What can one say about ones work?

I have great ideas about writing I can write for hours on end about far away places and times, but when it comes to marketing I have to admit I am downright stumped.

It would seem like a form of writers block however it is not strictly the case it seems more like a case of not knowing how to blow ones trumpet.

Now I will be the first to admit that I am not a man without sin but blowing my trumpet is not one of my sins at least I don’t think so.

My greatest pleasure is writing about the main character in my series of novels Samuel a man who through his own vices is doomed to wander the earth until judgment day.

Those who have read my work fall in love with him because he is a simple man trying to make right the things in lives of other for the sins he committed in the past.

For more then 2000 years Samuel wanders the earth in search of his own personal redemption.

The life and times of Samuel Ferreira uncovered and recounted in the pages of this book riveting always entertain and informative follow the story of an ordinary mans humble beginnings as he rose to control one of the biggest corporations in the world. Samuel Ferreira the mystery finally solved and exposed for all to see. Samuel the hero of this story is a typical Joe who wandered through many strange lands and has some rather unusual adventures to say the least. The book closes on a certain day in 2001 in the city of New York. a great read you will be glued to the pages from the first to the last.

The best way for me to explain the story of this character is to say you need to read the story as it unfolds and then you will understand the consequences of his actions and how he tries to make right that which is wrong in the world.

I should add that due to the fact that I am a dyslexic with out a formal education I am largely self taught.

So as you can see I am not good at marketing my work plain words for a great story.

The question of creative writing versus creative marketing

Authors of fiction for the most part have a definite disadvantage when it comes to creatively marketing their work.





Speaking from personal experience I will be the first to admit that when I had completed my first book I thought that I had finally arrived... I was soon advised otherwise.



The Publishers and agents of today are people who deal strictly in what sells and makes money, long gone are the days when a book would be published because it has some moral… Continue

The Sterley’s of Oakland Park a classic regency novel in the making

This particular novel started out life as a spoof on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice for the 2007 National writer’s month competition



However this work has turned out to be so successful in its own right that I have self published it on lulu.com.



The story revolves around Sir Thomas and Lady Ann Sterley the lord and lady of the manor of Oakland Park near the town of the fictional town of Notheringay Surry set in the years 1813-1816 this is a story of a family with… Continue
