A word can change a mind. A sentence can change a life. A book can change the world

Ever been in the process of creating something you think is pretty unique and then realise it’s all been done before? Well, that’s what I’m in the process of re-inventing, but with a modern twist.

Although I’m congratulating myself on the idea of publishing The Brittle Sea (read extracts from the start here) in three parts, as a serial, I realise the Victorians did it before me, as mentioned in Publishing Information #2. Today I’ve woken at 2am with the exciting (to me) thought that when I publish all three parts to The Brittle Sea, i.e., the complete novel, maybe I should call it something special. The Brittle Sea: Big Book maybe? Nope, The Brittle Sea: Omnibus, that’s the one. But the Victorians obviously got there first – doh!

So, the full novel will be published as The Brittle Sea: Omnibus which has a much better ring to it. Full of bright ideas, me! Maybe I’m a reincarnated Victorian publisher or maybe I just like reinventing the wheel.

We can all learn something from the past.

Publishing date to be announced soon.

Living in Cyprus: 2018  is out now, packed full of photographs and over 230 pages in length. This book is three books in one with details of my recent trip to Australia and Italy’s Lake Como. This new release is three times bigger than any of the previous five volumes, 2013 to 2017 and at only £3.99 on Amazon Kindle is still a bargain price.

As a English expat author living in Cyprus, you may think my life revolves around cocktails by the pool. You would be wrong. In ten years on the island I’ve had my fair share of adventures and interesting experiences.
