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.
The incredible charity known as Guide Dogs is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, and throughout the month of October, Libra and I intend to smash 90 kilometers of walking to help raise funds. Should anyone feel like contributing, here is the link to our Facebook page. Donate HERE
Well that’s my About Me page updated. It really only contained half a Jamography so now we have the full SP. If you didn’t know me yet, you will now lol.
I’d also just like to take this opportunity to say I’m taking part in a fundraising event with Libra for Guide Dogs just six days from now, and of course, would be grateful of any pledges or shares to spread awareness. This can be done via my Facebook page. Wishing you all a great day, Jam.
My charity commercials rant . Getting very annoyed now about the time of day charity commercials are broadcast and how they tell us to send specific amounts.
Give freely, donate what you can, when you want to!
Hi guys, my good friend Jonathan Green has taken a vow to go without chocolate for an entire month. If you could sponsor his efforts we can all help to raise the £300 target he hopes to reach for The British Heart Foundation. Please follow this link to learn more Donate Here
Saw an old homeless guy in the subway today playing an unrecognisable tune on a harmonica. I slipped him a coin for which he was very greatful and the smile he gave was the most genuine id seen in a long time….if a little toothless. It made me wonder how much people actually give as they walk by, and what is a fair amount if we put aside the saying ‘beggars cant be choosers’.
To begin with i think copper coinage id pretty useless. Not only is it difficult to find anything which costs a penny or two, but shops also reserve a legal right to refuse over 20p in copper coinage. I pissed a bus driver off doing just that in my schooldays, luckily i successfully appealed to his better nature. 5 pence coins are capped as well and awkward to carry around due to their size. Who wants to be weighed down by a pocketful of five p’s? So tens and twentys? Hmmm, these seem more respectable but youd need quite a few before you could buy anything like food or a drink at a cafe. Could try the pound shop but if you need something warm on a cold day youd be buggered. I figured anything from 50 pence or above is fair and practical in this day and age. Youd only need six 50p coins three times a day to eat relatively well. 18 generous people out of the hundreds that pass you by. Of course ill give whatever i can spare, but i see a fifty pence piece or above as a realistic offering in 2015.
Incidentally…. I gave this guy a one pound coin.
