The Date 8th December 2016
Time and Place 7pm in upper floor suite, The Iron Horse, 115 West Nile St (city centre),
The Event The Launch of What Spooked Crazy Horse? the eagerly awaited second book in the Charlie Brock series by Glasgow author Alex Gordon
Admission is free and all are welcome.
Well known for his many sports books like King and Country The Denis Law story; Seeing Red, the Chic Charnley story; Caesar and the Assassin; Winds of Change; most recently That Season in Paradise; and many more, Alex Gordon had his book of hilarious anecdotes Jinx Dog Burns Now Flu published by Ringwood in 2015 to great acclaim, including a memorable appearance at the 2016 Aye Write Festival.
Ringwood are delighted to announce they have acquired the rights to the first Charlie Brock novel Who Shot Wild Bill? (described by the Daily Record as “a rumbustious debut novel”) and are even more delighted to announce the launch of the second book in the series What Spooked Crazy Horse?
Like the first Charlie Brock mystery novel, What Spooked Crazy Horse? is set mainly in Millport, although the action swings furiously from cities as diverse as Barcelona and Glasgow. It is the story of a missing Scottish Internationalist footballer, Derek ‘Crazy Horse’ Laird, one of the highest paid footballers on the planet, and what lies behind the mystery of his sudden disappearance that leaves two countries Scotland and Spain agog and anxious.
With a the mixture of mystery, action, humour and philosophy that makes Charlie Brock’s adventures so beguiling, What Spooked Crazy Horse? will consolidate Alex Gordon’s growing reputation as an author of highly entertaining fiction. Charlie Brock has been described favourably as Scotland’s answer to the legendary Kinky Friedman mystery novels.
Alex Gordon, a very entertaining speaker will speak at his launch and we expect the event will be graced by some of the famous football personalities he has written books about. All books sold on the night will be signed personally by Alex.
For those unfortunate enough to be unable to make the event, or who can’t wait until then to begin reading his new book, What Spooked Crazy Horse? can already be bought for £9.99 from www.ringwoodpublishing.com, immediately or from www.amazon,co.uk , with the ebook version available from Kindle Who Shot Wild Bill? is also currently available from the same three sources.
Once the Launch is over the evening will immediately switch to being the Ringwood Christmas Present Book Fair, where all Ringwood books will be available to buy as Christmas presents for reductions of between 25% and 50%. This event will entertain and enrich all lovers of good books and all people who realise books make excellent Christmas presents, especially so when signed by the author. Many Ringwood authors will be present to speak about and sign their books. Fuller details of this event will be circulated to you very soon. In the meantime alert all your friends and relatives to this unique opportunity to buy excellent Christmas presents at a much reduced price.
