Going The Write Way Up

Everyone has a book inside them and sadly this is where it usually stays. But as Richard Bach says, ‘a professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.’

Is writing a book such a big challenge? Not if you consider that by way of letters and emails most people have already written enough to complete several paperbacks.

There’s a formula for success. Using the advice given or learned I added my name to over 70 book titles and I have ghosted as many more. Remember, your typing finger is simply a spare tongue so let your finger do the talking.

Most wannabe authors are deterred by their inability to write to retail standards. But poor writing never discouraged successful authors like Jeffrey Archer or Stephen King. Their storyline inspirations are simply handed to a ghostwriter who writes their book.

Most books are brought to publishing standards by a ghost-writer rather than the person named on the book’s cover. Many well-known authors lend their names to the works of lesser-known authors. These include Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, and Clive Cussler.

Clancy’s publishers say: ‘Tom Clancy creates the ideas for these series and the writers execute Clancy’s ideas. All are subject to his supervision.’ 

It helps if the writer has experience with the subject. It is not unknown for hoteliers, social workers, healthcare workers, policemen and entertainers to make more money selling the story of their life than living it.

Biographies don’t sell well but romance and adult romance certainly do. The latter generates $1.44 billion each year and most buyers are women. Hot on the heels of adult romance are crime novels but with sales at $728 million crime is unlikely to close the thigh gap.

Mills and Boon shrugged off its maiden aunt image by adding Cherish and Dare Romance books which are more sexually explicit. The thrust of passion fashion is described by the book publishers as ‘erotically charged and irresistibly passionate.’

Size is important: The word count for romantic novels is 50,000 plus whilst the average paperback is likely to consist of 70 to 80k words. Don’t worry if you can only manage say 30,000 words. A good ghost should be able to make up the difference by adding flair and flow and of course dialogue. A sticking point for many new authors is an embarrassment but if a pen name is used who knows?

Will you make the Rich List? It’s a lottery but ‘if you’re not in you can’t win’. Certainly, becoming a published author is viable. A 10-day cruise or a state-of-the-art camera would cost more than ghost-writing and publishing fees. On the credit side of things, royalties recover some or all of one’s outlay. These tend to be 10 to 15 per cent of the cover price and are paid directly into one’s bank account.

THE RADICAL WHO TURNED TO WRITING NOVELS

Few people are born to become dissidents, political activists or revolutionaries. A random glance at the lives and aspirations of figures on the patriotic right reveals that all presumed to follow quite conventional careers.

Michael Walsh is no exception. As a child, the writer-journalist had a voracious appetite for the great classics and boy’s adventure novels. As he matured, his interest pivoted to penmanship. In 2011, the editorial team of the then prestigious Euro Weekly News voted solidly to honour him with the prestigious ‘Writer of the Year’ award and cup.

Euro Weekly News: Writer of the Year

Michael Walsh
Awarded ‘Writer of the Year’ 2011

Michael years ago sacrificed a career in conventional writing in favour of political activism and writing. However, the now author of 64 book titles is convinced that had he shunned political activism for conformist writing, he would have become one of Britain’s most successful writers. Michael Walsh today is said to be Britain and Ireland’s most successful writer of multi-topic books and novels.

As a ghost-writer, a professional who edits and prepares for publishing the stories of those less gifted, Michael ghosted many books. His clients included a world-famous movie star and an international playboy. Smiling, he says that the lives of the less well known are far more interesting and exciting.’

It was 1995 when Michael, with two young sons to care for and in an attempt to break the cycle of poverty, wrote A Leopard in Liverpool. But, it was years later before the city vigilante thriller was published on Amazon where it received many tributes.

In 2019 in a further attempt to break the cycle of penury, the gifted writer followed up with The Stigma Enigma, which in the opinion of many is far more believable than Death Wish the movie.

Making a break from city vigilante thrillers, the now recognised writer penned The Souls Meet, a delightful story based on a paranormal-romance theme. With plenty of twists and turns, a feature of Michael’s novels, The Souls Meet has an ending that leaves the reader with much to think about.

