Verities, schmerities. Over at The D.

Did I mention...?

Over at yon Dabbler, I write about one of my favourite poems, Thomas Hardy's Midnight on the Great Western (and only incidentally about MY NEW NOVEL).

My novel is now available

I've written a novel, as I related here and here. I've been looking for an agent but haven't had any joy so thought I'd publish it as an ebook for the Kindle.

It's called Region of Sin and here's the blurb:
A novel of excitement and intrigue where corruption, international finance, espionage and terrorism intertwine to fatal effect, and where only love can offer redemption.
It's a thriller! But with some arty touches. Buy it here*.

For those of you who know me in real life I shall be conducting a short oral examination of its contents next time we meet. No excuses. For everyone else, I can do no more than plead. Buy it!

* Profits from this edition, such as they are, will go to the Royal British Legion.

This party on that party

I forgot to link to a review I wrote of Rupert Thomson's This Party's Got To Stop. I enjoyed it and thought it was very clever and effective. I don't get that reaction as often as I'd like so take it as a very strong recommendation.
