Keeping the Rudder Straight

Free ebooks for all readers at the new-look Colin Galbraith Official Website

Checkout the New Websites
As you may have heard, I’ve relaunched my website at, so please pop over and see what you think. If you’re a reader of crime or paranormal fiction, or have maybe read some of my stories before, it’ll be worth your while. By signing up to the mailing or ‘Liking’ my Facebook page, you’ll be entitled to a free copy of each of my next three ebooks.

That’s 3 novels – for free – for you – simply by pressing a button. Can’t be bad!

All of my poetry has been shifted over to the other me, Chas Stramash. You can find him at, where for a short time only, he’s giving away all his ebooks for free, Kindle for 86p, and print copies for £3 (25% off!).

Thanks to everyone who has written to me through email, Twitter or whatever, to send back good vibes about the new website and wishing me luck. All of your wishes are touching and very much appreciated.

New Write-Ups and Podcast
The wrap-up article to this year’s Edinburgh Book Festival and associated podcast, is available over at the (Unofficial) Edinburgh book Festival Blog [click here to read].

And I have two new gig reviews available as of yesterday for your enjoyment also:

The Fruit Tree Foundation gig I went to at Nobles Bar in Leith, with Withered Hand, James Yorkston, and Rob Jones [click here to read].

John Cooper Clarke at the HMV Picture House in Edinburgh [click here to read].

As well as all of the articles and launches mentioned above, I’ve also begun the final read-through and revision of BACCARA BURNING. It’s the perfect time for me to be doing it, and using the power of the Mac and other Apple-related technology, I’m able to do this work all throughout the day.

It won’t be long before the final draft is going out to some trusted readers for its first airing. *gulp*

Goals, Dreams, and Resolutions
I posted my GDR Review for October late last night [click here to read] – it was a good ‘un (yet again). Since last spring I’ve really been on a roll and despite a few setbacks along the way, I do actually seem to be going from strength to strength. What’s changed? Networking and having confidence in my own abilities has gone a million miles towards it, that’s for sure.

I’ll be posting my November GDR plan later on today after this blog post. There are a few wee niggly things I need to decide upon, but I’m not letting up. I’m staying focussed on what I know needs doing, refusing to let the oars bend and keeping the rudder straight.

Peace and out!
