Diary – current events.
I want to start by wishing everybody around the world, my hopes, and prayers through this difficult time that we are all going through. It is about thinking of our loved ones, the good people around us and of course ourselves. We need to follow the guidelines that have been set out to make this world a better place than it is now. We all need to act as we can all be responsible for saving lives and helping health authorities with the outstanding work that they are doing.
This is my first update on the news page since March. I have been having various problems gaining access to the website to update. The service was updated and was done with no prior warning. Some three months later, I have been able to update and carry out the changes and updates required.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has purchased and read my latest novel, Ernie. Again, there are issues with the original format as the incorrect unchecked copy was released. This version was taken off the market, and this issue has since been rectified. Thank you, Amazon, for correcting the problem so quickly. The new updated copy is now available on paperback and the e-book format on all Amazon websites around the world.
The next short story release will be out soon, the date to be confirmed. This is now complete and just sitting waiting for a release date to be decided. This short story will be part of a four-compilation short story collection 2. It will then be available on paperback and the e-book format, the same format as my short story one collection. The individual books will only be sold as an E-book as I do not believe it is right to charge the paperback rates for one single short story. These stories will only become available on paperback through a short story collection.
Just like any other author, any reviews are appreciated, and some will be added on this website (under reviews). Your feedback is valuable to me.
I will always add these on my monthly news update – Please remember that you can do this by leaving me a message on here or via my Twitter and Goodreads pages. Any contact from my readers will always be welcomed and answered. I am also looking for reviews on Amazon; I would be grateful if you could spare a couple of minutes to do this for me.
When possible, I generally do a great deal of re-tweeting to support fellow authors. If you would like a mention at any point, please forward your requests through this website on the contact menu. Other than that, you can follow me and leave me a message. As always, I would like to thank my friends and followers. I would also like to thank those who are supporting me in other countries.
I would also like to thank Ann Hewitt, who is not usually a reader but had many late nights wanting to read the next chapter of Ernie. Ann was not one to pick up a book as often as others, but the feedback was terrific. I hope this will inspire you to read more and get as much enjoyment out of them too. I would also like to thank Susan Griffiths for your incredible support. There have been some up and down moments along with the frustrations, as shown above. It is nice when somebody has a word in your ear and provides the encouragement to continue – Thank you.
We have all had trying times over the last few months; the issues shown above are nothing compared to others. What some families have had to face is horrific, and my thoughts go out to every one of you.
I wish you all – Good Luck, Good Health and Good Fortune.
Please stay safe and let’s all beat this virus together.
Once again… thank you for your incredible support.
