Default First book

Hello Good people of the Proc, I have accomplished a life long goal in writing and publishing a book (albeit on Amazon Publishing Direct). I would love the opinion of my fellow Corkonians. I grew up in Cork and have lived in the US for the last 28 years. The book is sci-fi and set in the Waste of North America but there are many allusions to Celtic mythology and even modern Irish culture. I hope you enjoy, thanks.
You can find the book on Amazon or kindle under The Divide: the Cool and the Waste

Roundy

Fair play to you and best of luck with it, I hope it goes well for you - but given this places history with personal info i'd wonder about leaving links to your name etc via the book title. Its a pity but PROC is stocked full of nutters!

I was a wee bit worried about that but I live 2,000 miles away and, when it all comes down to it, it is only the internet.

Default Well done.

Amazon Direct is a good publishing option given today's crazy book market. I hope it goes very well for you.

Fair play, Roundy. It reads very well, but I've spotted formatting and punctuation errors, even just from a glance.

This isn't a dis. I swear. Can you edit the uploaded file?
