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 and that experience has prompted many cautionary tales in BADD. This comprised 25 linked, true-to-life dramas / comedies that followed a young boy growing up. At first, he is a minor menace but he ends up a hero. The stories are aimed to engage parents, teachers, young adults, and particularly children aged 8 -11. Many children in this age group have read at least some Barry Badd stories and have been very complimentary.
After much revision and adding several chapters BADD, the book shown here, was split into two.
Using Createspace I published BADD: Book 1 Menace to hero, I am splitting my other 5 books, so will end up with a 12 book series - in this my antihero, ages 9 - 13.
BADD: Book 1 Menace to hero, is on sale on KINDLE. and on AMAZON.
BADD: Book 2, HAUNTED BY CATS is also on Kindle and Amazon.
Books 3 and 4 are ready to publish.
My books are copyright D A Seaby or David Allen Seaby
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.
