I wrote a book about being in a covers band

Recommended Posts

Good luck with the sequel. I'm off to Amazon to get Mrs Mep to buy Weekend Rockstars for me.

Apologies for the spammy post, and not being around much - day job is stupid busy at the moment, and now I've got a deadline for a novel I haven't actually quite finished yet....

Will be back to normal soon

I'll be getting my order in for the follow up. 1st one was a great read and the 2nd sounds like its gonna be just as much fun.

Like @Raymondo i've bought all 3 books and thoroughly enjoyed them all so i won't be disappointed with another. Most books i've ever read from any one author except my wife's Terry Pratchet stuff that i occasionally read on holiday mainly because they are there.

My point is you need to write more books so i have yours lying around on holidays. Aim for same number as Terry P and i'll be happy. :laugh1:

That's high praise indeed and a lot of work to do

Terry is something very special (here's the thing I wrote about him when he died, in case you missed it)

Also thanks for you reviews on amazon, very helpful indeed. :)

Read it, and felt the need to comment, just annoyed I missed it at the time :(

Made a start on Weekend Rockstars last night very enjoyable and well written, looking forward to reading my way through the others. I'd been looking for ward to something other than the usual stuff I read, this is a very welcome change. Keep em coming.

And I felt the need to assume it was Dave who posted and replied to the comment foolishly.

Bum.

Just finished Weekend Rockstars. Really enjoyed it. I'll be getting some Fat Labrador soon. Got the Bovey Jovey name as it's not far from where I live. All the band names are good. Can't have been easy making them up when just choosing 1 for a band is always difficult. I was trying to work out which town it could have been or inspired by and shortlisted Exmouth,  Teignmouth or Barnstable?

A lot of those band names are bands I've been in over the years and the rest are ones I've been trying to get used by bands who don't like my band names.

Barnstaple is in there, yeah, but the actual winner is Bideford - where I spent my formative years. Locals will recognise all the pubs - as long as they're old enough to remember them before they closed.

I don't mind one bit if you then immediately unsubscribe, and it's got that preview chapter in the back of it as well

The hard copy will be available at exactly the same time as the ebook, it's just Amazon don't allow pre-orders on hard copy due to people setting the whole thing up, then forgetting all about it.

It's a lot less hassle for them if many people complain about a blank ebook than having sent out 100s of blank sheets of paper.

Fret ye not chaps, you'll be able to order it for as cheap as I can make it (in the first week at least) as of Valentines Day - which I think is a fortnight today. In all honesty, it'll probably be a few days earlier as Amazon have stung me before by keeping the paperback in review for 72 hours when it's usually pretty instant, and I would like people to be able to order it on the day Ive been advertising everywhere for the last few months.

 

(I didn't think I'd be in to the kindle thing either, until my wife bought me one a few years ago and the 4 hour train journey to London and back was so much easier to get through, honestly, try it.)
