Yorkshire Post

March 19th sees the long-awaited publication of Frank's Wild Years.  For its first five days out in the big bad world, publisher Caffeine Nights will be offering the novel as a free e-book on Amazon - a not to be repeated offer. In book form, Frank's Wild Years is available from Amazon from the 19th. It can also be ordered from Waterstones Online as well as at selected Waterstones stores as part of the spring/summer book tour.

Here's the line-up for launch week:

Monday 19th March - Publication day.

Wednesday 21st March - Launch event at Waterstones, Sheffield - 6.30-7.30pm. I'll be reading from the book, answering questions, signing copies, and dishing out free booze. All welcome.

Friday 23rd March - Interview with Burnsy on Radio Humberside around 11.30am.

Saturday 24th March - Signing at Waterstones, Grimsby - 11.00am -12.00am.

For a full rundown of events, there's a full list elsewhere on the blog.

This has been a long time coming - happy reading!


  1. Many, many congratulations, Nick, on the publication of your novel. You've waited a long time for this, but the wait will be worth it. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy and start reading. I hope it shoots straight to the top of the best-seller list!

  2. Thanks Karen, very much appreciated. If it gets to stand on a ladder and see the best seller list over the garden fence, I'll be happy!

  3. Went to the launch at Waterstones in Sheffield Nick, I can't wait to read the book. I spent several years as a reporter on the Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph and remember Barton and the many stories that came out of the town very fondly. All the best

  4. Thanks for coming, do let me know what you think of the book.

    Cheers, Nick
