The Wake CrasherThe Wake Crasher is a new book and debut novel from new Indie author Robert Durrant.

It is a book that examines moral principals and can divide opinion on whether you think the principle characters are just having some harmless fun or are a little bit sick and misguided. A dark humoured romantic comedy that describes the consequences of being a ‘Wake Crasher’.

The Wake CrasherInitially the perpetrators embark on what they see as a harmless way of getting a few free drinks and a bite to eat at a time when they are struggling to pay the bills in a world that is in financial meltdown.

It is not too long however before they come to realise that there is no such thing as a free ride and that every action they take comes at a price, especially when they dabble in the dark side of life!

New relationships are formed and the principle characters get a little more than they expected from their endeavors. Trouble is the starting point for any new relationship is from a position of deceit and dishonesty and how can that work in a modern world where everyone knows everyone and life is little like living in a goldfish bowl?

A book that will appeal to young adults and teenagers but also for those that like to cringe a little!

The Full English by Mike Carden

March 12, 2012 in Books, Non Fiction, Travel

Travel Adventure - Cycling in the UKPedalling through England whilst trying to deal with a mid-life crisis and man-flu all at the same time – you just know this is the basis for a very funny and witty dialogue.
George East, the best-selling author of The Mill of the Flea series, says of the book:
… engaging, informative, entertaining and witty. This bloke makes good writing look as easy as riding a bike. I wish it was…

Funnily enough he even gives his bike a name, ‘Scott’ and an attitude, a bad one. On route from the Dorset coast to Northumbria the author indulges his passion for the history of England and engages with the locals,  meeting more than his fair share of eccentric, funny and friendly characters on the way. You will be able to see if your local landmark is included in the tally of castles and abbeys he visits as he passes through the ancient towns of England.

A Travel Adventure in the UK

Of the kind many aspire to, warm, well-observed, unpretentious, very funny… the kind of cycle tour we can all imagine ourselves taking,  at least when you are not suffering with the man-flu.

Book Reviews

In the ‘The Full English’, Carden (and his bike Scott) take the reader on a funny and fascinating journey from one end of England to the other. Never too weighty, but always interesting, Carden’s historical knowledge blends perfectly with his warmth and humour to provide a wonderfully human and informative read, which always hits the right note. I’m very much looking forward to his next adventure. Written by Megan Taylor on Amazon, a well known author in her own right.
