Launch day! Book three - Sins of the Fathers - officially launched today although launch events will be in Edinburgh on 9th Nov and in Orkney on 23rd Nov. So you can buy online but the local bookshop are holding back till after the launch. Loads of promotional events lined up including a blog tour, interviews, a couple of pieces I've written specially for various outlets and of course online and print reviews. The initial word is very positive with One Man in the Middle blog giving it 9.8 start out of 10. (10 each for the writing and story!)
Latest review just in: Scots Magazine (readership 259,000) says "The second, just-as-good-as-the-first", novel involving pastor David Hidalgo. Thanks guys.
Readings at the Orkney Free Festival Fringe on Saturday 23rd March - various venues and times. Les will read a bit of All that Glitters and a new unpublished short story "The Benefits of Easy Parking".
STOP PRESS - the Christmas giveaway short story "David Hidalgo and the Badvent Calendar" is now a year round giveaway. Send Les your email address and if you don't mind being added to the DH mailing list a copy of the 15,000 word PDF story will wing its way to you.
Dec. 15th Signing and selling - Grace church, stromness (previously the John St. Hall) - 12 noon - 3pm
DEC. 2018: The big DH Christmas giveaway. Something to keep you going between books - a free Christmas themed short story for ANYONE who purchases ANYTHING during December.
You can buy from the website at https://www.worldofdavidhidalgo.com if you need it posted, OR just send me a message or stop me in the street if you're local to Orkney OR buy from Lion Hudson at http://www.lionhudson.com. Other outlets don't count. David Hidalgo and the Badvent Calendar is a 15,000 word story which sees David harassed by a nasty Christmas themed email scam. But instead of just trying to ignore it and forget about it, he decides to find out who's behind it and face them up with the distress they are causing. This involves a trip to Madrid, tracking down a cyber criminal and maybe rescuing two birds with one stone! Get in touch now to get your copy in PDF or ePub format (available as soon as Lion have finished proofing it!) And Happy Christmas from David, Gillian and me.
Nov, 2018: Really nice review of All that Glitters from Living Orkney magazine.
