Worked in computer systems and security at a large bank for what seemed like forever, but eventually completed his tunnel, and escaped to follow his passion for the written word. And then the world shut down. He hasn't noticed yet.
And what he does now
Writes a variety of different genres, including young adults (YA), gothic horror, satirical science fiction, travel, general satire, and ghost stories.
He is actively helping a number of authors with editing and formatting works in paper and e-book format, and was Submissions Director for a small US publishing house.
He runs the Inca Project, a small group of talented writers, who are struggling to get their works recognised. We mutually support each other, to keep the quality of self-published works as high as possible.
The sixth book in the satirical Dan Provocation series is nearing completion. Hoping to have that ready in August 2020. Self-isolation does have its advantages.
Publishing and Printing
A seamless way of producing and selling books outside of the conventional methods has been tested, and works rather well. A small batch of high quality books can be generated for less than £100, possibly affordable to the struggling author, to give away as samples to libraries, bookshops, your granny etc. Ankerita has been generated via this method in hardcover, and a few copies are for sale from this site, if you want to see what to expect.
