Amazon FREE eBook giveaway 21st and 22nd August.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I'm a lifelong fisherman (74 yrs old) and also a writer. I published an eBook, earlier this year called 'SOMETHING FISHY', The book is getting really great reviews and Amazon are running a promotion on it this week. So, for two days only, you will be able to download it for FREE, on 21st and 22nd August. The Amazon book description is:

 

"This is an hilarious comedy, 'Something Fishy' tells the story of five men who become kids again when they embark on a weekend fishing trip to the west coast of Ireland. There is lots of fishing done, but there are plots and counter plots during the trip. Two of the men lose their false teeth, but one of them gets his back again. Of the five men only four go fishing, while the fifth man is otherwise engaged with his 'bit on the side', Big Mary, (with life changing consequences for him!)


The events that occur on the fishing trip create tensions between their different personalities. The strong bonds of old friendships are tested and, as in life, there are winners and losers. One of the men doesn’t make it to Ireland, he bites off a bit more than he can chew, with Big Mary, and, for him, life will never be the same!"

 

If you like laughing, larger than life characters, drinking Guinness, more laughing, sex and lewd humour then you will certainly enjoy reading this book. Anyone who has been away for a 'fishing weekend' with the lads will probably identify one or two of the characters in the book, with people from their own past experience.

Tight lines.

Looking at the opening chapter, it crossed my mind that it might be eligible for the award won by such luminaries of literature as Melvyn Bragg and Tom Wolfe. But perhaps a fishing novel would be unlikely to come to the judges attention.