Convinced he had the talent to match and even surpass the best of British novelists Michael Walsh was likened to John le Carre, the legendary writer of many British spy novels. The aspiring writer then turned his pen to writing the romantic comedy, The Dovetails.

This hot, raunchy and passionate affair certainly roused feelings, imagination and laughter. The Dovetails is finely chiselled together with precision and attention to detail. Obviously, Michael has a firm grasp on the depths and fantasies of women. Just off for a cold shower! The Dovetails is a recommended read,’ writes Annie Beverley Stamp of Merseyside.

Such was the success of The Dovetails which is based on an endearing ménage a trois romance that writing a sequel to the popular and admittedly adult content romantic-comedy was the next logical step.

Sex Fest at Tiffany’s, the most recent romantic comedy by Michael Walsh could easily qualify for the Book Title of the Century award before the first page is turned.

The title Sex Fest at Tiffany’s is a clear indication of the author’s consummate skill in innovation. It has been said that Michael’s style of writing has revolutionised romanticism. But, that is for Michael’s international readership to decide.

Philosophical, Michael Walsh says he suspects there are some who regret his departure from unconventional financially unrewarding writing.

He smiles: ‘You cannot make a living from niche writing. Had many followers in the past been more supportive then it would never have been necessary for me to write as a conventional novelist. Others put their jobs and careers first; I now do likewise and hope that I have not left it too late.’

HE KISSED YOU WHERE, DEAR

Elegant manners are unfortunately a thing of the past. Holding a door open for a lady is no longer delivered with a dash; offering her your seat or standing when she enters a room may be seen as gauche. 

Unused to small courtesies, younger women may feel a little embarrassed when you open a car door for them or help them on with their coat. Do you still tip or raise your baseball cap to a lady?

The ultimate in gallantry was surely hand-kissing. To get a preferred lady eating out of your hand you need first to kiss her hand. There is a right way and a wrong way. If you get it right then the door to her boudoir and her inner sanctum is open. Get it wrong and you sleep in the garden shed.

Hand-kissing is not uncommon in certain social circles or societies. In Poland, the salutation shows impeccable taste in manners and in ladies.

Hand-kissing is a wonderful way to greet a lady. There are only two social occasions when hand-kissing is acceptable: If you already know the lady or if she has been introduced to you and she offers her hand.

Never raise the lady’s hand to your lips. The art demands that you stoop to kiss her hand but you don’t actually do so. The correct procedure is to bend in a courtly manner and gently place your hand under her palm at which point your thumb will cross her knuckles. Bending as in a curtsy you then brush your thumb with your lips. Only if you know the lady is it permissible to touch the back of her hand with your lips.

If you are something of a roué, a bit of a lad, that is, then there are variations on a theme which are a little more intimate. I do hope you know what you are getting yourself into. Get it wrong and you’ve got problems so be sure the lady concerned isn’t likely to take offence.

Gently turn the palm of her hand upwards and with dry lips kiss her palm. This implies extreme adoration. You then close the lady’s hand on the kiss and murmur something along the lines of: ‘I pray you; keep this as a memory of me.’

If you lightly lick her palm it suggests you wish for a more intimate acquaintance. If you can’t do it with élan then don’t do it as she will kill you where you stand.

There is a variant but don’t try this one unless you are on very intimate though not necessarily sexual terms with the lady. You can bring a duchess to her knees when this approach is delivered with a cavalier flourish.

Raise her hand just far enough so you can gaze like a spaniel into her eyes. Then with a dry tongue gently lick the cleft between her two middle fingers. If she swoons then catch her and do make sure you remembered to bring your Viagra.

The no-go areas of hand-kissing: You never force your attention on a lady; you respond to her hand being offered. If her glove remains on then forget the hand-kiss of any kind.

Wet sloppy kisses or sucking her finger suggests you are a prize twit. Clicking your heels is out of period. And, you will make a laughing stock of yourself if your kisses continue up your lady’s forearm.

Hand kissing is an art form and should always be done with panache, a courtly bow and a murmured appreciation. Good luck   …   to both of you.

