Yes, indeed! It´s now available everywhere!

Yes, now you, too, could be as thrilled as my kids with this fantastic, internet-smashing news. This morning I had to force them to put the book down so they could go to school and learn about less interesting, useless things! Grab a copy before Amazon breaks and you are left with a feeling of gut-clenching desolation.

They´re actually thinking, “Now maybe dad´ll shut up about it”.

If you´re still undecided and fancy the bookish equivalent of window shopping – or if you´re just plain tight – you can read 3 free chapters at Instafreebie or join nearly 900 people at the Good Reads Giveaway or – sod it! It´s Friday! – you could buy the damn thing from Amazon UK here orAmazon US .

It´s also in many good bookshops and a few disreputable ones, plus there´s a few copies lying about my house if anyone wants them. I live in Madrid so warn me first if you´re coming. I´ll put some coffee on. Be warned, though, Spanish coffee is strong. Which reminds me, I´ll have to clean the bathrooms later.

If you´re still reading, what´s the weather like where you are? And what about Trump, eh? And those seven new planets? Imagine if this exact post is being read by someone there – how depressing would that be?

Get onto Facebook to win a signed copy which I will kiss for luck before I send out – and you can also win 50 pounds, dollars or baht for a charity of your choice.

Remember, all new subscribers to my page get sent a FREE St Francis´ School story. The form is to your left. It´s well worth it. The story is nuts and it makes some of the stuff in the book make sense.

Young Writers!  Give up now, while you can. Do something worthwhile! No, I´m joking: look out for new competitions to be posted here shortly. Sign up to my newsletter to make sure you don´t miss out. Keep writing. Keep reading.

Is anybody out thereeeeee?
