A blogvelist – blogger and novelist. It took me a while to take on the novelist mantle – too big a word, too much to aim for. But it’s done, written, ready to be read. One Green Bottle, a Magali Rousseau detective story. And more are on their way.
As for the blogging, what started off as a cautious experiment is a habit now.
But a writer writing about writing? Fascinating, sure, up to a point. And then zzzzzzz….
So although there are posts related to writing, there’s other stuff too: Interviews with such luminaries as Mabel Moo and Deirdre Dodo, Pic’n’Post, poems which don’t always manage to take themselves seriously … A whole weekly menu!
Will the journey ever reach its intended destination? Who knows?* But it will, I hope, be enjoyable in itself. Care to join me?
*Update: The answer is yes, insofar as One Green Bottle was released by Meizius Publishing in September 2015. The journey, of course, continues after that, or perhaps a new one starts, but to accompany this event, and delve into the whole writing business more seriously, I have another blog, which will include background information, links to resources, book reviews and analysis. The journey now involves writing the sequel, Perfume Island, while One Green Bottle enters the promotion phase. To that end, I’m actively seeking reviewers: a free copy (epub, mobi or pdf) is available by clicking here to anyone willing to write a review on Amazon. And if you want a sample before deciding, the first four chapters are here.
