…well, whaddya know?… my wee blog celebrates its millennium post…


…when yeez reach 21, yeez supposedly get the ‘Key to the Door’… if sum’thing lasts until the magic 50 number, it’s a Golden Anniversary… and knock on to 60 and yeez register for a Diamond Jubilee… race away and get the 100 up, and there’s yer Centenary, and the customary, polite ’round of applause’… but, the poor wee 1000th of anything lapses into the ordinal background…. p’raps ‘coz it’s quite uncommon, I s’pose… but, here it is, Mabel, my wee blog has just sailed past its 1000th post… of course, a good smattering and more of these are the excellent contributions from many of yeez Lads and Lassies of Blog Land in the form of Guest Posts… what started out a tad less than only three years ago has blossomed into sum’thing this ol’ Jurassic LUVS being involved with… whatever other labels I may stick on myself, I’m proud to say I’m a writer… growing up, I don’t think my preferred career choices would have included that particular soubriquet… the progression of ‘what-I’m-gonna-be-when-I-grow-up’ moved through, ‘drummer’, ‘racecourse bookmaker(?!!)’, ‘professional soccer player’, ‘beat-group-front-man-singer-harmonica-player-a-la-Mick-Jagger’, (yeah, right!)… ultimately the dark WURLD of finance grabbed hold and immersed my puny talents in international banking for a few decades… scribbling had always been a side indulgence… the angst-ridden poetry of the acne-laden teenager… articles for social club magazines… but never a full-on ‘let’s-write-books’ desire… until relatively recently… about six years ago, I’d say… ‘that book’ which we all supposedly ’have in us’ eventually saw the light of day… and the taste took hold… now, with three Jack Calder crime fiction novels under my Amazon belt, and and a fourth as Work-In-Progress, along have come the Crooked Cat Publishing people…

Crooked Cat Publishing

…and the ’self-publishing’ quill-scraper now has a formal business partner window to the literary universe… and I’m absolutely delighted with the progression… Crooked Cat Publishing brings that excellent mix of access to the eBooks circuit, as well as the print market… precisely where this scrivener should be at this stage in his writing development… central to that has been the understanding that an active participation in the SOSYAL NETWURK society is essential for me, and more particularly, spinning all of these channels via this ‘ere blog… hence, it takes a bow on its 1000th edition...when it stops being fun, I’ll let yeez know… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!
