This year I am taking part in Movember again to raise awareness and, hopefully, some money for prostate cancer. This year Royal Mail have adopted prostate cancer as their charity and will be matching any of the money I raise through November. You can see me here on Royal Mail TV, who filmed a podcast which explains why raising awareness of prostate cancer is so important to me. You have to fast forward to 2:56:

I have decided as part of my fund raising I am going to donate 50% of the profit from purchases of my book E-Maled  during the 30 days of November to the Movember charity. As Royal Mail have agreed to match my donation, £1.00 of every sale of the book this month will go directly to the charity.

If you don't want to buy a copy of my book but would like to donate you can visit my Mo Space here.

My book was published last week and can be found here. To be honest I'm not good with the self-promotion thing so am unlikely to sell many copies. Nevertheless, below is a brief description of the book and if you read it you may just want to give it a go.

Jimmy Gallagher, is a man who has not had a straightforward life. His wife gone, his career as a successful banker in tatters, and a subsequent spell as a HGV driver falling to pieces before he finds his perfect job.

Now his life is back on track but something is missing, a lady, and this is where his troubles really begin to take shape. Jimmy, being a pragmatic guy frequents a dating site and we join him as he is setting off to meet a friend he makes there, Hannah, and she is definitely not simple. For a start she is married, lives in the States and has a homicidal maniac for a husband. Worse, Jimmy has never flown and in his life nothing is ever as easy as you would expect.

Even in the darkest parts of Jimmy's tale you, hopefully, find yourself laughing aloud, as he follows a path he is fully aware will lead him to further distress without really understanding why he is doing so.

So is this a thriller? No, not in the traditional sense.

Is it a comedy? No, it's not that either.

I like to think E-MALED takes a fresh approach to a genre that at times can be quite tired, Jimmy Gallagher is an anti-hero that sometimes you may want to slap but eventually grow to love.

PS if you are in the USA you can find it here.

Reviewing the reviewer?

I've noticed recently that a lot of people post negative book reviews online. Some of these aren't just a comment on the book hidden by the anonymity of the Internet but also a verbal attack on the author. I'm really not sure why they do this but it did get me thinking about if they ever reviewed each others reviews. It might go something like...


Today I read Dilligaf666's review of My Little Pony the Rainbow Years, a vanity published ebook by 9 year old Abigail Spencer-Brown. I'd not read any of Dilligaf666's reviews before but they have a lot of " thumb down" this is not helpful comments so I thought I'd give them a go.

I WISH I hadn't!!!

It started off well enough with a vitriolic bombardment of the 9 year old's double barrelled name. Unfortunately after that the review went downhill. The spelling was atrocious! Dilligaf666 actually spelled count wrong on two separate occasions and don't get me started on the punctuation. In the second sentence in the thirty third paragraph they used a semicolon instead of a coma. There was also a DISTINCT lack of words in underlined bold capitals and a scant amount of exclamation marks!!! How thick is this person? They will give us reviewers a bad name!!!

After I read this review I came away feeling empty. I felt no real hate for the book or Abigail Double-Bloody-Barrelled and now I may even read the damn book. As for Dilligaf666 I will NEVER ever read one of their reviews again!!! I implore you not to either. If you do you know I will hunt you down and kill you in your sleep!!!
