God, Aliens, Death & Teapots (published)

It's very, very pleasing that my 100th post on this blog should celebrate another of my literary creations being published.
Here it is:
A mix of seven short stories (some really short, some quite a bit longer, all of them awesome!).
And what's more, I'm benevolently making this available to my adoring fans for absolutely nothing - zilch - nada - zero.
Yes, that's right, it's FREE!
But what's this? I hear some cries of bewilderment from the capitalist cheap-seats - has Andy lost his mind?
Fear not, dear friends, there is a cunningness about this plan, for secreted at the end of those seven stories (which are all f**king excellent by the way) is an excerpt from 'The Book That THEY…'
Sighs of relief and appreciative nods may commence.
Of course I haven't lost my marbles. 'Tis but a clever marketing ploy to try to bolster the sales of 'The Book That THEY…' so that it creeps over the 100 sold mark (a psychological barrier indeed).
So, to all those fantastic people out there in Readerland who have been so kind as to take interest in this blog - download your copy now - from here: Download free for your Kindle from Autharium
It should be available on Amazon soon and it's already up on Goodreads, expectantly awaiting a rush of glowing reviews.

God, Aliens, Death & Teapots

That's right, folks.
Today I finally got round to finishing the proof-reading and last-minute re-writes of the seven stories that have gone into the little anthology of short stories that is God, Aliens, Death & Teapots.

God, Aliens, Death & Teapots - out for comment.

Okay, so I am hoping to use this as a crude marketing tool for the much beefier 'The Book That THEY…' by surreptitiously sticking a short extract from my uber-fantastic (even if I do say so myself) debut novel, but who cares?
It also gets what I think are a set of really quite good little tales out there in the wider world, and that can't be a bad thing, can it?
Of course not.
I think I'll give it a week or so and then look to see if I can get the book published for real.

If anyone wants to download and let me know what they think (the link is above), all comments would be gratefully received!
