After a very productive year which saw the anthology, You’re Not Alone born and published in collaboration with twenty-seven writers from around the globe along with support from many more, I am pleased to announce that short story entries are beginning to come in for the next collection featuring a whopping forty-three writers thus far.

It promises to be another epic anthology in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and I am excited by the prospect of being a part of it and working with so many talented writers who form members of the IASD.

Three days ago, I began work on the sequel to my first book, Salby Damned and have opted to write this in first person POV. This is completely new territory for me so I am relying heavily on the support of the group for guidance. So far, so good. The book will be entitled Salby Evolution and follows the life of Simon Lloyd, whom you may remember from the final stages of the first book.

If you enjoyed Salby Damned, you can expect bigger and better  with the new book which is estimated for release by the end of the year. Stay tuned for progress reports. Cover design for the next book will hopefully be by Nico Laeser as one of his first paying customers. The editing will naturally be by Kelly Hartigan. I mean really, who else??

Work continues for myself and the rest of the admin team, Paul Ruddock and Tom Benson, in our plans to revise and expand the IASD blog site. In the immediate future, below are points that I shall be dealing with directly.

  • Further revision of book covers and upgrading to 3D imagery.
  • Addition of members works to the blog in their respective categories as well as duplication for multi-genre books.
  • Inclusion of International Links to each title on the blog (ongoing)
  • Possible inclusion of a short descriptive sentence blurb for each title (yet to be practically tested)
  • Census group vote on membership totals and analysis and publication of the results in. (in progress)
  • Going forward, acting upon the group vote and contacting those authors registered with us to see if they wish to remain.

As far as group activity goes, there is scope for new ideas and enhancement of the blog site and I have a particular interest in promoting our editors, proof readers, beta readers, formatters and cover designers in the near future.

Works in progress for yours truly:

Being Within - Ian D Moore
Being Within

Being Within, a title and WIP that has been burning a hole in my brain for quite some time now. At the moment, it is purely, well mostly in my head rattling around every so often but I’ve made a start on this story up to about 12k word count.

Slightly off base for me, it delves into the paranormal world though in truth, could very well be reality for all we humans know. I shall say no more for the time being as it’s a long way off. The cover, incidentally, was tweaked by the brilliant Rhoda D’Ettore.

On a personal note, my thanks to Tom Benson for his brilliance and dedication as a fellow admin creating a beautiful new website design for us all to enjoy. Thanks also go to various members of the group so far for their guidance in and out of the writing world, you know who you are :).

My next read is The Gambler, a long overdue indulgence from the brilliant Christoph Fischer and a book I’ve been meaning to get to since last year. Stay tuned into the facebook page for my upcoming review when I’m done. After that, our very own Silas Payton goes into the spotlight….

That’s all on the QP personal front for now, I’ll be back with more QP Recommended reads and possibly the odd author interview too… enjoy!

  1. Hi Ian. I see that you “live and work in Goole.” A town I know well. From 1991 to 2006 I lived in Eastrington and was actively involved in Goole and district community affairs, notably the Talking Newspaper and the CVS. I also was briefly a presenter on Goole Hospital Radio. I worked for a while for Senior Thermal Engineering at Snaith. I retired from BAE Systems in 2006 and moved to Ireland. Since then I have become a self-published writer. My latest novel, Transgression, is set in a provincial town somewhere in England and deals with contemporary issues. If you will have me, I would like to become part of your group. This comment should be accompanied by an automatic link to my own WordPress account.

    1. Hi Frank, nice to meet a fellow writer. In order for me to add you, I’ll need you to find me on face book as the group is a secret group so I’m only able to add those directly on my friends list. If you search Facebook for Ian D Moore, Goole, you should find my profile. Once I’ve got you there, I’ll add you into the group and introduce you to the members there, give you a chance to mingle. It’s a very active, supportive and talented group of international writers of varying experience. I look forward to you being a part of it. Ian

  2. What an exciting year you’ve got ahead of you. I look forward to keeping up with your progress and reading your book recommendations. I’ve got several IASD books on my tablet and hope to get tound to several of those in the coming months, including the anthology. Looking forward to that.
