Writing - Time's a-pressing

To finish the sentence begun in the title

In short I have a great deal on today, so much so that I can't see me getting any of Grace and Favour written, just when the story is taking me towards a surprising conclusion.

Do you ever find that it isn't procrastination that jumps in the way of the writing process but rather life? Today is one of those. Even so, you may observe, I'm making time to write this blog. In fact blogging is an essential part of life's track and after all it IS writing. So rather than leave you without any contact today I'm blogging early in the day and have provided reminders of the works already published.

Today's Health Warning - sitting down at work is the new smoking!!!!

My 10 books as of December 2014

 My hero was created post recession and so has no concept of how 'good' things were pre-2008. In 'I Have To Get It Right' when he began to flex his muscles he was working in an accountant's office. Then after the Gurentai took him under their wing and removed all of his financial worries, it was justice that was his major concern. He did become involved in international relations in 'The 51st State' but it was for the maintenance of a respectful distance between countries, rather than economic reasons. His trips into the USA had repercussions which can be read about in 'The Biter Bit' but then by the time things began to change in 2011 and the recession was really biting, Steele was trying to make sense of the state of the nation in 'A Changed Reality' and coming up against some really nasty people taking advantage of the shortage of money. By the time the USA are out of their recession Steele's steps are still being dogged by an unknown enemy from the same country. In 'Inceptus' we also find out more about what makes the man tick. The most recent Steele book 'Castled' where Steele is once again at risk from unseen enemies. It would seem that he has become quite recession proof!
The most recent addition to the Steele family is Earth plc in which our hero is concerned with political and emotional issues in this crime fighting adventure.

All books are available in paperback or ebook through Amazon, Smashwords and all good book shop websites.

This is a dystopian story that hinges directly on the state of the nation as a result of fiscal mismanagement. Having said that it is more a story of human relations, privations, love and loss.

Poetry - there are also two thin collections of poetry available solely through Amazon.
