Two published novels so far, with translations and short stories alongside.

Both books available on Kindle, as is The Fart - a mini-story.

Enjoy.

Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments I love all the Welsh names in here. Making me homesick. :(

Cynan Jones (cynanjones) | 24 comments You should try reading The Mabinogion! (I'm working on one of Seren's New Stories at the moment).


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Dave's telling me all about it now! Very cool.

Hi Jud,

I had no idea The Long Dry was on Daily Deal until I got home to my emails at the end of the day. The deal was put in place by the publishers, who also ran a month long promotion on Everything I Found on the Beach.
