New Author shout out.
I stumble across this author on a Facebook book group that I belong too. I wanted to learn more about his book The Brammle Cutters Kindle Edition. I reached out to the author and he sent me a copy of his book. Below is a little information that I found about Simon.
Simon is a new author, an independent writer, who picked up his pen / began typing once the confidence to do so was given him by his closest ally (she knows who she is). He currently has 5 other stories quietly slumbering in their tiny storage receptacles along the periphery of his imagination, plus plenty of others he does not even know exist yet.
Here are a few questions that some readers asked him on his Goodreads account
How do you deal with writer’s block?
Sleep on it. Don’t despair – the feeling will come back – have a couple of days off. For me, it was even a couple of weeks in January (after the Christmas hubbub) when I’d begun to despair of even finishing the book.
How do you get inspired to write?
I have a restless imagination. Little things catch my eye & mind. Much is worth noting. Story ideas and plot lines grow like seedlings.
What’s your advice for aspiring writers?
Read lots. Enjoy the stories and then reflect on the literary techniques that have been employed. See how they all work together to create the whole thing.
Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
The earliest moment I can remember was returning home over the hill between the two main towns near us. As you crest the hill, there is a sudden view that is the moment I feel I’m nearly home (I think many locals agree). I knew I wanted that view to be part of a story. Then another time, I was fighting back the brambles that encroach into our garden from the wasteland beside us. It occurred to me that the annual battle with them was another story-worthy idea.
I am now reading it and I have to say I am only about 20% in the book and I am loving how he writes about the character and how makes them feel like they are there with you.
Once I finish the book, I will give it my honest review.
