Audio Book of Echoes of a Storm

I am very pleased to say that the Audio Book version of Echoes of  Storm will be released shortly. As I have received the following email from ACX

Hi Alan

  • Your audiobook will go through both ACX and Audible quality assurance (QA) rounds.
  • Once it passes, we will let you know and begin distributing it on Amazon, Audible and iTunes. The whole process usually takes up to 10-14 business days, as long as there are no problems.
  • If your audiobook does not pass QA for any reason, you and Cari Scholtens will be contacted right away with instructions for how to remedy this.

Exciting times 🙂

Scott, Alan: The “Y” Front Standoff (The Y-Front Chronicles) (2014)

Once again Alan Scott serves us a plateful of humour with a dash of serious. OMG, that talk-show. “Women Who Bitch With Other Women” remind me of some very popular talk-shows that definitely do not have ASD’s in mind. “Next season’s must-have fashion accessory!” indeed.

Once again, the idiotic government wants to kill their once-upon-a-time tool. This is one of the worst thing about governments around the world. For heavens sake, let SCoT-1 get his well-deserved revenge instead of wasting unnecessary lives trying to stop an unstoppable person – especially with Terminal Flatulence on his side.

I laughed. Out loud. Definitely recommended.

Falklands 1991

Falklands 1991

With the poppy appeal in full flow and armistice day fast approaching. It always reminds me of one night in the Falkland Islands in 1991.

I was a young man of 22 serving in the RAF, and was currently posted 8’000 miles from home in the Falkland Islands. I was living in a four man room, with 2 other RAF and a Paratrooper.

This one night, there was about 10 odd of us in the room drinking and watching Black adder goes forth on video. Although we were not suppose to have alcohol in the room , being caterers we had managed to get a few cans of beer in, and had a huge tea urn full of Vodka and Orange.

I should point out at this stage that we had just finished a five day exercise; we had been practising our roles in the event of the Falklands were invaded whist we were there.

So, if you can image it 10 odd men, 8000 miles from home, aged between 18 and 24 from the RAF, Army, Navy and the Para’s, in a 4 man room drinking, laughing, just of a 5 day exercise and watching Blackadder goes forth.

Then the laughter stopped and the mood changed as the final scene from Blackadder was played out.

For we all realised that we were far away from home, and what if what we had just been practicing became reality, then…

Please buy a Poppy this week.

Thank you

Alan

Two Great Reviews for “The Y Front Chronicles”

After my wonderful review for “The Y Front Stand Off,”  I have now got 2 great reviews for “The Y Front Chronicles”.

It is interesting that all the reviews for both the “The Y Front Chronicles” and the “The Y Front Standoff” are from ladies.

Have I been pitching the advertising for this book at the wrong target audience?  It’s a thought.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully dark and funny short-story 22 Aug. 2015

Alan Scott has written a wonderfully funny and dark story about murder and mayhem.

I suppose it could be read as a warning about the consequences of training our soldiers too well. The thought did not enter my mind until the classroom situation. But, yeah, that could work.

A man with his own brand of conscience and his pet hamster, TF. A killer with a pet hamster. Not much like the hamster I used to own and adore. SCoT-01 is a fun and terrifying person I would hope to always keep on my side. His hamster, too.

Definitely recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Utterly bonkers and absolutely hilarious! 25 Jun. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can’t compare this to any other sci-fi novels because I haven’t read any but I really enjoyed humour with elements of violence thrown in.The main character was interesting and there are parts where you start to feel empathy for this cold hearted killer who longs for a comfy pair of pants. I found this short story laugh out loud funny but then I do have quite a warped sense of humour!
