Guest Writer #4: Lee Hall


Welcome, readers – to the fourth in a series of posts on my website featuring writers from around the world.

Today it’s my privilege and pleasure to welcome Lee Hall, a writer from the UK!

Lee is an Indie author, playwright and award nominated blogger. His works include ‘Open Evening’, ‘Darke Blood’, ‘the Teleporter’ and ‘Cemetery House’. Lee is the resident playwright for Iver Heath Drama Club – a non profit community group located just outside greater London, and he’s also a book reviewer! In that capacity he’s written a truckload of reviews for many indie-writers, generously helping fellow independents to draw badly-needed attention to their books! He also offers a list of free Resources for Writers/Bloggers from his website.

Lee will tell you more about himself and his writing in his own words! More

“When Darkness Calls” – Actually A True Story


When Darkness Calls” started out as a memoir of true-life events that occurred in December 2011 – events that involved real people, myself included. Yes – what I’m saying is that it was a true story – as a matter of fact, it’s my own recollection of events that occurred at that time.

“But wait,” I hear some of you say, “This is a supernatural story – like with poltergeists and stuff!”

Yes.

Does that mean all that guff about spooks and things that go bump in the dark is true? Well, maybe. At least I think there’s some truth to it. I know I certainly didn’t imagine any of this.

And it’s true.

“Blachart” – A Writing Journey


I’ve been writing stories basically since I could hold a wax crayon, and as any writer might tell you, any book they’ve created holds a special place of its own in their heart! It’s no less true for me in the case of “Blachart” in that respect because of how that book is a milestone for me! Why? Well, because it was my first completed and published novel, and also because it’s the first of my books to be released as an audiobook!

You may wonder how I wrote “Blachart”, how it got to be what it is now, what the journey was like – and how long it took! To do that, I’ll have to take you back to the beginning! More

The Importance Of Making Back-ups


Back in the old days – that’s right, before computers – writers used to have a choice between writing our manuscripts out manually – with an actual pen, or typing them on an archaic device called a typewriter!

I still remember the cramps I got in my fingers from writing stories with a pen on actual paper – called ‘writer’s cramp’ – and the sore bruised feeling in my finger tips from clamping on that pen so hard while I feverishly wrote each word – being mentally already two sentences ahead of where my hand was on the page! Whew! Those were the days, eh?

Since then however, computers have made life so much easier for us writers, haven’t they? I mean, aside from being faster to ‘write’, it’s also so much quicker and easier to edit and format them now too! …Er – not that creating stories on computers is perfect or entirely without risks – in fact computers present a whole cluster of nasty, knotty problems for writers in the “Digital Age”!

Touching Base


A few days ago I shared some of my current and future writing projects with you (view here). In the meantime, I thought I should also share a little more information with you, about more mundane ordinary things that make up the ordinary life of this author. I hope it won’t bore you too much 😉 . More

A Taste Of Things To Come
