Catnap

Post by Joolz on Thu 10 Jan 2013, 17:27

Catnap is a short, currently available free for Kindle users.

Here is the Amazon UK address ... Catnap by Jim Bond

It's a nice little read, utterly unlike his usual books, and nothing at all to do with HNF. Not something I would normally go for, but I enjoyed it.

I'm fascinated........'a bit of Bond' in an entirely different genre. Let's see if I recognize the author 'by style'.

I trust this will not impede our 'travels out of home waters' as the follow-on to Patriot's Fate emerges. But then, 'shifting pens' is, I'm told, a useful technique to 'refreshing the mind' while developing a series.

Thanks, Joolz.

Yes, Catnap is probably about as far from HNF as it is possible to get, although not such a major departure for me as it appears. In the past I have written in many genres, and always maintain that each improves the whole - if you see what I mean...

It was a strange sensation, writing without a pile of reference books or Post It notes covering every available space, but I am glad to say that I am back on track and the next HNF is well on the way.

I agree with Joolz...........and Alaric as well.

I've not read anything quite like this before, but I did find it 'entertaining' and it kept my attention.

You have 'quite an imagination' my friend.

I am in a lot of trouble over Catnap; never again will I portray an absolute bounder in the first person.

People are looking at me strangely; my wife has been subjected to conversations that begin with "Well I never knew..." and all seem to have entirely missed the point.

My fault, I'm sure, but in my next deviation from HNF I will write about an elderly nun, and see if they find the "real me" then...

Hey ho!

Hey ho.....exactly

Make sure that you 'charge them' to read about that 'elderly nun'.

You don't happen to drive a Merc'....do you?

Again, I found Catnap 'entertaining'.
