If it’s not ‘over’, then it’s ‘under’

“Over and Under” is a song from the skies (or beneath the ground). Either way, it’s probably new to you. Give it a try (from your seat, or from that hole in the ground you are in the process of digging for yourself).

The BBC in the North West of England moved its offices and studios to Salford Quays. You’ve probably read all those books that have been written about the event. You haven’t? Well, probably not, because there’s been no news reports, no reviews, no mentions – in particular, NOTHING on the BBC, on any channel, any programme, any arts show or news programme. Funny, that. Fancy the Corporation not wanting to admit that they’re being criticised on their home turf of Salford. After all, they’re getting enough flak about ‘Newsnight’, Jimmy Savile and everything else. Who needs Salford stuff? Not the BBC, apparently.

Book review – yeah, THAT book


It’s an ebook! First, it was a printed paperback, and that’s coming up soon, on Amazon. But, meanwhile, if you’ve got ANY kind of e-reading device, get on down to Smashwords and check out the ebook. You can download it to your device, or even laptop or desktop computer. AND, special bonus, you still get the glorious cover – in colour – by Jenny Andrews. 

Secret Garden Festival – the ebook


What’s that you say? There’s an evening of music and local videos at St Clements Church in Ordsall on Saturday night, 20th Oct, starting at 5pm with the AGM of the Ordsall Trust, followed by vids from Mike Atherfold about the LETS scheme and recent Secret Garden Festival. Then it’s singing until 11pm (for a £1 contribution). I can’t believe it!

Available on Meetup.com


It’s Sunday, which means you can download one of my ebooks for FREE.

Oh, sorry, I mean TWO ebooks. We’re talking about the ‘Olympics Omnibus’, which bundles together my novel about Olympics 2012 (with guest appearence by Prince William) and my 1995 novel about Manchester bidding for the Olympics, (plot spoiler: they lost).

All the best. Hope you enjoy.

Free ebook on Sunday


Here’s your chance.

All this week, right up to Saturday, the book about electing a Mayor in Salford is FREE to download from Amazon.

You don’t need a Kindle! If you look on the page, you’ll see links on the right to the FREE apps that will allow you to download Kindle ebooks to any old laptop, desktop, PC or Mac. That’s Mac, or PC. Anything.

Free book, anyone?
