Thirty-Two Years Old …

23 Mar

Today is my birthday. I’m 32 years old.

(Several people were kind enough to send me edits for some of my older work, so I spent the morning editing and re-uploading the books. After that, we went out for lunch.)

I wanted to write a long rambling post about my life, but most of what I want to say isn’t really suitable for public consumption. All I can really say is that I’ve achieved some of my dreams and others look to be within reach. And I’ve returned to the UK for a few more months, which is quite a good thing (even if I have gone mad in the bookshops, as Malaysia really doesn’t have very many decent bookshops.)

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading the books I’ve posted over the last year. There will be many more to come, starting with The Nelson Touch (Ark Royal II), which can be downloaded from Amazon now. Next up, I intend to write the third Royal Sorceress book and then probably the final Democracy book. I also have to write the fifth Schooled in Magic book, which is going to be quite different – I hope. And to think I have seven books planned for the first arc of the series!

I’m also developing ideas for new series – either trilogies or open ended books. Watch this space for more details. As always, comments, suggestions and thoughtful criticism are always welcome.

Thank you to everyone who sent in birthday wishes – I really appreciated them.

Chris (one year older, still no wiser despite his wife’s best efforts.)

    Happy Birthday Chris….I was 67 two days ago so you are just a puppy!! 🙂 Read Nelson Touch and immensely enjoyed it…I am continually astounded on how you keep so many projects going at once and still the quality of the writing doesn’t suffer. No opinion on what you should offer next because I enjoy them all though I think I would like you to finish a story line perhaps. Keep up the great work!

    Happy Birthday! (And contrary to Johntae71, time doesn’t really “tick down;” it flows on. At 75, I should know.)

    Many happy returns on your birthday. Remember to splurge on something fun and frivolous for yourself.

    Happy Birthday Chris. Hope you had a good one.

    FWIW, I have shit stains in my underwear older than you. 😉

    I am happy you are still so young, so that I will likely have some good reading until I pass my Kindle on to my nieces and/or nephew. Likely they will be reading your stuff after that.

    Happy (somewhat belated) Birthday kid! Keep up the good work!

    Happy birthday! Loved The Nelson Touch…I can’t wait for the book detailing the events on Earth and, of course, Ark Royal III…
