I’m getting ready for next Wednesday when I’m off to Greenwich for a reading from my novel, Stephen Dearsley’s Summer Of Love with some of my fellow Ward Wood Publishing writers, Peter Phillips, Sue Guiney, Joe Stein and Adele Ward (the Ward in Ward Wood).
I hope Peter Phillips will read from his latest poetry collection, Oscar And I, a funny and poignant collection telling the story of a very minor poet and his dog. Peter always makes me laugh – he can make me cry too. Joe’s latest novel, That Twisted Thing Called Truth is the third in a series of novels about the ex-boxer, Garron and his fight to survive in London’s criminal underworld.He has a new one coming out this Autumn and, who knows, he might even give us some clues about what’s next for the fascinating and much put-upon, Garron. In the meanwhile, I’m hoping to finish Sue’s new novel, Out Of The Ruins, the second in her absorbing series about the problems and joys in being a Western ex-pat in modern day Cambodia where tradition collides with science when two European doctors try to set up a clinic for the poor women of Siem Reap – I’m already a fan of Joe’s and Peter’s books and of Sue’s previous Cambodian novel, A Clash Of Innocents, now I’m hooked on Sue’s latest. I shall read from my novel Stephen Dearsley’s Summer Of Love and I might decide to give some of my new novel an airing – it’s called Blue Notes, Still Frames and it too is set in Brighton.
It is now available as a paperback or on Kindle (go to your region’s Amazon site for Kindle orders)
