So, today I was going to ride a horse, naked, through London. This would have been quite a feat, considering I can’t even ride a horse, let alone ride one naked. I think my private parts are thanking me greatly. All that leather chafing … Well, you can imagine, can’t you? Then again, you may not wish to imagine it at all. It’s raining, you see, and one can’t possibly ride naked through the streets of London in the rain, not if they are to avoid pneumonia and all sorts of ailments that come from such irresponsibility. The aim was to sell books, lift my profile a little, not kill myself. Although, on reflection, if I were to die from prancing naked on a horse in the pouring rain, then I most likely would sell more books. Imagine the publicity. I just wouldn’t be here to enjoy the fame. But then all geniuses aren’t recognised until after their demise, are they?
Anyway, as it is pissing down, I’ve decided to defer the whole thing to a drier and warmer day. I know they’re rare, but surely one will come along eventually, won’t it, rather like buses. You just have to be patient.
So, instead, I’m blogging about not riding a horse naked through London. Or, as Stephen Fry commented on Twitter, I really should ride naked through Coventry. Naked, except for a mask, of course. Good point, Stephen.
So, I thought, instead, I’ll blog about my new novel. I know. It’s not the same and you’d much prefer to have seen me riding the horse, or most likely clinging onto it, but that isn’t to be.
Do you like a good murder? A fictional one, not a real one. A mystery that you can’t solve? I bet you won’t guess the end of this one? Let me know if you do.
There’s a nasty character in this novel, and it’s down to Detective DS Kate Harper and DI Tom Miller to find them. The problem is Kate and Tom clash on just about everything. However, I think you’ll like them. Read about them below.
Lots of love
