"After being turned down by numerous publishers, he decided to write for ... `Smashwords!".
- George Ade, Fables in Slang (amended - Ade's last word was 'posterity')
I started by writing poetry - but nobody read it, so I tried another of my interests: Dark Age fiction - Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and so on. I know what you're thinking (get a life!) but it's a popular niche, and I found that people were actually reading my books. I also write Science Fiction, Jane Austen sequels, all sorts of other stuff - and more poetry (poetry is like a drug for me and I can't give it up). I also write education publications, mainly study notes, which sell far more than anything else I write. Every now and then I return to my major project which is a Dark Age Pentalogy intended to be 1000+ pages long (it's a prose version of my book, Angleland, which is available in etext and paperback). I'm up to page 25 at the moment (just kidding - I have a draft of the whole thing, but it's going to take a lot more long and lonely nights to make it readable). My latest project is my Vortigern Mini-Trilogy. Ironically, it is a spin off from my Dark Age Pentalogy, though the final product will only be about 120 pages in total!
