Book Giveaway for St. David's Day

Happy St. David's Day Internet!  To celebrate my namesake day (that's a real thing right?) I'm giving away my roman á clef novel Bone Idol [bohn ahyd-l] for forty-eight hours.  The Kindle edition of Bone Idol [bohn ahyd-l] also includes the short story Talking to Myself plus an extract a Noir, set in Belfast, which is my first real venture into genre fiction.

Bone Idol [bohn ahyd-l]
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.
