The Bio Business

I am very lucky that I have a publisher who pushes me to be more outgoing (I like it quiet). In an effort to pry me from my limpet-like existence, they have done a truly wonderful job of sprucing up my author page on the Creativia website. You can now find out loads of stuff about my past and links to my current book The Eternals, and they’ve evenΒ left space for book two, Hunter Hunted, soon to be released.

You can read a little about my life in Yorkshire, how I spent ten years in the Highway Man business pillaging from those of better fortunes, my three hundred years round trip to the Andromeda Galaxy to promote Save the Whale, how I lived under a tea cup for three months without food because I couldn’t find my way out and all manner of other stuff that I’ve just made up. Plus if you share it via the very clever buttons that they’ve placed around the screen it looks really good for me. Creativia have worked very hard on it and have even included a Yorkshire background to make me feel at home, (no mean feat for a Finnish company) so the help would be most appreciated. But most of all, I hope you enjoy it.

Here is the link. Feel free to click.

PS On an unrelated issue. If any WordPressers with a Mac have had as much frustration as me since upgrading to the latest operating system with their Safari Browser, I would uninstall Duck Duck Go. It fixes it. This is the first post I’ve managed to write in my browser for almost a month, and I’ve even managed to read some posts without my computer singeing my eyebrows.

  1. I sincerely admire your decision to exit corporate life and write full-time, as it were. I was not brave enough to attempt escape from the insurance asylum until it had squeezed every drop of energy and enthusiasm from me, leaving me bodily broken and mentally exhausted. That was 12 years ago, and ever since I have been convalescing in the guise of a poet.

      1. πŸ™‚ Im not so sure about that, you’ve got some genuine publishing under your belt, sir. πŸ™‚ I shall certainly tout it when it finally comes around πŸ™‚ Thank You!

  2. Reblogged this on Booknvolume and commented:
    Friend and fellow Author Richard Ankers now has a flashy new author page on our mutual publisher’s website, Creativia.com. Please do stop by and have a look, if you don’t already know what a Stellar writer he is πŸ™‚

  3. They’ve done an excellent job, Richard.

    I’m a MAC user and stopped using Safari when accessing WordPress many months ago. I had terrible problems not being able to access my blog’s dashboard. Not even the WordPress Happiness Engineers could sort the problem out for me. They recommended I download Chrome and use that when accessing WordPress. Apart from the occasional problem (like having all my comments sent to the spam folder), I’ve had no problems. I’d recommend giving it a go if you encounter any further problems with WordPress when using it through Safari. It’s certainly worked for me.

      1. I know the feeling, Richard. The problem I had in not be able to access my blog’s dashboard kept coming and going. However, over time it got worse. I wasn’t able to respond to comments which is something I always go on about in some of my blog posts when comments are not replied to. It’s one of the things that makes me say Grrrrrrr! very loudly. I kept getting a message saying that I was not logged into WordPress, so I’d login again, and the same problem would happen as soon as I tried to access the dashboard. Chrome was my savior. In fact, I use it instead of Safari now.

  4. I’m in a strange situation with this, because I’ve never had a full-time job working for someone else. I worked part-time in high school and college, but when it came time to decide if I would start taking internships and applying for jobs after graduation, that’s when I jumped.

    It was tough at times, but I’m also really glad I took the leap. Blogs like this one were the biggest motivators to do so, and now I’m extremely happy I kept at it.
