Member Fidamahilton  re book "Crying for Joy"

Yes, you may buy a  book but I have only 19 copies that I can personally sign left.

To answer your comment that the book sounds good, as the author I am somewhat prejudiced  ;)

I have received great feedback from U.S.A and England.

SOME COMMENTS RECEIVED:

1="I read this book in 6 hours, house and children away for the day"!

2= "I thought  the beginning was a bit slow but then I got to the part where I just couldn't put it down.

3= "Exciting, exciting exciting-  Where can I buy your second book please?
 
4="There were a couple of parts that I felt were unconnected . A minor fault really enjoyed the book as did my wife.

5= It's not the usual 'Lived Happily ever after' ending but it's a great forerunner for the next book. Well done.
BELOW IS ONE FROM THE U.S.A.

You state this book is totally fictitious.  :-\ I was born and bread in the New Lodge area. Some of your comments are dead on for life in the 30's then and I could relate to them :o . Naturally the murders are pure FICTION. Congratulations.
                      -------------------------------------------------------------
I wanted to send this to you personally but really I'm not technology friendly. I've forgotten how to do that, lost all my emails on learning.

Sorry,
Best regards
Sarah
