Give as you Live

I am donating to the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.
I am pleased to say that via Give as you Live I can donate funds to the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund as they have been an invaluable help to me in the last two years.
For many of you, Remembrance of the people who gave for their country comes once a year, but for many such as me, we have a daily reminder of our service days.

I have stopped writing.

There are too many reasons to list.

There are too many reasons to list why I have stopped writing short stories after eleven years. The short version is I feel my work is of no value these days. 

Another reason is that many people are going to sites that pirate my stories for free, so why should I write if you, the readers, can get weeks or months of work for nothing?
One thing I can say is that the decision does not mean I have no stories to write, only that I feel no need when all I got was $40c a month in ebook sales.

I may end this decade with a short story about Devil Worship.

For no reason, in particular, I have not written a story about Satanism before now.
In the last few weeks, as I decided to end my decade long struggle for recognition and e-book sales as a writer, I have thought several times about correcting this situation. 

Writing this style would not be far from my early days when I won praise for writing excellent ghost stories.

April Fools Day

No greater fool is there than me.
Four the last decade, I kept hoping against hope that one of my short stories would interest a publisher; the only ones I did get a reply from year scam sites who wanted me to pay for the publishing and do all the work.

The reality is I should have quit four years ago when Forgestriker how great Thou art stopped selling, but I hoped for a revival if I changed my genre; well, it did not come.

Now, I have no choice to make after another year with no sales for my e-books (my bookstore) I am forced to call it a day at the end of this month on April Fools Day as there is no greater fool than one who continues knowing he has no hope of success; in my case selling e-books on Draft2Digital.

My final e-book.

As I have decided to stop writing e-books and short stories that don't get read, I am giving the readers the option of choosing their favorite short story to be my final e-book
If you look for me on Twitter, you can read some excerpts from some of the stories for consideration as my finale, other than that there is the option for me to extend some of my earlier stories.
The choice is yours.

Global warming

The planet is cooling.
In my opinion, the effect of global warming is the planet is getting colder, not warmer.
