Friends of My Father

This is a title and cover change, originally published in paperback and ebook form as No More Heroes. Be ready first week in December 2015. Cover design is also a reason for the change, it having been suggested to me that the story content is not adequately represented by the original – more militaristic – title and cover image. This is the only reason for the change and is stated in the reprint’s flyleaf.

Apart from readers’ positive reviews online it has had an excellent and unsolicited review by Debbie Young, affiliated member of the Indie Authors group.

Friends of My Father is now available in ebook and paperback format.
