A treat for Easter week…

In the next few days I hope to post on my Facebook page the first of some readings from my books, starting with a short one appropriate for the Easter season.

While prepping for the readings from my books, I remembered that someone else got there first! So I suspect I won’t be ‘performing’ the first chapter of The Order of the White Boar‘ as I can’t possibly compete with Grandpa Joe.

A fellow member of the Promoting Yorkshire Authors group, Paul Smith has his own dedicated You Tube channel for Grandpa Joe’s Story Time, as well as being the driving force behind Wise Grey Owl, a book promotion site which showcases independently published authors in particular (especially apt during what is currently #IndieApril). Get yourself over there if you’re in need of new reading material! (And don’t forget The King’s Man is currently  on a Kindle offer at only 99p/99c…)

But if you enjoy being read to instead, why not try Grandpa Joe‘s Story Time? This link will take you direct to his reading of the first scene of The Order – told of course from Matthew Wansford’s point of view.

Are you sitting comfortably? Then he’ll begin…



Obviously this is not Grandpa Joe…
