AddNib 77

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

Yer right

But power profits say

It will be awright oan the night.

But then they dinnae half talk some shite!!!

My Books 2

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!

My Books

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.

A Conversation Piece

‘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!’

My Dearest Readers

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.
