Saint Joe the Prick

Novel Snippet Number 2

Here’s the second snippet from the first draft of the new novel. I intend to get this book done, dusted and published by the middle of 2017. The book is set in a seaside city in England in the mid-70s. It features a gang of small time, small thinking men with one, very big thinking woman. Here we get to meet two of the “Loose Lads Gang”. I’d be interested to know what you think.<

Novel Snippet Number 1

Elvis is replaced by Roy Orbison who is crying. Crying. Crying. Midday comes slowly around the horizon with milky cloud cover and still the drizzle continues with grease its picked up from the boats that leave and return all day, all day. You can’t hear this rain. It lacks romance.
