…yesterday, I had an interesting exchange of comment with my good friend, terrific Authoress, Carol Hedges, during which an idea surfaced about who actually writes the masterpieces we produce?… of course, the fingers tapping away at the laptop belong to this ol’ Jurassic… but lots of yeez Lads and Lassies of Blog Land may agree with me, that so often… p’raps too often… the characters themselves take over… the narrative runs away in directions yeez had never intended as the author of yer stuff… and the daft ideas (of which I have gazillions, believe me!) began to creep in about ‘Honesty in Advertising… Authors’ cover pages… WHO ACTUALLY wrote it?’… at present my books’ cover pages carry my strap line, SEUMAS GALLACHER, ( see below) as the ascribed scribe, but how difficult would it be to list instead, all the main cast list on the front page as the real authors as per the characters’ constant meetings in my head?… another angle pops up— so much of the material in my crime thrillers comes from listening to the 24/7 cable news channels, and then simply changing the names to protect the guilty… so an alternative Author title cover page would carry a directory listing of all the news channels on my television set… it all becomes a bit surreal… and thinking of which, how can I list my subconscious mind as the Author?… ‘coz so much comes blurting out early in the morning after ‘sleeping on it’ … I could see a future book having more content as the ‘Author Title’ than the book content itself… as yeez can see, this ‘honesty in advertising’ gig is not as straight-forward as it seems… suffice then, merely to direct yeez to the current cover pages, and let yeez make yer own minds up… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!…
