Gerard Jones

When I started this blog I needed to find a voice. So I imitated Gerard Jones. He's the guy whose website for writers "Everyone Who's Anyone" is under threat from a big, nasty American corporation called NBC Universal.

Gerard is unremittingly upbeat (although he's a tad angry right at this moment), he turns every negative into a positive and he's also hugely entertaining. The thousands of hours work he's put into a site whose sole aim is to help struggling writers means that everyone who loves books owes him a huge debt. Now's your chance to repay that debt.

The Grumpy Old Bookman and Maud Newton have also taken up his case. Gerard has written a materpiece (his modest assessment) called "Ginny Good" and I'm off to Amazon right now to buy a copy.
