors.
This past year, I’ve read more books in a twelve month period than ever before. Those books were written not by Terry Pratchett, Frank Dikotter, Neel Mukherjee, Jang Jin-Sung, or Douglas Adams, some of my favourite authors. No – they were written by the likes of Rob Gregson, Jessica Collette, Andy Paine, Sarah Potter, Sue Harris, Robert Wingfield, Lia London, Cynthia Port, Will Once, James Court and Ana Spoke– some of my new favourite authors! (Watch out also for a guy called Corben Duke. He’s just been signed up by a publisher for his comedic fantasy, ‘The Worst Man on Mars.’ Very funny!)
Hopefully, over the next few months I can convince some of these excellent and entertaining writers to spend a little time on this blog, giving a bit of background to their inspirations and aspirations.
Indie authors everywhere …. I’m coming at you with a metaphorical microphone!
But for now …. ‘Damp Dogs & Rabbit Wee’ – the final push.
