Taiko drumming at Mugenkyo Taiko' dojo near Glasgow
On the day that Scotland goes to the polls, I’ve decided to make my voice heard again.
First of all, ‘hello’ to everyone who has kept reading my blog (over 500 of you) and downloading 300 copies of my ebooks over the past two months.
I did not intend to maintain online silence for such a long period of time but I needed to take time out to complete a series of poems for my next collection.
The first batch are now with a prospective publisher so fingers crossed and thank you once again for bearing with me.
I have to admit it was not all work and no play over the summer. I did reward myself with a week’s vacation in Lanzarote last week to chill out before reconnecting with the world.
Whilst scanning the hotel’s bookshelves for something to read I had the good fortune to stumble across a new author, Rebecca Gable, whose book ‘Das Spiel der Konige’ enabled me to while away a few pleasant hours in the shade.
Rebecca may be new to me but she has published many an historical novel in both German and English. If you enjoy reading historical fiction you can find out more about her at
Today is not only the day that Scotland decides its future, it is also ebook day. So, if you are looking for something new to read, please checkout my author page at where you will find four poetry and two prose titles free to download.
P.S. The photo at the start of the post shows me learning Taiko drumming at Mugenkyo taiko’s dojo just outside of Glasgow where I went to research this traditional Japanese skill for my historical fantasy Zipangu, Year of the Dog 1274: The Second Wave.
