My new book site is now user friendly. Besides having all my books laid out in an easy view format, all pages can read the text to you.
Why would I do this? I’ve found it, first, to be far more convenient particularly with so many different computer screen sizes and secondly it also gives a unique and interesting touch to the page.
Why not give it a try and tell me how you find the very clear speech?

It’s raining. Fat drops meander down the glass windowpane in my office like so many overfed translucent snails. Water puddles in the street forming miniature estuaries where worms tunnel up from drowning liquid seeking refuge across the sidewalk only to die between the smooth beaks of a snacking warbles.…Continue

This is probably going to be the last time I post these, as I have finally worked out the right aspect ratio of images to use for creating a 16:9 video. You basically have to dig for the information on YouTube; it is located in a cave, under a rock between two twigs. The right image size for this kind of MPG4 is 854x480, not 720x480. I thought I should pass this on for anyone trying to create widescreen videos. The Roxio I use then condenses the image to 720x480 properly on the finished…Continue

It’s been quite a week one way or another. I finally managed to get on with some writing, or rather, catching up with what I had managed in the past. I’m putting together a kind of family saga, but with a difference. I’ll be running two stories in parallel; both of which are connected, but not that it’s entirely obvious from the outset. More astute readers may catch on early in the book, but I intend something of that nature to happen to all the readers as I will be dropping clues left right…Continue
