Happy Blogging Birthday To Me!

birthday1Woohoo – my blog is now officially 1 – where’s the cake and candle? I was always rather dubious about starting a blog; why would anyone be interested in what i had to say? At the time, i was an unpublished author, and just one out of the masses starting a blog. But i stuck with it, and thankfully, people keep on coming back. I’ve made a name for myself amongst indie authors and independent publishers, who contact me for interviews and possible book reviews.

I’ve made many friends along the way, and kept in touch with some pretty talented and great people. I’ve learnt new strategies, writing techniques and possibly more important, things about myself since starting this journey, and i wouldn’t be where i am today without the support of my new writing friends and readers.

As a thank you, and to celebrate of course, starting from tomorrow June 14th – June 18th 2013, my latest book The Caseworker’s Memoirs will be free to download from the many Amazon pages around the world. Getting this novella for free is a steal bargain – but i would say that wouldn’t i? And besides, if you love it (which i really hope you do) you may be inclined to buy the paperback to keep forever, and treasure forever!

If The Caseworker’s Memoirs is new to you, here is the blurb along with some of the things people have been saying about it:

Malcolm was losing touch with the world; a retired counsellor and recently widowed, he lived each day sat at his desk, watching the world pass him by. That’s until his daughter gave him a leather-bound notebook. She encouraged him to write about times long past that he shared with his loving wife, but as dreams of his previous patients take hold of him, he has no choice but to share his experiences and thoughts.

This is Malcolm’s attempt to rid himself of his pent-up guilt, his emotional involvement with his former occupation, but perhaps most of all, his attempt to have a purpose in life.From the rational fear of heights to the peculiar fear of time, from the obsessive fear of terrorism to the psychological ignorance of homophobia, The Caseworker’s Memoirs is not only a tale of one man’s grief, but also the tale of seven other people that are affected by real phobias. This is a modern contemporary drama that will pull on the heartstrings as well as capture your imagination.


THE CASEWORKER’S MEMOIRS demanded my undivided attention … It is one of the most The Caseworker's Memoirs - Preview copy 2gripping books I’ve read in a long time. The author has a huge talent for suspense; he knows just how long to linger on the intrigue and keep his reader fascinated.” – Alison Jack, Author of Dory’s Avengers

I found The Caseworker’s Memoirs a wonderful read. The characterisation used is perfectly balanced with the detail needed to care about those concerned. When I finished reading this book late last night, it left me smiling; quite an achievement from a book with such serious content.” – Words of Wisdom Blog

The Caseworker’s Memoirs is quite a sombre, pensive read as it deals with issues of mental health and grief, but it is also quite hopeful as well as Malcolm shares his reflections. Having studied a psychology based degree I found this study of phobias and human emotion extremely fascinating. Phobias aren’t an issue widely covered in literature so I thought that this was overall a refreshing and thought provoking read.” – Bookshelf Butterfly Blog
