    How about writing (or cut n paste) the first chapter onto a thread, over a few weeks?
    Im sure you an Dean could come to some sort of arrangement for it.

    Is there an ebook?

    Hard to get rid of, that dog. He tends to come back for another bite sometimes too, hey…

    Not sure if I should put a short extract up or not. I mean, there's an early chapter where Wally first meets his lawn mowing man, but as Wally is asleep and naked in the bushes, and copping the whippy cord on the behind, there's kind of a lot of swearing going on.
    If anyone wants to read it, they can use the Look Inside The Book feature on Amazon though, and read the first 10% of the book without even buying it.
    And if you still don't think it's the most disgusting piece of poo ever flung from the end of a whipper snipper, you can buy the ebook or a print copy from there.
    Actually, I talked to the publisher today, and they agreed to drop the price for the next week or so.
    So, the ebook's usually only $4 anyway, but right now you can grab it for a dollar.
    But if you want a print copy, it'll set you back about 15 bucks, plus Amazon will skin you alive, another 10 bucks for the postage.

    So yeah, it's a few hours cheap entertainment for a dollar at the moment. And for anyone who doesn't realise it, you can read an ebook on any ipad or smartphone or computer — you just download the Kindle app when you buy the book.

    Just one thing. When you see it, it might look a bit girlie. It has to, because it's mostly women that buy books. But anyone who's not a total wowser's going to enjoy it, and I haven't met too many of those on the end of a lawn mower.

    Thanks for showing interest, guys. Here's a link, hope it works.

    Hey, thanks to whoever bought the book or told someone about it.
    Well, someone must have, because esterday it got up to a ranking of 10,000 on the Amazon.com ebook bestseller list, and it's still in the top 20,000 now, which puts it in the top 1% of all books in the store.
    Not bad for a first book from an old mowing bloke who can't pull the cord any more…
    Let me know what you think once you've read it.
