  1. Hello. I am looking for agents, publishers, sellers, buyers and reviews for my book. I have released my 2014 paperback horror novel on Amazon called, “Francis Thompson and the Ripper Paradox.” It’s about an actual homeless poet who turns out to be the devil.

    Briefly about me: I have held a range of occupations, including a secondary teacher of English, having worked teaching high school, Drama & Dance, Music, Physics, Information Technology & Business Communications. I also worked for a time for a major bank, and was a marketing assistant for a printing firm and co-managed an inner city gaming venue. I was an active Australian Army reservist, and member of a local theatre company. He gained My Batchelor of Arts Degree from the University of La Trobe Melbourne Campus, where I majored in Philosophy and minored in History and 19th Century Literature. I left with an honour offers for both History and Philosophy. It was here that I guest lectured for 3rd year Media Ethics on the topic of the representations of the press of the Ripper crimes. I received my Diploma of Education for English & Drama at the University of Melbourne. My Childhood was surrounded by death. Before the age of 9 I had been dead three times. Once, in 1973, when I was aged three, I was overcome by smoke in a house fire. My rescuer dragged me from my burning family home just before the roof collapsed and a volunteer surf lifeguard who had come to watch the fire gave 1st aid. The lifeguard found no heartbeat before he began resuscitation. The second time, I was a five-year-old pedestrian hit and run victim. The paramedics found me lying on the road with severe multiple injuries and no heartbeat having apparently bled to death. The 3rd time was exactly like the second but this time I was eight years old.

    This novel is the first that introduces the English Catholic poet Francis Thompson (1859-1907) as a ripper suspect. Written by an expert on Thompson and the Ripper case, the novel draws on copious factual material gathered from around the world research to explain how his rise began as the perpetrator of the cluster of 5 terrible murders of 1888 in London’s East End. This novel tells that Thompson sought to raise the dead and then stay alive after his own passing by hiding behind history and in our minds. The book is based on non-fiction works, including old press reports, police documents, letters, biographies, uncut-volumes, and historical artefacts and documents. It has been resourced from personal access to mostly archival material from places like London’s Guildhall Library, London’s National Gallery, The British Library, The Kew National Archives, (Dear Boss Letter) the New York Public Library, The Victorian State Library, Boston College’s Burns Library’s (Thompson’s private notebooks for years, including 1888, and other unpublished documents) I’ve examined the murder sites and have lectured on these murders including as a delegate at the 2005 International Jack the Ripper conference held in Brighton.

    Dear Gary,

    I am writing to ask if you would consider reviewing my contemporary novel They Call Me Crazy, published November, 2014 by Red Adept Publishing. I read your review guidelines, and I feel my book would be a good fit for your blog. I have included the book description, as well as links to an excerpt in the body of this e-mail. I would be happy to send you a download code for an e-copy of the novel in MOBI or E-PUB format.

    Thank you for your consideration!

    They Call Me Crazy

    Cass Adams is crazy, and everyone in Deacon, Kansas, knows it. But when her good-for-nothing husband, Roland, goes missing, no one suspects that Cass buried him in their unfinished koi pond. Too bad he doesn’t stay there for long. Cass gets arrested on the banks of the Spring River for dumping his corpse after heavy rain partially unearths it. The police chief wants a quick verdict—he’s running for sheriff and has no time for crazy talk. But like Roland’s corpse, secrets start to surface, and they bring more to light than anybody expected. Everyone in Cass’s life thinks they know her—her psychic grandmother, her promiscuous ex-best friend, her worm-farming brother-in-law, and maybe even her local ghost. But after years of separate silences, no one knows the whole truth. Except Roland. And he’s not talking.
