This Thanksgiving my second literary offering Bone Idol [bohn ahyd-l] becomes available in Paperback and on Amazon Kindle. In an effort to celebrate the word baby I'm hosting a giveaway on GoodReads; drop by and enter. It's completely free to do so, no strings.
I'm also in the midst of an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for a paperback launch in Belfast so if you've a few greenbacks going spare I'd love you long time...
SYNOPSISThe sophomore follow-up to Lost Angeles is the semi-biographical tale of author David Louden's alter-ego Doug Morgan as he struggles to connect with his father Jack, his mother Ruth and the working class ideology of "a real job".
From his early adventure filled days in Poleglass through to the alcohol induced haze of his early twenties Doug's life (much like the city) is one at conflict with itself. Bone Idol [bohn ahyd-l] is filled with humour, sex, guilt and the shameful dream of a boy wanting to create more than a family of haunted heirs.
