I’ve created an Amazon Listmania of books published by authors I know personally. This gets around trying to have a genre-related list and is a great way to link my writerly friends. Here it is.
One of my Beyond Hill (a group of us who used to be clients of the Hill & Hill Literary Agency) friends, Brain Withecombe, has had his latest novel published by Chipmunkia. It is on my Listmania list in the link above. At the Eleventh Hour is the story of a platoon of infantrymen in the last eleven hours of the First World War, when, even though an Armistice had been agreed to end the bloodshed, soldiers were required to continue fighting until the very last moment, solely to gain as much ‘ground’ as possible before hostilities ended. Each chapter covers one hour until, at last, they could lay down their arms. Brian’s treatment covers the angst yet with ironic humour of the way soldiers’ lives are used as political pawns.
Consider too, Brian’s historical sea-faring novel, The Seagull and Le Corsair, also from Chipmunkia and on my Listmania.
