Words on words

hqdefaultI know, I know, I said I wouldn’t be back on here for a few days and you all thought you were safe. But I had to pop in to mention that Dee Arr’s live review of ‘Gravy Train’ is now available as a standalone piece on YouTube. So if you didn’t get to see the original broadcast, or didn’t have time to listen to the whole show, then now’s your chance. All you need to do is follow this link to Eclectic Storm radio and the snippet involving my book is right there for you.

It’s great fun and should give you a flavour of the book in no more than a couple of minutes. And watch out for the deliberately mischievous false start and the blindfold.

Now I’m disappearing again, probably until after the New Year. So have a good one and I’ll see you all in 2019!

The most dangerous review on the internet

eclecticstormI woke to some unexpected but lovely news this morning, which is that ‘Gravy Train’ has been featured in a book review… on radio!

Eclectic Storm Radio, a YouTube based station which showcases new indie music alongside amusing tales and banter, also includes a review slot called Words on Words. Described (not altogether seriously!) as “the most dangerous book review on the internet”, it’s done in a maximum of 60 seconds, live and uncut, and in this particular case, blindfold!

Even in such a short time, and without his notes, co-host Dee Arr has the dizzying plot and whirl of characters down to a “T”, and says some lovely things about the book too.

Want to listen? Head over to Eclectic Storm Radio and check it out. It’s free, the music’s good and it’s a lot of fun, too.
