Episode 27 – The Old Gold Special

Welcome to episode 27 of the slideintomyhand where I have tried something new and decided to interview someone and allow them to choose all the music, I hope you get as much enjoyment listening to it as we did recording it. The special guest is my friend Jay Stringer and he talks about his ace new book that is coming out on 24th July, Old Gold, along with music that is important to him and that has links to his writing. It’s a bit like Desert Island Discs but without the production values.

You can play the podcast by pressing play here:

Or by downloading from this link.

There’s quite a lot of information and links mentioned in the podcast so here they are for easy reference.

Jay can be found on twitter @JayStringer, whilst Eion Aaron Miller, the main character from the book, can be found @OldGoldNovel

The soundtrack that we mention is on spotify and can be listened to by clicking here (you will need to download Spotify for it to play), but please listen to my podcast first as there is a lot worth listening to.

For a taster of Jay’s writing you can get Faithless Street for the Kindle. It’s a collection of short stories based in the world of Old Gold and is available for free till 2nd July, or a measly 99c or 77p after then.

Old Gold is released on 24th July and can be pre-ordered from Amazon in paperback and for the Kindle, and in paperback at The Book Depository.

Finally, sign up to Jay’s newsletter by visiting his website where you will get lovely messages and joyful news straight into your inbox.

Thanks for listening and reading, please let me know how you thought it went as it was an interesting experiment and I would like to know what you thought of it.
