Yes, that day has come!

Yes, that day has come, well for me anyway, but on Saturday, the 10th June 2017 to be the release of my new book, #24HoursInNewYork, which, if you wish, you, the reader, can pre-order, over here:  #24HoursInNewYork
#24HoursInNewYork is #11 in my writing catalogue and #3 in my selection of True Stories, so it begs the question, have you read the other two? The BESTSELLER #WrongPlaceWrongTime and #FiveWeeks, have you, no? yes? If not go and take a look at the many hundreds of 5* reviews....Let me know if you're enticed now!
Anyway, to entice you even further and to give you a little taster, below is the first chapter of #24HoursInNewYork called #SevenZero
I hope you enjoy it!

Seven Zero

I looked up at the two digits above the front door.

Seven. Zero.

The familiar numbers set behind a pane of glass that retained a long-standing crack stretched across the zero, were lodged inside a small box, embedded within the white painted wall.

But I hadn’t thought I’d be looking at them again quite so soon. 

Pressing the enamel doorbell which was encircled by a rusty silver frame, I looked down at the well-trodden welcome mat beneath my black shoes and studied the loose fibres detaching themselves in all directions as I anxiously wiped my worn, now well-travelled leather soles.

Twelve seconds later the silhouette of a figure appeared behind the door which then started to swing backwards.

As it disappeared into the shadow of the hallway, a face emerged, bathed in a golden glow as, at that moment, the sun escaped from behind the clouds above. 

It was Dad. 

‘Hello David,’ he said, shaking his head, with an animated smile.

All I noticed however, was what was hidden behind his welcoming facial expression.

His kind eyes telling me,

‘I knew this was going to happen.’

Go on, lets visit America and Marbella together.....
