Busted – New Novel coming soon

Feels like we’re just waking up here after a long time of little activity – in the foreground at least.

We may go back to sleep after this or it may spark something off that leads to a huge increase in activity – i.e. sales of books.

Anyway, we are publishing a new novel by Derec Jones at the end of this month (May 2019)

In the meantime, here’s a picture of the cover and a little information that we hope will help to sell it.

Boys from the Backfields

Backfields-front 1 cover oct 8-2013Who killed Betty Fish?

In 1963 the world is rocking to the Beatles, and being rocked by the Cold War and the assassination of President Kennedy.

There are far more important things on the mind of Mick Matthews, a 13 year old boy growing up on a council estate in Wales, such as the murder of a middle-aged widow in one of the posh houses across the road. Mick and his small gang are out gathering blackberries and scrumping apples when they witness the murder as it happens.

Around the same time as the demise of Betty Fish, Mick falls in love with the enigmatic Angel, a girl of the same age.

Fifty years later, the murder is still unsolved and the shadows it casts over their lives are as dark as ever.
