Just added some new photos to the Facebook pages for the three books.

Here they are on Facebook:

The Plutocrat

I’m now set up on!

My profile is here.

The videos are there, too. And there are PDF previews that people can read online or download. They contain the first 90-100 pages of each book.

Goodreads lets you give away free paperbacks to readers who register their interest, which is a very nice feature. I’ll be doing that quite soon.

Spike and Monty are friends


It’s a few months since we adopted Spike (on the right) and Monty. And it looks like they’re good friends now…

I’ve just done the Smashwords author interview thing. Quite fun. I’ll probably add to it later.

New Book Trailer Videos

There are now three book trailer videos!

There’s a new one for ‘The Populist’, which features some noteworthy London landmarks, and that famous old movie cliché, the spinning newspaper.

It’s on YouTube, and also the video page of the main web site, where the complete YouTube playlist is available.

Then there’s a video for ‘The Régime Change Man’, in which you can see some very beautiful Namibian landscapes.  It’s on YouTube and the video page.

Video Trailer for The Plutocrat

There’s now a short video trailer for The Plutocrat.

It’s one minute and thirty-six seconds long, and it features some of the book’s Madagascan locations.

It’s on the video page of the web site, and it’s on YouTube, here.

Yes, and there are two really cute lemurs in it…

Spike and Monty

Our two cats are Spike-and-Monty-on-bedSpike and Monty.

They’re  rescue cats from Cats Protection in Archway,  North London. They both have FIV.

Spike’s the one on the right. He’s about eighteen months old, and he’s very lively and athletic. His purr is very quiet, and he doesn’t miaow much, but he makes some very sweet chirruping noises. I named my publishing operation – Black Spike Books – after him!

Monty is much older; we’re not sure of his age. The vet thinks he’s at least nine. He used to be a street cat, and he looks a bit bashed-up. He’s extremely affectionate and has a very loud purr. But he loves people-food, especially milk and bread, which he’s not allowed to have. This morning he broke into our food recycling bin…
