The most amazing thing has just happened to me. I received in the mail a publishing contract for my novel "A Skylark Sings" from a major international publishing house Austin Macauley!!! This is such a leap forward for my publishing career as they will p
Now we are in 2017 I took the time of Christmas to edit some of my novels and then to find publishers to send them too. So now "A Skylar Sings" has gone to two publishers in Australia and "Cloud Horses" has gone to Harper Legend which is a digital in print of Harper Collins. I am still waiting to see if Penguin Daw likes "Solar Star"
I am also waiting to see if any of the 12 short stories I sent out to competitions have won anything. I try to remain positive but it gets harder all the time.
Now I am back writing the tenth novel in the Solar Star series. It is called "The Skull Ship."
Finally I have got on to this blog which has casued me no end of hassel as I am not computer savy at all. God save us from computers. Anyway now I can do this, today at least I will tell you what I have been up to this year. I have started the tenth book of the Solar Star series and I am trying to get a new publisher for these SF novels as Nigel at Local Legend doesn't like SF. I have had two offers of publication but both what a substantual amount's of money to publish which I don't have nor wish to spend on pubklication. I did this with Karma Neurtal and so far I haven't got my money back so I am looking for a traditional contract and I will hang out for one. I am sure these novels will sell well and so I must keep the faith and press on sending them out in the hope the right person will see them and reckonise their potentual. I have also written several new short stories this year and entered them in competitions so I am hoping one of them win win a prize.
Personally I have just returned from Sicily where I walked in the footsteps of Insector Montalbano which was great fun.
