Hi to all my friends here at WA, and a BIG thank you to all those who sent messages of support, it means so much to know that you are on my side. I now have to rebuild my life, ok, I'm not moaning, there's no point, it's simply a case of getting stuck in, I know I can do it, I've done it before, so you begin with taking stock of you current position, and work from there. Good luck to all of you, thanks again for your support and kindness, and I'll see you all in 3 months time. Philp.

Hi Guys, well this is a day I've been putting off for a while, as I now have to cancel my account with WA, at least for the present.

Having written JET! 18 years ago this question has bugged me many times. I once had a file folder (hard file) more than one inch thick, full of rejection slips from various traditional publishers, no doubt then, my book ended up on their slush pile among many others. In those days it was harder to publish, nowadays, all you need to do is go on to the Internet, and you'll find a glut of on-line publishers who will publish your book free! The trouble with that is that it opens a door for all writ
What's Wrong With My Book Can You Help? Having written my novel 'JET!' 18 years ago, I now have it published, and I am now trying to market it. I know it's a good book, and I'm not blowing my own trumpet here, as people who have read it said I should get it published, so I followed through. It also has 22 5 star reviews on Amazon, but it's still hasn't sold many copies. JET! Is part of The JET! Trilogy, and its genre is 'adult science fiction adventure.' I have an excellent marketer at Book Go
A little gift for all those sci-fi fans, hope you enjoy it. RED CHAPTER ONE Hearing Daniel's giggles delighted Don as he chased him around the garden, and catching him Don would scoop him up in his arms. This was the moment when Don would rag his son with a rendition of Danny Boy. ‘Dad - don’t, I’m not Danny Boy!’ he’d protest, as Don knew he would. ‘What’re you gonna do, beat me up, Eh?
