A huge and heartfelt thank you to all the sweet and generous people who have supplied me with testimonials. You all know who you are; I cannot thank you enough.
The first wave of packs (Letter, Synopsis, Curriculum Vitae) goes out on the 25th July 2008. I am ready for untold rejection, I have, in my time, been a salesman and therefore used to being told, in no uncertain terms, thanks but no thanks.
The Village Tales of Fekenham Swarberry (Book One) is complete, although my un-named friend continues to correct my flawed English. With that done, I can now start on book 2. The first chapter is underway with Ethel Blowvalve running like a Hippo for a bus. More of the same old cartoonishly named characters but this time the whole village goes on a charabanc trip to France.
I still am filled with a curious mix of fear and excitement. Fear that no one will want to publish me; excitement that they might. We will see.
All in all, there are four stories ready for publishing apart from my Fekenham stuff. There are a couple of short story's, both of which I would like to see illustrated but so far have not been able to find an artist willing to work with me, plus 'Twist', which I started here and also a collection of odd bits that may, or may not, be book worthy. First things first though; let's get Fekenham published.
I hope to shortly return to this site with some new words, story's etc.
See you all soon.
