Six hours of writing this Sunday! 

Since 2pm this afternoon, I have been writing my new novel DECEPTION. I was writing for 6/7 hours!

In this time, I was able to finish Chapter 28 and get started on Ch. 29.

Ch. 28 was an exhausting chapter to write – filled with twists, dark revelations and most of all, deep and emotional conversations for the two main characters involved.


Now, after today’s progress, I’m so close to completing the first draft of DECEPTION; I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I’m extremely excited to get this book finished and published for you all to finally read. It’s been well over a year now, since I started working on DECEPTION (formerly The Dog Walk) for my Creative Writing dissertation. I’m extremely hopeful about my fourth book, and I’m really looking forward to everyone experiencing this thrilling, creepy and dark journey.

Keep an eye out over the coming months for updates on DECEPTION – I’m aiming for it to be released in the Summer of 2016. A good read for your holidays!

A Miniature Story of mine 

I’ve recently been strongly affected by something that I found out, and so I thought I would write a miniature story about it. The challenge is not to write more than 140 characters, which is a great challenge. See if you can figure out what the story is about. 

‘I’m forced to come out just twice a day, made to perform and play. 5 minutes gone, off I go, back to my lonesome cave.’

Another Miniature Story By Me

Well what can I say? I quite enjoy writing a 140 character story. So here’s my second which was published onto Miniature Story – 140story’s Facebook and Twitter pages at: http://www.facebook.com/miniaturestories

“I’m fascinated by birds. I follow them everywhere, on the streets, in the woods, and in their homes. It’s best at night when they’re alone.”

Any thoughts on this one?

Read Endurance yet?

Hello people, haven’t heard from me recently have you? Maybe you’ve enjoyed the time alone and away from me and Endurance.

Anyway, I’m back for today, been a little busy lately had work all weekend, it was boring…. As usual.
So, I have begun writing my next book, which is a horror novel about an author called Ryan Milligan so hopefully I will have that written in no time!

But first, buy Endurance. I am 1000% writing a sequel for it so if you don’t read the first you won’t be able to read the second will you? and who knows, you might really like Endurance. So far I think that most people who have read Endurance have really liked it.

So go to Amazon.com or .co.uk get it on paperback or eBook through Amazon, or Barnes and Noble or Super Book Deals or The Book Depository for paperback and get your copy today.

Great, I’ve got Exostosis

Just thought I’d put a post about my manky toe for the first time on here.

My Facebook friends will be fully aware of the ‘toe updates’ I used to do non stop. So to cut the long story short…

After playing football once, I had a really excruciating pain in my toe, I couldn’t walk on it or put any weight on it at all. So I put up with it for a month and decided to get it seen to. During this time after being in and out of the doctors, I did ‘Live toe updates’ for my FB friends to read and imagine. To be honest, it was disgusting. especially when saying that my nail was weeping, puss was drizzling out, the nail had lifted, a nail underneath began to grow, it stank, it squelched when the nail moved etc (it was more graphic than that). While describing the toe, I then went onto saying what I did to trim the manky nail down with a pair of nail scissors. Once again, I don’t think I’ll go into too much detail. I have pictures of it but… I think I’ll save them for another day…

With the doctors not knowing what it was, I tweeted embarrassing body Doc, Doctor Christian. I tweeted a picture of the toe to him and asked what it was. Within a minute of me sending the pic, he replied with a diagnosis of Exostosis (Google it). It’s some sort of Tumour in the toe (not too serious as in cancerous, just damn painful!)

So after being in and out of the local docs and seeing many docs who didn’t know what it was, it took 6 months until finally progress was made.
Went to the Podiatry Department and saw someone who actually knew what they’re doing (except Dr Christian from embarrassing bodies cause he knew). She knew what it was and confirmed that it was the tumour called Exostosis (Google it).

So now I’m waiting for X-rays and then I can have the manky nail and new nail (under the manky one) taken off and the bone underneath the nail and skin chizzled (if that’s the right word) back to normal.

So maybe this story can have a happy ending?
I know for sure that the experience may supply me new material for my books for the future, so I look forward to writing some disgusting descriptions. (Yum)

So there you go. That’s my exciting and disgusting story of the manky toe so far. I hope you enjoyed it. I think I could definitely write a novel about it… TO BE CONTINUED Will there be a happy ending?

Endurance by T. J. Blake

Hello people. Just a plea and a reminder to some, to buy my new book, “Endurance”.

A little about my book now, in case you’re not aware of it.
Endurance is a fast paced Novella, so it’s a reasonably short book (140 pages). It’s main genre is Science Fiction, dystopian, mystery and action.
It’s Full of Mystery, Suspense, Action and Gore. It’s unpredictable all the way through. London has been obliterated and the cause is unknown. Survivor Tom Williams sets out to uncover the truth.

Here’s the blurb… “London is silent. Severed bodies lie amongst the rubble. What once was a lively city is a now a murderous grave, enclosed in smoke and ash. The cause of the destruction is unknown. Left haunted and terrified, survivor Tom Williams confronts the brutal, mutilated streets as he fights to uncover the truth. Could he be humanities last hope to restore normality?”

So that’s a bit of information about my book. It’s available on Amazon as paperback and eBook. Also Barnes and Noble as a paperback. Just search ‘Endurance t.j.blake’ on the site you want to buy it on to find it. Paperback it’s £3.99/$6.33 and eBook for £1.20/$1.89. So go on, buy it.

If you decide to buy it, let me know what you think of it on here, or the Endurance Facebook or Twitter page or/and rate and review it on Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

And also, don’t forget about #mycopyofendurance.. Where you take a picture with your book or eBook of Endurance and upload it onto Endurance’s FB or Twitter page or upload it onto Intagram and hash tag #mycopyofendurance.

Ciao people. Please buy Endurance and happy reading 🙂
