I'm keen to read some of her other work too, we really need to prepare for what's coming. Unfortunately history tends to repeat itself and we need to know Gods voice today (and listen to Him) more than ever.
I say this because of something Willam (her Brother) had been preaching, long before the German occupation (10 years earlier actually). How a cancer was coming upon the land like no other had ever been before.
He was warning the people (of the pending holocaust really) and many simply laughed. Hmm . . ISIS comes to mind right now? (less)

In fact both practices use different parts of the brain!
If I come up against a brick wall while creating and am not sure where to go, then I usually switch my brain into 'Edit mode,' and go back and tidy things up, change things around etc.
I find that that is all I need and then I can mentally carry on creating afterwards. Works for me!
Oh, by the way a wee bit of advice . . . NEVER edit as you create, that in itself could very-well be the reason you are getting 'Writers Block!'(less)

Another AUDIOBOOK finished! Want to win a copy?

Ok all of my fans (which isn't many, at the moment :-( . . . sad face) I have a very simple competition for you all, whereby you can win the latest AUDIOBOOK I've just finished narrating . . . 'Titanic Revisited.'
It's a love story with a difference, and it's based in some factual evidence of what happened on the night of APRIL 14th 1912. When the TITANIC - the ship of dreams, slipped under the... Read more of this blog post »

Ian King Ian’s feeling disappointed! I know how many of my eBook ‘Origins Halloween’ have been downloaded, but I’ve only had 1 review! :( (Thanks John:)) So here’s a deal, not to be repeated! Go to http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/... and download it for FREE with coupon FT76S. If you review it on either Smashwords.com or goodreads.com/dotandtittle (good or bad, any review will do!) before 1st Dec then I will put your name in the draw to WIN the CD of ‘Origins Halloween’ AND my softcover book (a real book!) ‘Under the Ocean.’ NB a review in both places gets you TWO entries! Even if it’s the same review.
2 sets (maybe 3!), will be drawn on 2nd Dec, just in time for Christmas! Come on guys, what ELSE can I do? I’ll send the items to the winners throughout the globe! Please – I need some lovin’ REVIEWS!
Here’s the trailer http://vimeo.com/107773981
