I know, it's been a while, but I have been extremely busy with really very little time to write. Relax, I plan to amend that real soon.
As I wind down my relationship with Public Sector Communications, and ratchet up my focus on my writing career I'm doing things that I believe will help me create the environment I seek in which I can really excel.
Over the past week I became a proud member of the Florida Writers Association and I have all intentions of participating as often as I can in their mini-workshops and annual Writers Conference.
I'm really excited, because I see myself expanding and growing as a writer and in all honesty I don't see that happening here in Trinidad, we just don't have the support.
So while I recently, under the umbrella of the Writers Union of Trinidad and Tobago, announced an award for Trinidad and Tobago writers, domiciled in Trinidad and Tobago, I truly feel that at some point in the writer's journey, you must, if only for experience, leave your comfort zone and chart out into the big wide world.
I've decided, my first steps will be in Florida. As most of you know, I'm not built for cold weather and Florida is close enough to home and far away from the crazies out there in the world.
I guess it is time for me to focus on me. I've done the writing for Le Noireau, La Marin, Crooked Cabinet and Madras Raja and those four novels complete the Le Noireau saga.
They are four different stories, with by and large the same characters whose lives are exteneded on some pages and cut short on others. For me, the telling of the tales complete the entire story I wanted to tell.
If you are up to reading a unique turn on a part of Trinidad and Tobago's history that many people really either don't know about or prefer not to talk about, then may I suggest you head on over to my webstore to purchase my novels. At the moment they are availabe autographed in hardcopy. I'm working on having the e-copy available soon.
For my readers and friends in the Florida area who missed me at the Miami Book Fair International 2013, I will be attending the Florida Writers Association's mini-conference on March 29th in Plantation. I am looking forward to meeting as many of you there as possible. Come on over and say hello. I'm the one with the quirky braces.
And I promise as I always do, that I'll blog more often. There is so much catching up to do.
