I have been writing for 30+ years and until I started taking seriously all the advice and support from Word Press had badly written and self-published a fantasy trilogy with nothing to show for it, except for a mention on Amazon.
That was all written back in July(ish) 2015 when I was in one of comedic/ironic phases. Since coming under the more maturing, positive, adventurous and productive influences of the Wordpress Community I have tried to work outside of that bubble.
Since that hapless daze I have published 'A True History of The Isles Vol I' (a history of the Isles Ireland, Scotland Wales & England) which is less than serious and has sold at Nov. 2017-7 copies and the first volume of a multi-volume Fantasy which has sold 2 copies. This is far beyond my dreams.
My blog is a mix of all manner of things from thought on writing, other peoples' words of wisdom, polemics usually political or social and extracts from my books.
My intention is to write until I am summoned from this World Physical and encourage others to do so. Not subscribing to any sort of publishing conventions my advice on that subject is not the best.
At the age of 66 I've hit my writing stride!
