An Update

Hi! Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet lately. I’ve had a major computer failure and am currently struggling along with an old and slow laptop. As a result I’ve had to cancel all my forthcoming broadcasts on Blog Talk Radio. There is one piece of good news however. I’m currently working on another project, which is near to completion. It’s a booklet called From Logic To Enlightenment.

 A delightful book of spiritual insights, miracles and revelations derived mainly from the author’s actual experiences.

!00% royalties from online sales are to be donated to Cotswold Care Hospice, which is where I work for three days of the week. I hope to be up and running as normal again soon. Thanks for hanging in there, and in the meantime take a look at my new cover below and leave your comments. I’d love to know what you think of it. See you soon!

A New Project – Update

Burn with loveWhat started off as a bit of a comedy of errors actually turned out to be a very satisfying first show. It was no coincidence that I chose Author Janice Ross as my first guest. Janice is an accomplished broadcaster on Blog Talk Radio (BTR) and I knew that if there were any technical hitches Janice would be able advise me accordingly. Janice, bless her, didn’t even get home from work until 15 minutes before we were due on air, so it was quite amazing how everything came together in the end.

It was so typical of how I tend to do things that I had not realised that, as the host, I too needed to “call in” to the show. With just a couple of minutes to go before the show was due to start, Janice had called and was on hold while yours truly was still fumbling around trying to work things out. Thankfully we were able to communicate via facebook messaging and she enlightened me.

The show had already been running for a couple of minutes before we actually got going, but once the dust settled everything was fine. Because of all the positive feedback, I’ve decided to go ahead with a six-episode series of Holmsey’s Half-Hour and then take it from there. I already have some amazing guests lined up, so I hope you will join me when the next show airs on October 20 at 9:00 pm UK time.

In the meantime please visit my new facebook page and give it a “like”. Thanks all!

Today sees my first venture into the world of broadcasting as I host the pilot episode of my new show, “Holmsey’s Half-Hour” on Blog Talk Radio. The show will be spiritually themed and I will be chatting to inspirational people from all walks of life. For those who missed my previous post on this subject and who are not connected with me on social media, my first special guest will be Author Janice Ross. I chose Janice for the first show because of the selfless way she promotes her fellow authors.

Janice is also a very spiritual lady and role model for everyone. Janice has a great sense of humour too so I know we will have a lot of fun. If you are unable to tune-in live when the show goes out at 11:00 pm UK time tonight, it’s no problem, as you simply have to click on the link anytime after the event to listen to the recording.

I hope you will join me later, and if you like what you hear, I hope that you will also click the “follow” button to receive all the latest news and updates related to the show.

A New Project

I’ve decided that I need another string to my bow. So, on 6 October 2014 I will be launching my chat show on Blog Talk Radio (BTR). The show is called “Holmsey’s Half-Hour” and will feature inspirational people from all walks of life. The first broadcast will be a pilot to help me get the hang of BTR, but it all looks pretty straight forward so I’m hoping there will be no hitches.

My first inspirational guest will be Author Janice Ross. I specifically chose Janice because she does so much to selflessly promote other authors. Janice will be discussing her latest project which is a book of short stories with a paranormal theme; due for release at Christmas 2014.

Because space is limited on my BTR cover page I’m posting Janice’s full bio and book info below. Please check out my page by clicking on the link. You can also keep up with all my broadcasting exploits by clicking on the “follow” button, which is at the top of my BTR page.

Janice Books









Janice Ross was born in Guyana, South America and migrated to the USA in 1980. Although her citizenship certificate now reads the United States of America, she considers herself a citizen of the world. Sure she has not physically been around the world and back, but she’s travelled in her mind and dreams.

Janice is an author. She enjoys writing about social issues and personal experiences. Janice’s debut release was entitled Damaged Girls. She uses the three books in that series to detail the effects of different forms of abuse, discussing issues that are known to be taboo. Her next release, Jumping Ship, is a dedication to her country of birth and an introductory novella to the Island Hopping Series. It is a colorful and emotional experience of life, love and family. As of present, she is also a contributor to a short story collection – Just Between Us, Inspiring Stories by Women. And lastly, Loving Nate, a novella about the realities of losing one’s self to love.

Janice enjoys reading. And is drawn to stories with distinct characters that she can love or hate, characters she can form alliances with or characters that she can swear off and despise. She is also weak for a good cultural tale, preferably in the form of historical fiction. Janice loves to be taken off guard by clever language and settings.

Janice is also a devout supporter and promoter of other authors through social media. She hosts a show, Cultural Cocktails, on the largest social radio network, Blog Talk Radio.
