Today’s Chapter – Micro Trades

In a book which is essentially a collection of short stories, some stories will be just that little bit shorter. So short in fact, that they can be told with just two lines of dialogue. Hardly enough for a chapter, but put a lot of them together and, voila, you have what you are about […]

Only One Week Until Christmas

Just think – one week from now, millions of people will be waking up at an hour usually only experienced by market traders and BNI members, and all to enjoy the joy of opening presents. Well there’s no need to wait a whole week for a gift from me – you can open this one […]

Looking for a funny audiobook

Today’s title is straight and to the point, and is designed to entice the search engines to send people my way. I make no apology for that. Whilst writing this book may well have been a labour of love, it all falls to nothing if people aren’t actually aware that it exists, and in such […]

Let’s talk about Diamonds

Good afternoon Car Boot Fans. I’m writing this at 1.30pm on a Thursday, which means that I have already been up for 9 hours. No, I wasn’t doing a boot sale – on Thursdays I attend my weekly BNI meeting; surrounded by my network of local business people who have supported me in exchange for […]

The Prime Minister continues to negotiate with the EU – these are big deals that are worthy of scrutiny, patience and a keen analytical mind. The same really is not the case when you want to try and knock 50p off of the price of a used saucepan. But then some people just believe that […]

My Favourite Chapter

Every writer has a favourite chapter, and this one is mine. I’ve been told by a few readers that this is the one that made them laugh out loud. One reader awoke the passenger next to him on the train, and another had to explain his outburst to an airport departure lounge. I don’t know […]

Day 10 of your Car Boot Tales Advent Calendar

Car Boot Tales started as a series of Facebook posts several years ago. The stories were kept short because anyone browsing through Facebook first thing in the morning is looking to get all of their information and entertainment in 300 words or less – and that’s being generous. This is one of those original stories, […]
