Double Doug Done Dirt Cheap!

Save 72% on the RRP of Downward Facing Doug this weekend as Venice Books slashes the Kindle price from $3.50 to just 99c!  There are fewer things you can buy for cheaper, yes, yes, you could buy yourself not just one, not just two, but three tacos for the same price but they’d probably give you the shits wicked fierce.

Pretty good, right?!  No?  Ok, well let’s check it out.  This 48-hour offer will not only provide you with a copy of Lost Angeles, retailing on Kindle for $1.99 but my NEW roman á clef novel Bone Idol [bohn ahyd-l], $2.99, saving you an amazing $3.98 (or 12 tacos) but when you buy Downward Facing Doug you get even more free stuff.

Downward Facing Doug contains three free short stories, two of which are not available anywhere else.  They are part of a work in progress titled Short Stories That All Definitely Happened.  They are: Death RRP $19.99 [available here], A Short Story For Creationists and The Greatest Cock That Ever Lived.  Fans of books printed on murdered trees can also pick up Downward Facing Doug for $11.69, a discount of $1.30 off its RRP.

Lost Angeles, Dec 1 2012
Full time whiskey enthusiast Doug Morgan is on a downward spiral.  Over the past two years the Irish man has played witness to the slow and steady decay of his life and he’s finally called time.  Haunted by an unacknowledged pain Doug swaps the white collar nine to five of Belfast for one last charge into oblivion in the City of Angels.  A scotch-soaked stranger in a strange land Doug befriends a series of like minded and self destructive vagabonds who, like him, are aiming for chaos.

In a city that see thousands of people per year come to be discovered why has one man come to get lost?

Bone Idol [bohn ahyd-l], Nov 28 2013
The 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.
