The Clovelly Wife

The Clovelly Wife

Shipwright Martin Colwill’s apprenticeship is coming to an end . . . Married to the most beautiful woman in Clovelly and buoyed by the prospect of a partnership in his employer’s business, it should be one of the happiest times of his young life. But all is not well with the newlywed. His wife’s ardour has cooled. The village still condemns him for ditching his fiancee and then marrying her best friend. And his employer begins to have doubts about the partnership. Then the philandering, roughneck publican of the Red Lion sets his sights on Martin’s wife and his world is thrown into turmoil. Set in Clovelly in 1950, when Britain is still reeling from the Second World War and rationing remains in force, this is a story of lust, love, regret and self-discovery. More info →

Through Glass Eyes

Through Glass Eyes

Ever wondered what your car thinks about you? Or about anything else, for that matter? If so, this autobiography of a 1975 Triumph Dolomite Sprint will go a long way towards satisfying your curiosity. Wittily written, with politically incorrect sideswipes at everything from industrial relations to modern policing, the story is as much about the car's owners as it is about 'Dolly' himself. Yes, Dolly the Dolomite knows it's a girl's name, and he's suffered enough for it over the years, but that's what Roger and Sylvia call him and he's not the type to break the Code of Conduct and reveal his sex to his driver. You don't know about the cars' Code of Conduct? Then you clearly have a lot to learn - so let Dolly be your courteous, informed and entertaining guide to this hitherto secret world. More info →

The Practical Guide to Self-publishing

The Practical Guide to Self-publishing

The Practical Guide to Self-publishing deliberately sets out with the intention of covering the subject somewhat differently. It makes the assumption that the desire to self-publish is not necessarily to make money, or even to publish a physical book at all. It may simply be to produce a keepsake for a family member or an eBook for digital distribution. Its primary aim is to demonstrate the stages of a self-publishing project step-by-step. We will work through two very different projects: a Book of Memories, and a Novel In order to understand how a book is produced – be it the traditional way or by self-publishing – I will describe the publishing process from drafting, through copy-editing, proofreading, cover design, typesetting and finally, printing. The tools and skills required for such projects will be discussed, highlighting those areas you may be confident to attempt, and those you may not . . . More info →
