DEAR readers, we've been warned by administrators this website and its free reading might be affected by closure of Google+ but technicalities they outline are too complicated for simple retired journalists. Changes may occur from April 2 over which we have no control.
We're hopeful this will only affect marginal details of this site dedicated to popular, uplifting fiction and memoir and run by retired journalists tired of all the bad news we daily consume. As usual, we rely on your interest around the world as well as some purchases from our Books page to maintain this non-profit-making venture. However, bearing in mind the approaching significance of April 1, who knows? In case of disruption, we suggest you Follow By Email (see bottom of right-hand column). You can also use our email firstname.lastname@example.org for contact. We enjoy hearing from readers so don't hesitate!
A new Sam Stone book (see front and back covers above and right) is available on Kindle and first chapters coming soon to our site's pages, all regularly updated. A paperback version, published by FeedAread.com sponsored by the British Arts Council, will be published very soon and available here, from FeedARead or booksellers including Waterstones.
This blog was started at the encouragement of friends when Roy retired in 2010, though he has returned to writing a column (also carried on this website) for the Fylde coast's daily paper. We express ourselves through writing and share our wonder and joy at life, as well as inevitable but often amusing setbacks. Hopefully, this coming April Fool's Day will not prove to be one of those . . .
Wherever you are, you can reach others through reading as well as writing,
Let's keep this a story with a good ending!
