Many months after it was promised, my website finally has samples available for reading, downloading, and even printing, at http://www.johnsoanes.co.uk/samples.htm . Rather embarrassed about the delays, but I’d be genuinely interested in your comments on the stuff that’s there – there are the opening chapters from my first novel, a short story, and a non-fiction journalistic piece, so I like to think there’s something for everyone. Let me know what you make of it.
And I may soon be able to share a link to a bit of stand-up I did the other day which was filmed for possible online streaming (ooh, get me with the techie jargon; shame I’m not entirely sure that’s the right term, but still). But I’m not sure at this point whether it will be available online. Should that be the case, though, I’ll be sure to let you know (or, as the more astute amongst you will translate that phrase, ‘to continue with my egocentric and self-absorbed policy of wanton hype and self-promotion’).
