Topic: Speedbomb

Third novel in my Leeds 6 trilogy sees the return of Hamed and the Yardies, some serial killing and a spot of global politics thrown in for good measure. Thanks again to Mick McCann and his Armley Press. Here's a YouTube promo:

Re: Speedbomb

Read it and can recommend.  Best of the trilogy for me.

An underworld fairy tale or aesop fable, the moral being "don't fuck with Hamed!"

Re: Speedbomb

Be saving that for my hols. Loved the first two.

Was football Terry based on Little Terry in the previous books?

Re: Speedbomb

In the first, there were Welsh Terry and Football Terry. One of 'em crops up in I think the third, but I'm fucked if I can remember which right now.

Keep up the good work mate. Loved all the stuff round the Royalie, used to hang about there in my 20's getting into bother. Not as deep in as your characters like.

Er obviously Dj, John's a proper fucking writer, I'm just a talentless twat with an over-ripe ego and a keyboard.

And I can, of course, give you a full refund for HLCTW.

Re: Speedbomb

Do you refund on lost ones? I had 96, but they've gone.

No but if you want to get some replacements, I can give you a full 10p off each copy for 96.

Launch Party

We're a bit late but we're having a bash on the 29th of March at LS6 Bar on Hyde Park Corner.

If anyone has already bought it but want it signing or just fancy a few beers, come along, everyone welcome. I'm sure there'll be an after launch as well.

Re: Speedbomb

Right, launch party has been shifted to 19th of April same place (LS6 Bar - H P Corner, 7.30 pm) so the above post will disappear in a couple of days.

Soz, we discovered we were up against a gig the same night and couldn't afford a turf war.....it's family you understand. People we love. Dint want it getting messy.

I'd like to apologise to those of you who've already made arrangements and hope you can re-jig.

Last thing, if anyone who's read it fancies a one line review on amazon - sorry to ask but it helps - feel free but certainly no pressure, I hate flogging wink

Chin him Mick.

He’s walked back to his youth and hymned the young man he was with knowing affection, despite the rain of bitter knowledge manhood has inevitably brought him.