Spanish Skipper Who Saved an Armada

Enugu Palm in colour

Never forgotten was the drama as the Palm Line freighter Enugu Palm after finally answering the wheel skimmed by a metre or two a row of ocean-going freighters moored at the port’s quays. A second’s delay on the part of Captain Inés would have led to one of the worst shipping disasters in African history.

Had it not been for the quick thinking of the skipper several freighters moored at the Ivory’s Coast Port of Abidjan would have been devastated.

Enugo Palm at dock

Palm Line, a British-owned shipping company, plied 5,000 miles West Africa’s seaboard. In the early 1960s, the company’s commodore was Spanish Captain Inés, whose hands-on character was legendary. He never suffered fools so I got on perfectly well with him.

Palm Line vessels were specially designed to negotiate the sand bars of the African creeks that otherwise excluded entry to liners that might otherwise bring trade to communities located to the Dark continent’s interior.

Ibadan Palm deck cargo

The Port of Abidjan on the Ivory Coast, however, is a modern port. Having picked up the pilot at the port’s approaches, Captain Inés, in accordance with the protocol, surrendered control of the Enugu Palm to the pilot. The local pilot’s knowledge of the port is essential for safe mooring.

On this occasion, it soon became self-evident that all was not quite right. The recently boarded pilot was blind drunk and quite incapable of riding a bicycle let alone a fast-moving ocean liner in the narrow confines of a port.

Enugo Palm

The Enugu Palm did successfully negotiate the port’s Vridi Canal without colliding with its palm thronged banks. As an 18-year-old Ordinary Seaman standing at the ship’s wheel I was best placed to see the unfolding drama as the pilot inexplicably instructed the engine room to full ahead. After all, we were now approaching a lengthy quay along which several freighters were moored.

African creeks

Riveted, I watched the expression of growing alarm on the face of Captain Inés. Racing at full speed, about 25 kilometres per hour, the Enugu Palm’s bow was clearly destined to cleave the nearest moored freighter in two. I must have been the only British sailor ever to witness a port pilot being roughly cursed and physically shouldered aside as a ship’s captain resumed control of his doomed laden ship.

Rushing to the telegraph, bells clanged alarmingly as Captain Inés swung the lever to Full Astern. Simultaneously, he ordered me to swing the wheel hard to port. The rest was down to fate. Unlike a car, a ship can travel a long way before it responds to a change of command.

Michael Walsh was a British Merchant deckhand (AB) during which time his ships scoured sores of seas. By the time he was 24-years of age, he had visited, lived and worked in over 60 countries. His sea memoirs, Believing of Liverpool is crammed with fascinating stories, images and anecdotes.

TO THE APPLAUSE OF BATMAN AND SUPERMAN

Most retirement gifts organised by work colleagues are memorable for all the right reasons. However, there are some departure gifts that for all the wrong reasons are best forgotten. Sadly, we remember them forever as long as forever lasts.

This is what happened to a senior gentleman in France, who was gifted a surprise-surprise test flight at one of the country’s airbases.

Thrilled to bits, the delighted retiree was appropriately attired for the flight ahead. Nervously, the man was helped up the ladder to the jet’s canopy-covered cockpit reserved for pilot and co-pilot.

Regrettably, soon after take-off, the 64-year-old man unintentionally ejected himself while flying in the Dassault Rafale jet. At the time of his quick exit, the jet was travelling at over 500km/h (320mph) and was flying at an altitude of 760 metres (2,500 feet).

According to reports, the force of the fighter jet’s take-off caused the man to instinctively bolt upright. As the luckless passenger did so, he carelessly grabbed the jet’s ejection lever to steady himself.

Spectacular fail! As he did so, the co-pilot’s canopy snapped open. The ill-fated passenger then shot out of the aircraft in a spectacular display that would have earned a round of applause from Batman and Superman.

Sadly, one failure was not enough. Caught up in the excitement of experiencing his first flight in a fighter jet, the unwitting co-pilot had also failed to securely attach his helmet, losing it mid-air, which worsened his situation to near critical.

According to investigators, as he boarded the aircraft, ‘his heart was in full tachycardia’, ranging from 136 to 142 beats per minute even before the incident. All things being equal, the ill-fated passenger was a little unprepared for the take-off.

