Ex Soldier and Author. I was just sixteen years old when I joined the Army and stayed for fifteen years - half my life was given to this band of brothers but in truth it was my whole life. British Army on the Rampage is a seies of autobiographical novels that tell it how it was - warts and all. I wasn't in the SAS, I don't think I killed many people and if I did it was an accident. These are just the stories of a hell of a good time with real friends and comrades and the life we llived, the pranks we got up to and the friendships formed. I make no apologies for the fact that these memoirs are humourous because all in all I had one hell of an outrageously good time. And if war is a serious business at least we had a lot of laughs on the way...

Thoughts & Meanderings...Posted by Sean Connolly Sun, February 08, 2015 19:34:50

If I tell you that my heart and soul went into the writing of ‘Not My Father’s Apprentice’, the general response (I can almost hear it in Timbuctoo) would be: “But he is Heartless and Soul’s a kinda music innit?!" But heart and soul did go into it - it is simply the tale of my younger years and the problems I faced - something many ‘squaddies’ can identify with - and if the subject is serious there are quite a few laughs along the way - bit like being a Soldier really…

So find out more and get the E-books which continue to sell well. Click HERE. Although its early days, the feedback is great. With that said, I want to persuade, no beg readers to leave a review on Amazon. A task which is proving harder than something that’s really hard - if you see what I mean! But good reviews help push the books up the charts and that’s what we want because…

(DRUM ROLL…) The paperback is being published and is due for release in May. A fantastic launch is planned in Southport and all shall be welcome (especially those who have written good reviews - jus' sayin'). Details to follow…!

The website is looking good and appears to be attracting some unusual viewer stats. At last count, the U.S.A made up 60% of the visitors to the site. Australia, China, Egypt and United Arab Emirates all appearing on the score sheet - didn’t know Australians could read mind! Anyway you’ll all be able to buy the paperback from the website at a special discount though I’m not sure I can be bothered to translate it into Chinese - on the other hand there are a lot of them - ok I’ll think about it!

And finally, I would like to say ‘thank you’ to everyone who has purchased any and all my books. I hope you will all be purchasing the new paperback… I’ll have the names of those who don’t!!!

And once again - thanks for your continued support.
