Interesting information about a hearing condition called tinnitus from Sue Vincent
Today there will be a two minute silence, an act of Remembrance. How many will hear it?
‘Quite. Do you realise that the word silent and the word listen are comprised of the same set of letters arranged in a different order?’
‘And what can be gained from listening to the silence I wonder?’
‘Well, nothing actually because you can’t listen to silence you have to listen in silence. Try it!’”
Heart of Albion: Tales from the Wondrous Head
Outside the world sleeps, birds are silent, there is no noise from the road in the pre-dawn darkness. I have to get up. It was the silence that woke me. It often does.
The kettle is on, filling the kitchen with prophetic, protective noise. The fridge hums and the computer whirrs. The dog whimpers and chases birds in her dreams, snoring occasionally. I am grateful. It is, for me, a…

The next Iron Man…talk about inspiration!! AWESOMENESS!
I would like to thank Charles Ray‘s fantastic book review blog and also everyone that takes the time to read my blog. I am very honored to be nominated for this award that I will proudly display on my site.
Now I reveal 7 things about myself you may or may not have known.
1. I wrote my first novel in High School. Chapters were sold for $0.25 cents each…It kept my car in gas.
2. My favorite book is “Peck’s Bad Boy and his Pa“.
3. When my son and daughter were born, I was in the room watching.
4. I have the honor of being married to the same woman for forty-five years. If I had to do it again, I would in a heartbeat.
5. My first published novel, “The Wolf’s Moon” was written in longhand and took about a year or so to finish.
6. I love to watch nature, watching flowers grow in one of our many gardens. Sitting in the room where I write I watch the animals drink from the creek.
7. Most of all, I love working with my wife each day, meeting all of the wonderful people around the world and reading their thoughts in blogging.
Oh yeah, did I mention anything about woodworking? No? Well, maybe next time.

“If stones are their thing and they undoubtedly are, then they really should have been here,” he said shaking his head forlornly.
The two of them had just spent the best part of three hours scrolling through the Govan stone museum security footage and had drawn a definitive blank.
“Maybe they don’t plan anything,” said Kraas, brightening somewhat at the thought.
“Don’t plan anything?” said Jaw-Dark as if she was talking in a foreign tongue. “So how’d they find all the other stones then..?”
“Maybe they were guided.”
“I don’t know,” said Kraas. “The spirit of stones or something…”
When Ben is arrested for his part in Wen’s daring scheme to re-site a standing stone, Don and Wen head north, unaware that they are being followed by the police and a mysterious shadow they call the Black Shade.
Join them as they are led by enigmatic carvings through the countryside of England and Scotland, seeking to unravel the ancient mysteries of the stones…
Lands of Exile: BUT ‘N’ BEN
For once, Don was right… it was all Wen’s fault.
If only Ben had not insisted in going back for the gun…
Don and Wen should hand themselves in and share the fate of their co-conspirator. It would be the noble thing to do.
Does this course of action appeal to our errant duo?
Not on your Nelly!
As Ben languishes in the dank cells of Bakewell Gaol, Don and Wen hit the road. Their headlong dash for freedom takes them north, where they are beset by a host of ‘Orphan Stones’ clamouring to be led back home.
But they are not alone… and the sinister Black Shade is not the only thing dogging their heels as they blaze their unorthodox trail through the signs, seals and sacred sites of old Albion…
About the authors:
The writing partnership of France and Vincent has a peculiar alchemy of humour, scholarship and vision that has given birth to several books, including the Triad of Albion and Doomsday series. But ‘n’ Ben is the first book of the Lands of Exile. The second book in the series, Bean Sidhe, is due for release in spring 2016.
France and Vincent share a love of lore and land; together they explore the mysteries of the ancient hills and sacred places of Britain. They may occasionally be observed in one of the many old inns they stumble upon, talking over their adventures. Or throwing tennis balls for an insatiable small dog.
