Just to tell you about my exciting moment - the release of THE CHRONICLES OF DON’T BE SO RIDICULOUS VALLEY. It’s only out as a special signed first edition, and those who order before AUGUST 31st 2018 will get the signed, numbered limited edition one, - plus other goodies (!).
This is a book WHAT I WROTE a while back and which London Street Books Ltd are now publishing (in September) in association with Mango Books Ltd.
People ask me who it’s aimed at because it’s a bit “out there”. I always say it’s suitable for about 8 years upwards but could be read to younger ages, and also that it’s for proper grown ups too. In fact we came up with this strapline: “AN ADVENTURE STORY FOR CHILDISH GROWN-UPS AND GROWN UP CHILDREN”. So am I trying to be Terry Pratchet? - No because I'd never read any of his work before I wrote it, but now that I have, I can see some people have said it’s sort of a teeny bit like that, except completely different and nowhere near as good. It would appeal to anyone with an eccentric sense of humour. It’s a bit Pythonesque, a bit faux-Tolkien (but also not as good!) . Forgive my modesty. I know it doesn’t really suit me. Must try harder. Anyway you can read more about the book and order your signed first edition copy at www.londonstreetbooks.com so I’ll leave it at that. If you are into slugs and fairies you’ve come to the right place!
Lots of Love
Here is ERGO - a slug of medium size, who is the hero of the book. Just below him meet General James Moundrot BCCC., CP, (Bronze Cha Cha Cha., Cycling Proficiency) - leader of the Pigfrog nation. He’s not a Good Egg. File under V for ViIlain. Hope you enjoy it!
