I originally began this blog at the behest of my publishers at Eloquent Books who were keen to have me publicize the release of my first novel Loot http://www.amazon.com/Loot-D-G-Mattichak-Jr/dp/1609117239/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_1/178-2556430-2472429 (please check it out and if you like what you see buy it!). I began with the intention of writing about writing, crime fiction, print on demand publishing and other topics of interest to writers generally. Since then I have acquired a few subscribers and thousands of people have viewed my blogs. The writing that seems to attract the most attention and which generates the most comments and general interest has been the essays on the odd topics that I have been researching like the Rosicrucians and the Wiccan/Pagan movement here in Australia- not the stuff that I have posted about writing per se.
Recently I have been very lax in posting blogs, mostly due to spending a lot more time on research for more books. My second book, A Comment on the Verses of the Book of the Law, should be out very soon (barring any more unforeseen circumstances) and as a writer I have moved on to new topics and different interests. As such I have had very little to post about publishing, or about crime fiction (or even on new age subjects) and meanwhile this blog has been mostly unattended. Even so it continues to generate interest in my work and so, bearing these things in mind, I have decided to take my blog in a new direction, using it to share some of the amazing things that I learn in the course of researching my books, and also as a platform for introducing my own ideas and observations of modern life that I hope will continue to interest my faithful readers and to excite the interest of new ones alike.
So, over the coming months I intend to post a lot of (hopefully) interesting stuff, perhaps some controversial takes on world events and to engage in some entertaining and enlightening repatee with those of you who read my posts.
