My add campaign
On FB has just finished !!
Thank you for all your support

My book
‘Bleeding Ink’
Will be ready
By the first of the year
And available
For purchase
Online
I’m self publishing
This baby

Which means

I need you guys !!
Seriously
talk
share
To write things
In notebooks
And on hands
Hell,plagiarise even

It’s all marketing
Help me push this thing
Through social media
It’s nothing without
You-the reader.

So thanks for all you do
And have done
You are awesome.

And one other
Thing

‘Haunted October’

This is short stories
Fit for the season

The one about books

Now you can like me on fb
Like and share
Email me for booking photography,
Which I absolutely love
And incidentally
Inspires me to write as well

In addition
And
This is a secret
So I didn’t tell you…
But
I’m also
Working on a book
This will be my first
So…I guess
You have something to look forward to.

Thanks so much for your support
You all have been so great.
And I always love hearing from you.

Meanwhile in Alabama

No matter what we do
Or say
How hard we may try.
Between football season
This is really all we have
For front page news

People
Getting drunk
And realising they need more beer
So they steal a horse
Ride over to the local store
To steal some more

This is the kind of things
We pretend only happen in television

Well done Or well said ?

We say we want to see the world
We say we want to change
We say we want to grow
We say we want love
We want
Want
I

But if I gave you an immigrant
Instead of France
What would you do ?
Would you listen for a story ?
Would you let that sink in ?
Or would you judge them ….

We love characters like Jean Valjean
But judge real ex cons

We want love
Without knowing what it is
We want a one in a million kind of girl
Who wants us to build her a world
And miss the once in lifetime woman
Because she requires us to earn a place in a life she’s already built

We are missing it

What if I told you it’s not in what you say, but in what you do ?
What if I told you our world is about to change ?
Judging people …
Leaving people..
Self righteous
while we’re being filed away and categorized by our GOV
We are the fool

Let love break you
Let life shake you
Let it touch you
The people
The faces
The leaving
The heartache
If only
So that you may know
That you can survive

We want it all
But maybe it’s right here
A little at a time
Pieces
Capable of changing us
Look for the people
The hearts
Not the world
Not the tour
Not the vacation

We say we want …
But I’m afraid
We’re afraid of all the wrong things
We are afraid of what we don’t know
And trust what we’ve been told .

People
The ones you love
The ones you see everyday
Right here
Right now
How many faces do you see?
How many do you know ?
that’s what we have
That’s all we ever have
And tomorrow
Tomorrow the life we knew
it might all be gone
Will you be Jean Valjean
Or will you be something else

Something new

I’m going to try something NEW
Starting tomorrow
I’m going to start taking
Post it notes
Or maybe something else ??
Anyway
I’m going to make
the smallest
Lines, Thoughts
That I can fashion
I might even quote something to get started
But I REALLY want to try it
I’ve always wanted to do a typewriter series
Of sorts
But seeing that I – do not – HAVE – said typewriter
I thought this might work better in the long run
To form and fashion
a simple yet meaningful word
It’s worth a shot
