“The next song begins with a real tender guitar part, a violin and accordion lightly scaling the edges. The vocal starts almost immediately on this one and it’s a deep, wistful wail of pain. I listen, stunned, as the band move through a verse – if such a thing could be called a verse – and then a small chorus of male voices join in. I forget to breathe for a second. It’s unbelievable. There is something Germanic about the whole thing. A u-boat requiem, a sailor-song of drowned men.”
Well, it only took about five years longer than I intended it to, but it’s finally done, and out on Amazon. E-book only for now, I still need to sort out a few formatting issues on the paperback.
A bit of a softer launch this time, I won’t be hawking it on Amazon forums like I did last time. I’ll probably just let a few people know who looked at my writing previously and then let it do whatever it is (or more likely isn’t) going to do for itself…
Off out for a beer now. So no further publicity shite today. Bibliography updates will have to wait as well.
