It’s been a while since I have posted an update on my literary babies and the odd projects that I am somehow involved in so I thought I should share some news.
On Thursday the 26th of November, to commemorate my entry into middle-life misery, Amazon will be giving away the kindle version of ‘Mourning Morning’ absolutely free. That’s right, you can read my book without the fear of even a penny going to me. So do it, and enjoy the fact that I am a starving, struggling, writer that lives under a bridge with a hobo called Johnny Wanxard.
To further commemorate another year survived, the price of the paperback edition of ‘Mourning Morning’ has been slashed harder than Freddy Kruger’s underwear that time he had public lice. You can order it by clicking here.
Nook readers can now get ‘Mia’ for free, directly from the Barnes and Noble store. You can find it right here.
For those of you in Poland. On Saturday the 28th of November you can go and see my new band play their first live concert at the Europejskie Targi Muzyczne in Warsaw. You, or should I say, Yu, can find all the details right here.
I rarely use this blog as a platform to ask for help, however, for once I can only to try to use it for the power of good. In my hometown of Harlow, something terrible is happening. The single live music venue is being closed down and it is awful news. ‘The Square’ in Harlow, was the first place that ever gave a stage to an original song by me. The song in question was Wet Dream performed by the magnificent Dwarf Antidote. Since then a billion miles have passed, I have swapped writing angry teenage punk for uplifting Polish electro and the very venue that offered a forum for many others like me is closing down and it utterly depresses me. ‘The Square’, for most of that have inhabited the place at some point in our lives, is a sanctuary, a safe place away from alcohol-fuelled testosterone inspired pissing competitions found in nightclubs in so many towns. It has always been a place where you could be yourself, no matter how ridiculous that self is, and that for one is worth celebrating. Now we have a chance to say thank you. ‘The Square’ is in the running to be voted ‘Britain’s Best Small Venue’ by NME magazine. Anybody can vote, regardless of location, and you can do so by clicking here. Go on, it will only take a minute and it may well save a special place for so many people.
And if my pleas have fallen off death ears, make yourself a coffee, or pour a beer, or whatever it is you people do and watch this video which explains precisely why you should #SaveTheSquare
