"The Last Olympiad." Republished Now

I am happy to say that my novel, "The Last Olympiad" has been republished by Anixe Publishing Ltd. as a paperback available from Amazon and all good online stores ISBN 978-0-9574523-0-5.  e-book will be out in March 2013.

DO NOT BUY THE RAIDER VERSION they no longer have the rights.

I have noted that they continued to sell despite their rights had expired and that they have not paid me any royalties in the last year.

Even before the British Olympic Committee won the right to stage the 2012 games they confidently displayed a ‘Countdown to London’ banner on their website.
Little did they know that it was also a simultaneous countdown to events that, if they became known, would make London 2012:
‘The Last Olympiad.’
When Gavinder, a disaffected British born Moslem helped install an explosive device in the concrete undercroft of London’s new Olympic Stadium he thought it was set to destroy the structure and cause the cancellation of the games. But other forces are at work and the consequences are far more than his conscience can reconcile.
How did the son of a peace loving, law abiding family find himself involved in terrorism? A remarkable athlete wasted when unwitting prejudice left him rejected and disillusioned. The well intentioned attempts to turn him from the street-crime he was slipping into dropped him into the clutches of those who would capitalize on his troubled mental state for their own purposes.
Menaced by Shakir, a murderous munitions expert, he is torn between revenge, his innate humanity and his duty to the Jihad. He is involved in love, hate, murder, rape and retribution. Can he keep his faith? If he tells the authorities will they believe him? Can he recover the computerized key that is the only way of disarming the device? Aided in London by a young Islamic student and complicated by a team of mercenaries with dubious loyalties, his adventures take him across Europe, into North Africa and back to London in time for the doomed opening ceremony. Fate, right wing extremists and Anglo-American confusion all play a vital part in the outcome.

Raider Publishing a Big Letdown

No matter what I do to promote my novel 'The Last Olympiad' it is going nowhere due to the failure of the publishers, "Raider Publishing International."
They do not respond to my emails and have reneged on most of the promised services under the publishing contract so I have decided to cancel out.
I will shortly self publish the book in both electronic and paperback forms so watch this space for release dates.

The Last Olympiad

In the absence of my Author copies I have had to resort to purchasing retail a copy of my book in order to reassure myself that it has, at last, been produced correctly.To my relief it has.
It has taken more than 2 years from the publication date to have a marketable copy and I feel badly let down by Raider. They still have not met half of their obligations under the contract and due to a whole catalogue of their errors the best and unrepeatable marketing opportunity, the London 2012 Olympic Games,  has been squandered.

Thursday, 13 September 2012

I have just received a new copy of The Last Olympiad and after 3 years of waiting for Raider it is correct.
Unfortunately I had to buy it retail as they have yet to send me my 40 authors copies as agreed in the contract.
