Thank you for the feedback guys, it's greatly appreciated. If you are able plz fire a review on Amazon for me. 

To answer your question Tidy, all the characters are based on folk I worked with and real events. I have obviously changed names and also conflated some of their characteristics so that no one reads it and identifies themselves. They may recognise certain traits or events but think I've altered other factors around them so as not to make certain individuals instantly recognisable.

I've noticed that the 'fuck' count is down in the couple of chapters I've written in the follow up...... I'll need to up my game lol 😂

Anyway thanks again! 

Ps local press I did should be out today 👍

Nice haircut. Though I notice there are no ‘rear ‘ views 😁

Well done, good size article as Tiny Tim says.

Never too late, especially if you're already working on the next one.

This is a pal of mine, well he's someone I worked with for a few years and I liked him. http://iainbroome.com He wrote a novel and is big into social media and self promotion. I think his newsletter would be worth subscribing to.

I'm attaching some images below as I'm just building a website for my daughter - more of an online cv and portfolio - and I'm using wix.com to build it. It's really easy to use and they have loads of templates you just type your info into or upload a picture. I did a quick search for Book Promotion and a few templates came up I thought looked okay.

Click on the one you like and it takes you to the template where you just highlight and change the images and information.

Oh, this is interesting. I might have a bash at that this weekend with my I.T. consultant and marketing guru..... Mrs Slasher 😃

My old man worked there for 26 years until it shut down. He was Steel Making shift manager at the end after stints in the BOS plant. 

I have passed him on the link.

Me and better half heading to  Villamartin which is 30 miles south of Alicante airport. Love it there as it is virtually all expat pubs selling drink at ridiculous prices. Me and TA pals always go in May to enjoy 4 days of Sun and San Miguel to coincide with Scottish cup final.

Haha! Rossy was never a problem to me. It's hilarious how often that spat and his name still crop up on here 🤣

A wee update on proceedings. Sales heading towards 1300 and looking at getting some retailers to stock it next. Onwards we go and we'll see where it ends up 😃

I don't think Rossy really left because of the spat. That was more the straw that broke the camels back. He was at times a very funny read. I especially enjoyed his replies to Alan.

Totally agree, he wasn’t one for holding back. 😂 Which is good.

I would agree he could be very funny at times but an odious prick just as often. Saying that, I'd settle for debating with him on here right now as the 4 women in my house are currently subjecting me to Mamamia 2 at full volume 🙉
