Living the Dream Part 20 (Vanity)

No, this post isn’t about authors who are big-headed, although ego does fit loosely into the equation. This post contains a message that I think all aspiring authors need to hear. If you’ve kept up with recent posts then you’ll know that I’m submitting my novel, Seas of Vengeance, to publishers and agents. I’ve already … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 20 (Vanity)

Living the Dream Part 19 (The Hard Work Begins)

It happened people. It took me a long time and a tonne of edits, but it finally happened. I completed Seas of Vengeance and have officially submitted to a small selection of publishers and agents. When something takes as long as this has you often find yourself wondering if the day will ever actually arrive. … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 19 (The Hard Work Begins)

News About Dead End, A Survivor’s Apocalypse Story, and The Adventures of an Average, White Man

I have made the decision to remove Dead End and A Survivor's Apocalypse Story from Smashwords, Wattpad, and Amazon with immediate effect. In light of the recent submissions of The Escapades of William Hart: Seas of Vengeance to publishers and agents, I felt it wise to remove the abovementioned titles with a view to re-editing them … Continue reading News About Dead End, A Survivor’s Apocalypse Story, and The Adventures of an Average, White Man

Living the Dream Part 18 (Seas of Change)

It’s been a good long while since I offered an update on my writing. It’s been a good long while since I posted anything! I’m back now and I intend to stay for as long as I have material to write and publish. I think a break to collect new ideas is probably necessary in … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 18 (Seas of Change)

This is a quick post to extend my congratulations to one of my very favourite bloggers and an exceptional writer, Keri.

Living the Dream Part 17 (Words Aren’t Flesh)

The more astute of you will have noticed my absence in recent times. I’ve not quit blogging. I’d never just walk away without saying something first. No, I’ve been focussing all of my writing efforts on editing Revenge on the Spanish Main (aside from a short handwritten non-fiction story I penned recently that I plan … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 17 (Words Aren’t Flesh)

A Survivor’s Apocalypse Story now available as an eBook!

First of all, apologies for my break in posting lately. I've been busy combining playing Assassin's Creed 2 on PS4 and Football Manager on my laptop. It's not easy to do both at the same time but I've been managing it. Oh, I've also been working on editing A Survivor's Apocalypse Story to release as … Continue reading A Survivor’s Apocalypse Story now available as an eBook!

The Escapades of William Hart–A Living the Dream Exclusive!

Welcome to an impromptu edition of Living the Dream. There’s a very good reason why I’m slipping this one in. It’s done. Editing for the first instalment of my series of novels is finally complete… at least the third round of editing is anyway.

Paul.E.Bailey’s World–A Year on the Blog

A year ago to the day I clicked ‘publish’ on my first official blog post. There had been one other before that; however, that was merely a short introductory post. The first proper one was Shiver Me Timbers…Said No Pirate Ever! where I imparted everyone with a little bit of my knowledge on the subject … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World–A Year on the Blog

Paul.E.Bailey’s World–Destiny Vs Desire

There was a post recently on a Facebook fiction writers group that I’m part of. The poster asked if we thought we were inherently destined to be writers or was it more a case of choosing that path out of curiosity. A good question. It led me to ponder the question further on a grander … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World–Destiny Vs Desire
