Jon’s Author Diary – August 25, 2023 #amwriting

Join the author’s adventure in sunny Morecambe as he embarks on a new space opera project, enjoys thrilling reads, and supports a noble cause.

Hello from sunny Morecambe!

Last week, I found myself overwhelmed by too many open projects, a struggle I shared with you all.

But then, as if by some cosmic joke, inspiration struck and I started a new project—a space opera with fantasy elements, set in the far future of my existing universe.

I outlined a trilogy and even wrote the first draft of a novella.

The words flowed and new worlds unfolded in my mind, sparking an excitement I couldn’t resist.

I continued reading the Horus Heresy series, immersing myself in “Mark of Calth” and “Vulkan Lives.”

Then a new thriller, “Fearless” by M. W. Craven, caught my eye and added a different flavour to my literary journey.

Outside the world of words, I’m excited about something very special happening on Saturday.

I’ll be taking part in the Cross-Bay Walk to raise money for Galloway’s Society for the Blind.

It’s a walk over Morecambe Bay when the tide is out, and it promises to be an incredible experience.

I invite you to support this noble cause on my Facebook page @joncronshawauthor.

And lastly, if you’re curious about my works, you can get early access to future stories on my Substack @joncronshawauthor. I hope to see you there, joining me in this ever-unfolding adventure.

Cross-Bay Walk for Galloway’s Society for the Blind

Embarking on my third Cross-Bay Walk for an incredible cause: Galloway’s Society for the Blind. Join me in making a difference!

Hello from sunny Morecambe!

For the third consecutive year, I am stepping out to the challenging terrains of Morecambe Bay to embark on the exhilarating Cross-Bay Walk.

But I’m not just walking for fun—I’m walking to raise money for Galloway’s Society for the Blind.

📅 When?

August 26th, from 12:30 PM to 4:00 PM

📍 Where?

Starting in the village of Sandgate, we’ll venture all the way to Chapel Island and back, with the experienced Guide to the Sands, Raymond Porter, leading us.

The journey covers approximately 5 miles of channels and quicksand (and if last year is anything to go by, gale-force winds).

Each year I’ve taken part has been  challenging yet immensely rewarding.

🎯 Why?

Your sponsorship and support will help make a tangible difference in the lives of those who benefit from the incredible work done by Galloway’s Society for the Blind.

🌟 How Can You Help?

Sponsor Me! – Your generous sponsorship will directly support the Galloway’s Society for the Blind.


Spread the Word! – Can’t sponsor? That’s okay! Sharing about this event and the cause on social media can also make a huge difference.

By supporting this event, you’ll be helping thousands see a brighter tomorrow.

Let’s work together to make this year’s walk the most impactful yet!

Warm regards,


P.S. Your contribution, whether big or small, makes a world of difference. 🚶‍♂️🌟🌊
