Can you see it? It took me several minutes. Good Morning & Happy Reading wherever you are today.
I am me. I am not my OCD. I am me. Can you see the real me?
Everything in Northern Ireland is ‘wee.’ Would you like a wee cup of tea? Do you know the wee woman who lives down the street? You know that wee ship, The Titanic? It was built in Belfast. It’s one of our ‘thangs,’ it’s what we do, no doubt bewildering visitors to our fair land inContinue reading “My Wee Book”
Yes, shock, horror it’s a book about the Battle of Waterloo. I’m about 100 pages, the author focusing on the accounts of the men (and women) from both sides who were present just outside a little known Belgian village called Waterloo on 18 June 2015. The carnage which followed reshaped the map of Europe andContinue reading “My Current Read”
Ryan from Colorado received this little beauty in the post the other day. Those of you who’ve been living under a rock these past few weeks might not know I’ve written a book. Well….I’ve written a book. You can check it out by clicking on the link below. Thank you to all those who haveContinue reading “Kirkwood Reaches Kolorado”
It’s pay day tomorrow and, as I’m still slightly adrift of making my first million, it’s the most eagerly awaited day of the month. Even better, it’s the weekend. We are planning a family day out, weather conditions permitting, but before then I’m looking forward to purchasing a few more books on my Kindle Fire.Continue reading “What Should I Read Next?”
Whenever people ask me what my book is about, I hmmmm and haaaaah without really giving them an adequate answer. I used to describe it as ‘Harry Potter meets Trainspotting,’ until Fionnuala told me it’s nothing like Harry Potter….or Trainspotting for that matter. Sorry to disappoint all you Daniel Radcliffe and Ewan McGregor fans outContinue reading “Can I Ask You A Question?”
Just a brief notice that normal blogging service will be resumed tomorrow after real life intervening over the last day or so. See you all then. Until then feel free to drop by my Facebook author page at the link below. Thank you all. https://www.facebook.com/StephenBlackAuthor/
I got an e-mail from my publisher yesterday to let me know the publication process had commenced. I’m hopeful, therefore, the book will be out at some point during the summer. Yes, it’s that close. Scary stuff. Various questions popped into my head so I thought I would share them with you all, rather thanContinue reading “Some Questions For You All”
The older I get, the weirder I seem to be getting. Hard to believe, I know, but true. Take my sleep patterns for example. I can’t remember the last time I experienced an uninterrupted night’s sleep. No matter how tired I am, at some point during the hours of darkness my mental alarm clock willContinue reading “Having Difficulties Getting To Sleep? Then Read This”
Today sees the start of my ‘bucket list’ challenge to re-read my favourite childhood book, ‘The Lord of The Rings.’ I purchased it on my Kindle last year with this intention in mind, but have always found an excuse not to start. Well, no more. I’m holding myself accountable to the good people of WordPressContinue reading “What Was Your Favourite Childhood Book?”
If you asked me what three items I would take onto a desert island (go on, ask me) I’d probably plump for my glasses, a lifetime supply of Diet Coke (surely that counts as one item?!) and my beloved Kindle Fire. You see, I read….a lot. And the Kindle is my way of stashing hundredsContinue reading “Stop The World….I’ve Lost My Kindle”
I’m currently reading ‘Dark Places’ by Gillian Flynn. It’s a fantastic read. Eerie, edgy and beautifully written. The twists and turns of the plot leave me none the wiser as to how the story will turn out. It ticks every box as far as I’m concerned, a real page turner. Well, it would be ifContinue reading “Where Do You Find The Time To Read?”
Happy August one and all. This looks like being a big month for me. I’m now nearing the end of the third edit of my debut novel ‘The Kirkwood Scott Chronicles – Skelly’s Square’. This has been a long road and I’m sure regular readers are sick to the back teeth of my updates onContinue reading “Beta Readers Required”
Today’s question is for all you bookworms out there. What was the last book you read and what did you make of it? To get the ball rolling here are the last few I’ve read. I read a lot much to Fionnuala’s dismay but I know that in order to succeed as an author youContinue reading “Fun Friday Continues….Even Though It’s Saturday”
