I started writing it in 2008, just for fun. Two years later I sent it to dozens of literary agents and then filed away all my rejection letters and forgot about it.
But in 2014, with self-publishing and e-books transforming the world of publishing from top to bottom, it was time to dust it down, revise the text and release it onto an unsuspecting world! Huge thanks to everyone here who helped me choose a pen-name and a cover image for the book.
If you enjoy my blog, I hope you’ll enjoy my book. Don’t worry if you don’t know anything about yoga – I’m really just using yoga as a metaphor. The story is a dark philosophical comedy about Dave, a rational person who has the misfortune of living in an irrational universe. Dave has ‘issues’ and is sent to yoga classes by his wife, the beautiful but unsympathetic Marlene. But is yoga the solution, or just part of the problem? Soon his ordered existence is invaded by angels, demons, gods, goddesses, witches and worse. Can anti-hero Dave make sense of his world, save his marriage, learn to do yoga without falling over, and discover the secret of happiness before everything goes too far?
I have priced the Kindle version at the bottom end of the scale that Amazon permits. If it sells I will raise the price, so I advise you to buy it immediately! Trust me, I totally have your best interests at heart. It should also be available at Kobo from tomorrow, and as a paperback in a week or two, but the paperback version will be more expensive (paper costs money).
Just one warning – like my blog, the book isn’t going to be to everyone’s taste. But if you’re here and you’re reading this, then hopefully you will enjoy it.
One final plea – if you do read it, please take a moment to leave a review at Amazon or Goodreads. Even if you hate it.