The unfortunate passenger’s parachute, however, saved his life. The man managed to land without sustaining any serious injuries. He was taken to the hospital afterwards. The pilot also avoided a catastrophe, finishing the flight safely.

20225718lpw-20228761-embed-libre-jpg_7032394

The man did not plan the flight himself. Employees of his firm arranged it as a nice surprise birthday gift. They organised the send-off with aircraftsmen based at the Saint-Dizier Airbase. It never occurred to anyone to ask the fighter jet pilot where he thought his passenger had disappeared to.

Schadenfreude is a German term that translates into deriving humour from another man’s misfortune. I am sure no one reading this story is experiencing Schadenfreude.

MAKING MONEY AND MIRTH FROM THE DOVETAILS HOTEL

TAKING A BREAK from loss-making real historical research and publishing, Michael Walsh turned to penning novels. He believes fiction based on real-life holds out far more promise of a far wider readership.

Michael, who now has 64 titles with his name on the book covers, says ‘it is early days as I am otherwise branded. I have yet to become recognised as a novelist. Book buyers aren’t influenced by book titles; it’s the name on the cover they go for. I was until recently an unknown as a writer of good fiction but I am making up for the shortfall fast.

He says that his serious historical works once accounted for 95 per cent of his book sales. He adds that as this is a niche market his income from royalties, which he donated to charity anyway, were minimal.

‘Amazon removed some of my book titles. Real history books are considered politically ‘off message’. Now, the shortfall is being taken up by books that avoid mention of World War II.’

The Dovetails, his latest novel shows signs of being a best-seller. Michael says, ‘I am not at all driven by dreams of wealth; I simply need financial security from a predictable income. This was missing from my life.

‘I have to add that creating storylines and characters as a writing experience is far more pleasurable.

The story of The Dovetails (Hotel) is based on the love, social and business lives of hotel owners, Leonora and Felicity assisted by residential handyman Gareth or randy-man as Felicity describes the loveable Lothario.

Michael smiles, ‘Whilst creating these delightful people I became a Carlo Collodi. The Italian novelist created the imaginary Pinocchio, who then became a real person. As I penned the novel, Gareth, Leonora and Felicity became real people just as Pinocchio had become real to Geppetto, Pinocchio’s woodcarver creator.

‘I was always impatient to return to writing their story. You see, somewhere, The Dovetails Hotel chronicle became less my story than their story. As my pen did its work, Leonora, Felicity and Gareth seemed to take over and it became their story rather than mine.

My imaginary friends became almost as real and as endearing as my family. So much so that I even considered paying tribute to them in the dedication rather than the foreword. I became less of a creator and more of an observer. As does a copyist, I allowed their ghosts to direct my writing.

I was downhearted on reaching the end of their story as Gareth, Leonora and Felicity prepared to leave. Sorrowfully, I asked, ‘will we see each other again?’

Leonora smiled, ‘it depends. Perhaps we will.’

‘I hope so,’ whispered Felicity, who I sometimes referred to as Facility. ‘You told our story and you told it as I would have had if I been a writer.

Turning to Gareth, my eyes told his story and he read my heart as I took his hand.

‘I will miss you as you disappear into the ether of my imagination, my good friend. Will I see you again, I asked,’ as I firmly took his hand.

‘Ask your imagination,’ he smiled. ‘She has the answer.’

But, what is The Dovetails all about? A risqué romp in out and under the sheets sensually and provocatively describes the most forbidden of romantic relationships, the ménage a trois. The Dovetails Hotel is owned and managed by comely and beguiling divorcees, Leonora and Felicity.

After Felicity meets blind date Gareth on a mutually arranged tour of Europe, the engaging Jack o’ all Maids is subsequently taken on as the hotel’s resident repairman.

As the ménage a deux converts into a ménage a trois the most eyebrow-raising interludes are accompanied by risqué humour, girl-talk, dilemmas, compromises, lurid sex, romance, and at times pathos.

THE DOVETAILS Michael Walsh Amazon Books is a page-turning good read filled with entertaining dialogue, pathos, despair, bawdiness, ribald humour and real-life between the book sheets.
