Hello Good People
This day I welcome any who may come to this blogsite via my banner ad in the online magazine welovethisbook. By the way, you viewers of my blogsite over the time it’s been on. take a look at the website. You’ll go straight in on the first page. Look at the very top, and keep looking. Because it’s a ‘banner’ ad, you see it in its two parts; first the left side, then the right. Cap a load of the eyeballs!! When you’re ready, click on the ad and you’ll go straight to my Amazon-Kindle page. It displays the covers of my three horror books: ‘The BoCheK Tales’, Series One and Two, and ‘BLOOD’.
Now, for a moment, I’d like to address any who have come to this site via the ad, whilst apologising for the repetitive aspect of it to my ‘seasoned’ readers.
I’m a would-be writer who was, until a few years ago, also a Therapist-Counsellor. Firstly, I met a remarkable young lady, Dionne, who created an outstanding website for me, presenting a therapy technique I’d put together and which I call MIND’SFLIGHT (www.mindsflight.net). It’s a technique to create a state of Deep Relaxation. When it has been really mastered, the ‘mind door’ is open to MINDHORIZON. But that, as they say, is another story, for another day. Thus far, the site has registered just under 9,000 ‘hits’ and continues in its upward rise. Dionne (who I nick-named Smiley), asked me if I ‘did anything else’. I told her about my writings, and the singular lack of success where publishers were concerned. She suggested Amazon-Kindle, of which, at the time, I knew nothing. We entered a sort of partnership; I’d ‘hum it’, she’d ‘play it’. In other words, I provided the writings, and Smiley provided the nous and I.T. skills to do what was necessary to get the stuff on Kindle. My principal genre is horror, although I take the occasional stab in other areas. As I write this, I have four ‘books’ on Kindle, soon it shall be five, as my children’s stories, ‘GEORGE’, Series One, is about to go on.
So, who is ‘GEORGE’? Well, it’s about a little fellow who thinks he’s Saint George – Patron Saint of England; Slayer of Dragons and Rescuer of Damsels in Distress. However – there is a downside: he is but a little dog. There are two series of the work, seven stories to each, with each being a story in and of itself. However, the fourteen stories combined go to make one singular, overall story.
Horror stories and children’s stories do not good bedfellows make (although the Brothers Grimm would give you an argument on that score!). Because of this, the welovethisbook banner ad was dramatically changed at the last moment, and for the best, for which I thank Katherine Duke (the ‘Dook’), Johanna and the rest of the team.
That’s more or less it, save to say that come June/July time of next year, my novel ‘PROMETHEUS ASCENDING’ goes on Kindle. On and off, it took me almost forty years to put together. It’s about the transplanting of a living human brain, from one body into another. Well, anything for a change!
