Stuart Chambers | 3 comments Hello,

I am kind of new to this, confident in who I am and what I do but seemingly new to the world of the self publishing and what to do and where to do it and I would therefore so very much welcome your help, support and ideas.

I have been writing for years. Writing has always been my first love. I wrote my first screenplay when I was seventeen and sold it to the BBC. I have written numerous scripts for documentaries and films and have just published my first novel, ‘The Far Out Café’ and it is now available on Amazon.

To be honest I wrote two novels prior to this one but see this as a learning curve. The first novel was called ‘The Dance of the Daemon Clowns’ and about a time traveling Russian called Nietsky - (It means - ‘No’) and please feel - free to use it as an idea. A friend of mine was a character actor and he had a friend who was a literary agent. The literary agent really liked the book but thought I would be compared to Douglas Adams (Hitchhikers guide) and Terry Pratchett (Disc world) … even though at no time had I sought to emulate either one of them. So, I wrote my second novel, ‘The Last Big Valley’ about a group of people I had actually met who had effectively dropped out of the real world and created their own at the base of a remote mountain. The idea appealed, the literary agent liked my style and my writing but not the idea - Not mainstream enough!! What is main stream I thought, not me! So, I wrote The Far Out Café solely and completely for myself and as such see this as my best work.

I would really welcome your support in finding people who would be interested to review the book or set up any kind of interview that you think may or may not help. The book is not for everyone but its real and I personally like it and its about finding light in dark places and the reviews that have so far gone on Amazon and Barnes and Noble suggest that I may not be alone. I would be so very happy to answer any questions you may have and it goes without saying that I look forward to hearing from one or all of you and will always respond.

Thank you very much indeed for reading so far

With love and light and all best wishes

Stuart

Johanna Zanten | 30 comments Hi Stuart,
I am offering a view ink exchange for a review on my book, whether you do it yourself or have an articulate friend do it for you, as my book is not for everyone either and is best read or understood by a woman, I suspect. You can read some of my comments or reviews on Goodreads and the book I read on my bookshelf.
You can reach me by blog for On Thin Ice, or on Gooxreads, and become a friend or on Facebook
