The Man Who Loved Islands #extract & #giveaway @dfr10 @orendabooks

The Man Who Loved Islands is the last part of David F Ross’s Disco Days Trilogy. It was published by Orenda books as an ebook in March and the paperback will be published on Thursday 20th April. I am delighted to be able to share an extract from the book and offer you the chance to win a paperback copy of the book. If you’re not lucky enough to win a copy, you can order online by clicking here.

First of all here’s what the book is about:

The Disco Boys and THE Band are BACK …

In the early ’80s, Bobby Cassidy and Joey Miller were inseparable; childhood friends and fledgling business associates. Now, both are depressed and lonely, and they haven’t spoken to each other in more than ten years. A bizarre opportunity to honour the memory of someone close to both of them presents itself, if only they can forgive … and forget.

Absurdly funny, deeply moving and utterly human, The Man Who Loved Islands is an unforgettable finale to the Disco Days trilogy.

To whet your appetite, here is an extract from the book. I should say that it does contain strong language so if that’s not your thing, don’t click the link.

About the author (courtesy of Amazon)

David F. Ross was born in Glasgow in 1964 and has lived in Kilmarnock for over 30 years. He is a graduate of the Mackintosh School of Architecture at Glasgow School of Art, an architect by day, and a hilarious social media commentator, author and enabler by night. His most prized possession is a signed Joe Strummer LP. Since the publication of his debut novel The Last Days of Disco, he’s become something of a media celebrity in Scotland, with a signed copy of his book going for £500 at auction, and the German edition has not left the bestseller list since it was published.
