Nearly There

Not long now until my book is released. Could be a matter of hours…

This business of publishing and promoting has kept me busy beyond belief, but I still found time to put the finishing touches to another project I have been working on for a while. I won’t say much for now, but that project should be released in the next few weeks and can be enjoyed by all ages… it’ll all be revealed in time.

For now, A Lifetime is moments away.

I am amazed I managed to complete another project to be honest, although luckily most of the work had been done a few months back. To all my fellow authors out there, how did you fill the time between stressing and promoting?


“A Lifetime” is the story of a struggle. Of one man born into nothing and who fights to make his way through life, to leave the place of his birth – a place of suffering and strife – and to create a new life elsewhere. To find himself a wife, to start a family and to achieve the things he thought unachievable.

It is a story of success, loss, delight and grief; a story of what it means to have everything and what it feels like to have nothing. It is also a story of the very special bond between a father and his daughter.

  1. So how many pages does this book have? And do you have any advice for advertising and publishing books and collections of poems and short stories for a teenager(I am 14 years old,will turn 15)

    • The book will only be about 30-40 pages long.

      It is difficult at that age to know if you are ready for publication. I started writing when I was just a bit younger than you and continued for fifteen years, improving day by day but still thinking I was ready each step of the way. On the plus side, if your work is publishable and ready now, you’ll be an incredible writer by the time you hit your thirties.

      Try and market through Facebook and Twitter for now, sell to your friends, family and acquaintances. If that works out, it’ll put a few pennies in your pocket and help you towards bigger marketing schemes. It’ll also give you the reviews that your book needs to make a dent in the current marketplace.

      Good luck!


  2. Promoting is the pits, Of course ‘nearly there’ is now go go go, hope it is all go go going well!
