Garry asked some questions I hadn't encountered before and I think this will give readers some new perspectives on Bloody Flies.
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.

I've been informed through an intermediary that the National Media Council will not process Bloody Flies at this time. I was told that their representative enjoyed the book but he would not be completing the authorization process. He emphasised that the UAE doesn't ban books.
This non-ban means that I'm unable to do publicised public signings in the UAE and that I've had to withdraw the novel from souq.com. On the other hand Bloody Flies is still available for UAE residents (And everyone else) to buy online, from Amazon, Waterstones, Kobo, itunes, Barnes & Noble, The Mighty Ape etc.
Bloody Flies is causing a stir. Tell your friends.
