  1. When proofing, it is a good idea to buy several different bottles of store brand “minerals”. mix these together and you get a sinister cloudy liquid, vaguely pinkish – great for concentrating – be it on an angry mob or a finely crafted manuscript. either way, as the plaque it produces is pink too, nobody notices your teeth disappearing, before they disappear. Where’s me tablets? Mummy, why are the PSNI called the PSNI? Because they are, you see. Where’s the book. Your public, the Booker committee and the in-patients are getting impatient. Stab me vitals! To work now … ♪♫ ☺

    All new authors need to know these valuable techniques. Thanks for brushing aside the veil of insider secrecy and revealing them.

    Wow – really loved the excerpt! The problems in Northern Ireland before the infamous Troubles is an area that hasn’t really been explored before – in both fiction and non. So it’s encouraging to read Mr Waters’ thriller set in this period. Sounds like a possible Ulster “Touch of Evil” — can’t wait till it comes out!

    With every little thing which appears to be developing within this specific subject material, your perspectives tend to be fairly exciting. However, I appologize, because I do not give credence to your entire idea, all be it radical none the less. It would seem to everyone that your opinions are actually not totally validated and in simple fact you are generally your self not even completely certain of your assertion. In any event I did appreciate examining it.
