Eastbourne Book Festival 2015

I'm looking forward to the 19th and 20th of September 2015 because it's the Eastbourne Book Festival. It will be held in the Underground Theatre beneath the Eastbourne library, just across from the Eastbourne train station.

I will be there selling copies of my books and giving readings from both of my novels.

Saturday I will be reading from The Penitent Heart, One man's journey from despair to hope. 

Sunday I will be reading from my new novel, Buchanan and the case of the bodies in the Marina,

Step by Step Guitar Making
This is my book on how to make an acoustic guitar. I'll have signed copies, complete with full sized plans available and will be happy to discuss what it takes to make a guitar.



Along with selling my books, I'll be happy to discuss what's involved in getting your own book into print and Ebook and onto the Amazon worldwide sales platform. It's a lot easier than you can imagine, and it doesn't cost you anything. No stock to buy, just print on demand and pocket the royalties.

The Penitent  Heart, one man's journey from despair to Hope.
It is the story of Bill, a hapless househusband, who while being under the influence of alcohol causes a road traffic accident, and the subsequent death of the other driver. Overloaded with stress and guilt, Bill suffers a debilitating emotional breakdown. Bill abandons his wife, Ruth, and her three young daughters by her first marriage, to become a cook on a charter yacht bound for the Amazon. Bill finds himself sucked into a tale of intrigue, he may have run away from his wife, his family, and his responsibilities, but no matter how hard he tries, he can’t run away from the shadowy spectre of his past. He realizes that one day, sooner than later, he will have to decide whether to keep on running or stop and face the music.

Ever wondered how to go about repairing or binding a book. I did till I decided to give it a try. Now I bind all my own books and you can to with simple tools and materials. Come along to the book fair and ask me how I go about it.


Buchanan and The Case of the Bodies in the Marina.

Glasgow cop, DCI Jack Buchanan is in Eastbourne, seconded to Sussex CID. His task is to investigate the death of an unidentified young woman found floating in the Marina and also the death of a Sussex Detective Sergeant, drowned in the harbour while still seat belted in his car.

When he walked the beat in the Gorbals as a young PC, Jack’s idea of street justice was to take the miscreant down a dark alley, thump some sense into them, and send them on their way.



Now, like a fish out of water, and in genteel surroundings, would Buchanan be in time to catch the killer before they kill again?

Both my novels are available in Kindle and print format from Amazon and in paperback. Also in paperback and hardback direct from me at the show, see you there.
