‘THE WORDS & THOUGHTS OF A DYSLEXIC MUSICIAN’

zoolon cover draft 4(Cover art by Rachel Carrera)

I was going to give this book the title, ‘Things That Happen to Me When I Glaze Over’ or ‘Pieces of Me’. Both of those were more or less accurate but, in the end, I decided upon ‘The Words & Thoughts of a Dyslexic Musician’ because that is what it is; that’s what I am.

Not a novel nor a book of poetry, it’s a collection of stories about the odd things that seem to happen to me on any average day, and things I’ve thought of or noticed when I’m not asleep. Also, I wanted a home for some of my favourite lyrics for songs I’ve written – some from my back catalogue plus others in raw form waiting in the wings for a melody – as well as a place for a few of the photographs I’ve been taking since I got the camera bug.

The main reason I went for ‘The Words & Thoughts of a Dyslexic Musician’ is because that’s the simple truth. Maybe I should have added ‘Colour-blind’ to the title because that’s a truth as well.  The problem was it made the title too long.

Anyway, here it is. My book. Dyslexia might be a nuisance I could do without, but ‘words’ come for free, and besides they don’t just belong to those who haven’t got trouble reading them, so basically nothing is impossible – well maybe me spelling without a spell-check, buttering toast, understanding road signs written in Walloon or spending a whole day in the body of say, a wildebeest just to get a feel for what it’s like being one. Those thing are impossible.

      1. My pleasure. I tried to buy it to support you but it told me it was only available for purchase in the UK. Let me know when it’s out everywhere.

        1. Thank Rita. That’s kind. I think if you type in ‘Zoolon’ anywhere in the world on Amazon both the paperback and the Kindle versions are available.

        2. Then search I shall. I love to support artists and your words are fabulous. As well as your music.

    1. Rachel, I truly never knew you were in hiding. After I wrote what I wrote I was just a bit worried people might have thought I’d kidnapped you and was planning to demand a ransom. Anyway, your skills at setting stuff up on Amazon and creating artwork are amazing. Thank you.

  1. Goodness me, congratulations, George! I love that none of your creations go to waste this way. Creativity can be a very lonely activity sometimes. Stories like yours can show fellow song-writers and authors both that the trials they face are not so strange after all. 🙂 xxxxxxx

  2. Love the title , Lord Zoolon. The very best to you with this awesome venture. This is so so exciting. I feel that sense of anticipation when great things are about to happen.
    So happy for you !!
