funny ebooks with pathos

How to make a fashion accessory out of a tea cosy, and other stories


With my latest novel, Major BS and the Illegal Immigrants out of my head and off exploring a life of its own, it’s time for a change of pace for me. I’m editing a collection of my funny columns that have appeared in various newspapers and on this site over several years — offering earth-shattering advice on things like how to make a fashion accessory out of a tea cosy and revealing how hundreds of rats made my stay on a tropical island so memorable.

I’m not sure of the timeframe on this collection. My aim is to have it on 
Amazon as an ebook by the end of October. This is because I plan to immerse myself in NaNoWriMo in November, and I won’t want any distractions then. My goal will be to write 50,000 words in the month, which will become the first draft for another novel.
