Pick of the week

I am honoured that my new release Abigail Cottage has been named Pick of the week by thriller writer Lorrie Struiff

Check it out!!

Abigail Cottage

When Abigail falls in love with Justin she can’t begin to know the world of hurt she is heading into. Gorgeous, kind, rich – he’s the man we all dream to meet. BUT, all is not what it seems because Justin is a true demon from hell, disguised as a mortal being. He wants her and will do, kill or maim anyone who tries to stop him. Namely Shaun the real hero, who wants Abigail more! So what does a mortal man do against a demon? He enlists the help of a gypsy of course. But not any old gypsy. Rosa knows Justin very well and has the powers of the spirit world on her side to fight him. Using crystals as a powerful weapon, the light of the spirit world to lead them, they embark on a battle with the whole of the underworld. Many loved ones will lose their lives. This isn’t a book where everyone survives. In real life, bad things happen. In Abigail Cottage, terrible tragedies occur too. Believe... not every story can have a happy ending.

Good morning. I have Julius Thompson in the author chair today and over a cup of tea and a rather nice carrot cake, he will be talking about his frustrations when it comes to writing.





Frustration!

That is how I feel as I try to carve out time to write my novels. After teaching high school English classes all day and then doing essential things around the house it is almost 11:00 PM.
My creativity is ignited sixty minutes before the midnight hour.
That is good and bad, because for me I'm at my most creative late at night. When I start to write, time really speeds up and when I realize it is past midnight.
I have to be up at 5:45 AM to start the work day cycle all over again.
What's a writer to do? When at midnight you feel as if a pint of adrenalin has been shot into your veins.
Without a doubt late night feels like 9 a.m.
I’m a child of the sixties and when I put on my earphones with the Delfonics, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, Mary Wells, Wilson Pickett, the Drifters and the music of the Sound of Philadelphia, the ideas start to flow. My minds eye is filled with the visuals.
When writing parts of A Brownstone in Brooklyn, I was so deep into the fictive dream that I would look at the clock and it would be 4:00 am. I had written over 2,000 words.
My alarm clock was set for 5:45 am. No way was I going to get up and attempt a full days’ work on less than two hours of sleep.
I just called in and took the day off. I slept for a while and then edited all day.
And at the same time on the next night, 11:00 p.m., I was ready for a great night of writing but I would come up with only one sentence. That’s why it’s an art, not an exact science. When the writing muse hits you, you’d better take advantage.
It’s just another peril of the frustrations of the nightlife of writing.




About Ghost of Atlanta:
In The Ghost of Atlanta, Andy Michael Pilgrim faces demons from his youth that haunted his life. These are the ghosts in the crawl spaces of his life; some are real and some supernatural.
After landing a job with The Atlanta Defender, Andy returns home and visits the place where he finally faces remembrances of his deceased abusive father. While walking around the grounds, he meets his mysterious cousin, Joe Boy, and finds out that the property is going to be sold by unscrupulous cousins.
While Andy fights this battle, he must confront the personal demon of a possible drug addiction, breaking the color barrier at the south’s largest newspaper, The Atlanta Defender, meeting his old girl friend and fighting the lingering effects of segregation in small-town Georgia life.
As the story unwinds, all these forces push Andy toward the breaking point, where he almost quits on life. Malevolent mortal deeds are committed and Andy could be next in line.
"The Ghost of Atlanta" is, overall, a superbly written book. 5 stars!~Readers Favorite
