The Pest Ghost and Flotsam and Jetsam

Mortal Instinct is now available in print form from wherever you usually buy your print books. My favourite being the nearest indie bookstore.

eBook purchasing information is here or click ‘Mortal Instinct’s‘ very own page.

Pest Ghost … Ah the joys of spoonerisms … I meant guest post.

Flotsam and Jetsam is, among many other things, the title of a chapter in ‘The Two Towers’ from the ‘Lord of the Rings’, where Pippin and Merry are lounging in the mid-morning sun surrounded by the very watery ruins of Isengard after Saruman really, really, annoyed the Ents.

LoTR takes the concept of a ‘boy’s own’ adventure story to majestic heights, which leads me into my first ever Pest Ghost as a published author about that very subject.

Read and enjoy on the Wardancing Pixie’s own blog. Leave a comment if you’ve a mind to. Browse around. There are some rather interesting things there.

… erm … about that archaic phrase, ‘if you’ve a mind to’ … I’m fairly certain most people have a mind. What I meant was, ‘if you would like to’, but I kinda like my original wording.

LoTR is one of my all time favourite fantasy series. In another lifetime I had a beautiful boxed set that included The Hobbit  and The Silmarillion. I do miss it, on occasions.

Someone please tell me what this piece of music is called? I know it like the back of my hand, but can I see the back of my hand? … nope!

    I’ve hear the music dozens of times, but the name escaped me…so I Googled it: “In the Hall of the Mountain King”. Ahhhh, now I can sleep tonight 🙂

    I love that music,too. Thanks for introducing me to a new musician.

    How in the world do you google something you don’t know? Don’t you have to know what to google?


  3. Will it be sold online at Barnes and Noble or Amazon? Just went to both sites and saw only the e-book version at Amazon.

    Oh right – I was going to prowl in and say “Grieg” but of course Upoverites got in before me…. must say the idea of “Pest Ghost” intrigues me but I am not sure I wish to be haunted by one!
