#atozchallenge: S is for Self promotion…

22 Apr


As I’m sure you are all aware, I’m an unassuming and modest sort of chap, not inclined to blowing my own trumpet or patting myself on the back, so it pains me to have to tell you this; today’s A-Z challenge is a shameless plug for my own work.

I know, shocking isn’t it.


I might have let it slip in the past that I have had some of my short stories published in a real, actual book, and now a second collection is available, called Short Stories and Tall Tales, it is being sold to raise money for the excellent British Heart Foundation and you can find it AT THIS LINK.


I’m also assured that the cookery book for which I wrote an introduction (I know, bizarre, right?) is out soon, subject to some final squabbling about the cover art, but until then, please support a worthy cause; buy the new anthology and/or share the link, thanks.

      Cheers Linda, you never know, I might even find out how many of the first one got sold, eventually.

    Have I already asked you, if you want to take part in “The Bee Talks With…” ? It’s my interview series on my other blog ( Sorry my phone doesn’t let me paste links in some blogs. Yours is one of them. Just have a look under ” Interviews to promote your creative work…”.

      Yes, that looks like something I could probably do. I e-mail you stuff, yes?

        Well, they’re not “my” books, exactly; I’m sure everyone else will appreciate it too.

        🙂 if any of the other authors want to take part they are welcome to it 🙂

        I wouldn’t know how to get in touch with them. I’ve suggested that Tracy applies though.

        I hope she wants to. That would be great. I’ll ask her too on her blog. Tomorrow though 🙂
