Update for Readers

Issue 15/2014

An update for lovers of contemporary fiction from author Dave Cornford.
Warm Honey in Free Audio
The podcast of Warm Honey is complete, and is available now on itunes thanks to podiobooks.  You can subscribe to it here. In the few weeks since it was released, Chapter 1 had been sampled 1,000 times, and the rest of the book downloaded about 300 times.

I'll let you know when the next audio book is ready - Guys Can Read is recorded and currently being edited, while there's regular releases most weeks on the Live-Fiction podcast as well.  

National Novel Writing Month

I managed to complete the 50,000 word target of NaNoWriMo in November - which is part of the reason this newsletter is a couple of weeks late. Most of those words were for  â€œDad’s Cricket Diary”, but I also finished up Wrong Number and The Project. Cheating? Who cares!  I wrote 50k words in a month - 52K in fact.

Dad’s Cricket Diary will be releasd in the New Year.

New Release - The Dinner Party

Four couples who have been friends for decades shun an expensive restaurant meal to get together at one of their homes.

Their shared pasts – the things they've done, the secrets they've kept – collide with the hard times some of them are facing right now to create a storm inside that rivals the one raging outside.

The Dinner Party is a fast-paced read that will keep you engrossed for up to an hour, as it lifts the lid on the home-cooked meal.

The Dinner Party is available now at amazon for a buck, and will appear in the upcoming compilation "Seven Deadlies" as the story exploring the sin of "Lust."

Coming SoonDecember is going to be a bumper month for new releases, with
  • Wrong Number (Live-Fiction 13)
  • The Project (Live-Fiction 14)
  • The Hacker Pack - Five stories featuring the recurring hacker characters Polly and Dexter.
  • Seven Deadlies - Seven stories themed on each of the 7 Deadly Sins.
New Release - Big Ashes Box

To mark the start of summer in Australia, The 17th Man's three Ashes book are now available in one big bargain bundle - The Big Ashes Box.

It's available now at amazon, and for every copy sold, we donate $1 to the McGrath Foundation.

Of course, we are also mindful of the recent tragic events on the cricket field involving the death of cricketer Phil Hughes. It's hard to get going with writing comedy at a time like this, but The 17th Man will be back in production when the international cricket starts for the year in a week or so.
