Berwick Street to Barcelona

OUT TODAY

front cover

Today Berwick Street to Barcelona, memories of love is available to buy.  It’s our story…..

******

Berwick Street to Barcelona is the story of our love, as seen through my eyes.  It’s one filled with laughs, tears, and plenty of sex.

After meeting in a shady cinema in Berwick Street in 1982 we enjoyed just over 34 amazing years together, before Tony died of cancer in February 2016.

In our time together we lived in first in Shaftesbury Avenue, then in Brockley in south east London, before settling in Vilanova i la Geltru, near Barcelona. We made countless friends along the way, some good, some great, some better forgotten.

Our life together was filled with some incredible adventures and experiences, some fun, others heart-breaking.

This is a compendium of my memories of all those times.

Nanowrimo – Day One

Nanowrimo challenge day one and I’m happy to report things are going great guns. I hope everyone else who is participating is as happy with their progress too…

I am pleased to report that  I’ve surpassed the daily minimum necessary to complete (1,666) having got just over 2,000 words on the page.
It’s a new genre for me and I’m loving it. Suspense and thrills – well at least I hope that’s how it reads. And I have a special feeling for my heroine and Hero.

Nanowrimo

I’ve not really had the ‘ganas’ to write lately but as the Nanowrimo challenge starts again tomorrow for 30 days I’ve decided to take part despite busy house stuff going on, and have even had a thought about my story.
I have a list of over 150 one word prompts which I am going to use on a daily basis to build said story. If that doesn’t quite work it may be a load of short stories…. I have chosen the first prompt: number 27 – Mistakes, which is the working title for the whole thing.
Anyway I am writing again…. Tomorrow I will post the first couple of paragraphs of the story as it unfolds… it’ll be raw and unedited and I’d love to get your opinions ….
Thank you for hanging on (if you have)
Mark

Adam, Matthew – back story

Adam’s story and Matthew’s story started out as separate tales which have coalesced into one tale of larger proportions.

I started Adam’s tale a long while back, in may 2013, (Paper)  having no idea where it was going, or even that it was going to be a series, and still am just a passenger on the journey journalling the tale. Matthew’s tale started more recently in ‘Letter‘.

Their stories are now inextricably linked. I have had a glimpse into what lies in store for them both, but the whole story is still not fully formed.

Unfortunately (or fortunately)  I am taking a break at the end of the week for a couple of weeks, but tomorrow their story will continue, and come to some kind of conclusion on my return.

 

Thank you for your interest – I hope you enjoy the rest of the journey with us.
