Free Book Downloads!

 
Well, I’ve finally succumbed to the idea ofgiving awaya couple of books in pdf format for anyone interested in Roman action / adventure stories for a limited period. Why free? I hear you ask.
 
It’s like this, they are really good reads and page-turners, both of them and I think you will enjoy them. No point writing books that no one gets to read!
 
I also have an ulterior motive. The‘AMULET I’book is the first part of a series but the second, third and fourth books are not going to be free.

Kindle, Literary Prizes and Bookshops.

 
Heard the other week my book ‘Barbarian’ has beenshort-listed for the Yeovil literary prize. It’s one of 13 out of about a thousand entries. I was really quite chuffed about that. I can’t see it winning though. I’ve been trying to get it published for more than a year and several literary agents have seen it but not taken it on. I suppose I could suggest it’s pearls before swine but I suspect it isn’t that. The book industry seems to be a contracting world and people working in it are understandably cautious.

London, Riots and Politicians

 
Not blogged for a while, so thought I should catch up on the old recent events thing.
 
Since the riots last week we now have two opposite views on why they happened and how to deal with it.
 
The Labour view, expressed by Ed Minibrain, is that this country has too many rich people who only care about money so it’s changed social attitudes and they should be taxed more, so that poor people won’t want to steal, assault policemen and damage property.
 
Then there is the Conservative view from David Cameras-on, shock horror, sickening and we’ll stamp them out and leave them homeless and that’ll teach them.
