Book Excerpt – Magic Bullets Prologue

January 3, 2019

The bullet crashed through the plate glass window and into the customer’s forehead.  It smashed through his skull and embedded itself in the wall behind him.  People screamed as the plump middle-aged man was flung off his chair away from the table where he had been dining and the shooter stepped through the shattered opening into the restaurant.
    He had not wanted to waste bullets by spraying rounds indiscriminately so he had set the Kalashnikov rifle he was holding to fire single shots.  These were to be surgical killings and he wanted to shoot dead all who crossed his path.  His feet crunched on the broken glass as he trod carefully forward and shot a woman, sheltering beneath the table in the back of the neck.  A man who looked like a waiter made a dash for two double doors and he shot him in the back before he could reach them.  Some people ran, but those who were not quick enough or those who cowered on the floor he shot one by one.  Dark blood flowed with food, drink and broken crockery among the unturned chairs.

Book Excerpt – Magic Bullets by Keith Jahans

October 13, 2018

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.

Summertime Reading

July 6, 2018

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.

Self Promotion

May 20, 2017

One of the biggest challenges an author has to face is to advertise his or her writing.  It often goes against the grain and in my case this is certainly true.  Writing is a lonely art and means that the writer is more than likely shut away on their own with whatever tools they use (pen, paper, typewriter, PC) and don’t emerge with a final product until it is felt that the time is right to show it to someone.

Leonardo da Vinci has been quoted as saying that Art is never finished, only abandoned.  This is certainly true of my written work as it goes through draft after draft until I feel I can take it no further.  So by the time I have finished with a manuscript and my book is published I can hardly bare to look at it again let alone discuss its creation with others.

But those who especially enjoy reading fiction are likely to be fascinated by the creative process, particularly if they are engaged by a particular writer’s work and want to find out more.  So about a week ago when I was given the chance to discuss my writing in an online interview I jumped at the opportunity, because not only did it give me a chance to demonstrate the motivation behind my writing process but it also provided me with a great opening to promote my books

Bike Travelling Man

April 15, 2015

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.
