Journal of the Wanderer - The Hunt at Saditz
The principality of Saditz is, in the main, a wooded territory, covered almost entirely by forest. Thus my progress was slow, for many of its roads were myriad and winding, lost in the shadows of the woodland. Many times, I suspected I had crossed my own path, looped over my course and utterly lost my way amongst the shades, for the landscape is an obscure place, prone to mists and fogs which,...
The jungle, with all its beauty, was somehow, in a manner he could not define,...– Lilith’s Tears, Part II, Chapter II.
The Nigel Thornberry meme unnerves me..never again...

I shall not be vexed: it was not written for this age, which wants nothing but...– Horace Walpole, on The Castle of Otranto. This is the best quote I have ever read - I seriously identify with this, the kicking against cold reason, the fact that its about imagination and visions. No wonder this is one of my favourite books. Its such an unusual novel, not something that would ever...
The Travelling Circus of Lacrimosa - Chapter One
The first chapter/scene of my novel - The Travelling Circus of Lacrimosa. Act One Across the fields and through the far flung towns, Upon the horizons where sunsets frown, The shadow of a circus steals night time, But only dusk bears witness to its crime. Scene One How the carnival music played that day! The cheerful tunes of playful flutes and boisterous, merry-go round ditties spiraled...
Stop thinking what could have been: start planning...
I waited at the crossroads But could only Look back. In time, Time was marching Forward But through me, As the road fell away. I never could Reclaim the Lost.
Through the Smoke
“A dream is the smoke which swirls about us, which is us.” This morning I woke to a semi reality and peered through that smoke. “Believe me. I have peered into its gaping mouth (which was jammed full of teeth - rings and rings of teeth, each within another ring, all the way to the very centre, filling the space where there should have been a tongue, but where there was only more...
Kindle Prime Members...
…Can still get the Travelling Circus of Lacrimosa FREE on their Kindle’s for a while longer. Check out the links on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. It probably won’t be on the KDP Select thing for another period after this one ends, simply because I want it back in Barnes and Noble and the iBookstore.
Hollywood in a Year Diary #2
First of all, I have a blog dedicated specifically to this ongoing aim, its at: http://www.hollywoodinayear.tumblr.com - all the different diary entries, any videos etc will be collected there. So, week two of the plan. After last week and the excitement of deciding 100% that this is what I’m going to be aiming for this year, I have been more into actually thinking of the initial steps...
Journal of the Wanderer - Casus City
Having crossed the straits of Asingrad, I ascended the steppes until I reached a plateau, upon which the city of Casus stood. Over the course of my travels, I had grown more than a little curious of the city, for a certain mystique clings to its name, owing in no small part to the isolationist policies pursued by its government, and the fact that its people do not seem to leave its walls to roam...
