My book, BADD, reached the editor under the old system - it was very hard work.
HEALTH WARNING. Due to sitting for too long at a stretch 'doing' Authonomy - I developed a clot in my right leg - part of this then moved to my lungs. That nearly killed me. However, I soon fully recovered, but I do strongly advise regular walk abouts at short intervals. I was lucky - DVT is serious - a pulmonary embolism can be fatal - I was lucky.
Currently, I either write, play golf, or chess, or invent stuff.
For me, surviving childhood was probably a miracle. That prompted many cautionary tales in BADD. This comprised 25 linked, true-to-life dramas / comedies recording a young boy growing up - at first a minor menace but ending up a hero. The stories were aimed to engage adults and particularly children aged 8 -11. Many children in this age group have read some Barry Badd stories and have been highly complimentary.
After a huge amount of editing the book that was shown here was split into two. I have now self published 5 Barry Badd books out of a series of 12. Seven further books are written but not yet edited.
BADD has been made private on Authonomy.
I greatly enjoy Bill Bryson's intelligent humour, I also particularly like amusing biographies. For example The moon's a balloon by David Niven, Dear Fatty by Dawn French, The Elephant to Hollywood by Michael Caine.
