Mental Dental (MBP)
They are all very different and very deserving, in my view but I am biased.
So why write?
Is it for the money? Well that to me is secondary.
I write to relax and unwind, leave the present and enter a creative realm of fiction.
I am very proud of what I have written and I appreciate it may not be Dickensian on Shakespearian but it is contemporary.
They are great stories underpinning my own unique style of writing.
I am used to writing research and reports professionally and this sometimes may be slightly unorthodox but its how I do it...
I hope you can give them a chance, read them, enjoy them. If you do (or don't), I ask you to please leave a review on my author page or on my website / blog...
This will help distribute my work so more people can enjoy them.
Thanks for your time and interest and don' forget to share the fruits of my thoughts.
I was chatting to Keiron, my App developing son, about ideas to promote Phantasms in the Infirmary.
He said, you can send a horror story onto one of the pages.
Keiron said ' read some first and see what the style is first'
Me being an inpatient so and so, just posted one of my stories onto the site. This would have been great but I added a quick promo message.
It got a few hits but then got taken off... Why? Because part of the conditions are No promotion......
Halloween is tomorrow, have you got your copy of Phantasms in the infirmary?
What are you waiting for?
It's a collection of short stories involving an old haunted hospital.
It's going to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up with the adrenaline surge...
It's going to give you the willy's....
It is scary... Promise....

Phantasms in the Infirmary
Edits, graphics and all avoidable issues addressed.
The book completed, files including cover submitted. IBM obtained.
Pricing structure and distribution.. Checked
Files are now under review and this means that the book is soon to be published in both paperback edition and Kindle edition.
The process takes a little time but it should all be ready for reading just before Halloween.. Deadline achieved!
My co-author, Julie, My wife, has worked hard to accommodate the deadline.
My one worry, will it link directly to my existing author page?
Now we wait with a view to updates on this blog...

Phantasms in the infirmary
Short stories provide somebody with a condensed tale that offers the reader a temporary escape from reality and use their imagination with the prompt from the text.
Phantasms in the infirmary does exactly this but with a twist of horror and a dash of spectral ghoulishness.
The collected stories provide a range of eras, situations and victims as well as the ghostly apparitions perpetrating the spooky encounters.
It is soon going to be available for purchase on the Amazon websites. It will be in kindle format and paperback
The countdown starts soon, in time for Halloween....

My publisher rang asking me to consider getting more promotional about my first novel.. Legally Lucky
They said it has the making of a great film.
I'd like to solicit some opinion on this.
Please let me know your thoughts on this.
Writing a screenplay is another thing for a novice like me and I'd need some guidance.

My home town of Gibraltar, newbies to uefa, played their second match, result was 7-0 to the republic of Ireland.
The results were to be expected, big learning curve for us but great last 25 minutes by the lads.
No shame to losing to the big boys
its a great opportunity to show the world we can compete and as the song goes... things can only get better.
Losing to Poland last time was made a little easier as they beat the world champions Germany 2:0 today....
Keep up the good work boys
