    Ep 130 – Audio Version of New Book: Work In Progress

    Patreon and Paypal link –
    This episode is the audio version of the latest book I am currently writing. New chapters are added as I write them.
    The story is about the adventures of Ernie, a disgruntled musician whose life begins to unravel when he starts finding notes written in his own handwriting purporting to be from himself in another place in time and space.
     As I mention in this episode, this current work in progress is based around my last book The Gentle Snap which is available on Amazon.

Customer Reviews

Vincent Keeling ,

My favourite podcast

I have to say to this is my favourite podcast out there. Wonderful interviews by John Dalton with some of the worlds best figurative artists out there. He has a warm easy going manner, and has a talent for drawing out some really wonderful stories, insights and compelling conversation from his guests. A must for all artists looking for some virtual artistic company as they paint, draw or sculpt.

PepePareja ,

Very Interesting

Not only has John got a mind full of interesting philosophical thoughts to share, but he is highly entertaining to listen to. I especially enjoyed episode number 12 - The cosmic Joke.

Fit-For-Trouble ,

Episode 9
