UNCLE MILDRED . . . coming soon . . .

Well, as some of you might be aware, I've collected some of my stories together and will putting them out as an ebook under the title 'UNCLE MILDRED and Other Stories.  All of these stories have been published before in one form or another - although all have been re-tweaked - but I wanted an opportunity to gather the best of them all together in one place.

Initially, I was going to make the thing a freebie, but then I had a thought . . .

My little sister was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago.  So was my mum, and my aunt.  Thankfully, all are now well.  But the experience, blimey, there's nothing like it to reassess what life really means and to see what courage really is.

My sister and my brother-in-law, and my brother, Stu, have all raised money for cancer charities since.  So I thought it was about time I did my bit.

Therefore, Uncle Mildred and Other Stories will be available within the next week, priced at £1.53/$2.41 with all proceeds going to cancer charities both in the UK and the US.

I'll post more details soon as I get them to hand.

If, like me, you're pretty struck by the cover of the book, that's all down to my very talented artist sister-in-law, Rebecca Ayris, and letter man extraordinaire - Liam Sweeney.

Cheers,

Ian
