Get Down With The Awesome Awethors Event

Hello everyone,
I just want to share with you one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had.
Some of you may know that I’m only a newbie author, with two short stories out (Sharpshooter due soon) as well as operating two blogs, The Writers Emporium and Destination Gallifrey (A blog for Dr Who fans).
I have been blessed to be accepted into a group for authors called Awethors of Awesomness, and let me tell you, this group lives up to its name.
On the 12th of April the group held an event for all members,Get Down With The Awethors, let me tell you this was an absolutely incredible event.
There were cover wars contests (vote for your favorite cover, and you’ll be pleased to learn that Dinner For Two made it through to the very final few rounds).Giveaways, free guest blog posts, a chance to meet new authors, make new friends and just generally support each other.
It was an incredibly complex event to organize especially considering the different time zones involved (your humble author was awake for 48 hours in case I missed anything, I kid you not).
All this hard work and dedication was brilliantly carried out by authors DM Cain, Stewart Bint, Rocky Rochford,Lisa Veldkamp and I’m sure a slew of others too (please forgive the fact that I don’t know everyone else).
I have a confession to make (no its ok you don’t need to block the site). I’ve always suffered from an inferiority complex since childhood.
When I started my journey as an author at www.trustmypaper.com (and its only been four months) I was worried I couldn’t write, that nobody would like my stuff but my biggest fear was my peers. I was convinced they’d turn their noses up at me, you a writer, darling three very short stories does not make you an author or go back to blogging dear.
Guess what? After the 12th I no longer have that fear.
I was welcomed and supported by an amazing array of very talented and successful authors with far more work than yours truly, did only being an author for four months make a difference?
Not a bit of it!
I made a lot of new friends and the overwhelming of this event was friendship and support. Honestly people, I’m almost in tears writing this, you just cannot understand how having the friendship and support of a group of like minded people around the world can be so uplifting.
I just need to say a huge thank you to the organizers, my new author friends and you my dear reader, for letting me tell you about this marvelous event.

Mr Westacotts Christmas is now published on all E Reader platforms.

Hello everyone,
Thank you for stopping by.
Whew! what an intense few days, I spent all Saturday writing my story to Scrivener( a great writers tool.) uploading, amending, fixing typos and correcting links that didn’t work but finally, Mr Westacotts Christmas is now published on all e-reading platforms and is available from all major retailers (Amazon, Apple, BN, Page Foundry, Scribld, Tolina).  I’ve spent the last few days promoting the story as much as I can.
As I mentioned in a previous post, 20c from the sale of each story will go to help a wonderful mental health organisation here in Australia, beyond blue. Depression, anxiety and lonliness are some of the most serious health issues in the world today and anything we can do to help sufferers is to be encouraged.
Can I please urge each and every one of my readers to buy a copy (only 99c USD) and you can help even more by leaving a review to help the story gain more visibility.

My New Short Story Available This Week 23/02/15

Hello everyone,

Thank you for taking the time to drop by. Firstly I’d like to say a big Thank You to everyone who has bought/downloaded my first short story, Dinner For Two, the response has been fantastic and the good news is that Amazon has price matched it so now its available FREE on all platforms.

The other big news is my second short story, Mr Westacotts Christmas, will be published this week on all platforms. This story is quite different to Dinner and I’d probably describe it as a dark drama. Its all about loneliness and how one man copes during the Festive season.

You might be interested in how the story came about. Originally I planned this as a script for a short film. One of the organisations here in Australia that is a support for people with depression and other mental illnesses, asked sufferers to contribute any form of artwork that illustrated or encompassed their feelings about their illness or its effects. I’m not ashamed to raise my hand and admit that I’ve suffered clinical depression and acute anxiety disorder for many years. I also have a slight brain injury that affects my short term memory (but enough of the violins and flowers). I decided to write a script gather some friends and film it. Alas, the film never eventuated (but you’ll be pleased to know the contributions to the art project were many and also brilliant.) I felt the subject of loneliness and depression was too important to forget and so the script evolved into Mr Westacotts Christmas.

I hope you’ll like the story and if it touches you in any way, please, leave a review.

Finally, I’d just like to inform you all that Mr Westacotts Christmas will be followed up with a third short story entitled, Sharpshooter, which is a return to full horror. After all three stories are released Ill be releasing my collection of short stories which range from the macabe to the sinister (more on this closer to finalisation and release date.)
