SORRY FOR MY ABSENCE

Hello Good People

Please forgive my temporary absence, but things have been just a tad hectic. I explain:

My second book, ‘GEORGE,’ is to be published, around Christmas time. So, from human brain transplants (‘PROMETHEUS ASCENDING’), to a little dog that has thoughts of grandeur above his station in life …. way above!

And then there’s my hassles with my email system, my two laptops, and salvation courtesy of a BT engineer, a two-hour slog and the replacement of my knackered BT Infinity hub (old hat, old boy) for a very modern Hub5. A what!? Don’t ask me, what do I know!

Add to this, my little block of flats is now encased by scaffolding, as the Council are replacing our windows.

Onwards and Upwards!

I’ve been Q&A’d here and Stateside!

Hello Good People

‘PROMETHEUS ASCENDING’ Q&A

Well, I’m now – via my book – on Digital Media – via my publisher’s (AUSTIN MACAULEY) – in both the UK and the USA. If you go on to www.austinmacauley.com, then click on the ‘News’ segment, then on to the ‘Blog’ segment, you’ll find the results of the Q&A. I haven’t seen it yet. It seems the responses are beginning to roll in. Hey-ho.

Things are a little mixed at the moment. One minute I’m in ‘PROM’ mode, dealing with brain transplants, the next I’m in doggie land with ‘GEORGE’. I’m just waiting on having a weird dream when both interlink. Roll over Shelley, give Poe the news!!

Cheers,

I need a shrink!

Hello Good People

It’s quite hectic this end. I’m juggling one published book (‘PROMETHEUS ASCENDING’), and trying to get another one (‘GEORGE’) accepted. On the one hand, I have Carvel jigging with Frankenstein, on the, George playing St. George with his chums. I think I need a Psychiatrist!

WATCH OUT: You may see a special posting via AUSTIN MACAULEY, my publisher.

Right, that’s it. Stay tuned.

GO ON THEN …….

Hello Good People

Go on then, how many New Year’s resolutions have you driven a coach and horses through already?

I’m somewhat busy at the moment, getting new windows put in at my flat (courtesy of the Council, I hasten to add), and overseeing the illustration for the book ‘GEORGE’ being completed. Everything now depends on the publisher making the decision to publish or not, as the case may be. I think I’ll get an answer c Feb/March.

That’s it, really. The wonderful, exciting, fun-filled, action-packed life of an author: NOT!

That’s it.

Cheers,

We’re in …..

Hello Good People.

Well, we’re in; maybe the brown stuff, most certainly the New Year.

I now await on my publisher, to see if they will go with ‘GEORGE’.

For me, it’s a case of treading water and having a deserved break.

May you all have the best of 2017, and may it be all that each of you would wish. Mind you, as they say, be careful what you wish for …. you may get it!

Cheers,

MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hello Good People

SEASON’S GREETINGS!

If you want a particularly boring I.T. chore, try going through 3,000 DELETED emails (in the Delete field). Don’t ask why!!

I have a new Media Coordinator on my case …. oops, I mean my book! …. but she’s good. ‘GEORGE’is fast looming, but I don’t think I’ll get a decision from my publisher (if they’ll go with it) until around Feb/March time. However, I am still having various illustrations done by an outstanding Illustrator: Finola Stack. Later, I’ll try and put them on this blog site.

Right, that’s it. Drink loads, stuff yourselves silly, and stuff the scales until January. And thank you for staying with me and my ramblings!

Cheers,

Even Slow is Fast!

Hello Good People

I may have mentioned that I’m in the process of writing another short story. I decided to take my time, working on it over the December/January period. It seems I’m already moving towards completion. I suppose, in writing terms, my slow writing is still fast. Hey-ho.

On the ‘PROM’ side of things, it still trundles on. Sometime this week I’ll be at the Bank to see if there are any royalties residing in my account. I’m not holding my breath!

‘GEORGE’ is now being judged. The verdict to publish or not will not be forthcoming until Feb/March next year. The suspense it not evident within me, so not, as yet, killing me. Thankful for small mercies, although some others may not agree. I’m still having illustrations done, and Finola Stack is doing a fantastic job. For that, I’d love her work to have a wider audience, if no other reason.

That is it, save to wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR, and thank you for taking the time in reading my little scribbles.

Round Two! Could be interesting.

Hello Good People

It’s now round two for me, as I have just submitted by second book to the publisher: ‘GEORGE’.

What’s also weird, I’m not able to read my own postings on the site, as my whatever it is, is down at the present. Hey-ho.

From Kat to Carvel

I hate technology!!

Hello Good People

I hate technology. Hassle with my Broadband, hassle with my emails field.

Not all bad news; my Mind’sFlight website has now registered 17,000 ‘hits’.

They’re still marketing my book and I’m preparing my next book – ‘GEORGE’ – to be submitted in June 2017, in time for it to have a Christmas launch’. Even Luddites can be optimistic.

Cheers,
