ARMY NOVELS IS GIVING
I am proud to
announce that on Thursday 10th March 2016, I will be presenting two cheques to
my charity, The Royal British Legion, Byng House in Southport.
One of the cheques
is from the proceeds of my books which you have bought over the past few months
and the second is for the monies raised from the poppy pin badges I have sold at
my book signings on behalf of Byng House.
I am also pleased
to announce Byng House has given me kind permission to host the presentation
during their coffee morning at 11a.m and who knows, we may be able to raise
some more money for our charity.
My father, who is a
Burma Veteran, will be attending. He is 90 years old and what is really cool is
that he was one of the party who opened Byng House over 30 years ago. During my
time in the British Army my dad was the Chairman of the Southport Branch of the
Royal British Legion - A post he held
for thirty years.
I’ll also be doing
a book signing and a reading and as a special treat British Broadcasting Services
(B.F.B.S) will be interviewing me after this. Oh and I shall be announcing the publication
details of my new book, ‘Fighting the Red Menace’.
Byng House is a
great charity to support and they need every penny to help our forces and ex
Thank you for your
continued support. I look forward to seeing you all.
`FIGHTING THE RED
In 1979 Sean
Connolly was thrown into a new drinking club called the North Atlantic Treaty
Organisation (N.A.T.O). He didn’t have a clue what this meant but he knew it
sounded good. N.A.T.O, and of course a green army bus, were to take the author
on an amazing and life changing journey which would transform his cloudy vision
of what soldiering was all about. This was a tour of what dreams were made
West Germany was more about brains than brawn.
It was about intellect, intelligence, espionage and nerves of steel. These were
the qualities that were simply lacking in the new artilleryman who was about to
be was posted to a town he couldn’t even spell let alone say.
The soldiers of
forty-field Regiment Royal Artillery had to learn the rules of a new game and
they had to learn it fast. The Warsaw Pact was their new enemy. It was an enemy
that was spearheaded by one of the most feared countries in the world. Russia.
Fighting the Red
Menace exudes mystery, mayhem and menace. The story is one of intrigue, humour,
passion and wrong doings. In his quest to become the best soldier in the
regiment, the author stumbles across a traitor. His biggest fight isn’t with
the Warsaw Pact, but whether or not he should blow the lid on the treacherous
actions of a fellow British Soldier.
