Grandpa’s Poetic Way

I believe that I have finally sorted out the problem with my book, and it is now available for free download, this weekend.

It is available here for Amazon UK readers, and here in the US. It is available worldwide, so you should be able to find it if you search for its updated title, Grandpa’s Poetic Way.

I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you to all those who have already taken a look. If you feel moved to offer a review, that would be appreciated. If you don’t like it, then that’s okay, too.

Grandpa’s Way 2

On Thursday, I posted that I would be making my book available for free download over the weekend. Unfortunately, I appear to have confuse the Amazon system for the US website and my book failed to show up there.

Therefore, I decided to pull the promotion for this weekend so that I could re-offer it, later. I hope to get the free download available again next weekend and this time, to include my US readers in the offer.

I can only apologize for the confusion.

Meanwhile, I will just have to start work on the next volume.

Grandpa’s Way Poetry

I mentioned in my previous post that I have published my first book of poetry on Amazon.

Well, I am now pleased to tell you that the book will be available for free download, this weekend, from 16th to 17th May.

Please feel free to get your copy, and, if you feel that you could write a review, then that would be much appreciated.

Once again, thank you to my readers and mentors for your help and encouragement.

Been Busy

Well, hello, everyone. I hope you missed me!

You may (or may not) have been wondering where I’ve been. Well, I can now reveal that following encouragement from several sources, including Rita of The Anxious Traveler fame, I have finally published my book, Grandpa’s Way: Poetic Motivation on Amazon.

The book is a collection of my poems and photographs with some adjustments and explanations. It is designed to provide motivation and starting points for mindful meditation. I don’t consider myself to be an expert, but as many bloggers know, prompts can be found in all sorts of places.

So I hope you will forgive me for being away from my blog for the last few days. I have not been away from my keyboard. I am amazed at how much work was involved in getting the work finalized.

How does it feel? Well, when I was about twelve, I had a dream of taking my notebook and pen (no portable computers in those days) up the mountain to a secluded spot, writing a book, and getting it published. I have had several unsuccessful attempts at fiction, over the years, but never finished anything. However, thanks in great measure to the blogging community I have now published my first book.

And it feels fantastic.

So, if you feel like wandering over to Amazon and taking a look, that would be wonderful. If you feel like writing a review, then that would be even more wonderful.

Once again, thank you to all my readers for the help and encouragement. Now it’s time for some sleep, ready to work on the next book.

So many people have commented on my photos of Cenarth Falls, here and here, that I thought I would post another image showing the road bridge. As you can see, it is a very calm, peaceful place, even though it gets busy during the summer.

Self-Hosted Blog Issue

HELP!

I’m hoping someone can help me. I have a self-hosted blog here. It is one of a number of blogs using the same account, but I used my master Dashboard to install the Push Syndication add-on to try to get my posts to show up in the WordPress Reader. It worked, once or twice, in the early days, but now it has stopped. Several times, I have tried deleting the API application and re-created it, without success.

I have posted in the forums, looking for help, but it seems to me that there is a lot of conflicting advice in there, much of it very specific to the individual blog issue, but none of it specifically telling anyone how to get this to work.

So I’m looking to those of you with self-hosted blogs, and who have managed to get your posts to show up in the Reader. Any help that you can offer would be welcome. If you can help me to get this working, I will be even more grateful 🙂
