First and foremost, I would like to express my sincere thanks to you for your either approaching this website directly, or serendipitously happening upon it in a spirit of curious exploration…

Secondly, I think it only polite to explain that I have constructed this website in the hopes that I might generate sufficient interest in my first novel,

“Fly Up, You Rooks!”

to inspire a publisher to take a chance on it. I would be extremely grateful if, having surveyed all this site has to offer, you would lend your support to its aims by visiting the ‘I Petition Thee!’ section, where an inducement to so do is also to be found…
