Check out the latest newspaper article about the banning of Bloody Flies:
Here's Khalid Al Ameri (The National) following up on the UAE's ban/non-ban of the Fifty Shades series:
He makes an interesting case about cultural sensitivity, but I'm not convinced that it applies in all cases, i.e. Bloody Flies.
Is Fifty Shades banned or not banned in the UAE?
PS: If you liked Fifty Shades of Grey, why not Bloody Flies on Kindle or in Paperback?

Garry asked some questions I hadn't encountered before and I think this will give readers some new perspectives on Bloody Flies.
Waterstone's are interested in launching Bloody Flies in Glasgow in early august.
This will more than make up for my UAE launch being blocked.
Watch this space for developments.
If you live in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, India, South Africa, France, Germany, UK, USA ... your life is now richer. Yes, from today, you can buy or order Bloody Flies form all good bookshops. The only place that might find a bit more difficult is the UAE ... But never fear, even Dubai, AbuDhabi and Fujairah residents can buy it on Amazon in ebook and paperback.
Helena Frith Powell, novelist and favourite of Sunday supplements everywhere, has written a review of my new novel, Bloody Flies.
I've created a web page for the purpose of hosting the review. I know this is not how things are normally done, but Bloody Flies is not a normal book.
