Happy Easter


Hi there,

hope everyone is enjoying their easter break, I know I am. How about a change this year, for Dad anyway, instead of a chocolate egg why not get him something that will last a great deal longer? I’m talking about my new book obviously, it’s a great read with some exciting action, intrigue and enough thrills to make him sit on the edge of his seat. A real page turner, and if you don’t believe me because I may be just a tad biased, and who would blame you for thinking that right? after all, I did write it, you can check out the review here,

Anyway, whatever you’re doing with your free time this Easter I hope you all have a blast, be safe and I’ll see you all soon.

First review


Hi there,

I’ve received the first review to my first book today, here’s the link to the book and you can read the review for yourselves

http://www.amazon.com/Ronin-Adventure-Mr-Jan-Domagala/dp/1453850031/ref=pd_rhf_p_t_2

I would love for anyone else out there to post their opinions of the book on here or on any forum of their choosing, the more the merrier as far as I’m concerned. A wise man once said “There’s no such thing as bad publicity” I suppose what he really meant was that he didn’t care what they said about him as long as they were talking.

I welcome any and all comments, the floor is yours people

See you soon

New inspiration


Hi there,

a few days ago I spent an evening in the company of my nephew who bought a copy of my first book http://www.amazon.com/Ronin-Adventure-Mr-Jan-Domagala/dp/1453850031/ref=pd_rhf_p_t_2

He enjoyed it so much he’s asked if he could proof read my next for me. I mentioned this in an earlier post dated March 8 2011, Good news, bad news, he gave me his honest and frank opinion on the book which was mind-blowing to say the least.

I’ve always respected this young man, he was once voted young musician of the year in Staffordshire, he plays drums for various bands, teaches percussion in school, was one of the youngest ever to receive a black belt in karate in this country and he’s the son of my best friend, my big sis so as you can imagine, I value his opinion. I won’t bore you with the details I’ll just say that his review, when posted on Amazon.com will be an honest description of the book and I urge everyone to look out for it.

During our conversation we brain stormed a few ideas, I told him of the path I’d envisioned for the series to take and he was very enthusiastic which was more than a little encouraging. It’s difficult for any writer to know if he’s reached his target audience until the sales figures come in and this is the hardest part of the process. I think I’ve said before that writing a book is relatively easy compared to selling said book. With encouragement, hard work and enthusiasm though I hope to reach my goals as a writer in the next few years and with my nephews input and assistance the journey will be that much easier.

For any of you who do buy the book, you have my gratitude and the hope that you’ll stay with me through the journey to find out what’s in store for Kurt Stryder and everyone else in Col Sec.

See you soon,

Jan.

Wonders of a rainbow.


Hi there,

since my last post my partner and I have been sight seeing around where we live, we set off to visit the Lady Bower dam where the bouncing bomb was tested before its use in the second world war but due to a little memory misdirection, we missed it by a few miles and wound up in Grindleford, a few miles shy of Sheffield.

We had a lovely walk through the fields, alongside the river then stopped for a snack. We then continued for a while until the weather looked like it might take a turn for the worst and we turned around and headed back towards where we’d parked the car.

The rain that arrived as we were about a third of the way back started off as a drizzle increasing in intensity until we were quite wet before we reached the safe haven of the car. Almost as if God was laughing at us the rain stopped and the sun came out as we reached the car but then as we were on the way home he rewarded us with the most wonderous rainbow I have ever seen.

Looking at the colours of the rainbow as it arced over our path from one field to the next I was filled with the feeling of wonder  that I felt when I was young and could be amazed by such simple things. Stopping occasionally en route we took photos of the phenomenon and both of us were like young kids as we viewed it laughing at the beauty of it and absolute wonder we both felt at viewing it.

Life is being able to see the beauty around us and being able to appreciate it and I hope I never lose the childlike wonder  I felt today when I saw the rainbow.

See you soon and look out for rainbows,

Jan.

Simple things can put life into new perspective.


Hi there,

I’ve mentioned in earlier posts about how things have been not going as smoothly as I’d liked, well, yesterday things seemed to work out fine as, deep down I knew they would. Something inside me knew that my worst case scenario would not happen which helped me stay positive throughout the whole ordeal. My partner though, was more stressed than I as it affected her directly, anyway that’s all in the past now I hope.

Yesterday afternoon, after the usual weekly shopping trip, we decided to go for a walk along the Cromford canal.

The sun was shining, the birds were singing and the views were stunning. I’ve also mentioned in earlier posts that I now live in a beautiful part of the country near Matlock and yesterday as we were walking, it suddenly hit home that this is where I live and these beautiful surroundings I get to see every day.

I don’t know if it was the stress of moving in and everything that followed, the work issues and problems my partner was facing, but as I was looking around me as we walked along the canal it suddenly dawned on me that people go there to holiday and I actually live there, how lucky am I.

I may not have a lot of money, hardly any if the truth be told, but I have my health, the love of a good woman, a family who loves me and supports everything I do, as I do for them, and I live in a beautiful area so I consider myself to be among the richest men on earth.

Embrace everything you have in this world and cherish it for what it is, for, as we’ve seen in countless news reports from around the world, it can all end in an instant.

See you soon,

Jan.
