Book 1 update…

A young boy sits in the dark next to candle light. He is very bored.
A bored boy.

So it’s been a while since I spoke about my first book and that’s because… not a lot has happened.  It’s out there on publisher’s desks and in the inboxes of various literary agents.  This one is my flagship book, which I ideally want to get published traditionally.  I’ve made various adaptations to it and I have listened to and taken on board some frank, constructive criticism.  It’s getting better and better each time someone in the know gives me feedback on it.  Similarly, each time I submit my book my covering letter, synopsis and personal statement is getting better and better.  Each ‘no’ represents an opportunity to improve (cheesy, I know).

STOP climate change – scorched earth

A mother polar bear looks on at her cub as they are separated by melting ice caps.
Melting.

Whilst my current book projects are ongoing and out there, I thought I’d do a picture about something that is concerning me: climate change.

I don’t mean to be preachy but is anyone else bothered by this? The stifling heat, brown grass, melting icebergs, rising sea temperatures, heat related fatalities, wild fires and extreme weather swings are concerning me more and more. The problem I believe is that not enough people think about it. Everyone needs to try to make a difference for this planet’s future; it is becoming more and more inhospitable and I’m not just thinking about humans…

No grass; no football.
