Transition


I’ve been writing this blog for over nine years now, and I’ve never before left it so long in between posts.  I’ve chosen not to write about the current situation because I feel that there are already plenty of pundits out there offering an opinion.

What I will say, however, and I’m sure there are many experiencing a similar thing, is that we do seem to be going through some kind of transition.  The truth is, that the reason there have been no posts from me lately, is that I simply don’t know what to write about at the moment.  There has definitely been a shift of some sort; and who I was as a writer doesn’t seem to exist anymore.  I have taken my only two remaining books out of circulation, so for the first time since I started publishing my own books, I have nothing available for purchase.

We know that life is cyclic, so I suppose it’s true to say that I’m waiting for the next upsurge in inspiration.  I wouldn’t call this writer’s block, as I don’t think that’s something that applies to writers such as myself.  Also, I cannot say what form the next wave of my writing journey will take.  One thing that I am sure of though, is that I will always be writing in one way, shape or form; even if there will on occasion be a longer gap than usual between projects.

Thank you for sticking with me and I hope you are all staying safe.  Below are pics of my latest painting and my musical “family.”  Take care lovely subscribers and I’ll be in touch again soon!

 

Update


Happy days everyone; wishing all my readers and followers good health and happiness.  I’ve been quiet on here lately as I’ve been balancing my day job with my fatigue and publishing my latest book.  The good news is, that not only is my manuscript finished, but I have also finished the formatting process.  I now have a completed interior.  So, I’m in the process of deciding which, out of two, publishing platforms to use; do I go with the devil I know, or do I try something different?  I’m also about to engage the services a professional cover designer.

I’m sure that Eyesight To The Blind will actually be available sometime between early and mid-June.  However, I may well hold back on an official launch until July, so that I can get some marketing in place.

I have also now unpublished The Amazing Journey.  The reason for this is that it was essential for the flow and accuracy of the story in Eyesight To The Blind, that I touched on a few things from prior publications.  Hence, I didn’t think it appropriate to have both books available at the same time.  I have also unpublished From Logic To Enlightenment for the same reasons.  But don’t think that I have simply stuck two old books together to make one new one.  I have never written in such detail before about my experiences and life in general.  So, if I hadn’t mentioned certain things, there would have been gaps in the story.  Unless there are any changes, the page count for Eyesight is 287.

I hope you are all well!

Best Regards
