I did a Giveaway promotion last weekend for my first Historical Fiction. The Quarry Bank Runaways was then listed as #1 USA and #2 UK on Amazon European Historical Fiction downloads! 😁 So I hope may see a positive response in future sales? Click on the screenshot for links to book page.
ANTS IN SPACE
OK, so it took a long while to come back with news about my kids sci-fi book! But a lot of "life" got in the way in between then and now. After a few changes and edits etc the finished product is FABULOUS!
The link to Amazon is above where there is a paperback and an ebook, aimed at children 8 to 10 who want an adventure in space - on another planet and with some very funny moments along the way. Oh, yes, and they have to be as small as ants and speak an alien language in a squeaky little voice! (So do the adults who want to read it with them!)
See you on ANTANESTA!

False News Flash! (A Blast from the Past)
This is a re-arrangement of an amusing false news flash that circulated around various school teacher common rooms about 20 years ago:
A public school teacher was arrested today at John F. Kennedy International Airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a set square and a calculator.
At a morning press conference the Attorney General said he believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-gebra movement.
He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of Maths instruction. “Al-gebra is a problem for us,” said the Attorney General. “They desire solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in a search of absolute value. They use secret code names like ‘x’ and ‘y’ and refer to themselves as ‘unknowns’. But we have determined they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with co-ordinates in every country. As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, ‘There are three sides to every triangle.’”
When asked to comment on the arrest, President Crump said, “If God had wanted us to have better weapons of Maths instruction, He would have given us more fingers and toes.”
White House aides told the gathered reporters they could not recall a more intelligent or profound statement by the President.
