My name is Dylan Hearn and I am an author. It has taken me a while to admit this. I started this blog because I wanted to write, so I wrote about many different things, but over time the blog has become focussed on the act of writing and self-publishing. This doesn’t mean I’m anti- traditional publishing but I have little experience of it.

I rarely, if ever, talk about how to write, but I often talk about everything around it. Luckily, a few people have found my thoughts valuable (I ignore the ones that don’t).

Disclaimer: I limit myself to spending only one hour on each post, plus a bit of extra time for editing, because I prefer to concentrate on writing my fiction. However, this does mean you may find the odd typo or grammatical error. I blame my fingers.

To date I have released two books of my Transcendence Trilogy and am currently working on the third. I may occasionally talk about them. To find out more about them, please click on the links below:

  1. Great blog man. For the record in the U.S. military we write and say the date 4 July, 6 November, etc… Even though I have been retired four years now, I still write it this way.

    Thanks for today’s activity suggestion. Taking my four year old outside right now to teach him about Blue Tits. Praying for same result.

    • Hi! You’re more than welcome and thanks for dropping by. It would be great if we can start a new transatlantic craze. Thanks for the update on the dates. It’s nice to know there is still a part of the US that can write them properly 😉

  2. Are you going to do the NaNoWriMo next month?
    I wrote the first half of mine that way last year and find myself wondering if I have the energy and courage to finish it this October.
    It certainly concentrates the mind to have to write 55.000 words in 30 days 🙂
    [aprille dot me]

    • Possibly, I haven’t decided yet. It all depends how quickly I finish my edits to this book and if I have enough time to plan out the next one. I’m very, very tempted though…

  3. Congratulations on the publication of your book 🙂 I wish you all the best with it. It sounds interesting! I’ll have to add it to my ever-growing list of books to read. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    Take care!

    • Hi,
      Thank you so much for the nomination. I’m afraid I don’t accept these type of awards but I really do appreciate the sentiment behind it. I hope you understand.
      Best regards,

  4. Guess what – I’ve nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. You can see how it works on my award post here (http://awritersnotepad.wordpress.com/2014/02/24/versatile-blogger-award/. If you decide to participate, you just need to follow the rules for the award, which are:

    • Display the Award Certificate on your blog (just cut-and-paste it from my post)
    • Write a post and link back to the blogger who nominated you – that’s me!
    • Nominate 15 other bloggers (I’ve kept to 10 as 15 seemed quite a lot)
    • Inform them of their nomination via comment on their blog
    • Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

    Whether you join in or not, I just want you to know that I nominated you because I love your blog and thought you would like to see it – and Second Chance – shared with some new readers.

    • Hi Ilka, thank you so much for the nomination, it really means a lot. Unfortunately I don’t like to get involved in these awards. I do appreciate the sentiment, though. Dylan

  5. Nice to meet you, Dylan. It seems like we have a lot in common. I look forward to reading all about your writing adventures and maybe you’ll read about some of mine 🙂

  6. Hi, Dylan. I’ve just finished reading Second Chance and really enjoyed it. Amazon and Good Read reviews will be forthcoming when I’m organised! I blog all books I enjoy as well 🙂

    • Thank you, Justine. What a lovely Friday surprise! I am both touched and humbled that you enjoyed Second Chance, and that you took the time to let me know. I can wait to read your thoughts.
      Thank you so much once again.
      Best wishes,

  7. Good morning Dylan,
    Good to hear that you are in Suffolk. We are a recently formed internet based writers group. Our membership is smallish but active and growing. We help aspiring writers to become accomplished scribes and welcome articles blogs etc from authors. Happy to include promotional links providing they meet the usual, honest, legal, decent etc.. criteria and are also looking for proof readers/ editors/ 1 : 1 mentors – people who would like to partner with us.
    Hope to hear from you

    • Thank you, Sue. Yes, I don’t often take part in awards but it doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate them, especially when coming from somebody whose own blog I admire, so thank you.
      PS – Thanks also for unknowingly reminding me that my about page needs updating!

  8. Hi! Nicholas Rossis recommended that I reach out to you. I’m working to launch a new sci-fi magazine. Nicholas is one of the authors for the first issue, and we are working to promote a Kickstarter to launch it in style. I’d love to send you an info sheet so that you can help spread the word!
