We covered the book, the story, writing, publishing, the UK flag, even some… Continue

WHY THE UK DRIVES ON THE LEFT by Storyheart
One of the first things anybody notices or remarks about when traveling in the UK is the fact that we drive on the left hand side of the road. However there is history and reasoning behind this.
In days of old logic dictated that when people passed each other on the road they should be in the best possible position to use their sword to protect them selves. As most people are right handed… Continue

AMAZON AND SALES RANK NUMBERS
I noticed the other day that my sales rank for my book “Across the Pond” went from 8000+ to just less than 3000 when I ordered four books. The sales rank number seemed at the time, to change by a large number within the rank numbers with only the purchase of a couple of books.
So needing a couple more books to keep my stock level before school visits etc, I have ordered two more copies as an experiment.
Today my ranking had slipped… Continue
