Writing - God's own customers




I love my readers. I have a number of people who have been really kind and bought paperback copies of my books then made favourable comments. You might expect that from a set of churchgoers, but as this is Yorkshire and people from 'God's own county' have the reputation of calling a spade a spade, a positive comment is worth a great deal. The kindness comes from those who say nothing or stop buying!

I am slightly confused by Amazon's pronouncement regarding paying royalties per pages read. There have been a number of views about how many pages an author should write. We perhaps should take to the production of massive tomes to make money!!!!
I just want people to want to read me.



The other books available in the portfolio,

 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 thoughtful collections of poetry available solely through Amazon.
