In 1982, with the knowledge gathered to put together a novel,
I created "Rainbow Colours: Into The Rainbow”. The novel itself was
and still is a large reflection of my life, one which I call the "True
Autobiography” and one which I look back on every now and again.
Rainbow Colours was not only a book which stripped me down completely,
but it was also the only one thing that gave a precise ‘Profile’ of
myself, and the details of where, how and when I was brought up.
In the Autumn of 2004, to my complete approval I finished
writing "Rainbow Colours 1″, some 18 years in the making and with a lot
of sacrifices made, too. By end of the last page of the last chapter in
the first volume, I was ill with exhaustion, as well as under nurished,
but all the same it was a major cause for a celebration. One month
after the initial completion of the first volume, I started to write Volume
Due to unavoidable circumstances, it was in the summer of
1998, when I was made redundant from the Leeds Royal Mail on Wellington
Street. I had been working for almost three years there and I was
stabbed in the back by both the Letter Sorting Machine and my Union. It
was a rough time, especially as they wanted me to work until January
1st 1999, and then take my redundancy money like a man before walking
away. It was a time for reflection and weighing up my life and it was a
time that urged me to think about the future.
Through 1999 I attended an Adult College at the East Leeds
Family Learning Centre, South Seacroft, Leeds. It was during this time
that I took the time in the morning to type out my newest novel since
"Rainbow Colours Vol. 1″. I had the backing of the college who told me
that I could work on the book and do my IT Level 1 course in the
afternoon. Within 3 months I had written what was to be one of the
biggest "Anquor” points of a novel’s potential. "Brotherhood Of The
Realms” was no ordinary novel, it was the beginning of the phenominally
popular "On A Storyteller Night” Story Shorts that were written for the
soul intentions of publishing, but had not made the right attention
needed by any publishing house.
Proud of myself for finishing the novel, I decided to gather
together all the Story Shorts and blend them into "Brotherhood Of The
Realm” and in certain areas I would expand the dialogue for that true
feel to what the charactor’s were describing. The writing became a
permanant fixture to that of my imagination, something that only one had
influenced me that way – "Rainbow Colours” – and had me churning out
story after story.
By 2004, "On A Storyteller’s Night Vol. 1″ was completed and
the second volume started with more than 15 chapters to each volume.
The whole writing of the second volume had me doing Volume 3, until a
need to start Volume 4 came across me like a wave. I was on fire for
the next two and a half years. Story after story emerged and submerged
the pages of the new volumes. It was rightly noted that in one single
day I would be switching back and forth from one story to the other, not
worrying about the outcome as I unlatched writer’s block with a calm
hand. This was the time when I thought the worst and came to think that
I was in my writer’s peek area, but later found that it was a boost
that I had from my Muse, and the only one thing that could have
dedicated so much energy for me to carry out the writing’s that I did in
such a short time.
"On A Storyteller’s Night Vol.1″ is what I refer to as my
hidden talent that is awaiting exposure. The fundamentals of writing
have been rewritten in a sandbox alone to prove the theory that
street-wise can also merge into society-wise, too. The stories
contained are raw, admittedly, as are all the Story Shorts and Novels
that I have written either by hand or typed out with my very own
fingers. In one respect I know that the large bursts of adrenalin,
sweat, blood and tears have gave birth to one of the biggest broken down
novels ever to have been written.
The one question that was on everybodies mind was of how many
volumes would make up the entire collection of "O.A.S.N” and the answer
is 25 Volumes, each one consisting of 10 to 12 Story Shorts that are
all a direct connection with "Brotherhood Of The Realms 1″. Hard to
believe that in 2008 on another WebBlog Site I released the entire
"O.A.S.N Vol. 1″ letter by letter and page by page.
Visitor’s, Fans, Re-Visitor’s and Wanderer’s alike, I give
you the Official BlogNovel Site for the reading of "On A Storyteller’s
Night Vol. 1″. May you enjoy your stay and adore the reading of the
Story Shorts while you relax with the horror’s that lay before you. Of
course, the site is here for your reading, support and complete
pleasure, but I must insist that anyone under the age of 18 contact an
adult for advice.
Thank You for your time.
