New Vlog: Little White Lies

As you may know, yesterday was National Poetry Day in Britain, and, as per usual, I wrote a poem about this year’s theme, ‘truth.’ My poem is live in my poetry collection on wattpad, entitled ‘Bad Poetry You probably never want to read,’ as well as on a different post on this blog. Alternatively, if you would like a bit of performance poetry, or are too lazy to read, you can watch my latest vlog, which is about the poem. There it is, below this text…

New Vlog: Islands of Hope

I don’t vlog very often, but one issue that has stopped me is the sound and picture quality of cameras. It seems I was missing the trick of actually using my phone, which has better quality in both areas. So, I thought I would read everyone the first chapter of ‘Islands of Hope’ so as to get a new vlog out. Hope you like it, and remember, you can read ‘Islands of Hope’ on wattpad. Any feedback (or votes!) would be greatly appreciated.

New Vlog – I Grew A Beard

It has been some time since I have done a vlog, but here’s a new one for you. I thought about reading some of my poetry before, but have been experimenting with different ways of recording since my compact camera broke. Most recently I borrowed a digital video camera but, as you can see from the vlog, the sound levels are not great. Can’t I just get a cheap camera with good quality video and decent sound levels? Apparently not! Anyway, turn up your volume to max (you’re going to need that volume!) and enjoy the poem. Oh, and I hope you enjoy the intro thing I created too.

If you want to read any more of my poetry you can on wattpad in my collection ‘Bad Poetry You probably never want to read.’

New Vlog: A Close Shave with Destiny

Vlog – More World Cup Dreams

I said I would do more vlogs about World Cup Dreams as we head towards the World Cup in Russia. It is now less than two weeks away and we are deep into friendlies and final team announcements in preparation for the event. So to promote my book and help you prepare for the World Cup, here is my second vlog about World Cup Dreams. This time I am reading the flash fiction ‘Too many clichés?’ Remember that World Cup Dreams was a challenge I set myself during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. I decided to write a flash fiction or poem for every day of the World Cup. You can watch my reading below, under the video are links to the free and paid for versions of the book…

Vlog – World Cup Dreams

It is less than a month to the World Cup, to say I am excited is an understatement. However I am also reminded of the challenge I set myself four years ago, to write a flash fiction or poem every day for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and the subsequent book, World Cup Dreams, which I produced. I have been thinking for a while of recording some vlog posts as a way of sharing some of my writing. Then I realised, what a great opportunity, I can promote my book by reading one of my favourite entries and it is topical because Russia 2018 is almost upon us. So here is it, my first vlog. The links you need to purchase the Extra Time Edition or download the free edition are below the video. Hope you enjoy it.
