Artists include:

  • Blind Boy Fuller
  • Floyd Council

James Bruce
SEO Expert, Marketer, Author, and Teacher


The scope of Jim's divers courses reflect his interest and proficiency in many subject areas. Earning a living online for 10 years now, his interests span topics such as on page SEO, to creating blues guitar lessons, to writing novels and movie scripts, to Wordpress Tutorials.

Writing primarily in the science fiction genre, Jim Bruce, is fascinated with the possibilities that this type of fiction brings, but also in the actual craft of screenwriting.

Jim devoured his dad's collection of science fiction books at an early age, often reading collections of short fiction collected together under titles such as 'Fantastic Stories', or 'Look To The Stars' under his bed covers way into the night.

The possibilities, the 'what ifs' of sci-fi provide Jim with the enthusiasm to live life to the full - anything is possible, and there are more things in the great out-there than we can possibly write about. Curiosity is the spur that drives him on to create, not just fiction, but political comment, music and poetry. 

Born in the North of UK in 1950, where he attended schools in Creswell, Nottinghamshire and Shirebrook. He has had more jobs than he can remember, including working in the coal mines, teacher, electrician, mechanic, circus laborer, farm hand, channel tunnel engineer, industrial robot programmer, website builder and professional blues guitar player/teacher.

He has been resident in UK, USA, Germany, France and Portugal, where he currently lives and writes.
