PETER JAMES BOND
- WRITER & PUBLISHER -
My publishing started in 2012 with the release of The Spice of Life, my father's autobiography. This was followed by five more titles under the Scribbled Lines Publishing imprint. Initially using the services of CreateSpace, I later became a client of Blurb and now use that company as well as Ingram Spark. My first six titles are out of print, though I hope to release revised editions of The Spice of Life and Running Diaries Volume 1 in 2020.
I let the Scribbled Lines Publishing name registration lapse in 2019 and now publish under my own name. While concentrating on my own works, I also publish titles by family and close friends. My field of interest is philately (stamp collecting), evidenced by my Australian Commemorative Postmarks and The Postage Stamps of Aden books.
At the non-professional level, from 1987 till 1990 I was the editor and main contributor of Le Lion Rampant, the monthly magazine of the Peugeot Car Club of Tasmania. From time to time, I have had articles published in philatelic magazines in Australia and overseas. One of my goals is to finally finish writing and publish my (first!) novel. This is a down to earth science fiction work - if there is such a thing - with the working title Dragonfly Illusion. With about 50,000 words done, I put it at half-finished, or half baked perhaps.
My current project is a revised edition of The Postage Stamps of Aden which I plan to have on the market in September 2022.
