Much has been done…and there is still much to do!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Feels weird saying that in February…hope you all had a great Christmas and all the best for 2016!

Anyway, my apologies for the late update, but there has been so much going on in my life recently. Namely work, writing, drawing, Mystery Project ‘A’…and acting.

First things first, my sincere thanks to everyone who supported me when Bear Spirit made the finals of the Parsec Awards for “Best Speculative Fiction Story: Small Cast (Novella & Long Form)”. Sadly, I didn’t triumph, but I will always be proud that my work made it THIS far and will forever have the distinction of being an official Parsec Awards finalist. Congratulations to Paul E Cooley on his victory with The Black: Arrival, and well done to all my fellow finalists and entrants in their respective categories. Check out The Black: Arrival at the link below!

Also, throughout 2015 I was working on something called ‘Mystery Project A’ which I have long since revealed as My Top 10 Wrestling Shows. Being a wrestling fan, I wanted to share with others my thoughts and feelings on what major events best sum up the greatness of wrestling. Check it out here!

I am also proud to announce my joining of Congleton Players! I have always loved the local theatre group for the amazing productions that they put in, and I’ve always fancied trying my hand at acting. Having joined the group at long last, I successfully auditioned for the role of the Reverend Parris in the Players’ recent adaptation of Arthur Miller’s masterpiece ‘The Crucible’ and we completed the week-long production of that to great acclaim! Expect more details of that to follow soon! In the meantime, be sure to check out the Players’ website at http://www.congletonplayers.com/

And finally…progress is PICKING up on The Saviour & Hi-Jax! There are only SIX more chapters to complete! STAY TUNED! THE END IS WITHIN REACH!

See you again soon with more news, poems and artwork!

Much has changed…

Hey, everyone.

I apologize again for the late updates to this website. 2015 has been full of ups & downs, both creatively and personally. For those who haven’t known, Beartown Radio ceased broadcasting back in January, which subsequently meant no more Box of Stuff and an end to my radio career. For now, anyway…

My time on-air  will be covered in the new ‘Radio’ page, and I’m filling in the gap with rewriting the next book ‘The Saviour & Hi-Jax’. The plan is to get the book finished by the end of June. So far, I’m making progress.

Also, I’m pleased to announce that ‘Bear Spirit’ has been nominated for this year’s Parsec Awards in the category of Best Speculative Fiction Story: Small Cast (Novella Form). To check out the story, download for FREE at http://www.parsecawards.com/2015-parsec-awards/nominees/!

More artwork and poems are now available to browse, and I aim to update this website more regularly. I’ve got plans for 2015, and am working to see them come to fruition. For more news and regular updates, please visit my Official Facebook right here.

See you all soon.

Greetings, chums! Long time, no see!

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, and that you have a positive 2015!

 

I will start mine by saying…‘Hooray! My website is restored!’

 

It’s been a long time in the making but I’m pleased that my website is finally functioning again. I do apologise for leaving it in such a sorry state for so long, but much has changed over the last few years. Learning to drive, getting on radio, covering local events, work, becoming an uncle, and with several projects on the go, this website has had to be shunted to the backbench.

 

However, all is now more professional-looking again, and I’ll do my best to keep on top of it and avoid neglecting it again. I’m still on Facebook and YouTube (both of which you can check out under ‘Links’), so tune-in there for updates of ongoing projects, as well as my radio show ‘The Box of Stuff’, every Tuesday night on Beartown Radio at 7pm.

Writing-wise, my 2013 radio serial ‘Bear Spirit’ is released in podcast novel form courtesy of the great folks of Podiobooks.com! Check it out HERE at http://podiobooks.com/title/bear-spirit/. Also, I’m in the midst of re-writing ‘The Saviour & Hi-Jax’ – the long-awaited sequel to ‘The Saviour’ – for a 2015 release (that’s the plan, anyway), so plenty of stuff to expect in the foreseeable future.

Take care, everyone. Stay tuned!

The Daily Kingdom

 

To them, I stock papers.

To me, I provide news.

What is their library

is my gift to the people.

 

To them, I just stand & serve.

To me, I run, I labour, I negotiate…

What is their library

is what I manage and provide.

 

To them, I know nothing.

To me, I know what and when.

What is their library

is really mine.

 

My knowledge, my wealth.

My riches, my spoils.

My pride, my frustration.

My trenches, my throne.

 

To them…it’s just a shop.

Just a convenience.

Utterly mundane.

 

To me…they’re right.

It’s not glamorous.

But it is mine.
