Islands of Hope Update – 09/06/2018

Between the school reports I am writing and the vlogs for World Cup Dreams, I have actually managed to write. Posting a shorter update last week gave me more time to write something longer this time around. Now we start Chapter 21 and are back with Johanna and the continuation of her mission. She has had to leave her husband behind, can she complete the mission and get back to save him as well as Kira? Find out in next weeks exciting episode of….oh, sorry, got carried away with 1960s Batman there! Anyhow, you can read Johanna’s continuing mission on wattpad. Chapter 21 is here, or you can start from the beginning here.

p.s. If you haven’t watched the vlogs, the World Cup is nearly here, just the time to promote World Cup Dreams again. There are free and paid for versions you know. Oh look, there are the links below, how convenient…

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.

There are some big guns missing, mainly Italy, USA and the Netherlands, but brilliantly, for me at least, England have made it. As we wait for the World Cup it seems now is a good time to do a promotion, I have not done one for some time. To keep you going while you wait for the World Cup you could read World Cup Dreams: Extra Time Edition and for this weekend it will be absolutely FREE on Kindle. I would like to do a promotion on the print copy but, unfortunately, that is out of my control (paper costs money you see!). So, you can download World Cup Dreams: Extra Time Edition from Amazon in the UK here or from Amazon in the US here. It should also be free in all the other countries Amazon operates. The only thing I would really like back is a review, be it good or bad. So here’s to a summer of excellent football and, hopefully, some excellent reading before that!
