Postal Deliveries

Here is a blog I would like to share with you. There is so much to read, much of it humorous, or at least, ummm, what’s the word? Whimsical! Yes. Anyway, this is just a heads up to let you know that there is a lot of interesting reading going around, so have a look…

Here is a blog I would like to share with you. There is so much to read, much of it humorous, or at least, ummm, what’s the word? Whimsical! Yes. Anyway, this is just a heads up to let you know that there is a lot of interesting reading going around, so have a look here.  https://ja2da.com/2018/09/28/location/ 

Sadly I won’t be posting this link to facebook- because I no longer have a facebook account. It’s got a bit scammy and hateful recently. (But that’s my opinion and those who stay on facebook are probably quite happy there and not so thin-skinned.) Anyway, have a look at this lovely blog site. It’s a wordpress site too! All the better to promote!

If any of my old facebook friends are here, come over to see us and join the group at MeWe. The same old group ready to promote your books, blogs, wips, etc. Oh! Yes, MeWe. Here’s a link to my writers page where you can join me ex facebook! https://mewe.com/group/5b149fb7a5f4e551861bc20f 

If you like the blog, jump on over to David Ford’s page on MeWe and let him know. You can find him at AUTHORS AND EDITORS here. https://mewe.com/group/5acd2904a5f4e578700ba657/profile/5b747ce440816c113f87dd4e

Now, that is another thing I must say about MeWe! There are HEAPS of books and writers pages. If you are a reader, or a writer it’s a good place to be. None of the silly rubbish about posting your book covers with a nipple showing either! It’s really very good.

There are however a few things you should know. MeWe is free with a huge amount of features, but, like everyone they have to make money. I asked them how they do this and received a very quick and well considered answer. The format is what they call ‘freemium.” Here’s the text of the email I received from Laura. Honestly speaking I think it makes good sense. NO spying on you. NO selling of your data.

Perhaps I should say that Mark Zuckerberg is a billionaire for one reason. He is in the people trafficking business. YOU are the product, and YOU are being exploited for every cent he can make from you piece by piece. Is this the world you want to live in? Really? Your private and personal information sold off to government and private enterprise? Anyway, rant over. Go over and have a look at David Ford’s blog and enjoy a few minutes over a cup of coffee or tea, (or your favourite tipple.) Then come and see us on MeWe and join us. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to stay. (I will be the first to say that it’s a bit quiet there just now, but as people flow over, as people realise that facebook is simply scraping your personal details, then I am sure it will grow faster than ever.)

To all my facebook friends, take care. Hope to see you soon.

What do I call myself? A novelist? A journalist? Writer on demand? Copywriter? Ghostwriter? Poet? Is there a single word to describe all these things? if anyone knows one please tell me. I started out life as a journalist after my service time in the RN. I was 22. My love then was music writing, contributing articles to most of the pop/rock magazines of the time. As time went by I ghostwrote biographies for celebs, wrote novels, and made a general living from writing everything from love letters to translating menus in China to acceptable English. I have written greetings cards, manuals, How to books on so many subjects I forget. My living has been as a writer on demand. So, my blog is an eclectic collection of HOW MY BRAIN WORKS. Recently I started writing blogs for company blogs. In my retirement I find myself writing more, about more subjects than I ever covered as a roving journalist. I ask myself why having reached the age of leisure why I am now busier than ever before! My last novel, The Girl From Kosovo has led to a second, which will be in your bookshops next year 2019, and my new anthology of shorts with the title Picking Up Peas With Chopsticks has just been uploaded as an ebook. (It's a pot boiler so don't expect a print version any time soon.) If you have a blog, or a job to offer, I'm an obsessive researcher and turnaround time is fast. Yes, I know, I'm a HACK. A writer for money. A gun for hire. But hey... we all have our failings. Thanks for calling in. Feel free to chat and comment. I'll even get back to you with a thank you note!
