The Shadows Of Paradise Vlog II

My second video blog about my ongoing novel The Shadows Of Paradise. Working hard on it, despite the depressing world news, and soldiering on – writing is the hardest thing anyone can do in the comfort world.

        The novelist can only pose the question, the answer is in the hands of history 🙂


  3. Yes, nothing worse than a didactic novel, best to give a full picture to the reader and let him/her decide.
