Before starting this blog, I hadn't looked at any except the one run by my twin brother, Ian (see the Blog List at the side for a link). I certainly had no idea whether anybody would look at this one. The intention was just to raise a little awareness of the novel I am trying to get published. That was all. Yet people I have never met have joined it, commented on the posts and really shown an interest in my little endeavour. That's people from the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, France and the like. It's a very strange feeling to think that these pages are being read in such far away places. But I guess we are all under the same sun and the same moon and stars. It's a pretty comforting thought.
Ironically, the response to the blog has led me to look at the blog itself not just as a tool to raise awareness of Tollesbury Time Forever but as a device for me to look further into the themes of the novel and perhaps in time why I have written it at all. But equally I am beginning to feel a creeping obligation to you good people who have taken the time to read these pages and especially those who have committed to joining and following the blog.
The route to publication is slow indeed so I would like to ask some questions if I may?
- Why have you decided to check out this Blog?
- What else would you like to see on it?
- Who are you and what do you do?
- When are the mighty Dagenham and Redbridge next going to win a game?
Cheers and take care everybody!
