So, you want to be an Author?

I have been writing for a little under a decade now. I’ve had ups and downs throughout my years of writing and I thought I’d share some of these with you all.

The most important step to being a writer is to read as much as you can from already published authors. This will help you understand how to write.

Before I started writing I had only one book that I could reference my writing to and that was the Holy Bible (I was writing The Righteous Jardacia after all). After that I continued to write in the same way, and having no other reference points, it wasn’t received well by my readers.

After a few years of writing I was becoming annoyed in my ability to write. I had good ideas and an excellent imagination, it just wasn’t translating to my work. I started reading novels by already published authors. I was interested in gaming, so naturally I found books that span off from some of the games I used to play.

I also used to rush writing and publish before I had even had a chance to proofread and edit. This is probably the most harmful thing I did, because it makes all of your work questionable before the reader has a chance to see it. I still make the mistake of publishing unfinished works to this day, and I still look like an idiot when I do it.

Usually, once I had completed a novel or short story, I’d advertise it. This, however, is a huge mistake if you are paying for it. Advertisements online are hot spots for trolls. What I have done instead of paying to be humiliated by online trolls is to post links to my novel in groups and forums online. This has generated more interest for me.

I made a number of my works available for free on Google Books, Amazon and a few others. This helped introduce my writing to new readers who were more inclined to leave a review. Who doesn’t like free stuff?

Another way I introduced readers to my work was to write about something people were already fans of. Fan Fictions is a great way to do this. My book, Xena: Warrior Princess was a complete success with over 5 thousand readers and a fair amount of 5 star reviews.

Today, I don’t advertise my work, yet it still sells. Once you gain a few fans of your work, it just snowballs into something huge.

Why we should be supporting The For Britain Movement

Politics in the United Kingdom has become a very literal rendition of the Demon’Ocracy of the next realm. Lies and deceit by senior politicians is the norm of today’s society. I have searched for political parties which best resemble the doctrines of our Faith and the only one is The For Britain Movement.

The party and its leadership have been smeared by left-wing activists who have infiltrated almost every aspect of the media-driven world. They deliver daily propaganda for their cause. The left only know how to destroy, but Ann Marie Waters is creating something we all should be right behind.

I was a member of the Green Party, but I decided to leave because of the hypocrisy of their policies. For Britain has better policies for Animal Welfare and Greenbelt land than the Green Party.

In our faith – over three thousand members – we have people from all walks of life, who have converted from different religious organisations. Islamic Converts are most in danger. Apostasy in Islam is punishable by death. For Britain understands the threat of Islam in all its aspects, but it is not solely concerned with Islam, despite what those left-wing activists are trying to say.

For Britain has spoken out where others do not dare to whisper. They are a common sense party, who I believe to be following the virtues of Truth.

I believe that the current system of law is flawed. We have a tiered system where it is one rule for a certain group of people and another for another. For Britain will restore the Rule of Law. All people living in the United Kingdom will be subject to the laws of the United Kingdom.

As you may be aware, many people are now being silenced by political activists and social-media companies. I believe that nobody should be silenced for what they believe to be true. For Britain will change what has happened by implementing Free Speech again, as this aspect of our lives in the United Kingdom has been eroded by years of political correctness.

It is really easy and simple to join the movement. You can sign up through the website and pay a one-time joining fee of £15 and they a monthly donation of just £2 thereafter. With membership, you can voice your concerns, have your say on party policy and even become a candidate in your area for election.

Domestic Violence Affects Men Too

In today’s society it is common to only think of domestic abuse as affecting women, however, statistically speaking there are far more men being abused. The difference is that men are far less likely to report such abuse for one reason or another.

For me, speaking from experience, I was in an abusive relationship around ten years ago. She would stop me from talking to certain friends, she would constantly want to know who was texting and ringing my phone, she would even go through messages to make sure that I wasn’t being “Naughty with other girls.”

We didn’t officially live with each other, she had a flat somewhere and I had my own, but she wanted to be with me 24 hours a day, so when I wasn’t staying at hers she would be staying at mine. I remember her staying at my flat one night and I was speaking with the next door neighbour – who was a woman – I looked up at my spare bedroom window in horror as I saw her watching me talk to her. When she saw me she moved away from the window and I had to quickly wrap up my conversation with the woman. I walked up the stairs in dread as I didn’t know what she was going to say or do. We had an argument and she put her fist through my bedroom door.

I moved from my flat to another one around the corner and at the time I had to have mental health staff from the NHS visit me on a regular basis. It was on such a day that they were due to come round that my Girlfriend wanted to check my phone, I had no choice but to let her and she didn’t like what she saw. An argument ensued which resulted in her assaulting me so bad that blood began to drip from the side of my head. The NHS Staff came in to witness the aftermath of the assault. Whilst I was being seen to be the staff, she packed up things in my flat. She even took food knowing that I had no money to replace it.

I was embarrassed by the whole thing and didn’t want to get her into trouble at the time so I never reported it. Shortly afterwards I split up with her for good but she gave me a dire warning, that if I didn’t reconsider there would be consequences, but I shrugged it off. It’s been ten years and this woman still tried to control me and do damage to my life one way or the other. It’s a desperate situation that I have been subjected to.

The point of this is that men need to recognise and report the signs of domestic abuse. Do not fall into the way of thinking that it is embarrassing. If you are suffering from domestic abuse you should report it. There are a number of places you can get help.

Tumblr Paedophile Expose

I have used Tumblr for many years and this was a First

A guy popped into my feed posting sexual pictures of himself. The lad that was posting was probably a teenager, but he was posting definite CHILD SEXUAL images on his feed.

I investigated, as I am somewhat of a journalist, to find that he follows a number of other Tumblr accounts which publish the same content. Those accounts are considerably worse than the first one I came across. They have Hundreds of CHILD SEXUAL VIDEOS & PICTURES and they even offer trades though other websites and links to other places on the web to find more of the same.

I have contacted Tumblr staff this afternoon for them to tell me to contact another department. I did as they asked to find that there was an error on the contact form that stopped me from reporting the content.

I can’t report all the accounts single handed and it seems Tumblr Staff aren’t taking the issue seriously enough.

I am writing this expose to alert the community, because this shouldn’t be allowed anywhere, least of all on a major website. There should be no safe place for PAEDOPHILES! We do not accept them in society, so please alert TUMBLR STAFF to the MAJOR ISSUE within our online community.
