Talk Talk

This is the final mastered version of a song I just wrote and I’d love your feedback – what do you think? It is called Talk Talk… Talk, talk Talk, talk Talk, talk Talk, talk A talking head A constant stream But in my head Is anyone listening? Talk, talk Talk, talk Talk, talk Talk, talk How fitting To see your name in print Fame always eluded you Now you are a household name How very apt To see you truly succeed Talk, talk Talk, talk What Your fame came too late Posthumous recognition Are you watching from some other place? Is there a smile upon your ghostly face? You chased and fought daily How bloody eerie Talk, talk Talk, talk likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

Come Down

So here is a new song… The Sun is out today Shining like the star that it is Even I could never say That life is wasting away Come down to me Be the person you aim to be Come down to me Let me touch, let me see The Moon is in the sky Reflecting the light of life I look and I stare But in the end, I’m cannot care Your are my Sun and the Moon You are the stars that shine You are the one that came to stay Never to leave me anyway Come down to me Be the person you aim to be Come down to me Let me touch and let me see likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

10,000 Books Sold

For the last 16-months, I have been tracking sales of most of my books. Not all, as I can’t access the information in some instances in timely fashion and in the case of one publisher – not at all. However, I have definitely now surpassed 10,000 books sold. Quite a staggering number for something that is really a hobby on the side. I am currently moving 6-10 Kindles a day and 100 audiobooks a month not to mention paperbacks etc. My best seller is now Your Haunted Lives and it has managed more than 2000 sales to date. Not far behind are My Haunted Life Too and My Haunted Life. Thanks to all who have purchased any of my books…. hopefully it will be 20,000 soon! likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

There Is A Reality Creation Battle Going On

We live in a co-created reality and as a result, what you think and what emotion and imagination you put behind that thought, creates your reality and co-creates the reality we live in. I’m not going to defend that statement here as I have discussed it at length in many other blog posts and books. What is important is that there is a big battle going on and it is messing with your head trying to get you to cooperate and form a particular reality. As a result of the internet and social media, it is a huge battle because it is easier to influence now than ever before. We used to live in a controlled world. We consumed our information from a few sources and those sources were controlled.

Three Things That Sell Books – And It Isn’t Content

Nope. Content doesn’t much matter it seems. If you want to sell books here are the three most important things by a mile… 1. Cover. The cover is what will make your book stand out from the crowd. A good book cover is worth its weight in gold. 2. Title. Yep – title is important so think it through, experiment with it and include lots of juicy key words. 3. Description. How you set up the book is important too – write a compelling description and fill it full of keywords as well. Consider using a list of contents and/or endorsements. So what does this mean? It means people buy books based on cover, title and description… Once they have purchased the book, content is more important but to get

She’s Out There

I finished the second song in Garageband. It’s an old tune that I wrote in around 1979 called She’s Out There. I have got a bit better with Garageband now but am still learning how to use it properly. Anyway, here it is. likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

The Supernatural Czech Republic

I just issued a new book on Kindle and shortly to be a paperback too. It is called The Czech Republic – The Most Haunted Country in the World? It’s definitely a good choice for a Halloween read… Here are a few abridged stories from it…. The Devil’s Bible A few years ago, I had the opportunity to see this strange document first hand, as it was on display outside of Brno. In fact, what I saw was a copy of the original. Nonetheless, the effect was chilling. The Devil’s Bible or Codex Gigas is 36inches tall by 20 inches wide and about 9 inches thick. It contains a set of Christian texts including the Bible. It is bound in leather with metal trim and weighs over 165 pounds. It

I Feel an Album Coming On

Recently, I bought a new guitar. Then, I bought a way to record it on my iMAC and then finally, I bought a microphone…. I am now engaged in a project to record a bunch of songs I wrote and often performed back in the 1970’s and early 80’s along with a couple of newer songs. Not sure what people will make of my indulgence but I am having fun! One thing I discovered is that my voice is no longer very powerful and I no longer can hit the notes so well….. However, here is the first track – I may re-record the verse vocals at some point but for now, I’m sort of OK with this. It’s called Waitin’ For You and I wrote it in a room

The Ghosts of The Czech Republic

My new book – The Czech Republic – The Most Haunted Country in the World – was released yesterday in Kindle format. There was a slight snafu and I had to remove the photos unfortunately but it is now out. The paperback version is in progress and it WILL include my photos….. An audiobook version is planned though it might be me doing the reading as there are too many Czech words and locations in the book for someone unfamiliar with the language to pronounce…. (and listening to GPS instructions from an English voice mispronouncing everything has put me off not getting it right for life…) The book is a mixture of myths, tales, legends, ghost stories, haunted locations and scary places. It should make for a good Halloween read
