Absent-mindedly, he stuffed his right hand in his jacket pocket and felt the jar. He drew it out, looked through the glass at the white lumps of organic matter inside and said aloud to himself, “Magic I don’t think so.” He tossed it in the metal waste bin then, as the clanging sound his action had caused resonated around the room, he had another thought and looked in the bin. The jar was still intact. He retrieved it, put it down on the laboratory bench, discarded his jacket and put on his labcoat. What followed next led to the discovery of Floracillin.
Summer is here and there is no better time to spend the day outside reading on lazy sunny days. It will soon be the holiday season in the northern hemisphere so choose some books to take with you to while away idle relaxing moments.
It is a good time for authors and publishers to release books so that bookstores at airports, train stations and holiday resorts can stock up to help travellers make those last minute purchases. Peatmore Press is no exception and has launched its fourth novel which is the first I have released under my own name. It is a crime thriller and I am told by those who have had a chance to turn the pages that it is a good read. But see for yourself and let me know how you feel about it.

The unexpected popularity of my bike travelogue ebook, ¨American Road¨, prompted me to search through my old journals and photographs for earlier tales of my motorcycle adventures. I managed to find an account written about a trip I took to the Munich Beer Festival in 1980. This has been supplemented by my memory of that event and enhanced by my motorcycling activities before and after that time. Alas, most of the later experiences have had to rely largely on my memory, but I am grateful for the fact that I always took a camera with me. The resulting photographs have been invaluable in reawakening my memories of those travels.
American Road is available on Amazon and on Apple’s iBook store. So far most of its sales have come from Amazon so in the first instance Bike Travelling Man will only be available from Amazon kindle stores in the Mobi (Kindle) format. Clicking (or tapping) on the link below or on the link in the side panel will take you to the web page where British and American readers can find further details and can access their relevant online stores.
I hope this account and the photographs will provide as much entertainment for my readers as the previous ebook seems to have done.

Peatmore Press has just released a second ebook short story collection as a follow up to Crime and Passion. C&P brought together two writing styles, one dark and one light that also manifested itself in the first two Peatmore novels, Cogrill’s Mill and Victim of Compromise, and because of this two different pen names were used. This was always going to be difficult to sustain with the second short story collection particularly as it encompassed just one central theme, namely that of starting over. Thus it was decided that the new book would be put out under my real name and the title New Beginnings.
This does not mean that the names Jack Lindsey and Luke Johnson will no longer be used. There is a third Jack Lindsey novel, written in the same light vein as the previous two, currently in the planning stage.
New Beginnings by Keith Jahans is available on the Amazon Kindle Store and as an Apple ibook on the iTunes Store via the Peatmore Press website at http://www.peatmore.com
