Noo dinnae panic,
A huvnae died an gaun tae Heaven
As if ye wid says you
Weel nae luck it’s true
He’s back, yer intrepid Gumshoe.
Nae sign o Rich eh though;
Micht hae taen a turn fir the worst?
Or maybe no –
Anywie o Rich eh O
Mind how ye go, it’s cauld oot there
There snaw an ice upon the stair;
The yin that goes doon, as weel as up
The yin that spills the bubbly,
Afore ye can “lovely jubbly.”
Thir’s folk o every age,
Where life is no a stage –
Whae are cauld an hungry
An cannae meet thir bills
Nae matter how they try
But watch oot Richy O
Fir in his grave auld AddNib disnae lie,
Like Zoro strikes his mark in ink
An micht just guide us fae this stink
Nae promise mind o being in the pink
But maybe jist scratch thir armour
Enough tae mak a chink.
AddNib’s Weather Warning
If ye, like me, are gettin auld
Stay in, fir ootside’s awfie cauld
So is in says you
But power profits say
It will be awright oan the night.
But then they dinnae half talk some shite!!!
Dear Readers, please accept my apologies regarding the availability of my books but my account problem with Amazon is as yet unresolved.
I have been receiving many enquiries as to where my books are available to purchase but unfortunately they are not yet for sale until my publishing problem is resolved.
The good news is that this hiccup has not in any way stemmed the flow of my writing and I am busy writing the follow up to my last novel and have more ideas in the pipeline, including a possible return to JP Associates.
I can only hope that your patience will be rewarded by the coming novels.
Wishing you all a great Christmas and a fab New Year!
Dear Readers, apologies to those who have tried to find my books on Amazon or KDP in the last days and have not been able to find them.
My publishing account is now closed with this company and I am in the process of finding a new platform for my work.
I hope that in the next while you will once again find my work online.
Apologies once more for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Ever find yourself wondering which way to turn? Why not wrap up warm, find your self a nice bench, sit quietly and look into the far distance – you may be pleasantly surprised.
As Winter approaches, pushing roughly at the newly fallen leaves of Autumn we’ll remember scenes so vivid on the eye that breathtaking doesn’t come close. Go on Winter, bring it on!😎
The Weaver is getting some good feedback guys. If you happen upon it and fancy a discussion about the book you can do so by email on this site. Alan
‘Correct me if I’m wrong Tod, but if the Chancellor removes the cap on bankers’ bonuses then banks put interest rates up, does that mean that bankers can then take bigger bonuses?’
‘I’m afraid it does Bob.’ Tod could feel the same old anger grip at his neck. He turned so his friend couldn’t see him grit his teeth. ‘I’m afraid it does Bob.’
‘And if that same Chancellor lowers taxes for the top 1% does that mean they’ll pay less tax on those bonuses?’
‘Bob, can we change the subject, please! I’m on remission remember!’
That’s the paperback version for sale on Amazon bookshelves. I do hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Feedback and email discussions welcome.
This morning, the 17th of September and on a glorious sunny day here in Leith, I have published The Damask Weaver on Amazon, in both Kindle and Paperback versions.
Now it may take up to two days for the Kindle version to appear for sale and up to three days for the paperback. I’ll let you know if and when I see it for sale, but then you might see it first.
Thank you again for biding your time with me. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
