World cup fever is upon us!
Well, as an Englishman, perhaps fever is not exactly the word that springs to mind, more appropriate is the word angst!
Every time we build up our hopes only to have them dashed against the wall and disintegrate into the ether in puff of inevitability – generally in a penalty shoot out against Germany.
This time I am not holding out a lot of hope, instead I will watch and cheer and just enjoy the games without expectation. Fingers will be crossed of course, but I will keep hold of reality. Two group games to go, we need to win them both……yeah, right!
Will I go and join my fellow cynics down at the pub? Perhaps, but I don’t like crying into my beer, it waters it down too much.
Which brings me to my point; as long as England remain in the cup, my book, Banker’s Draft, will be free to download from Smashwords. Free, gratis and for nothing – possibly the bargain of the year!
Don’t despair if you only use amazon, it’s only $1.29 or 77p, again for the duration.
If you enjoy it, then please leave a review, it would make this author very happy.
