For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
I'd be very interested to learn if there are any readers who would comment on an intro to a new novel that I am considering writing. This is probably the best place where appropriate feedback will provide an indication of whether I should continue or not. The intro is created simply to lead the reader into the story.
The title of the novel is Prism and it covers the…Continue

To the writers of this world: Whether you write fiction, biography, historical facts or whatever, there are a few 'ingredients' which are an integral part of your being which come into play each time you dip pen in ink. No two people are alike once these 'ingredients' begin to manifest. One of the quotations I use that I credit to Jasper T. Nicoli says: "Only through opposites do we experience the contrasts in life."
He also says: "Desire is a mathematical predisposition…Continue

"In the beginning I would have said that Jasper T. Nicoli is the alter ego of Mike O’Hare, co-author of “The Meadow“. However, due to many strange experiences over the last few years, I’m convinced that this is a person, albeit no longer existing as a living and breathing human being."

I reckon I was about three years old when I was allowed to venture out to play for the first time in my neighbourhood. In my days of being a toddler there were no unknown fears such as unsavoury characters roaming around the place or vehicles that we could term as traffic. There would be the odd cyclist peddling down our back lane possibly followed by the refuse collectors (we called them the bin men) once a week.
We would have the coal man call each fortnight and the rag and bone man…Continue
After a recent discussion and the sharing of a few photographs with a friend regarding how our natural and local habitat can inspire us so much, I thought I'd ask the members here to post places that have given them the most inspiration, especially when it comes to writing.
Unless you are living in dense forest or the jungle, I was amazed how similar our areas can be.…Continue
You either love or hate the subject concerning reincarnation. To others it's a taboo topic which should never be approached or suffer the consequences. The conventional idea behind reincarnation is that after dying we return to the Earth plane to live another life. However, when up-to-date theories are introduced and the study of quantum physics is brought into the equation, a…Continue

I’m pretty sure there are many like me who have a predisposition to hoard. The Aladdin’s Cave of any home is the attic or loft where all the unwanted stuff gets piled away and is forgotten — out of sight, out of mind. My attic is the home to many of my kids’ (now grown up) old toys and comics, lovingly preserved and boxed so that one day they can be passed on or auctioned to…Continue

"The Colour of Music" is a rather bizarre combination of words used as the title to an article which attempts to help us understand the workings of the Universe from our perspective as human beings. We consider 'hearing' and 'sight' as two of the five natural senses which, combined with the other three, feed our consciousness with information that helps us to experience…Continue

Share with me my memories from the late '60s when I was holidaying on the island of Tenerife. These memories are much more than just lying on a beach or swimming in the sea. Here's a hint at what I encountered and all the fun which surrounded my adventures as I covered the island from north to south. Ouch lol!!

It may not be happening in your neighbourhood yet, but if the UK manage to close down all of its branch libraries because of so-called cost cutting, it could happen anywhere. Please support this by sharing with others.
