Hi all,
Just a quick one to let you know that one of my books, "Bossyboots" will be free on Amazon on the 22nd and 23rd of October.

The story revolves around a pottery factory manager who is desperate to find a new bed mate after his long suffering wife walks out on him. However, just like the problems he is having in the factory, nothing goes to plan.

If you want a good laugh and find out how one man deals with middle aged freedom, grab a freebie on the 22nd or 23rd.

The Reluctant Pom

Hi all, sorry it's been a while since my last post, but I have been changing priorities regarding any spare time that might sneak past my horizon. I have always wanted to be a decent painter and now that I'm knocking on a bit I want to give it a good shot while I still can.

I've always managed to do a reasonable drawing many of which can be seen in my pyrography work, but using paint takes more skill. I have dabbled in watercolours and oils over the years but didn't produce much of note so now I'm going to give the watercolours a real go. I have given myself a year to became competent, so if you want to follow my progress, warts and all, here is the link to my
watercolour challenge pages .

This is a picture of a lion that I painted a few years ago. It is the world's only bow legged lion so I guess improving on that effort shouldn't be too difficult.

I won't be neglecting the scroll sawing and pyrography all together, after all I am slightly addicted to the smell of burning wood, but my post on here will become less frequent.

One last thing. My book, "The Reluctant Pom" is free today and tomorrow on Amazon, so if you would like a free copy here is the Link.
 I hope you enjoy it.
