Biography

Everyone's a writer at heart, whether it's an email to a friend or fully fledged book, we all love to express ourselves in one way or another. For me, writing is a way of exploring ideas, developing concepts. I grow as the characters in my books grow. I hope you enjoy them.

Smashwords book reviews by Peter Cawdron

  • Smashwords Book Marketing Guide on July 09, 2011

    Everyone's heard of the guy that wrote an overnight best seller. Mark Coker, though, show how reality is far different. Even for the "overnight sensation" there would have been months/years of toil, doing the small things, pushing their wheel barrow slowly up what seems like an insurmountable hill. For a first time author like myself, this book was a great introduction into the hard-yards of marketing. I've started a blog, tried to tap into social media and will keep these simple keys in the forefront of my thinking as I tried to peddle my wares. To all budding authors, be sure you realise... writing is only half the story :)
  • Science Fiction Adventure Magazine - May 2010 on July 09, 2011

    An interesting read, particularly to see some emerging sci-fi themes in the sample chapters, but the formatting doesn't always come out well on the Kindle. I enjoyed the speculation around evolutionary selection pressures on mankind moving forward. As noted in the magazine, for hundreds of thousands of years selection pressure has come from diseases like smallpox and environmental/competitive pressures but these have all ground to a halt in the last century!!! It is fascinating to think about what shape natural section will take for homo sapiens moving forward. I won't spoil the possibilities put forward, but I will add that some of these are fleeting in terms of evolutionary time but that may not mean they're not influential, they may turn out to be catalysts for rapid change. And then there's the prospect of artificial selection as well. All in all, it's a thought provoking concept, and that's the essence of good science fiction, something that makes us think.
  • Bob Moore: No Hero on July 09, 2011

    In a world of super heroes, the real hero has no super powers at all... this is an enjoyable, humerous, fun-filled novel speculating on the downside of super hero proliferation.
