Told in a very conversational and light tone, Jack takes you for a ride with him and Liam as they go through a series of interesting encounters. This book is full of entertaining narratives of real life experiences that will surely tickle your funny bones.”



Louise Ross, author of Women Who Walk on writing the right book

Ever had the feeling that what you are writing is not the right book? I think it happens to every writer at one time or another. If you’ve ever wanted to shelve one idea for another, please come along with Louise and find out how to make that decision. Here is a guest post from her featuring her newly-published book.
