Grey Moon

My preview book arrived. My house sale date may have also come. I intended to spend a week reading through Grey Moon a hundred times before I released it Monday 5th of February. I don’t know if I have time for that now, so you all may have to wait a couple of months until I have a new house before I have time and a decent internet connection to release it. Sorry! In the meantime, yeah, Reala look pretty handsome as the leading lady.

Maya & Seth

I mentioned a couple of weeks back, Maya got me into a marketing course with Seth Godin. Holy heck is it hard! It narrows down who you are, what you do and what change you want to make. A slice of the course.

“My goal is to help people start the day with a smile.”

I want to make people grin in the morning. Make them groan at an awful cheesy punchline or give an “oooh” to a Twilight Zone’esqe plot twist. Help people start the day right. Like that first cup of tea (or coffee) of the day. Where you take a sip and say “good grief, I needed that.”

That Gal, That Guy

TeeshirtBlogger ran an e-interview with me as the star this week. I maintain, as question 30 asks, my most excellent quality is my moustache.

You can check out the interview here: That Guy, That Girl

You are invited, to strangeness

This Saturday at 9 pm UK time, Amberley (who won’t make lemonade), AlexLayne and I will be watching the Twilight Zone episode, Cold Fusion. Followed at 9:30 pm UK time, by Theatre of Puppets,  read by CreepsMcPasta. We’ll prattle along as always during the showing. If you’d like to join is, poke me on Twitter and I’ll be sure to @ you so you get in on the conversation early.

Full details here: Saturday Night Show

Free course, four days left

Properly surprised at how many people have taken the class and that it has a 100% rating. Apparently, this technique is more helpful than I gave it credit for. It’s going to remain free until the 1st of February. Once you have enrolled, it’s free to access for life.

  1. What does Welcies mean? the way in which homes are purchased and sold seems different than in the States. The Tee I bought from you gets lots of use!


    1. Welcies = You’re welcome.

      We have one of the oldest property purchase systems in the world. And also one of the shittest. Unfortunately, it’s one huge hangover that lets the rich get richer and the poor to middle class never own their own home for good.


      1. I’m sorry to hear that. Why hasn’t the system been updated? I’ll have to look this up. Thanks for the clarification! Funny how we have a common language yet the dialect is different in many ways!


      2. Some further reading:

        Leaseholders are quite literally, trapped in their own homes:

        New builds have had a lease ban, but that doesn’t help anyone in a leasehold home. Currently half of the population of the UK. The land registry still hasn’t updated to digital which doesn’t help. The minimum time to sell a house is 8-12 weeks, with cases like mine stretching years where the lease was lost. Its taken me 5 years from extending a lease to get to now, and the purchase itself has been going on since October.

        Archaic system. Badly needs an update heh.


  2. Sending you happy thoughts and intentions for a smooth transition regarding the house sale and moving places, Peter! How exciting!

    I like the slice of the course with Seth Godin that you shared. You definitely make me smile with the humourous posts and I feel quite Twilight Zone-esque after reading/ listening to the horror posts.
    For the life of me, I currently cannot remember on which occasion I worked with material from Seth Godin… What I do remember is that it went straight to the core of things, which I experienced as intense and helpful.

    Enjoy yout Saturday Night Show on Twitter, tonight! 🙂


    1. The guys awesome. Really cuts through all the usual marketing tosh you hear.

      Fancy joining us for next weeks Saturday night Twitter ramble?


      1. Thanks for the SatNight invitation, Peter – I appreciate that.
        I did consider it and still find the idea interesting but currently I’m not in the right place to join you in that. This might change in the future, though.
