Hey up, things are looking up on the literary front, as I have been commissioned to contribute to a forthcoming anthology of WW2 wartime stories.

Pneuma Springs Publishing Ltd are publishing a collection of 14 fictional stories set in the period 1939 to 1945, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the ending of WW2.

My contribution is a wartime romance that will bring tears to your eyes, and whilst very sad, I hope it will make a few folk smile!!

I'll post the details next month, when the  book title and release date have been announced.

Have a lovely Sunday

Thank you Teragram - We now know that the book title will be 'Treachary and Hatred' and my contribution is entitled 'GI Gerry's Gifts'. Please be warned it's a little bit spicy!!

Have a nice Sunday

Hope it sells well.  I had a short story in a Combat Stress anthology but it was because I'd entered a competition.

Some time ago, I offered my free services to any 'Sixtyplusurfer' who was thinking of writing a book, but was unsure how to present the finished manuscript to a prospective publisher. I also provided some details about the various ways of getting published including a no cost route of self-publishing.

I had a response from one fellow 'Sixtyplusurfer'  who sent me the files of her amazing life story and with a little help from me, the book was published and it's now available through the Amazon distribution network.

About a year ago, whilst taking a P&O cruise, I met a very interesting couple who had undertaken some incredible adventures following their retirement from work. The husband explained that he had written a 500 page book about their experiences but had not managed to have it published. He sent me the files and I did a little editing and provided details of how to get it published for free. It took him about a year but it is now finished and on sale both as a paperback as well as an Ebook. 

I'm no expert in these matters, but I have learnt quite a lot through the process of publishing seven books to date, and I'm happy to share this with no strings attached whatsoever. I'm not offering to write the stuff myself, simply provide a template that works for me, and then provide guidance through the self-publishing process.

I make the same offer today, so if anyone out there is contemplating writing their memoirs or maybe their first novel, but unsure how to go about it, please get in touch and I'll gladly assist. 

Have a nice day
