Castle In The Clouds

Hi folks and welcome.  
Any prospective writers out there?   
Anybody need their prose polished up? Or
maybe you're a student with a thesis that
needs checking for grammar, or a company
needing a professional presentation.
Whatever your needs, in addition to my
writing, I offer proofreading & editing
services at a competitive rate. Fiction,
historical & biographical manuscripts,
students dissertations, and company
leaflets & brochures are also catered for.
Please phone or e-mail me for details.

My latest novel,
The Long Gallery, is now
available on Amazon Kindle and
Smashwords. com (6.50 USD). Young
Daisy Truman has inherited a rambling
country house in Kent, but little does she
realise the problems she is about to
encounter, from a conspiracy that has its
roots firmly embedded in the depths of the
ancient Hall, to a ghostly figure that roams
the rooms and passageways. The first
three chapters will be featured on this site
shortly, so please return and have a read.

Castle in the Clouds is still available, please
see link below for introductory chapters.
