I know what you mean about the loss of confidence in yourself. I have a neck injury and have been stuck indoors for four months, it has stopped me doing anything, no writing, painting, seeing
friends, and cant bear the fear of the symptoms coming on if my husband goes out, so he is a bit trapped too.
How is the film making going of your book it all takes such a long time doesn't it. No apostrophes as it is dark and I don't know where they are on my new computer - oh look one happened by accident.
Good afternoon, Daniel.
I have been enjoying reading your words, this afternoon. ~ What a lovely place to visit on a cold and snowy day! I hope all is well with you, and yours, and the new year is being most kind for you.
You will always be one of my absolute favourite gents, on Twitter.
I send my very best to you, and yours!
would you send me a signed copy to St. Petersburg? Payment with credit card if possible.

Good website! I truly love how it is easy on my eyes and the data are well written. I'm wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS feed which
must do the trick! Have a great day! fckddbfebdbe
Hi Daniel, I loved your tweet with the following poem in it.
Take your petty criticism
Take away your disdain.
Live your life removed from me,
As I quickly forget your name.
If it's okay with you I want to post it on my blog along with a mention of The Desolate Garden.

Thanks, Daniel, I needed that. I'm a cab driver in Tucson, Arizona, and am currently putting the finishing touches on a murder mystery I've been working on for three years. After working so hard on
it, I'm at the scary point of putting it out there and it helps to know that you have found success in similar circumstances. Congratulations. PS: I have a blog site (my homepage) where I tell
I have enjoyed your site very much. I especially liked what I read when I clicked the link 'why did I start to write'. It touched a nerve in me for reasons I won't go into here. Suffice I have an
understanding of that anguish.
I'm almost finished reading The Desolate Garden. Congratulations on a superb work!
I read many author sites as I am in the beginnings of my adventure as a writer--with seven grandchildren and MANY great-grandchildren. I must commend you on this site--it is personal, intriguing, and
I feel I know you a little.I look forward to reading your book.Thanks for inspiration=.
I sent you a facebook message in your "other" folder. I am a lifelong Anglophile from Rochester NY looking forward to reading the book.wish i could have been in your taxi when i was "over there"!
I really enjoy your poems and truisms. I look forward to reading them so I can Retweet them. Cheers.

Congratulations on your success.
I've just had my first book published through self publishing at age 63, Legacy Studios..I believe it's never too late...I'm a grandmother of ten and love your commitment to family..they are our
Love your . . . ahem . . . sarcasm and dry humor! Just found your page through my friend Sharon Lavy's hosting you on her blog. Gonna buy your book soon. :)
You like to talk about you? Ha. Don't all writers? Me? I've already learned at my age that everyone is boring unless talking about writing (mine, particularly) and/or my grandsons. :)
My debut novel, The Redemptin of Caralynne Hayman, is releasing from The Lighthouse Publishing September this year. A novel of a cult, abuse, revenge, and redemption. Hope shining through the
Great site. Love the tantalising taste of The desolate Garden. Books & writing are my passions too; my début novel is due for publication on 29 Aug. I hope the scared 8 year old gained revenge on
his beast of a father too. Sorry, more than 160 characters here, I know!
I can identify a bit with some of your trials you've been through in your life. Thanks for sharing. It brings me hope as I'm just beginning my journey to...being ok.

I really loved reading about you, your 'family' piece brought tears to my eyes, you obviously love kids. I work with them, and they never fail to surprise me. Looking forward to adding your book to
my list. Unpublished at the moment, I live writing too, several friends are reviewing Mystical Feathers for me ready for a rewrite in the summer.
Hi Danny, I hope it is the beginning of a meaningful friendship. We've met on FB. I'm a soccer mom, data analyst and fantasy writer from New Jersey. Glad to meet you and looking forward to reading
your book. You inspire me!
Hello Danny, I chatted to you at the end of the Self Publishing Summit in London on Saturday. I've been looking at your site - very impressive; how did you do it? Also, a query: I have published in
the US but am now looking at a UK publisher for ease of communication and marketing, and have been speaking to Liam from New Generation Publishing. Do you have any comments about your experience with
this company? Many thanks, Julia
Nice to see your page. We are looking forward to hearing more about the film adaption too. Are you writing the screenplay? Please pop by our Facebook page and add us if you can. And if you get the
time pop our name "miles Cobbett" in a search of Amazon.com and click on the cover n read three chapters for Free

I'm a recently published writer...My novel is too descriptive...too flowery according to some of the readers. But I love that very thing about your novel. You tune in all your senses as you write and
I feel that I can see where you are and those around you, clearly and I love that! Good luck with your novel and your movie! Hope you are a huge success!!! :)
Every writer is a heroe. The book-writing is a sacred profession. Only those with kind hearts always fought against all evils in a society with the power of pen. Pen power is more powerful than the
Nukes but it mends and never breaks. So you are in my eyes and I believe this is true.
Thank you for being with me.

