Collaboration, an Ending and a Beginning.

I've just posted a colloaborative poem with Jeff Bezaire. Check out his other work on  especially if you enjoy that Gothic feel. 'Royalty Falls' will finish posting tomorrow, and I have just started posting 'Cassandra'.


'Feed Your Head' is finished.

This book was written for the BoMoWriCha monthly challenge -- to complete a book within a month with the prompt 'your protagonist knows that they are a character in a book'.

Very influential for the idea was the cover provided by fellow booksie member, Markie Bee.

Anyone looking for a cover, or an idea, go visit his profile. He offers a fantastic service and deserves to get a lot of suport.

I want to send a special thanks to members Sue Harris, Jeff Bezaire, and of course, Mike S. for their unwavering support for without them this would have not been completed.

Anyone that would like to check out the book, here is the link:

Also for anyone that would like to check out the BoMoWriCha House:




A New Type Of Collaboration

Mike S. has just posted a new collaboration we have written. We've done quite a few poems but this was our first attempt at a story.



Lewis Carroll Society

The Lewis Carroll Society of North America has placed a link to 'Madness Poems from Wonderland' on their facebook page. Thanks to Markie Bee for proving that I was not imagining it, and for supplying it's fantastic cover.


A New Writing Challenge.

For anyone looking for a challenge with a difference check out Reaper's new writing challenge, on both Booksie Classic and the Imaginarium forums. Disney with a twist. What could be better!

Also I've just started to post a short book inspired by a fantastic cover given to me by Markie Bee, called 'Rosie is Dead'. For great covers check out his portfolio.


Check Out This House

Dr Acula has just started a pretty unique house,  called the House Of Ten Thousand Exotic Rooms'. Pop along and check it out -- maybe join up and grab yourself a room!


I've just started posting volume 2 of my Amazon Book Reviews. Only three books so far, two written by Booksie members. If you have anything on Amazon that you'd like me to check out, let me know and I'll see what I can do. The reason I started a new volume? Well, at fifty chapters I wanted to give the more recent reviews more of a chance of being read.


Fantastic Covers

Fellow Imaginarium member, Markie Bee has just started a new blog of the most amazing covers. He even has some free ones up for grabs so check out     Even if you want to make your own covers he shares some great tips on making them more impactful.


Experiment In 'Show and Tell'.

I've just posted a story that's a bit of an experiment to me. Would be glad to know what you think of it.


One Completed, One Started.

'Nursery Crimes' is now complete and I have just started posting a new book called 'Madness Poems From Wonderland'. These will pretty much follow the story-lines of Lewis Carroll's original 'Alice' books.

Also, within the next few days I'll begin posting a book called 'Royalty Falls'. This is a bit of a challenge for me as I don't very often tackle fantasy stories.



Trilogy Of Poems and Twisted Nursery Ryhmes Book.

I have just posted a trilogy of poems The Conjuror 1, 2 and 3.

Also inspired by Markie Bee's fantastic cover I am posting a book called 'Nursery Crimes' made up of stories inspired by nursery rhymes and given a bit of a twist,


New Book

I have just finished posting a new book called 'Hide And Shriek'. It was inspired by the fantastic cover and title supplied by Booksie member Markie Bee Watch out for a new book starting soon called 'Royalty Falls'.



This short story is currently being editted and parts of it rewritten. Look out for the new version posting soon but don't expect a comfortable read.

The 'Flash!' anthologies for this year are currently suspended.


'Flyder' is finally complete.

It took me a while, with a few stops and starts, but the book is finally finished and posted.

Also, 'Do You Believe In Ghosts' and 'The Rock' have been deleted for rewritng. Look out for version 2 for both titles coming soon.

Two new books that will be posting soon are 'Zombie Survival Games' and 'Choill Dubh'.


'Hunted' is finished

Any zombie fans out there, please go and check out this collaboration I worked on with C A Sechler. It is only ten chapters long so won't demand a lot of reading time. Hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed writing it.


Two new collaborations

I have just written a collaborative short story with jaylisbeth, called 'Noel', and am working on a collaborative novel with Reaper called 'Witche's Coven'.


Hunted -- a collaboration with C. A Sechler.

It's been a puzzle, it's been a problem, but fair play to C. A. -- she did not give in and our collaborative novel is finally posting. If you are a zombie fan, check it out!


Thank You, Ronin Express.

Just a quick thanks to the Publishing Network for putting three of my stories and poems into print, in 'The Ronin Express Volume 3.'


Two Minds, One Voice!

I have just started to post a book fo Mike S and my collaborations. They have all been posted on his profile but we thought it would be nice to collect them all together in one book. It is called 'Two Minds, One Voice!' and is very much a work in progress, not least because we are still collaborating on new stuff regularly!

Recommended Read for 'Alice' Fans.

Reaper has just started posting a book that I so wish I was writing. Called simply 'Alice', it's a must read for any Alice fans!

Book of Amazon Reviews.

I have just started posting a book of reviews that are on Amazon, either as e-books or paperbacks or both.Some I have already reviewed on Amazon, but those that I haven't will have the same ones posted on

I am planning on featuring many by fellow Booksie writers, but I'll also be including some of my favorites, and some books by unknown authors. If you have work on Amazon and would like me to include it, let me know, but please understand that I have a very limited budget, and although I love reading I am not the quickest.


100,000 thank you's.


That's what I'm sending out to all of you on Booksie that have helped me achieve a platinum medal. Your support and encouragement is really appreciated!

I have just done an 'interview' with Dr. Acula for the meet the authors anthology. It was great fun and turned out really well. All the other interviews were so well done. Check it out!
