Fleedleflump (known locally as Michael Bell) is an enigma wrapped in a Dime bar, a sumptuous meal with a nutty aftertaste, a sandwich board shouting inanely of love, fantasy, and perception.

In more mentally balanced tones, he is a young(ish) [Oh, alright so I'm 37 and kidding myself!] writer who has been fiddling with his craft since the age of eight. He's also tried his hand at photography, music composition and production, and graphics, but he always returns to the written word.

He has four novels to his name, several of which can be purchased via his Amazon author page (CLICK HERE TO VISIT);

Duelists - 114,000 words and in serious need of a re-write, so watch this space

Bran's Torment - 118,000 words, written with the help of Fanstory and currently available on Amazon.

Onekka - 55,000 words, written at breakneck pace in 17 days for the 2011 National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), and also available on Amazon.

Warped - newly completed in July 2013. 114,000 words of YA adventure currently seeking representation. Given most agents will take on self-published novels, he will be arranging for this to be available on Amazon soon.

Chronicles of the Wandering Man, his post-apocalyptic narrative poem, won a Fanstory Seal of Quality award and is available on Kindle.

He also has a few work-in-progress novels, many (thanks to Fanstory) short pieces, and hundreds upon hundreds of poems to his name. One day he fully intends to make his living with words...

Since joining Fanstory he has come to understand that punctuation is a matter for mass debate, form does in fact sometimes work, and what you think you know IS what you know, but not if you know it. Know what he means?

Be warned, he has a truly dark streak in his sense of humour, and he's not afraid of carving it into clowns' faces.
You don't need eyes to see, you need vision.

I'm hoping this will be an effective marketing tool for my published works.

Fleedleflump: Warped is now available to purchase!

Warped Cover eBook

You can get it from my Amazon author page in either Kindle or paperback format. If you buy the paperback, you should get the Kindle version free. (CLICK HERE TO VISIT)

It is also available from Smashwords and Createspace, and will soon be on Apple, Sony, Barnes & Noble, Google Books and several other outlet channels.

Many Fanstorians helped me put this novel together and I can't thank them enough. I'd be immensely grateful if you'd help spread the word!

Mike :-)
