So my Mrs went on a diet recently. I myself was pushing 18 stones, so thought I’d support her by joining in. I just wasn’t burning the calories I was putting in. Just two weeks in, I weight 16 stone 8. This has been the easiest and effective method and I share it here, as recommended by our GP.
We have adopted the 16 hour fast diet. We eat everything we usually would – and we eat healthy- in and eight hour slot daily. 11am to 7pm. We eat nothing in the following sixteen hours, using drinks to suppress any hunger. Ginger and other herbal teas also help clear your tubes and give your liver a break from coffee and tea. This allows our bodies time to burn out those calories and empty of everything else. IT REALLY WORKS! Add to this an 8km walk daily, or especially swimming where you are using all muscle groups and the weight flies off. Give it a 7 day trial and I bet you’ll see results. Jam out!
Back in the eighties game books were at the height of their popularity, selling in their hundreds of thousands. Come the nineties, the video game era took over and game books saw a decline, with even the most popular series being pulled from the shelves. With game book fans of yesteryear now adults, they now wish to introduce their children to the genre, with many of them becoming authors of interactive adventures in their own right. The game book market is now reviving, as this generation looks for ways to bring children back to reading rather than screen time.
My new book, JAMTHOLOGY, is an introduction to game books with four thrilling pre-bedtime sized adventures, which start off easy and grow progressively more involving until you finish a seasoned game book adventurer. It is ideal for readers of all ages who wish to begin a journey into interactive stories and pit their wits, rather than read standard cover to cover books.
I’m delighted to announce a project I have been working on with my stepdaughter is about 75% done, and will probably be released early December. She will be joining the ranks of gamebook illustrators at just 16 years old, like her favourite did, the late Martin Mckenna. It will be my fourth publication inside 18 months. Watch this space for more…
Probably the worst thing about writing a gamebook is one wishing to share things with all the fellow fans of the genre. This of course would put a great risk on ideas getting plagiarised. I’m not even going to risk showing the cover for this little side project as I worry over IP. What I will say is, everyone is in for a new gamebook soon. Possible pre Christmas and, if it’s a nice sizable amount of pages, there will probably be a hardback version!
Quite a lot of people are asking about laws concerning Halloween on a Sunday in the UK, with many believing it is illegal. I’m delighted I have friends working in law, and these beliefs are of course ill found. They are rumours made up by cancel-culturing old farts, and bullshitters. It is important to state that devout Christians are entitled to not take part in Halloween, or be troubled by anyone doing it. #Samhain is a pagan celebration after all, and I respect them holding firm. But, please… stop spreading these rumors. TRICK OR TREAT IS NOT AGAINST THE LAW.
For the past two years I have been supporting the Eden Reforestation Project, a brilliant initiative which sets about replacing trees and creating new woodland environments. Today, I declare that every 25% of royalties I recieve through people buying my books will be donated to them. To put that into perspective, tree saplings are only £0.08p each, thus every book sold will now plant at least three trees somewhere in the world. Let’s green the land back together as responsible book lovers 🌲🌳💚🌍

Uber proud of my beloved English Pointer right now for clocking up over 130km and raising £200 for Guide Dogs charity this month, thats on top of the £105 she raised for Alzheimer’s Society earlier this year
I think my admiration and respect for William Shatner has boldly gone. When criticised by Prince William over his ten minutes in space aboard the Bezos cockrocket, he replied:
“… he’s got the wrong idea. The idea here is not to go, ‘Yeah, look at me. I’m in space’. No, I would tell the prince, and I hope the prince gets this message, this is a baby step of getting industry, all those polluting industries … off of Earth.”
Well old boy, I say you have the wrong idea. Why would spreading across the solar system polluting everywhere with our shit be a positive thing? By the time we even get their this planet will be beyond help. Scotty, beam him up and fetch Bones, he’s beyond rational thought.
Imagine all those tree saplings that cost just $0.12 cents you could’ve planted for that. Your own forest with 833,333 trees. Mind you, you have spent your life with a Deforest I suppose… plenty of Captains Logs cut down for you!
