New writing and new book ideas

I have officially started writing the next instalment of Endurance, ‘Endurance: Apocalypse’ (Endurance 2). For those of you who have read Endurance, it will be as gory, as action packed and I hope as unpredictable! I’m writing it when I can, hoping for it to be completed early(ish) 2014!

I also have a new mystery thriller book idea which I am developing at the moment. I could possibly begin writing it at the beginning of next year.
I do however have two other book ideas as well as the mystery thriller idea to pick from so we shall see what I decide to write. Who knows I may need to ask the opinion of you to help me decide.

So, very exciting prospects for the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014, with my next book ‘The Author’ coming out hopefully within the next few weeks and possibly ‘Endurance: Apocalypse’ out at the beginning of next year, and then more writing with my 3 other book ideas for the rest of 2014 and maybe 2015!

So my second novel is coming along very nicely. I have nearly written the book after that it will then be edited and proof read.

But right now the front cover has been completed and now I will have to work on the book cover myself and when that’s done then I will put it out there for all of you to read.

My response to a question constantly asked

Since I have decided to self-publish my first book Endurance, people have instantly asked ‘how much are you making?’ or ‘How much money do you get from selling the book?’
Well I want to just say to the people who have asked those type of questions, I do not care how much money I’m making.

Writing is a hobby, I just love it! Writing to entertain is my dream job. I love the power and freedom it gives you. It can be hard work, but if it does it’s job and entertains my audience then job done, it makes me happy and the audience.

The reason I decided to self-publish Endurance was to get my name out there and to entertain people reading my book. My dream is to write for a living. I would love to be an author full time or/and write for TV and Film. Writing for entertainment is just incredible, whether it is writing a book or TV programme or Film. As the author/writer you create your own world, your characters, your setting, the lives of the characters, literally everything… It is as if you’re god!
The feeling of writing in your own created world is a great feeling, I get it every time I write, even if you’re not an author yourself you still get the same feeling when reading.
That feeling when you are reading your book and the surroundings around you evaporate and you enter the book. You are the character, you imagine other characters and you imagine the surroundings. That feeling is similar if not the same as when I and I’m sure others write.

Anyway, just thought I would explain my reasoning and my motives for writing. I am enjoying myself promoting Endurance and I am currently writing my next book ‘The Author’ which will be out nearer to the end of this year.

And I would just like to finish by saying to YOU out there, not just to the many aspiring authors and writers like me, but to everyone and anyone who has a dream of any kind, don’t let anyone try to change or ruin your dream. You fight for it. Go out there, be noticed, be singled out. You are responsible for making your dream happen. It’s easier to let your dream disappear than for it to actually happen. Prove the doubters wrong, it will make you stronger and hungrier for what you want to achieve. That is what has spurred me on even more, the doubters out there. Make everyone who truly cares about you proud and prove those negative, worthless, bitter people wrong.

Last thing (I promise) don’t forget,ย Endurance is FREE on Amazon for Kindle download.ย That ends today though so go get your copy now!

Happy reading ๐Ÿ™‚

Coco told me to tell you WOOF WOOF… Which translates into.
‘Buy this book. It’s truly amazing. It will keep you guessing through out. I’m reading it and although I’m a slow reader cause I’m a dog, it’s such a good story, I would give all my bones to have it!’
