Originally published on UK-based arts, music, fashion and subculture publication, Noctis Magazine, my novella, ‘Not Every Room Has a View’, was set to be stocked in a couple of independent bookshops. But, due to the dreaded Covid-19, these plans (like almost everything else at the moment) have been postponed.
But, it is currently available to rent at Newcastle under Lyme Library, Clayton Library, Kidsgrove Library, and Hanley’s City Central Library.
Right now, to help out in these uncertain times, I’m selling my book online, with all profits being donated to NHS Charities Together.
Physical copies are £4 and digital copies are £2 (in case you’d rather the postie doesn’t come to your home at the moment).
If you want one, fill out this form or pay with PayPal and I will arrange delivery ASAP. Thank you.
“Samuel Jacks floats through his days, venting a deep hatred for his hometown to no one but himself, looking after his sick Aunty Mags, smoking endless piles of roll-ups, and making token efforts to write a novel that he’s probably never going to start, let alone finish.
One day, his fleeting existence is flipped sideways when an old adolescent flame, Daisy, returns to the estate, digging up buried emotions and unlocking a barrage of unwanted baggage.
Upon reconnecting with Daisy, Sam’s world begins to unravel at an alarming rate, sending him on a journey that will force him to face his most putrid fears.
Part thriller, part social commentary, and part oddball misadventure, this epic tale of everything, and nothing, includes encounters with a sinister postman, ham factory blunders, burning yet mysterious romances, dank pubs, secret ales societies, unworldly radio DJs, a big old hazy climax, and the general obscenities of a confused, mind bent young soul—hold on tight.”
