BOTH BOOKS FINISHED!!! AWARDS/NOMINATIONS A-PLENTY!!!
Season’s greetings, one and all!
There’s much news to deliver, such as the status of The Saviour and The Saviour & Hi-Jax rewrites. I CAN NOW OFFICIALLY CONFIRM…that the rewrite on BOTH BOOKS has finally been FINISHED! AT LAST!!! I am currently re-reading both novels to see how they flow, then I will be submitting for publishing next year with the intent of seeing them in print for 2019. I’m hoping to get there, obviously…but a major victory has nonetheless been achieved this year.
Also, exciting news from the world of theatre. I would love to thank everyone who attended Congleton Players’ adaptation of The Titfield Thunderbolt back in October. It was another tremendous show to be part of and much love and thanks to all the cast & crew involved. I’ll be back again on stage at Daneside Theatre for the 5th-9th February. We’re doing the hit-show One Man, Two Guvnors! And tickets are available NOW! Check out www.congletonplayers.com for more details.
Also, I am thrilled and honoured this year to have received the Geoffrey & Margaret Hoult Annual Award for Excellence for 2017/18. This is a prestigious honour that Congleton Players award to people every year, and the names on this board do so much to help produce quality shows for the people of Congleton every year, and I’m truly flattered to have my name immortalized on this board this year. As I am to receive more NODA nominations this year for Best Supporting Male for my roles in The Ghost Train and The Titfield Thunderbolt. I have absolutely loved my time with Congleton Players and am so thankful for all the new friends I’ve made and all these wonderful experiences.
And finally, I was so pleased with the response I received this year for my poem ‘The Asperger’s Argument’ (which I wrote for Autism Awareness Month back in April) that I decided to turn it into a video for YouTube. Here’s the link and check it out.
Of course, Christmas is just around the corner, and everybody will be hard at work getting ready for the big day. I’m no exception to the rule. So if I don’t update this website again before the year is over, I’d just like to thank you all for your support in what has been a very difficult 2018, and I wish you ALL a very Merry Christmas and a Happy 2019!
Take care, everyone!
