Bobby Shafter is my first book to be published in the traditional way – printed on paper and with an actual as opposed to a virtual cover. Here’s a photo of me spruiking it at the launch, held on 31 August 2018 at the Elephant British Pub in Adelaide.
Set in Yorkshire in the 1950s, it’s a story about a man and a woman, social class, role-playing, human nature, human frailty and human ingenuity, told with a bit of humour and enough sex and violence to make it believable.
If you remember the 1950s, Bobby Shafter will be a walk down Memory Lane. If you missed them it will be a window on a world of wonders. After all, the 1950s were a golden age.
After a period of glory as a “published author” I realised that I was also an “un-read author”. So I bought the publishing rights back from Elephant House Press and have self-published it as an e-book, priced at US$2.99. Click here to buy it at Smashwords.
The sequel, Farley’s Bend, will be e-published very soon.
