Devil’s Work for Idle Ink

Posted: September 4, 2017 in Uncategorized

Forgive me. It’s been quite a while since my last post. But I haven’t been completely idle in that time. The devil makes work and all that… So anyway, I thought I’d stop by to share the news with you that one of my all-new short stories ‘Wretched is my Name’, has been picked up for publication by Idle Ink. It’s the 144th short story I’ll have had published, so there.

To Amazon, where ‘Mr. L’ has submitted a brilliant 5-star review of The Lost Boys of Prometheus City in which he draws comparisons between my writing style and that of Hunter S. Thompson and Jack Kerouac. Indeed!

You can buy the book here.

And here’s the review:

There’s a big-ish piece on my novel The Lost Boys of Prometheus City in this week’s Big Issue in the North, talking about my primary influences for the work. Here’s a clipping:

The paperback version of my novel The Lost Boys of Prometheus City was released – rather unconventionally – on Christmas Day, but the ebook version has taken some time to see the light of day. I suppose it’s only fitting it should be available to purchase now, from another Hallmark Day – Valentine’s Day. Anyway, here’s your link-erooney to buy a copy of the Kindle edition of the book.
