I've started 2009 with LOTS of enthusiasm about writing new stuff and I will probably kill myself doing it. I want to write at least two new books this year...possibly three. I am working on a fictional novel called 'The Station', based on real calls in and around London and using characters I know well BUT I don't know if I should produce one big book or create a periodical short story series, like a soap opera. Let me know what you think.
I'm also writing a street-wise guide for paramedics-to-be and anyone else interested in the profession. This should be finished by the Summer.
Finally, I want to start work later in the year on a compilation of the funniest, stupidest stories that paramedics around the world have to tell from their own experiences. I'd like you to submit (by email) any stories you think may be fit for a book - I can't pay you 'cos that would be financially impossible BUT I will credit you (and if you have enough stories of your own, I may even give you a chapter with your name on it) Oh and you'll get free copies, the number would depend on your contribution and the publisher's discretion.
I have hundreds of professional readers around the world, so it would be great to hear from you. Remember you must submit them by EMAIL and they must be true...obviously you may elaborate a little to disguise the identity of people and places.
So, tell me what you think. This is going to be very hard work and my wife isn't pleased with me (she thinks I take on way too much) but I will go for it if there's a demand.
