For the Rankinites

Postby Who's Wee Dug » Thu Jan 31, 2013 12:11 am

New Rankin Brentford Trilolgy to be written.

I have one more book to write for a publisher then Far Fetched Books, my own little book company will publish a new Brentford trilogy, I intend to self-publish one novel and one illustrated book each year until I snuff it. Then I won't write anything else. :lol:

Who is this Brentford guy? What is the trilogy? Are his books anything like the discworld novels? I don't read anything much other than Terry pratchett books see so I need some info before I buy anything.
Well, you know what they say. The past is a foreign country - - With an outdated military and huge oil reserves!

Brentford is a place, not a guy. Do you live near a library? It might be time for you to diversify a bit! ;)
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

Also look them up on Amazon and you can get a preview inside and a quote by PTerry on the blurb is, someone who makes me laugh. :mrgreen:

I'm not paying seventeen quid for it.

Will wait to see if it becomes available on Kindle.

There is going to be a film made. :D

With deep joy I can now announce that I have just had a phone call from film director Martin Gooch to say that Gothic Manor (in association with Far Fetched Films) will be turning ALICE ON MARS into a movie.A Mr Omally, a Mr Pooley and a Mr Rune will be involved in this production. I am very very happy.."
