High Hopes For Kindle

by admin - 15:16 on 20 April 2015

Yet again, City Limits was well received by the crowd at Johnny Foxes – and that despite some fumbling fingers and Keith's memory shutting down after one verse of Sweet Home Alabama. I've tried to block it out for years, without success.

There now follows a two-month hiatus in the City Limits diary (although rehearsal has again been mooted) alleviated to a small extent by two Strays gigs, the first of them in The Room on Saturday. Fortunately, Jim returns from his oil rig today and a full-volume rehearsal is planned for Thursday. My new earplugs arrived just in time.

Until then my time is fully occupied with the garden, rescuing shrews from Willow, and – at long last – preparing one of my several unpublished novels for Kindle. The chosen tome is The Gift, which I wrote so long ago I've had to add YouTube, Twitter and mobile phones to the young hero's interests and make his friend's grandad a fan of Jimi Hendrix rather than his dad. Time flies.

Feedback from members of Black Isle Writers has been mostly positive and occasionally helpful, so the revised text is just about complete. The only delay on the road to publication, discovery, fame and fortune is caused by a non-reply from the owner of the picture I've incorporated into the book cover (not wishing to infringe his copyright, of course). I'd use one of mine but I've nothing suitable

Plan B (whatever that is) will be put into action if I don't hear back or I get a thumbs down.
