Let’s Go Kobo

Checking out the availability of these, my latest, releases…

…I discovered Indigo, selling Kobo versions. So, if you own a Kobo Reader, you now know where to go. But, I feel certain, Indigo needn’t be your only port of call. If needs be, go explore the Internet.

Go Spook the Nook

It has been my experience that Nook users tend to buy my serious work – and I thank them for that. But I’d also like to remind them that I write silly stuff too. For example, these two e-books…

..now appear on the listings at Barnes & Noble. Why not give your funny bone a treat and take a look!

The Return of ‘The Return of the Prodigal Earplug Vol 2’

With significant new Earplug Adventures material still a wistful glint in my author-ish eye, I thought I’d bring you another dose of my earlier stuff. It follows on directly (nay-seamlessly) from the previous post. Hope you don’t mind…

And this is how the e-book ‘cover‘ looks…

It is available at most e-book sellers, all over the place. What good taste they must all have.

 

Junior Earplug Adventures: The Grand Tour (part 64)

Magnuss considered it a fact that when he spoke he spoke for all present and many life-forms scattered across the Galaxy…

“Well first I’d like fiscal security for the Museum of Future Technology until the end of time itself.” He said.

“You got it.” The Supreme Being replied cheerfully.

“I’d also like those slimy Air Heads kicked off Scroton and it’s people freed from subjugation.”

Again the Supreme Being didn’t hesitate…

“There you go.” He said. “They’re a bit bemused; but they’re free.”

Magnuss wasn’t finished: “I’d like the Earplugs who evolved here back where they belong. This is their planet after all.”

For a moment the Supreme Being baulked; but a look from Magnuss made him cave in: “Oh alright. Anything else?”

“Yep.” Magnuss cheered up. “It’s been a long voyage. I’d rather like it if the Chi-Z-Sox and all aboard her were transported back to Earth in no time at all.”

The Supreme Being was clearly relieved by this last demand. “You got it, baby!” He laughed. And in the next moment…

…everyone was back from whence they started the Grand Tour.

“Strike up the band.” Magnuss shouted.

Naturally the museum’s resident soul group, the Trumptations, were close at hand…

“Let’s party!” Magnuss bellowed. “Huh – get down!”

And so they did…

Mandy, Candy, Vic, and Bob even put on a spectacular celebratory farting show…

But there were a few dissenters. Those who couldn’t quite believe their luck…

Earplugs who lived in perpetual fear that good times never last. And they had good reason to feel this way. Because, far out in the depths of space, evil eyes kept watch…

“I’ll be back.” The Wonky Supreme Being promised a disinterested cosmos. “And next time I’ll be wearing a reinforced jock strap!”

The End (until next time)

‘Return of the Prodigal Earplug’…er…Returns (after a fashion)

Back in 2016 I brought to the world a wondrous tale of earplug derring-do. It was titled Return of the Prodigal Earplug Volume 2. Unsurprisingly it was a Magnuss vehicle that also featured his side-kick and girlfriend, Hair-Trigger Provost. Very nice it was too. But once it was removed from this blog (to make room for later tales), that, as they say, was that. It was technically impossible for it to re-appear. Then I discovered a little tool buried in my Microsoft Windows 7. It’s called Snipping Tool, and it allows a stupid author to go back to his Word edition of a Junior Earplug Adventure; make the wording larger; then ‘snip’ out pages in JPEG form. So, the following pages of RotPEv2 are actually photographs. Photographs taken of a book, but without using a camera. Don’t you just love tech? Anyway, check out the first ten pages. Older readers might recognise it. Newbies – this is how earlier stories looked…

That’s right: just like they look these days.

P.S If you would care to see excerpts from earlier tales (or not, possibly), leave a comment in the comment box. R.S.V.P

Launched…into Cyber Space!

Yes, even before the last excerpt appears on-line, The Grand Tour makes it into e-book-land. These two devilishly stylish volumes are now available at Lulu.com – prior to general release everywhere else. Go take a look, if only to satisfy your curiosity.

I’d like to think that the story was just too big for a single volume; but, to tell the truth, all those photos use up an awful lot of megabytes. The e-book file would have taken an eternity to download. So, yeah, like I said: the story was just too big for a single volume!
