Sprinting To Marathon Nigel Bird Guest Post

Writing and athletics. Not things I usually link together.



I was thinking about the different skills used in longer and shorter events - the marathon and the sprint, the novel and the short story.



There aren't many sprinters out there who can turn in a good marathon time and there aren't too many middle-distance runners challenging the 100m world record. They have different muscle strengths and skill sets which mean that it doesn't work to spread the net too…

A Grand-Slam Obsession

The first time Ruth Ann Steinhagen laid eyes on Eddie Waitkus she fell in love with him. In 1946, Eddie was the Chicago Cubs first-baseman. Sixteen-year-old Ruth Ann began going to Cubs games with friends. After collecting hundreds of newspaper pictures and articles, she built a shrine to him in her bedroom and often set an extra place at the dinner table for him.

Michael Tabman new series with Trestle Press “Bad Intent”

I was really pumped to hear that an author with Michael Tabman’s background has signed with Trestle Press to do an incredible series wrapped around the world of FBI undercover work. The work is so real and authentic that before it can even be edited, it must first be vetted by the FBI itself to be sure that nothing of a secret or sensitive nature be released. As a reader that has me amped up. I am looking forward to listening to what he, Michael Tabman, has to say as he is part of the first…

Paul D. Brazill’s “Drunk on The Moon” series volume 5 with Richard Godwin “Getting High on Daisy”

Digital short stories , yeah , I love them. They are cool, quick and fulfilling. This series, “Drunk on The Moon”, has been done with plenty of plucky zest, verve, and style right from the first one by the creator, Paul D. Brazill through this installment done by Richard Godwin. “Getting High on Daisy” definitely has struck a different chord from the rest of the installments, shakes it up in ways that show the Godwin flare, and a bit of his mystique, but all in all, this series has not had a…

Col Bury starts new series with Trestle Press/Dark Pages Press

Manchester 6 focuses on the best and worst of human nature, personified in the gritty urban setting of Manchester, UK, and featuring a plethora of no-nonsense characters you’d ordinarily want to avoid.  The six stories highlight generally decent folk who become embroiled with the lower echelons of society, aka scumbags.  Whether it’s the paranoid, spliff-sucking writer who has a falling-out online, or an ex-soldier hunting a notorious gang, there’s conflict galore.  A…

What I look for in an author

I get asked a lot of questions. One of the them is, ”What do I look for in an author?” I mean really as a reader, what are the things that draw you to pick up an author’s material and become a fan, stand by them time after time, and just proclaim your loyalty for eternity? Here are some of my thoughts, the yardstick by which I measure the authors, size them up, and just say hit me, I can’t wait till I get that read of yours in my hand:

-A really cool name, something that just sticks…
