Season’s Greetings

Season’s Greetings Good People

Well, for me the year is just about done, and ‘GEORGE’, my second book, is done, dusted and out there.

What will probably be my third and final book is almost completed; ‘BON APPETITE’. My short stories written over the years since 1969, and including a few short poems. The strapline under the title will probably be ‘A Feast for the Imagination’.

Have a great Christmas, and may 2018 be all that you would have it be.

Cheers, and thank you for your company.

GEORGE HAS LIFT-OFF!

Hello Good People

Well, it seems ‘GEORGE’ is taking off, having exposed himself on social media.

I don’t know too much at the moment, save Facebook had recorded 240+ responses at one point. Also, it seems the publishers, AUSTIN MACAULEY, are going for it, with posters, bookmarkers and the like. So, watch this space ….. as they say.

Regards …. and festive Greetings.

The PODCAST Interview

Hello Good People

Today, at 2PM, I had my Podcast interview. It lasted 40-minutes, and I got to say/cover all that I wanted; from ‘GEORGE’, to ‘PROMETHEUS ASCENDING’.

From a beautiful little dog with a green bum!, to living human brain transplant, to the human soul to Cryogenics and a trip to Mars. An interesting interview, even if I do say so myself!

And now, I just sit back and see what the next few weeks may bring.

Toodle-Pip!

‘GEORGE’: Social Media sites

Hello You Lovely People

I think I may have sent you all a similar email not so long ago. Still, here goes:

I have yet to see either a copy of the ‘GEORGE’ book or the poster. All is happening at the publisher’s end: publishing, marketing (including Social media and a Podcast interview) and the warehouse (getting ‘GEORGE’ out to the specifically personally ‘targeted’ people/places I’d listed, and also the main ‘target’ list I’d suggested). On top of that, of course, the full AUSTIN MACAULEY mailing list. The retail side was set and ready prior to the publishing date.

SOCIAL MEDIA SITES: I ain’t on these no more, know what I mean!? IF you good people see anything about ‘William P Thomson’s ‘GEORGE’ book, please let me know. Pretty please J!!

That’s all, folks.

‘GEORGE’ and Social Media; ‘BON APPETITE’

Hello You Luv’ly People, One and All!

Well, as you know, ‘GEORGE’ is up, running and out there now. The publisher (AUSTIN MACAULEY – AM for short) has done a number on Social media, which I’m not now on at all. Couldn’t really get into it. If any of you see mention of the gorgeous little mutt (sorry,Maria!), I’d be grateful for any description/comment.

It’s also on the AM website: the cover of the book and my brief back cover write up of the storyline.

Hopefully, in the next week, the fun should start, as copies go out to most of you. I’ll be looking out for any reviews, via the AM website. I’ve read a few on ‘PROM’. Not too bad, but I think some expected a rip-roaring horror fest, and were disappointed it wasn’t. I think things will remain quiet until Canavero does his living human head transplant over in China (now scheduled for April 2018). Mind you, one not too satisfied reader was delighted with the latter part of the anti-hero’s final speech, in which he spoke about euthanasia. So enthused was the reviewer, he quoted the paragraph in question word for word! God bless the critics, whether they pan or praise.

‘BON APPETITE’ This is my third – and final – book. I want to wait and see how ‘GEORGE’ makes out before I ask AM to make a decision on whether to publish or not. It’s the collection of my short stories – going back to 1974 – even further if you include two old poems of mine (1969). The book is set up as a mix, from tongue-in-cheek, schoolboy disgusting horror, to the darkest of dark horror. I also throw in a few poems, as said, including a story in verse and prose, titled ‘ARRIVAL’. It’s about the Second Coming. You know me, in for a penny …………

That’s about it, really. It’s weird being in the dark, with little George strutting his stuff out there …. alone (pass the tissues, Gladys!).

Cheers,

PT J
