5 Day Free Ebook Offer! Graveyard of the Pieties (Amazon)


From November 22 to November 26 2016 my ebook Graveyard of the Pieties is available 100% free on Amazon!

Three stories which are rather more ‘literary’ than many of my stories in fake news outlets. Lots of room for deep philosophical reflection on the part of thoughtful readers! However, the stories are very immediate and heartsome, and thus can be enjoyed merely as entertainment. Read the full story

Ebook Update: Ivory Tower Satire, & a Bit of Poetry!


Two more satire ebooks are coming out on May 31. Pre-order now!

Firstly:

Professor Smiggles & The New Intellectual Warfare (Gang of Sneers Volume 2)
https://www.amazon.com/Professor-Smiggles-Intellectual-Warfare-Sneers-ebook/dp/B01F6CEBI8/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1463842433&sr=8-4&keywords=wallace+runnymede
Yes, this is a series! For Gang of Sneers Volume 1, see our cuddly old UKIP ranter, Tarquin Binnett:
https://www.amazon.com/Tarquin-Binnetts-Englishmans-Common-Jamboree-ebook/dp/B01E4KJA5M

Professor Guru Angus Lenn(on/in)vedanta Smiggles of the Social Constructionist String Theory Department in Bushmills Metaphysical College cuts quite a dashing figure. This pompous intellectual knows well enough how to bamboozle myriad uneducated and uncultivated hoodlums: such as vicious Confederate collectivists, genially whimsical UKIP candidates, gutter tabloid hacks, and sexually frustrated campus liberation crusaders.

But after a few episodes of crisp and generous dismissal, the good Professor fades from view, and two rather disturbing fairy tales present a more disconcerting picture. London’s new addition to the crowded market of postmodern soap operas, and the unhappy tale of un-un-reconstructionism end the witty Parisian proceedings on a rather poignant and dispiriting note.

This second volume of Gang of Sneers also includes the book Wallace Runnymede & The Great Flâneur Massacre: Reflections In & Out of Season. The latter is a reflexive non-fiction work which was originally published separately as an accompaniment to my novella The Great Flâneur Massacre, which is now being re-released on May 31 2016, simultaneously with Professor Smiggles & the New Intellectual Warfare.

Ebook Update 1/2: Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes


My revision of #1 and #2 of Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes (I Shouldn’t Do God & Football Frikkups) are now through on all outlets! In addition, volumes #3 and #4 (I Still Shouldn’t Do God & Differently Humored) are now available too!

All four ebooks are free, and #4 is fairly timely for Autism Month, April 2016. It is disability-themed. #1 & #3 are religious satire, and #2 is football/soccer themed.

These ebooks are all available on Barnes & Noble, Apple iBooks, Kobo, Scribd, Page Foundry, Tolino, & 24 Symbols. Sadly not Amazon; but visit this very same site, Glossy News, in an hour from now; and you will see information about my recent range of Amazon ebooks!

Satirical Fiction & Poetry Updates: New Ebook Just Launched! (2/2)


Just an hour ago, I updated you on my new Youtube account, and the removal of the privacy settings that I carelessly didn’t know about!

I also discussed recent positive developments in my free ebooks series Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes, as serialized on one of my websites, Satire Catastrophes.

And, of course, my decision to start publishing ebooks on Amazon was big news!

On 25 April, the Gang of Sneers series of Amazon ebooks will begin. The first volume features loathsome red-top hack Jackie Smack, and the cuddly and genially rabid UKIP bigot, Tarquin Binnett!

But why wait until then? You can already begin pre-ordering Tarquin Binnett’s Sound Englishman’s Common Sense Jamboree from Amazon! Read the full story

Satirical Fiction & Poetry Updates: New Ebook Just Launched! (1/2)


Pre-order is over! Graveyard of the Pieties is finally launched at Amazon! This, my second Amazon Ebook, accompanies my rather dark short poetry collection, Foaming the Optics. Graveyard of the Pieties is the first volume of the Fatal Conceits ebook series; Fatal Conceits focuses on presumption, paternalism and various related topics.

Apologies for slight delay with the free Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes ebooks at some other outlets (the ones currently associated with Draft2Digital). The four volumes (including the brand new volumes #3 & #4) are currently under review and should be out by the time the article you’re now reading is out. If not, I’ll update you very soon! I’m publishing another article on the four ebooks anyway very soon…

So look out for that! And in the meantime, please enjoy the serial of the Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes ebook series at my general satire site, Satire Catastrophes.

And please do see also my channel on Youtube, for audio versions of some of these stories! (I’m not happy with the graphics for Youtube so far; I’ll update the cover pictures to something less drab and more exciting in the near future). Read the full story

Ebook News: New Satire Compilation, Two Ebooks Temporarily Withdrawn, And… What?! (2/2)


Yesterday, I said that I’ve recently decided to temporarily withdraw The Great Flâneur Massacre from the market, as well as Reflections In and Out of Season. I will reintroduce them later. I gave my reasons for doing so… Always important to strategize carefully!

And I also said:

I need to think about accessibility: particularly because this is my first ever piece of extended fiction! I don’t want to give an unnecessarily negative impression.

I also said:

So what am I going to do?

Well, that would be telling! Find out tomorrow…

Here’s my plan going forward. Read the full story

Ebook News: New Satire Compilation, Two Ebooks Temporarily Withdrawn, And… What? (1/2)


For some time, I’ve had three self-published ebooks available on a number of outlets:

1. My novella, The Great Flâneur Massacre.

2. The non-fiction accompanying volume, Wallace Runnymede and The Great Flâneur Massacre: Reflections In and Out of Season.

3.  The fake news satire collection I Shouldn’t Do God (first volume of the anticipated series Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophes).

Here, I’m going to discuss my strategy for the next while: not only to keep you informed, or to maintain interest in my ebooks, but also to provide some reflections that might be of use for some people who either have self-published in the past, or are contemplating doing so in future.

Preview for Self-Published Play: “The Great Flâneur Massacre.”


The you-know-where has been abuzz with speculation on the novella in quasi-dramatic form that Wallace Runnymede is due to self-publish in the near future.

(Well, June, actually. But then, why should Wallace Runnymede tell you the exact date at this stage? That would spoil all the fun; or Wallace Runnymede’s fun, in any case; which is not an entirely inconsequential consideration, after all).

However, the Malign-Forces-of-International-Creative-Transparency-Fundamentalism may be somewhat disappointed, that Wallace Runnymede’s first fairly lengthy work will be released under a pseudonym, and not under his real name. Read the full story
