Hi, hope all’s well. Just to let you know my novel, ‘The Broken Boots Guide to Astlavonia’ has just been published. It’s a black comedy about a debt-ridden divorcee who is sent to Astlavonia, a former soviet state, to write its first ever guidebook but discovers all disputes are settled with a knife.
If you’d like to read the first chapter and find out more, please visit www.nathanbraund.com.
Please help an unknown writer by telling your friends.
Thanks very much.
My entry for the Sci-Fi Short Story Competition is now complete. Wish me luck.

Please take the time to write me a review, as this forms part of the competition criteria, thanks.
Thank you for your very detailed comment. It's great to get another perspective on your own work.
I completely take on board your observations, some of which I was sort of aware of but it helps to hear it from a readers position. I feel like I've got a lot of learning to do with regard to my writing and all feedback is most welcome. You're right about the info dumping and the p.o.v. switching, something I will do my best to correct. Thanks again for your time, and don't worry I'll do some ignoring too when the criticism isn't spot on!
