This here author, is giving away two of his own books, for this here blogger book fair. Wowsers. That’s the good news. The bad news is that they are digital copies only, ‘cos I’m too cheap to sign up to one of those print-on-demand places who want to charge me a bleedin’ fortune. If I was rich, I would do it, but you lot keep buying silly nonsense like Fifty Shades of Grey, so you only have yourselves to blame.
Right then. I’m not going to warble on about myself, as there isn’t much to tell if I am honest. I’ve been a brain in a jar for three hundred years now, so we probably don’t have a lot in common. About the most exciting thing that has happened to me recently, was when someone decided to top my jar up with some de-scaler. I know that this is a hard water area, but seriously, that was just plain daft.
Oh, alright then. I’m 33 and live in jolly England. We still don’t have decent dentistry over here, so my breath smells really bad. When I’m not writing epic novels, I like to relax by hiring a naked Frenchman to read me poetry.
The first book of mine up for grabs is called Shades of Grey. No, not the grotty erotic book, but a collection of three short stories. Now, before you all moan about how you don’t like short stories, you really should check these ones out. Maybe I’m biased, but they are jolly good. The first story is sort of a spy story, and has some action, intrigue, and death. The second one is set in WWII, and has a spot of action, no intrigue, but a sense of innocence and some death. The last one, which most people say is their favourite, is about a young boy with a special friend. There is no intrigue, not much action as such, but loads of innocence, a spot of death, and suspense. All of them contain some humour, and touch upon various aspects of morality.
The other book that you can win, is a novel called Underneath, but doesn’t have anything to do any films that
may share the same name. Now, before you all moan about how you don’t like novels, you should give this one a chance. I’m probably biased when I say this, but déjà vu infliction is one of my favourite hobbies.
The book is a thriller that stars a bloke called Hugh, who is a bit of a mentalist, along with two police officers that like a bit of banter and a bacon sandwich.
I hope all you hoppers have enjoyed this part of the hopping process, and stick around for a while. Robert is very kind for hosting me and my nonsense, and you are all very kind for taking part.
As a special treat Michael would like to offer up a couple of copies of BOTH of his books for some lucky commenters. TEN to be exact. That’s right, TEN people who leave a thoughtful comment on this post can win both of these books. Winners will be picked randomly at the end of the Book Fair (12:01AM July 30th)
