Looking forward.

Well that’s virtually the summer over with, time for us Indies to get ready for Christmas. It’s the time of year every new e-reader will hopefully discover our books.
Over the summer I’ve been busy writing a couple of romances, A Time to Heal was released two weeks ago and is already selling well. The second romance A Time for Change is in its final editing mode and should be ready to upload to Amazon and Smashwords in a week or two.
But the most exciting news I’ve had over the weekend, is the fact that my agent has given me the all-clear to release the third thriller in the ‘Justice’ series on October 1st. I can’t wait, as this I believe is the best book in the series so far. ;-)
Then it’s back to the grindstone to write the fourth book in the Lorne Simpkin’s thriller series.

As part of #100Blogfest it's my pleasure to invite Martin King to my blog.

Standby for action! So what do you remember when you were a kid? I guess no childhood memory would be complete without your favourite TV characters. Now I’m not talking you regular ones, we are talking puppets, although to be fair you probably didn’t know that at the time.
Five... Now as you will no doubt already realise by now, I am from England. But you Americans have got a couple of puppets that were imported overseas. The Muppet Show! That’s right we got the likes Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. Then there was Animal and Gonzo, Fuzzy Bear... in fact the list goes on of a great characters. It was just a brilliant show.
Four... Just as big in cult status, but perhaps not as popular in its day due to only being shown during the day, we have Sesame Street. I don’t remember too much about it other than the Cookie monster, Burt and Ernie and of course the count. But I’m sure you will remember a lot of the others. Oh yea I’ve just remembered Big Bird.
Three... Over here we had the fantastic Rainbow with such heroes as George, Bungle and Zippy. Going back further in time we had Bill and Ben the flowerpot men or Andy Pandy, Joe 90 and Captain Scarlet.
Two... Then there was Sooty and Sweep, Basil Brush and Roland Rat. Or what about Rod Hull and Emu?
One... Thunderbirds are go!!! The greatest ever puppet creation in the world, ever –Thunderbirds.
I could go on and on about these and many other children’s greats. But the question is who do you remember?
These blogs are all about fun and sharing. Thank you for reading a ‘#100blogfest’ blog. Please follow this link to find the next blog in the series:

Another great review for Final Justice

5.0 out of 5 stars A thriller with soul, August 3, 2011
Richard Bard (Redondo Beach, CA United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Final Justice (A Lorne Simpkins thriller) (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed this sequel to Impeding Justice. Lorne is just as feisty as ever, but it's the three-dimensional properties of this character that drew me in. Her fears and vulnerabilities are a pleasant change from the stereotypical crime fighting heroines one finds in the genre'. And the Unicorn, Baldwin, is an antagonist that any reader will love to hate. The boat scene made me want to kill him myself, slowly! Excellent character development and a fitting conclusion. Well done.
