Although I must compose more songs, I also need to do artwork for the tracks so far. Hard work, but important
A nice, heartwarming selection of reviews for my various books.
Don't forget to leave a review if you have enjoyed a book. One line is fine!
If I am going to pursue this music thing, I need to gig. And that means gear.
Getting my songs out through YouTube and ReverbNation is a lot of fun and I am beginning to enjoy the trip. But where next?
Plus, a couple of new, young artists I have come across.
There are plenty of articles teaching you how to record your audiobook from what equipment to buy to how to use it.
So, what I have done here is to take my years of experience to just give you some tips that might make your book just that bit better.
W/C 11th April - My song, The Sun Will Never Set, is being featured on the crowd picks section of ReverbNation
Sometimes falling in love is all about spending time with each other; as simple as that.
A friend suggested I write a song about a girl on an island. So I did. I wrote it about her.
Two of my songs have been chosen to be featured following great crowd reviews.
I am getting very close now to starting the job of recording series one of Dirt.
I have built my voice booth and will start sound testing in the next couple of days. If I am happy with the results, I will make myself comfortable, take a big glug of water, and go for it.
I put a couple of my songs up for review on Reverbnation the other day, then promptly forgot all about it.
Having had a bad couple of days, out of the blue the results came back. Now I am glowing!
Who are the dragons of Dirt? Why are they so very different from any other dragon in any other fantasy?
In a nice long read, I look at the dragons, talk about how they live, give a little history and tell you why they are so important to the story and to the people of Dirt.
The second series of Dirt focusses heavily on dragons, but at the centre are two incredible female characters; Silvi Farthing and Ferret.
Silvi is only seventeen, but she lives in an unequal world where women, particularly young women, are seen as second-class citizens. In this series, not only do I tell a heroic tale, but put a spotlight on inequality.

North London, 1976. The longest, hottest summer on record. The water is running out and the kids hate their parents. Which bunch of idiots would think it is a good idea to start a band?
