Attention UAE readers! My controversial novel, Bloody Flies, is now available to order at all Magrudy's bookshops. It's still not on the shelves but at least you can order it.
Find out what the fuss is about -- buy it now!
Here is my first review from the Netherlands. They appear to like Bloody Flies. http://www.xpat.nl/book_reviews
I had the great pleasure of being interviewed today for the Writers Abroad Radio Show, by Jo Parfitt, in the Netherlands. The show should be available online for your listening pleasure sometime next week. I'll post the link here when it's available.
Please check out the following two blogs:
The first one www.lauradempsey.com is by the eponymous artist. Laura has been working with me on a new children's book called Colin Colour Fingers, which you'll hear more about over the next year. Watch this space.
The second is poet Kathy Greethurst's Angelhouse blog, which is hosting Helena Frith Powell's review of Bloody Flies. http://kathy-greethurst.blogspot.com/2012/06/bloody-flies-by-andrew-j-keir-review-by.html
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.
