The story so far: since Christmas, in this brave new world of 2021, I’ve drawn attention to 2 e-books of mine (see below). The first one you’ll see is called ‘Everybody Lies’ and is Book 20 in the ‘Amelia Hartliss Mysteries’ series. The book below it (that is, mentioned earlier in the year), is called ‘Senctioned’ and is number 15, but in a completely different series (‘Mickey from Manchester’).
Hey, I thought you LIKED mysteries. You’ve wondered, well – 16? 17? doesn’t lead to 20. There’s something missing. You’re darn-diddly-darny-did-diddly-did right! There must be a book called 19 (nineteen) which comes before. So where is it?
More to the point, if you ever took advantage of the offer and started reading ‘Everybody Lies’ you would have been told that it’s Part 2 of a two-part series. Gosh darn it (again). You want to find out what happened in – Oh, now that’s a problem. We’re talking Book 19 (again). Where’s it got to? I can’t get hold of it, you say.
The simple answer is that Book 19 had a cover (which even e-books have) that the bookshops online said was not good enough. They wouldn’t put it on their shelves (their virtual shelves) until something was done. What, like find an artist and get a new drawing? Exactly that. A new cover, and you’re done, they said. Okay, here it is. New cover, same book, and below the picture, a link to an online bookshop (other bookshops are available).
Well, one good thing about Lock-Down and all this ‘STAY AT HOME’ stuff (In Capital Letters) is that I get to finish off a few novels and get them out there, loaded and available to new readers, pushing the steeds out of my stable – which is called, as you know, ‘Scanti-Noir’. (It’s a bit like the books you can get from Sweden and other Scandinavian countries, but that’s ‘Scandi-Noir’ and they are really gloomy. No, I’m not even half way full of gloom. I be a bubbly glass, maties.)
The thing is this: we live in a modern world, and have access to the greatest store of facts ever made available to humankind. So, we all know everything, right?
Mike says No. He brings up a simple point to get started, and yes, his argument makes sense. It’s a video, shot in the upstairs room of Ordsall Community Cafe. But you already knew that, right? No? Well maybe Mike is right in what he says. You try it and see. Click on the link and away you go. It’s Philosophy Major down there in Ordsall.
Well, shut that door! The City of Salford has finally made it into Wikiland, not for being a wonderfuel place to live, but because we’ve finally caught up with Doncaster – and got ourselves a properly elected Mayor. Well done us!
Crowd funding? Lots of people get together – in fact, a whole crowd of people – and each puts in a few quid. Then something happens, (which wouldn’t happen without their support). You get a nice warm feeling that you’ve made a difference, PLUS, depending on the amount, you get the chance of special goodies, all for you.
