How about I just give you two of my favorite quotes instead?
“You are not your job. You’re not how much money you have in the bank. You’re not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet. You’re not your fucking khakis.”
“The things you own end up owning you.”

My name is Sarah Murphy from Open Road Media. Nice to meet you!
I saw on your blog that you’re a Martyn Waites fan, and so I’d like to give you a review copy of Born Under Punches, the novel Waites has described as the book he became a writer to write.
Switching continuously between 1984 and the present day, Martyn Waites’s gripping crime thriller follows the intertwined lives of a small group of characters, all linked in various ways to the miners’ strike: Tony Woodhouse, a professional footballer who can’t escape his shady past; Tommy Jobson, cruising the streets of Newcastle, violently collecting debts, about to be sucked into something far more dangerous; Mick Hutton, a striking miner, increasingly desperate to find ways to support his wife and growing family; Stephen Larkin, an idealistic young journalist, determined to expose the truth about the strike – as he sees it; Stephen’s sister, Louise, in love with Tony Woodhouse, stalked by a shadowy figure from her past. As the lives of these five characters unfold, it becomes clear the strike will have devastating repercussions – not only for those directly involved, but for future generations too.
Otto Penzler’s legendary Mysterious Press has recently released as an ebook, with brand new covers. If you’d like to review a copy, please let me know, and I will send you a link to the galley via Netgally, along with other materials for your post (book cover, video links, etc.) We’d love to hear what you think of “Born Under Punches”! We’d love to share your thoughts with our social media network.
