Not wishing to be mawkish butÂ for one reason or another – 2012 was a tough year for me – and 2013 is very welcome.
2013 has started spectularly well.
The first day of 2013 was remarkable.
It bagan with a party at our house that finshed in the small hours and resumed later in the day with the The Impossible beingÂ released
in the UK. It playedÂ to a full house at our local cinema while my whole family watched and loved Pitch Perfect. Some friends went along to seeÂ The ImpossibleÂ and we all convened in the foyer afterwards and headed back to my sister’s houseÂ for a much neededÂ chilli con carne.
And then in the evening,Â I published my first novel in ten years.
A Man’s Life – ten years in the writing – available now at smashwords and amazon.Â Ideally, I would include the book cover here – but my machine is not allowing me to do so. ButÂ trust me, it does exist. And I will get to this glitch shortly.
So Jan1 – son launches film and dad launches new novel. Boom!
Jan 2ndÂ is going to be a let down.
IÂ know this and I am prepared.
