Thoroughly enjoyable, very witty so far...and what!?! The end? 12 pages!?!

Oh man.

Cruel, I tellya. Just plain damn cruel. Ok, what a very clever author, got us right where she wants us, bloody addicted and craving for more. The author has a wonderfully playful prose and a rather naughty sense of humour without explicitness.

A wicked short story and prequel to a first novel that I'm really looking forward to reading. Both chilling and scifi at the same time.
This (being a short story) gives us a glimpse of the kind of unique and quirky stories that I think Gayle is going to write.
I'm very much looking forward to what is coming next!

This prequel #1 was such a fun little read. I couldn't stop grinning from the witty and typical British humour. It's like Bridgette Jones meets assassins. Cannot wait to finish the sequel to this prequel: Shoemaker's Son.

Wow. I thought it would be good, but I didn't think it would be this good! Where ever Darcy ends up, it's got to be better than that crappy office surrounded by buffoons. It was very good, very short, and certainly leaves you wanting more. Since it's described as a 'prequel to the 1st in a series', I am completely, 100%, on the edge of my seat waiting for the 1st novel to come out. Gayle Ramage is definitely an author to watch.

Well if that title doesn't make you want to read this little shortie - I don't know what will!
Free on Smashwords, Cigs, Bolan and Strange Men with Guns is an appetiser to A Head For Assasination by upcoming writer Gayle Ramage. It combines time travelling with dark humour. One to watch :)

Awesome and tasty treat. I'm really looking forward to the next in this series (already in my collection).

If this is just a sample of things to come, I can't wait to read the full-length book.
