I've spent most of the past week setting up an author's page on Goodreads.
Its actually been a lot of fun as I had to review almost 50 books, going back many years to remember long forgotten novels. I thoroughly recommend the exercise - it brings back a lot of happy memories.
I'm also actively involved on Book Blogs, whilst my blog followers is now in double figures.
My latest project is called MMM Number 1 which is a cookery book for Kindle. I will be getting one hard copy of it from Createspace - but this is just so that I have a cover for Amazon. The cover will show a mouthwatering paella - if all goes to plan!
The book contains 50 recipes, and I am preparing an article for High Peak Review as to the background to the project.
Had a lot of fun today making, filming, photographing and eventually eating the paella! Pictures available here soon - and the video will be put on Youtube.

Cover notes from Stags!
Michael Madden has worked for many years in the IT industry, as a result of which he has been quoted in publications as prestigious as the New York Times, however, until recently writing has been very much a part time occupation. He published the children's picture book "Ole And Zac And The Port Of Tumbattle" (FASTPRINT PUBLISHING, 2010), and he has had several articles published in newspapers and magazines. His subject matter is varied, ranging from the growth in Print On Demand publishing, to articles on Olympic hopefuls, and even a preview and review of a performance by rockabilly legend Sleepy Labeef, that included an interview with the singer himself.
Michael is currently working on an Edgar Allen Poe type poem about zombies and vampires!!!
