Old Fart Wannabe Blog 11 - The Plan Grows in Scope


Well a lot has been happening. At least to my sluggish system it seems a lot .
On the personal front the new eye lens is a triumph. I can see clearer than at any time since I was a child. I can’t wait to get the other one done.

On the book front I have received my ISBN’s and one has been allocated to the Axe, the Shield and the Triton,  duly notified to Neilsens, with a publication date set as the 1st July 2011. 

The application was of course through my publishing organization -doesn’t that sound grand- Wyrd Sisters Publishing. The website and e-mail addresses have been secured for this before someone nicks them.

The second title to be published will be The Axe the Shield and the Halig Rood. 
This, as it is already written as the second part of the original tome will be published shortly after the publication of the Triton

Editing for both of these is ongoing and my clever daughter has already produced the covers. So there we are. The hobby just expands through the Parkinson’s Law that if uncontrolled it will fill all available time ( 'It had better not,' says Herself).



 I just love the cover pictures. They are definitely the best part of the books and the only reason probably that anyone will click on Amazon to find out more.

The next part of the plan is to complete A215 Creative Writing and A363 Advanced Creative writing. Successful completion will achieve two things, I hope. The first is to give me the skills to finalize the editing of the above two. The second is the award of the Creative Writing Diploma.

These courses are about to start and I have been joining in with the pre-course discussions. The downside of this is that I have become aware that all of my co-students appear to have wonderful web and blog sites. These sites have great graphics and are lively and decorative. They make this site look really impoverished and so its development into something more professional is a must. I’m embarrassed.

Take care out there Folks.
