Barnaby thinks about pigs

Actually, Barnaby has been thinking about a variety of animals during the past few days including badgers, chickens, pigs and monkeys, all of which are included in Gary Weston's new ebook Starlight Army, which has a theme concerning cruelty against animals. Su Kane and the Starlight Army ride out with the Revolting Animals Motorcycle Club to fight for those who share our planet but have no voice. Proceeds from his book go to the Peoples Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA)
(you can find out more about Starlight Army here )
Barnaby is happy to use this space to draw your attention to Gary's book, which is clearly getting a good reception from those who have already read it.
Of course, Barnaby also hopes that when you've checked out Gary Weston's books you'll also remember to visit to sample more of his own books.
Whichever you choose, Happy Reading.

Barnaby thinks about road noise

Barnaby is fortunate to live in a beautiful part of the world, in Devon, surrounded by rolling hills and archetypal British farmland with it's patchwork of fields and hedges. He was walking with his partner and her dog yesterday and stopped to admire the view, which was, sadly, blighted by noise from the main road in the valley. Now Barnaby is not an engineer, but he supposes that since cars have become more aerodynamic over the years, with better and quieter engines, most of this noise is probably tyre noise. Perhaps the focus on tyre design over coming years could be to find ways to reduce this form of noise pollution and restore some tranquility to the countryside.
However, in the short term, Barnaby has a solution.
Find a comfortable spot with a great view. Open a bottle of wine, put in your earphones and play yourself some great background music. With your free hand, take up your ebook reader and try out one of Barnaby's books. A feast for the eyes, the ears, the mind and the stomach. What bliss!

Coming soon to an ebook reader near you

The stories have been wtitten. The proofs have been read and most of the formatting is now complete for the next volume of short stories, cunningly entitled Barnaby's Shorts (volume two) to prevent any possible confusion with a book of a similar name, Barnaby's Shorts (volume one).

Coffee break sized stories including gentle humour, a touch of sci fi, a smidgen of romance and an air of mystery. Stories include The Running Boy, The Magician's Cabinet, The Turing Test and The Case of the Missing Spray Cleaner.

Short stories ideal for lulling you to sleep at bedtime or reading on the train on your way to work.

Is it possible for an author to become trapped in a Kindle? What if you were being stalked by the Invisible Man? and where exactly do people go when magician's make them disappear?

Answers to these questions and more inside. It is anticipated that this book will be available on Smashwords within the next couple of days. Meanwhile, you can find all Barnaby's other books at right now.

Barnaby thinks about medals

We are into the second week of the London 2012 Olympic Games and Great Britain is doing well in the medal table. Barnaby has been taking a keen interest in sports that normally leave him undisturbed. He salutes all the athletes from every country who have achieved so much simply to get to perform at the games, whether they win or lose.
Downloads of 'Every which way but East' and 'Barnaby's Shorts (volume 1)' are going well and some good feedback has been received.
You can award Barnaby his own medal, if you enjoy his books, by leaving a review and telling your friends.
Despite the Olympic Games, Barnaby has found time to write a few more short stories and it is anticipated that Volume 2 of Barnaby's Shorts will appear before the end of August. Visit for up to date information on all of Barnaby's books.
