My loyal watchers and just-passing-by-ers!
Whilst you all know me as SaxonPride, the uppity DeviantArt user who perodically goes nuts and deletes his own work, my real name is Ron Green and for the longest time I have wanted to be a writer.
In many ways, my artwork has been but an extension of my writing - I write stories, I draw the characters.
My passion for both artistic mediums has been a driving force in my life, but only in writing have I ever displayed any level of talent.
And at long last I have gathered together some stories, ones I am proud of and can look back on fondly, and have published them via Kindle.
Van Goghed: Strange Stories for Strange Times is a collection of four tales I think you guys are going to love.
A tavern in 13th Century England is visited by the most hated man in the country, an old man declares all out war against his four-legged archenemy, an artist finds himself a prisoner of one of his own ideas and two old friends from University meet up again - but why has one of them got a football where his head should be?
Here's the page for my story:
Here you can read both the foreword to my book and a brief part of 'King Richard', the first story in the collection.
If you go there, have a read of the free sample and like what you see, why not give it a spin?
I have always wanted to be a writer, and whilst I never imagined getting into self-publication, I am quietly happy that I have taken a stand, manned up, stopped making excuses and done something.
People may like it, people may hate it, people may ignore it, but at the very least I can look back and know that when push came to shove, I decided to roll the dice.
Even by reading the sample and letting me know what you think here would be a real kindness to me.
I thank you, my loyal watchers, for your continued support in spite of my childish melodramatics, and hope that this is but the first step in showing the world the kind of artist that Ron Green really is
