Well, things have been neglected here. This was supposed to be the one stop shop for all things related to 'Dogs Chase Cars.'

Unfortunately, time running away like horses over the hills, almost all of the relevent information has been dropped onto my main site over at

So, here is a summary of what has happened so far...

1) The e-version of DCC was published 3rd February 2011 and has been doing pretty well for an unknown first timer. It has charted as high as 16 on the humourous fiction countdown. Generally, over the course of the day, it bounces around between early thirties and lower teens.

2) The paperback has sold much better than I imagined and that should only be helped in April when it starts to hit actual shops. First two on board are The Runaway Mule in Nacocgdoches, Texas - which is an amazing place run by my good friend and fellow writer, Tim Bryant. In the UK, it is to be picked up at News From Nowhere on Bond Street in Liverpool.

Personal Appearances;

I can be found over the coming of months in a variety of settings, doing whatever it is when we appear 'live and interrupted' to push a book at people.

First up is the Lancashire Writing Hub - on 24th March. This will be a reading at the Continental in Preston, Lancashire from 8pm onwards. The bill features a collection of other writers/poets, including Mark Charlesworth and Chris Newton, whose 'Life Begins at 40,' debut I am reviweing for The Hub, this very week.

I am also due to appear at the Ormskirk Owl writing/reading circle (date TBC).

In November, I will be apearing at Mark's Kitchen in Takoma Park, Maryland. This fantastic bar is one of the settings in 'DCC' and I am excited to be dropping in with a book and re-sampling the beer menu.

That's all for today. I wouldn't want anyone to gnaw their foot off.
