Ok, here goes. Why did I start this blog? Because I wanted to (get famous) practice my writing skills. ……… Ok, it was to get famous AND practise my writing skills. Also, I need a lot of help, as we all do, and I think I will only get
that help if I can offer something in return (either now or later).
My interests are writing, writing, and if I get time, even more writing. I want to
write exciting fiction about Law, The Philippines, Human Rights – because these are the things I know some things about – especially immigration law, bribery, corruption and lawlessness in the Philippines, and the lack of human rights for certain groups in Asia – eg Domestic Helpers in Hong Kong, the poor in the Philippines etc.
These things interest me passionately and I will post occasional blogs about all them – PLEASE let me have your thoughts, comments, disagreement,
I will also review books that interest me and recommend them, just because I like doing it – no charge, so if you are an author, send it along – let’s try to help each other.
Ok. What can I GIVE? Well, all I can offer is my time and whatever expertise I have gathered in my 58 years. Feel free to ask anything, I will do my best to
In terms of publishing, I have been through the meat grinder of self publishing
over the last six months. It is going quite well, but I know I have still got
so much to learn. On the other hand, despite setbacks and disappointments I have learned a lot, and I am happy to assist and advise anyone drowning in the sea of writing and publishing on a limited budget with
no money. It’s not all doom and Gloom. There is also despair, loss of
confidence and depression.
Despite all the above I am enjoying myself, and I will keep on (trucking) writing. I expect to be lonely here for a while, but please take pity and leave me a reply
or a post when you can – and watch this space!!!
Meet the author
Arthur Crandon is a lawyer, the boring office kind, not the exciting (and much better paid) courtroom type. He worked as a solicitor for a while before embarking on an interesting life overseas. He has spent most of his time in recent years in South East Asia, more recently in Hong Kong. Before that, Arthur lived and worked in the Philippine Islands.
He loves to fish, and play the piano – but spends most of his time writing, eating, drinking and sleeping
– usually, but not always, in that order.
His first book, Deadly Election, draws on his strange imagination and his
experiences, together with those of others, in a land that, beneath a veneer of civilisation, operates like the Wild West and is very
dangerous to innocent and gullible foreigners.
