Daily Writing Journal: My London Hood - St Pancras Square - Where the Google and Universal Creatives hang out!


In between Kings Cross Station and St Pancras International (the train station to Europe) is the new St Pancras Square. New in that given most of the streets and squares in London are hundreds of years old. This is the home of Google and Universal. There are also the some typical restaurants and high-end fast food chains for those creatives to chow at. Namely Leon, a bar and another Far East restaurant.

What I find intriguing is the there appears to be some apple macs in the google offices, don't quote me on that. They also have a gym where you can see them working out, and it's rumoured they get free food, again rumoured or alleged.

This is the universal lot, the building looked unfinished but I didn't take a picture of that. I have an old but I needed to meet this.

What I find quite interesting is at lunch time, there is a particular restaurant at the back in the Granary Square where it seems full of people having lunch meeting on expense accounts.  It's very bizarre and weird because after 2 pm the restaurant practically empties.

This is a picture showing the St Pancreas station. There are lots of gothic and neo-goethic buildings in London which I never noticed before doing this blog. One rarely does around looking at building in one's home town. Normally, I'm just going about my business and interested in getting to my destination.

Doing this blog had made me appreciate the magnificence and magic of London's building. I don't take pictures at every opportunity or if I do, nor do I post them but I am appreciating  this city more. I do have some posh locations for my book - partly set in the fictional US city, Forechester and London  so I'll feature them when I'm writing a scene.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

HAPPY NEW YEAR - LET THE GOALS ROLL

Hello all. Happy New Year! So last year was awesome for me because I managed to achieve one goal. The biggest goal which was to get a new job. And that came with financial reward as well. Yay! It was hard, challenging, horrible. I hate change but I had to get out of the rut I was in. Dudes, I was desperate to move. So I dug deep, did my interview practice, attended a number of interviews and hit one. Yay. Now longer gaming. I didn't need the escapism with my new positive work environment. I also abandoned the iPhone family and went Android. To cut a long story short, I got bought an iPhone 8 but it was faulty - however Apple weren't transparent about their return policy - ALWAYS ASK ABOUT RETURN POLICY. Nor did they believe the phone was faulty. It was. Anyway I was so disgusted the arrogance of the 'apple people', I decided instead of getting a replacement to spend my money elsewhere. I'm still part of the Apple family. But the Apple Store sales assist

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here.
