Profile Information

Apologies to anyone who had been reading either of my novels, as they have now been removed. I do hope you get a chance to read them at a later date...


I’d be happy to read anyone’s story, but if you’re a narcissist, I’d stay clear. I’ll say what I really think, and many seem not to want to hear that.


Acid test: a narcissist will delete any comment that is critical, preferring to keep only those that are overburdened with praise. They'll often re-read these comments and accept a truth within them that, in reality, is not there. -They'll spend there time, when they are not changing profile picture, thinking of what will give them another spoonful of sycophantic delight from their doe eyed followers, rather than trying to improve their writing... 


I much prefer well-written fantasy or science fiction, but not exclusively.

I'm amused; announce you'll tell people the truth and they stop posting read requests... :)





As a very important person in my life related to me, the biggest difference between an amateur and professional writer is that the professional finishes the job. Finishing involves non-glamorous back breaking, teeth jarring effort. It means pouring over your words until you want to vomit. All of that doesn't matter if you haven't got the talent in the first place though, but I am beginning to believe that, more often, the issue is work and commitment from wannabees rather than talent.


And one other thing; if you really want to make it as a professional author, then what in God's name are you doing publishing on here? :P


*EDIT* No more adult content read requests; I'm 46, with a weak heart! *snickers*.
