Cracking follow up

Detective Strongoak book cover

It’s December! That means snow is in the air! Or on my blog at the very least.

Somehow I’ve completely failed to post all of the fantastic posts I’ve written over the last few weeks. Why? No idea. Just haven’t, leave me alone.

Ah well, maybe next year.

Last year around this time I posted a series of Christmas Crackers promoting random things. I was going to do the same again this year … but haven’t. (see above)

This one I will re-post though, because good things have happened:

Since (roughly) this time last year the almighty Terry Newman has had his ebook epublished by Harper Collins. Ooh! Good job that man! And he’d quite like you to buy it.

I’d like you to buy it too.

And read it.

And tell me if it’s any good because I still haven’t got over my dislike of ebooks despite never having read (or tried to read) one. I’m waiting for the paperback because that’s how I roll … over trees.

This is what it’s about:

Private eye Nicely Strongoak is your average detective-for-hire, if your average detective is a dwarf with a Napoleon complex. In a city filled with drug-taking gnomes, goblins packing heat and a serious case of missing-persons, Strongoak might just be what’s needed.

But things are about to turn sour. When on the trail of the vanished surfer, Perry Goodfellow, Nicely receives a sharp blow to the head, is burgled by goblins and awakes in a narcotic-induced haze on the floor of a steamwagon with an extremely deceased elf, who just happens to have Nicely’s axe wedged in his head.

Nicely must enter the murky world of government politics if he is going to crack his toughest case yet. He’ll have to find Perry, uncover who the dead elf is and leave no cobblestone unturned…

And this is where you can but it:

Go on, treat yourself. More importantly, treat Terry because he’s ever so nice.
