Let's Read Together!
My debut novella is finally ready to be released on the 30th July and I have never been quite so excited.
After a designer produced me a lovely front cover which met my criteria, I feel that I am now able to start sharing snippets and letting everyone into this modern story of families, turmoil and mental health issues.
Pause For Thought
Growing up is really just the opposite of growing down.
This will be a place where books are worshipped and I can share my short stories and novellas.
My first publication had been released on Amazon as both an e-book and in paperback form. Click here to sample it.
Jamie Adams - Short Dates
All of the main characters have suffered rejection, heartbreak
or just generally have a bad track record regarding love. Hurdles
are there to be beaten, but many trips and falls along the way
make some journeys difficult.

Back in the habit!
It has been a little while since I last updated my website but I am now getting back into keeping it up to date. It has been a busy year yet now I am keen to start sharing some of my new writing with you all. My debut novella, 'The Fathers, The Sons and The Anxious Ghost' is available on pre-order on Amazon and I shall be spending the summer promoting this and continuing to edit my next full novel, currently called, 'Being Watched'.
My story is told initially from the perspective of three men, whose childen all go to the same school. We discover other ways that they are linked and soon find out that a tragedy has occured in one of their homes. From that point on, the story is told from the perspective of their kids, ten years later. The tragic event has impacted a lot on each character and causes a series of events that challenge them all.
In my spare time I have been trying to understand how scripts are written because my long term goal is to be able to write plays and TV episodes. I find Phoebe Waller-Bridge very inspiring with her clever and witty writing of both 'Killing Eve' and, of course, the hilarious 'Fleabag.'
To add to this I have done some work as a film extra, which has given me an excellent insight into the media industry. Watching how movies are played out has given me many ideas for future attempts at screen writing. All of these things are very ambitious though, and we all know just how much rejection you have to undergo before you can make a success in this industry, The creator of the TV series POSE stated that he had sent his pilot episode to many different TV companies and it was rejected again and again long before it was taken up and made into the amazing FX series that it now is.

Trying out Poetry
I have been toying with poetry this week; exploring kennings and rhyming couplets. Poems with short lines seem to fascinate me more than those with lengthy lines.
I have also been getting back into my short story writing.
