It has been a while

As real life has intervened, I have been less than diligent in checking what is happening to 'Scholarship'. Although won't let me look at the sales figures, it is still available, if not there, then at (and related national outlets). Amongst the options to buy at amazon there are a number of secondary resellers, they are either at or above the price for a new book, not quite sure why. One seller is quoting in excess of $600 for a copy! As the author I promise you I see absolutely none of that, perhaps it is aimed at 'specialist readers who don't (or won't) use amazon? Anyway, it remains available, I accept Scholarship is a niche read so I am not sure for how long it will be available. If it goes, it goes, at which point I suspect the price will go up, very much as the price for books such as 'The Boys' have escalated to scary levels. Ian


  1. I stumbled on your blog while idly looking up Mark Behr (I very much enjoyed his novels when I read them some years ago).

    Then I noticed your own book and made use of the opportunity to download a free copy. On my budget, and because of an unfavorable exchange rate, there is no way I can buy anything from Amazon at the moment.

    But having gotten away with reading it for free, I felt I would be amiss if I did not at least let you know just how much I enjoyed it, and how moving I found it. Great work; I recommended it to all my friends.

  2. I love the name!

    I have no problem with people going for the free version of the novel, I calculated a long time ago that a 'paper only' version would probably not earn me a significant amount of money and would limit the number of people who would read the book so decided I would let you the reader choose.

    I am glad you enjoyed it!
