Mister Wine Gum

Here's an outline of the Cerne Abbas Giant made from wine gums on the beach... Must be a promotion for my forthcoming novel, Mister Gum. And so it is! As far as I'm aware this book is due to be published at the end of June. I started writing Mister Gum back in 2006 but did most of the work last summer. The novel is made up of four interconnected parts. The first part is a satire against the teaching of creative writing; the second part is a satire against crime fiction; the third part is a satire against detective fiction; and the fourth part (this is the bit I really like) is a satire against satire. Presto!
