New Release: “Blachart”, Book 1 in the Galaxii Series – 2018


I’ve been writing stories basically since I could hold a wax crayon, and this book is in that respect a milestone for me. Why? Well, you may ask that question, but the answer isn’t a simple one.

While you may recognize the name of this book, “Blachart“, you won’t recognize the cover! If you read it before, and were to read it again now, you would notice a few changes. For one thing, there are illustrations in color (eBook versions), and while the plot remains unchanged, the flow of events within are more refined and there is a good deal more story to it. The book is also a good deal longer than it was before – nearly twice the length as a matter of fact. This is book 1 in The Galaxii Series, titled “Blachart“, and the new version is now available via Lulu.com and Smashwords, and should be through their networks of retailers too, shortly.  More

New Release: A Way Of Life by Theo Engela


As some of you might know, I’ve been keeping a promise I made to my Dad many years ago – that I would one day publish his three novels. I have been working hard to keep that promise, and have taken off the last few months from my own writing to do so – his collection of short stories “African Assignment“, and his third and last novel “Shakandazu Valley” have already been published, and today it’s my privilege to announce the release of his very first novel, “A Way Of Life” by Theo Engela.

Written in 1965, this novel was never published. It was his first novel, and it focuses on alcoholism and the struggle of the main character with it. The story is brilliantly written, and describes this way of life with dramatic and upsetting realism, for the alcoholic and those who love them.

New Release: African Assignment by Theo Engela


Another re-release – a collection of short stories by my father, Theo Engela, edited by me. Previously published by myself (2007), then by J. Ellington Ashton (2015), and later by LightBearer Publishing (2016), the fifth edition is now available via Lulu.com.

Order: Print / Ebook

“Theo Engela’s short stories were written during the 1950’s and 60’s, and set in the South African bushveld and society of the day, providing a fresh look at a world now long vanished. Using imagery and place names unfamiliar to folk living in the 21st century, the author shows us a simpler, less complicated world filled with wonder and mystery, where crime could still be perfect and the world lived fearfully under the ever-present threat of the Cold War. Mesmerizing African folklore and almost-vanished cultures stand side by side. Rounded off in his own unique style, he displays a biting sense of humor and irony in his work, which would probably not seem out of place in a Hitchcock serial or even in the Twilight Zone.” More
