It’s hard to believe that this day has come around again. The one day a year when we express our love for each other in the most crass manner possible. It is of course the most romantic day of the calendar year, Iraqi Communist Martyrs Day.
To mark a day of such importance and to demonstrate my love for each and every one of you I have decided to give you the literary equivalent of a flash of ankle at a nunnery. I know, I know. I am too kind. Are you ready? Take a seat, turn the lights down low and prepare to high-five an imaginary me.
I am aware that the cover image contains more sexy than legally permitted in sixty-nine countries on this planet, therefore, I shall give you a moment to compose yourself.
Are you ready? Let us continue. It is time for the blurb. For those of you that don’t know, a blurb is not a french swear word. Although it probably should be. A blurb is the description of the book which appears on the back cover. It usually contains words. Next to other words. Here it is, for the first time ever, ladies and gentleman, Mourning Morning.
What if time was broken? Would life continue as normal? Or would everything just stop?
For Norman Coleslaw, a young trainee journalist, a regular bicycle ride propels him into a week like nobody has ever experienced before. A week free from reality, and the constraints of time.
Norman’s search for truth leads him into the path of great danger, and eventually places him nipple-to-face with the most dangerous man Miranisha has ever known, General Alain de Wilderspin.
Mourning Morning, the second novel from Scott Andrews, takes you on a riotous romp through the kind of absurd landscape which can only occur in a post-modern dictatorship.
And the best news of all, please whatever you do, do NOT explode from happiness – ‘Mourning Morning’ will go on sale next weekend, via Amazon.
I know what you are thinking. That I have lost track of the true meaning of Iraqi Communist Martyrs Day. That I don’t really love you, that I just want you to buy my book. Of course I want you to buy my book, but not merely because of a commercial day created to sell themed merchandise and greetings cards to the brainless masses. I want you to buy the book because it is a good book. Much like my other one.
Some of you out there in cyberspace may have read my first novel ‘Existence Is Futile’. Recently I had a lovely surprise when the author of the Witch Hunter trilogy, K.S. Marsden, announced her top 20 books on her website ‘The Northern Witch’s Book Blog’. ‘Existence Is Futile’ is among them. You can find her top 20 list right here and read her review right here.
The fact is and I have to be honest here, I know what you are thinking. The dreaded second album. The sequel. The second series. You are worried that there is no way it can live up to expectations. Let me set you straight. I actually wrote ‘Mourning Morning’ two years before ‘Existence Is Futile’ which means that many of you have already read the dreaded second book. Mind-blowing isn’t? It can only mean one thing, ‘Mourning Morning’ must be even better. Right?
By the way, just in case you missed it, here is thirty-two seconds of cinematic porn.
Have a great weekend 🙂
