I’ve shared so much of my writing journey with you and I wanted to give you a quick update. After The Summer of Madness and Illusions, Delusions I’ve been working on my third book. It will be seven short stories, although very different to last time as they will be slightly longer and more character driven.
The above photo was for on recent birthday. My family gave me the surprise of printing a special design onto my cake.
I was keen to do a bit more promotion for The Summer of Madness so I decided to use Rachel’s Random Resources. I’d really recommend her services. I’m so grateful to everyone who agreed to review it and I could happily quote them all. But here are just a few.

Belated happy birthday 🎂..all the best for your work 👍
Thank you. I’m on the final story but still need to do the editing and then proofreading. I’m very excited about the project though.
My copy is in the mail. Looking forward to reading it. Love your birthday shirt!
I can’t wait to hear your take on it. I’ve already started yours 🙂
happy birthday, a double celebration –
Thanks. I got super lucky with the weather on the day. It felt like the last day of Summer. Looking forward to readng all my new books too.
Happy birthday. I love the concept of a book filled with short stories. I thin the art of writing and reading short fiction is coming back into style.
Thanks, I’ve always been a big fan of short stories. They’re what first got me into writing and I love the precise writing and sharp endings you find in good ones.
Happy belated birthday! That’s a wonderful gift from my family, definitely very personal and fitting!
Congrats on all these book reviews, what a great way to get the word out there.
Thanks. The weather was perfect on the day. It was a lot quieter than usual but I really liked my gifts, the day was nice and the cake was wonderful.
Belated Happy Birthday 🙂
Thanks so much Leyla. Have a wonderful weekend ahead 🙂
Happy birthday dear friend! Love the tshirt! Is the new book available for purchase now?
I have a Whole Lotta Love for that shirt too. The book isn’t out yet but it’s getting there.
Was it a good birthday? Hope so. Looking forward to reading your new collection!
Quieter than usual for obvious reasons but still a great day. You wouldn’t believe how lucky I got with the weather too. Felt like the last day of Summer.
Happy to hear you enjoyed a beautiful day my friend!
Sorry I missed your birthday Alex but happy belated wishes anyway. Great cake idea. I never thought we’d be going from Spring to Autumn in nearly all lockdown, for a writer I’d guess it gives you lots of time to concentrate on that task? How do you stay motivated?
Oh no worries at all. It was a very quiet one. Well I had already started writing on the third one so it made things easier on that score. But I really did miss the freedom of going out for a walk to clear my head, as well as not going out and seeing everyone. Like with your singing on the balcony idea, you just have to adapt and find a way 🙂
Great picture! Congratulations Alex 🙂
Aww thanks Emma. I’ve finished the stories for the third one now so just about getting it to the net stage. Can’t wait to release it.
Is it released yet?!!! 🙂
Expect an announcement within a few days 🙂
