My books hit half a million !

I have been occupying my mind during these crazy times by writing.  I have been writing since I was a teenager and am now working on my TWENTY-FIFTH book published on Amazon.

Primarily I write for my own enjoyment and not for money although most days people splash out cash to read my scribble.

With two more months until the end of the year my writing has achieved HALF A MILLION ! 

Not half a million pounds. What would I do with that kind of money ?

I write for pleaure, I have always said to anyone thinking of writing, to write for themselves. If anyone then reads what you write that is a bonus, if they like what they read then that is a double bonus. If you go on to make money that is incredible, enjoy it.

If these words can inspire just one person to write sonething that that would be worth half a million pounds. Why don't you write a diary or blog sating how you feel in these crazy times ? In yesrs to come that could be of infinate value

to sociologists and historians. 

Here's a list of all I have written so far this year. Scroll through the titles as I continue to try to inspire you to write.

The Ramblings Of A Silly Old Man - published 22nd February 2020 - 99p e-book - 38,700 words

Fantasies Of A Geriatric DJ - published 22nd March 2020 - 99p e-book - 42,657 words

Lottery Of Evil - published 31st March 2020 - £1.99 e-book - 41,445 words

The Lonely Ghost - published 19th April 2020 - £1.99 e-book 11,091 words

The The Lonely Ghost was something I wrote for my two granddaughters. When I first started writing I wrote exclusively for children but over the years my style has changed. I made a special effort to revert to an ealier style. Write something for your children or for your grandchildren.

Our Rebekah A Love Story From Our NHS - published 13th May 2020 - £1.77 e-book - 64,130 words

Escape From Armageddon - published 14th July 2020 - 77p e-book - 71,145 words

Milton Dreams The City That Never Was - published 11th September 2020 - £1.99 e-book £3.99 paperback - 66,193 words

Not The Concrete Cows - published 11th September 2020 - £1.99 e-book £3.99 paperback  - 41,513 words

Pip Diamond The Prince Of Rock And Roll - published 11th September 2020 - 99p e-book - 53,235 words

I started recalling my teenage memories to swing through the sixties. I then went back to my kiddy-kid memories of childhood to write You Never Grow Old With Rock And Roll.

Swinging Through The Sixties - published 25th September 2020 - 77p e-book - 38,948 words

You Never Grow Old With Rock And Roll - published 10th October 2020 - 77p e-book - 19,340 words

Right now I am working on my young adult memories Life Is A Disco so Dance - Dance Through The Disco 70's. I am thinking about something about the 1980's but before I start on that I am going to write in my favourite genre - time travel.

I have the whole idea in my head for The Ka Of Timothy Ford-Newman.

If I finish the current project by mid-november, which I should, I can start work on this adventure.

That would mean I will publish twelve books in 2020 and nudge my word total towards 600,000 !

Can I inspire you to write ?

Fancy a challenge ?

Go fir it !
