The Emirates Airline Festival of Literature

I'll be at the Emirates Airline Festival of Liturature in Dubai on the weekend starting April 8th. I'll be attending with fellow Sand (The Al Ain Writers' Group) members and we'll be secretly scoping out the joint for next year when we intend to present an organized front for local writers - that is writers in the UAE, Qatar, Syria etc. If you're going to be at the festival, or are a local writer, please feel free to contact me.

Thoughts: who are you?

With the release of the third chapter of HOW TO LOSE YOUR VOICE WITHOUT SCREAMING (The Infallible Doktor Flees) there was a HUGE unprecedented burst of activity, particularly in the US, yesterday. It kind of, sorta, like, blew my mind. I do not know anywhere near that many people in the United States... I guess some readers shared the link? Thank you!

By the way, very very helpful comments and encouragement from Robert Studholme, Spot68, Safa Adam etc in the last few days. Please keep these coming. Overall, most thoughts are being sent directly to me. If you'd like to leave your thoughts on the site, see the 'Comment' at the bottom of the upload.

Thank you for all the hits. It makes the writing process that much more meaningful to know people are getting to know Cowboy Kingsley, Doctor Flees, and Zeak. Martha is on the way. She just put on her sunglasses and is collecting her things... Get ready. Chapter Four, Three Reasons To Go On, will be released over the next couple days.
