That Self-Publicity Thing

Posted on: May 4, 2011

As Al (Mr Pacino to you) and I have often concurred – when we’ve found ourselves doing workshops in the same school, hovering around the edge of the staff room, waiting to be given our complimentary 20p pieces to use in the teachers’ coffee machine – textual analyses and theoretical discourses on the creative process are all very well, but the reason a writer starts a blog is to spread the word about his or her own work so that the kiddies don’t starve. So with apologies for the sweat-mizzled air of self-aggrandisement, here are a few links to discover more about my writing:

I’ll start with a note about the Flax#023 e-chapbook, The Prisoners & Overnight. A few weeks ago, I posted a link to a site, Word Power, offering this publication for sale, alongside the partner chapbooks from Sarah Dobbs and Ian Seed, published at the same time by Flax. This has not been authorised by Flax and indeed if you try and purchase the download, you’re charged £2.99 for postage and packing. Given that it can be downloaded for free from the Flax site, that’s not great value, unless they propose to send you the computer they’re using, in which case fill your boots.

So to find this latest publication, the only place to go at the moment is HERE where it’s free to download as a pdf and you can also download a reader. And while you’re there, take a look at my Flax author’s page. The Flax Singles chapbooks will be available via Amazon and iBooks in the coming weeks so watch this space.

And I also blog HERE as may1366

Lastly, my static website which I’ll be re-developing over time into a more streamlined portal for all you sci-fi buffs.

That’s it for now – more chat about cafes and stories next post…
