Watch out for flying motorbikes, Bermondsey Street, London.
I’m taking off – not actually on a flying motorbike Evil Knievel style – but on a plane to Scotland.
(Yes, yes, I know, I’m personally responsible for killing the planet. At least I’m getting the train back.)
So I’ll be even less responsive than the poor performance lately.
But it’ll give me the opportunity to – read my kindle. Assuming it works. The first one didn’t. I’ll be taking the replacement.
It’s about time I had one, given that I’ve been urging you to download the ebook I’ve written – but could only read myself on my computer. Cheeky, huh? But I’ve now rectified the situation.
The “gripping” ebook is called The Obituarist by the way. You can download it for pc, mac. kobo, nook, device, tablet, etc here from Smashwords, or for kindle here from Amazon.co.uk or here from Amazon.com.
As for me, having read The Point in print, I’ll be catching up with Wee Rockets and other work by Gerard Brennan and Dickens.
The trip will also give me the opportunity to distribute some of the NEW and exciting business cards for The Obituarist that arrived today. I also ordered a few postcards too. So if you know anyone who might be swayed by a postcard entreating them to download an ebook, let me know. You can email me their address if you don’t want to put it in a comment – paulwaters99 AT hotmail.com
Just think of their delighted surprise and happy faces when Continue reading →

Here are four new ways of doing things – how hide electricity pylons, how to pay for medicare, how to get building materials up to roof level and – most importantly – how to store beer.
1. Hiding those ugly pylons. Dominic Wilcox at the Variations on Normal blog has come up with an answer to two difficult questions at once – what to do with landfill? And how to beautify electricity pylons?
His cheaper alternative is to simply rename pylons, Mini Eiffel Towers and the public will adore them, maybe even pay to go up them Continue reading →
