I submitted a 140 character story to Miniature Stories/140story today. To my surprise mine was selected and published onto their site.
“Living a new life unnoticed, journeying undetected. Without a sound, without a voice, without a touch, watch over your loved ones.”
What do you think my story is about?
Do check out their site and have a go yourself. It’s a fun challenge. Visit 140 story at http://www.miniaturestory.org/
Currently I am concentrating on my University course Creative Writing and English Language rather than trying to complete my latest books Alive and Endurance: Recovery. I promise I will get around to them, I know some of you are waiting the final instalment of the Endurance Series but don’t worry you won’t have to wait too long it will be coming this year, but unfortunately I have to put University first on my mental to do list. Number 1 being Graduate with a degree.
Although, it is great doing Creative Writing as part of my degree because it means that I can still work on future projects. For my creative writing dissertation I am in fact working on a potential book of mine. I had an idea of a book that I wanted to write and it’s an idea that you probably wouldn’t expect me to write.
This book has been given the provisional name The Dog Walk.
This idea is one that is very unlike me. It is a suspense and mystery novel which of course is my favourite genre to write but there will be no violence. I have made this an important rule of mine, if any it will be minimal.
If you’ve read my three books then you will know that the violence in them is quite a main part of my books but this one it will not and instead I will be using something else to drive the story and my reader crazy!
Fortunately this is my last year of university. After this I can really get into my writing and start producing more for you all to enjoy!
With three books in the line, one of them being the conclusion to the Endurance Series, another a Supernatural horror and the other a non-violent suspense novel, I’m sure there will be something for you to enjoy.
I am very happy with my two latest reviews for my third novel and second book of the Endurance Series Endurance: Apocalypse!
Below are the two reviews, I have omitted parts of the reviews (potential spoilers!) BUT if you want to check out the full reviews you can one is from amazon.co.uk and the other at: http://therebelliouspoet.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/endurance-delivers-once-again.html?spref=tw
“As a fan of the first book, I can safely say that this sequel lived up to all expectations. It did everything that we have come to love and expect from an Endurance novel (and a T.J Blake novel for that matter). Particularly at the end, there are some really huge twists and turns, and reveals that provide genuine surprises to those of us who can normally predict an ending. For example, with no spoilers, but finding out the identity of some the ‘elites’ provide us with such glee and shock for those who did get invested with the character.”
“Endurance: Apocalypse is action packed from start to finish, picking up exactly where the last novel ended. I won’t kid you: this is a bloody book, but its not without purpose. Miller’s war is devastating London and, as the body count continues to rise, the more power he gains.”
Fancy reading it?

I submitted an article to ‘World Study Travels’ called ‘To go abroad or not…’ in which I speak about my opinion and experiences of travelling abroad and my holidays in the UK.
