Dear Paul I am delighted to hear from a nephew of Jack Baragwanath. And I am pleased you enjoyed my short reference to him. He was very encouraging to me in particular and was a source of inspiration that contributed to my eventual determination to go overseas and become a foreign correspondent. It is terribly sad that his life and work were cut short. He would have achieved much more in the field of journalism and his life generally. Best regards, Ian

I first published Nanyang, my new historical novel, as an Amazon eBook. [See: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006PHIPU4]. I then went on to produce a print edition - a more challenging task. The 700-page paperback is now available at: http://www.amazon.com/Nanyang-Mr-Ian-Gordon-Stewart/dp/1468153013 The culmination of ten... Continue reading

Hi Melanie Thank you very much for your reply. Just to clarify, if you to go to Google and search for “Ian Stewart Nanyang”, along with Amazon and various publishers, the Google search page says “Join Typepad and start following Ian Stewart’s activity.Join now! Already a member? . . .” Then a few words from my blog: “I first published Nanyang, my new historical novel, as an Amazon eBook . .” (Amazing how all this gets mixed together on Google!) Then if you click on this you get my profile – and the toolbar. So you are saying no one else would see my toolbar? Try it yourself. (You might even want to read the book.:-) )

No weird ads but a weird and alarming appearance on Google, when I was looking for a reference to my new Amazon book, of my Typepad Profile Page complete with the toolbar allowing anyone access to Dashboard, Library and Account! How is this possible and how can I prevent it?

Hi Poney Zeng How did you become interested in jewellery? Sounds like an interesting profession. Regards, Ian
Hey guys and girls, I would rather have a link to favored blogs than have them plastered all over my dashboard.:-) And don't need previous posts listed in brief. Now there is too much clutter.

Auren, I think rather than "have an intense ambition to be more successful then both parents", they should have parents who encourage them to greater success.

That's great, folks. But I still have to look at the Blocked followers on my Dashboard. I have blocked everyone of the intruders on my Dashboard and also the followers listed (the same?) on my profile. They have disappeared from my profile but not from the Dashboard. Can they be deleted somehow?

I hope cleaning up the splogs means getting rid of the mass of them cluttering up my dashboard. A maddening situation.

From book to blog Good luck with the book, Stephanie Ann. It's a tough market out there these days. Cover looks great. I have posted three of my old out-of-print books on my blog together with two for which I have yet to find publishers. I am currently writing a historical novel set(mainly)in SE Asia. The blog is a great way to put one's work "out there". In the old days, the typewritten copy was likely to be relegated to a drawer after being knocked back by publishers. Best wishes, Ian Stewart

I'm all for it! (We octogenarians have to stick together.) Besides, 80 plus isn't that old. Keep in mind, by the time all you young boys and girls get there, 80 will be the new 60.