Congrats on your accomplishment! I'm a Brazilian translator interested in translating your book into Portuguese.How do you like the idea?

Hi Daniel, I love your blog, and your book. Great website.
I look forward to the film of Desolate Garden.
Nice to meet you.
Some of your own pics would be nice. Even of your locality but of course London is/was your stomping ground. How magic is that.
Loved reading about your Family. My husband Dennis and i will be married for 30 years and I wouldn't have it any other way. We married young so no grand kis yet but getting close. Enjoy life and be
I'm coming from Twitter, read the synopsis, the abstract of chapter I and your bioflash. And liked it. By the way, I never liked writers who have always been writers only. Speaking about life
shouldn't be living just on words. (Soon launching http://metanya.com)
Hi, Danny. Tracked you down and found you! To think you have inspired me just from that "missing apostrophe" post! I've enjoyed your sharp-edged sense of humor and candor throughout this site. Now
I'm going to have to add your book to my reading list :)
I'm a new author with my first release coming out in October. Thanks for the follow on my blog. It's a great to hook up!

Daniel, I just finished perusing your website.
I love it. You are a very talented man. I truly enjoy and appreciate your style of writing. I will drop by, and visit, again. I am looking forward to reading your book. And yes, I will search for the
`missing apostrophe'. I have a penchant for locating such things, while I am reading. It is an annoying ability.
I thank you, for developing such a lovely and fun site, to visit. Warm Regards, ~Beannaichte'! Alicia O'Hara
Hi Danny, I wish you all the luck in the world with your novel. We are in a very competitive business, but we have to help each other when we can. My book is Deadly Pleasures and you can check it out
on my blog http://maryfirmin.blogspot.com.
Hi Danny! I am Tamy (the T.L.Burns part of What She Knew) and am so happy to be a friend of yours on Master Koda. I love reading your work and seeing the pictures you post.
I have not always been a writer, I was a minister for many years and worked with at-risk families in California and Texas. I loved it. Even though it was very exhausting.
A couple of years ago, my best friend and I set out to write What She Knew, an alternate history book about what if Marilyn had lived and what she knew saved JFK from being assassinated. Fun stuff
Well, since writing that book, my life has taken a totally different turn. I am now in Atlanta GA and she and I are about to have the book published (we self published at first); we are working on
the sequel; and we have written a screne play for book one and it is in line to be made into a movie.
Well, that's me in a nutshell! I look forward to reading more of your writing and seeing more of those wonderful pictures!!
I'm interested in reading your novel, will it be a physical book rather than an e-book? I collect signed independent novels.... I'm a POM living in Australia and an avid reader - mainly horror and
the classics. I like the sound of your novel. I'd like to read it then review it on my blog
I know how you must have felt. I, too, was a police officer and then a probation officer. I've seen every form of child abuse, and have been sickened by it. But, I stayed in the system, ultimately
becoming a lawyer and retiring early. I now write non-traditional westerns and am enjoying myself greatly. My first book, Mobley's Law, is being very well received and the second, "Curses, A Mobley
Meadows Novel, will be published in a few weeks. The third is on its way to completion. Good luck with your writing.
Your book sounds really good! Do contact me if you'd like me to read and review it for you - I can accept an e-book no problem if you have access to one. I also provide editing services, if that is
something you might be interested in in the future. At any rate, nice to meet you!
Lovely garden, thank you for sharing. I'll follow you on Twitter and come by this webpage for visits.

Beautiful website Danny. I loved the clean and neat look along with the interesting bit about where you live. Would like to meet your neighbour though... ;)Anyways, as eager about your book as you
are. I wish you all the best and a great success!
Hi Danny - I wish you luck with your book. Looking forward to hearing more about it. How did you find a publisher? I really want one. I finished my novel three months ago, know it needs some editing
but I think it's good!! All the best, Emma PS Please take a look at my personal blog - website below. It will give you an idea of how I write. How did you develop your writing style?
Kate and Bill Nichtern(Friday, November 25 11 03:00 pm GMT)
Enjoyed your desolategrden!

I was never sure whether I should believe all the stories you told me over the years. This one though, about writing a book (and getting it published), I believed immediately. In any case, it was
about time the Brits produced a really good crime writer, the Swedes have dominated for too long :)
PS. when's the film coming out?
Gavin Lagrange(Wednesday, November 16 11 12:43 pm GMT)
Good luck with the novel, i hope it gets taken up.
I look forward to reading more of your interesting comments and contributions in the John le Carré facebook group.

Hello Danny, a wonderful website. So looking forward to reading the book!!
