I’m delighted to let you know that I have now published my short story, ‘Confessions of an Ageing Tennis Player’ on Amazon. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it! Two readers have already expressed their 5* appreciations:
“I am at the ageing tennis player age and this book hits the nail on the head with an insight and humour that made me laugh out loud. Great observation, no holds barred honesty through the arena of tennis that explores between our imagination and the actuality.”
“This is a riotous, rolling, rollicking read in the picaresque tradition. Eat your hearts out Henry Fielding and Herman Melville. As the hero hurtles through his ruthless pursuit of fame and glory, you too will probably receive an upgrade as you are laughing so much in your plane or train seat. Witty ( and wise) this is a cracking read. First in a series.”
So that’s become a great start to the summer!
Not only that… but my long standing blog, The Business Allotment, has finally made it out into the sunlight in book form too. If you prefer iBooks, you can read that here, or if you prefer a paperback or Kindle version, you can read that here.
In the meantime, my blog continues to give me an opportunity to bang on about something or another.
‘Banging on about…‘ is a contemporary alternative to being a Brother of the Free Spirit, Digger, Early Quaker, Primitive Methodist, Ranter or just a General Pain in the A***, common in the days of the English Commonwealth between 1649 and 1660. Whether it’s ranting, digging or just general wild enthusing – this is the site for you.
Alternatively, if you want to read something a bit more sobering from me, you can always leap over to this site’s sister blog here.
Happy reading: I hope you get fired up to bang on about something, somewhere, somehow yourself and continue the glorious English tradition of shouting your mouth off at the earliest available opportunity!
