Free Bone! [bohn]

This weekend Bone Idol [bohn ahyd-l] is free on Amazon Kindle.  Grab a copy while you can or face the weighty price of $0.99 in the future!  You have been warned.

Synopsis [sɪˈnɒpsɪs]
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.
