It has been a summer of deep reflection for me spent in England and sometimes France. And during this period I entered a period of forced abstinence from all the social media sites to allow me to look at the world from a different angle without having to explain myself as my thoughts came together. And so the posts here have been absent; for that I apologise.
Apart from reflecting, which of course is an interesting but finally worthless exercise, I have worked through both of my novels again and made some major revisions. On this blog I have attached the revised first chapters of each and I encourage you all to read and send me your opinions. I suppose in all over fifty people have by now read the books and I am really encouraged by their views. Of course some of the observations have caused changes in the text but all my readers (who are not just family. My hairdresser today was really interested and so I have just emailed her a copy) have said they really enjoyed the reads. And that has encouraged me.
Now of course the focus has returned again to getting them published. I have written letters to many, if not most of the literary agents in the UK and their tardiness in replying, if even with a rejection, is depressing. But I soldier on and I am well now into the third novel. The working title is “Fat Phil and the GSA”. I am sure however that will change as the work takes more shape. Each day the story and characters are becoming clearer and I can see, almost, through to the end. When it is all clear I will post more details here.
If any of my readers is or has contact with a literary agent please point them towards me. The effort of publishing is a strain I want quickly resolved.  I now have  an email address attached to this site.  I have attached the details.
I will start blogging again soon and I will again comment on the world as it appears to me. I hope my observations will be off-beat and sideways but mostly enjoyable. See you all soon!
