London To Rural New York

Surprise from the United States...

My Choice

Don't get me wrong, I love book sales. However, I don’t care how many books I sell. I never have cared about that, really.

Generations

What prompted this post is it dawned on me this morning that I have done something that I had not really intended to do when I started this "project" early in 2016...

Human Being Online

Human Being Online

Clearly those who allow social media not to supplement life and expand their personal horizon, but instead to encroach on living face an issue that they may need to address.

For All The World To Read

For All The World To Read

As you probably know I no longer tweet. However, I do like to "dip into" what I see Twitter writers/authors at its #writingcommunity hashtag are throwing out there for possibly all the world to read. I did so again yesterday and thought I would share a few here...

To Do, Or Not To Do

To Do, Or Not To Do

A change of pace: an afternoon (UK time) post. Why? Because I have seen a few things in recent days I thought worth addressing here and I also chose just to surprise you at a new time. LOL!

The Opera Singer

The Opera Singer

That couple, now in their mid-80s, had been at our wedding in 1999, but I had known them since then only passingly. The husband is a retired opera singer originally from Wales, and as we chatted and I realized he was happy to talk about his career I encouraged him to do so by asking him lots of questions...

The Machine Reads

The Machine Reads

I have used the Kindle text reader on all of my books post-publication. My personal opinion: I have always felt my novels sound better when read aloud by a woman's voice.

The Entertainer

By the way, I swear if you ever publish or "mine" from one of my emails here, I will murder you...

“Fiction comes from fact…”

“Fiction comes from fact…”

Angry emails now started to fly between them, public accusations started to be hurled back and forth, friends jumped in to defend both, something from one of them (I forget which) ended up I think in the Boston Globe newspaper (honestly, by then I was losing the will to live reading about this)...

Ramble (28 Sept 2021)

Ramble (28 Sept 2021)

A few thoughts on what I am doing and on what we see going on out there currently. None of it is really is worth an entire post. You may agree or not agree with some of it, but it is just what I think...

The Book Argument

The Book Argument

Both ebooks and paper books have their positives and negatives - and it is up to a reader to decide which platform best suits their reading taste.

What Would Jefferson Do?

What Would Jefferson Do?

...do not hesitate to reply... that, well, you were vaccinated because that is what Thomas Jefferson would have had done...

USS Constitution Is Staying In Port

USS Constitution Is Staying In Port

Yes, yes, everyone knows France signed an alliance in 1778 with the new U.S. to aid (for a variety of reasons: from some there truly supporting the idea of "liberty" to others who merely saw a great opportunity to stick it to France's long-time adversary, Great Britain) the country in its war for independence. But much less known today...

Ramble #1

Ramble #1

I am introducing here a new type of post: "a ramble." Although, then again, I suspect you would probably note, "Uh, how is this different, given you ramble all the time?"
