Pat Mills has just announced that he is giving away part 1 of his new book "Kiss My Axe! Sláine The Warped Warrior: The Secret History", all you need to do to receive this is to have purchased a copy of "Goodnight, John Boy" or you will get this when you buy a copy.

Here's part of the email he sent out via his Millsverse website

Greetings from the Red Branch!

I've just finished Part One of Kiss My Axe! Sláine The Warped Warrior: The Secret History, and I'm giving it away for free to everyone who buys (or has already bought) a copy of Goodnight, John-boy.

You guys get a heads up before everyone else – by virtue of being on my mailing list!

All you have to do is send me your proof of purchase: a copy of the receipt – or if you don't have it any more, a pic of you with the paperback or ebook is fine.

And I'll send you a download link. Simple as that.

By the way, I absolutely love Alex Ronald's Kiss My Axe cover, I think it's even better than his Be Pure! Be Vigilant! Behave! Quite strange to have my own eyes staring out at me ...

Below is a bit more info about what you can find in Part One: Sláine The Wanderer, but first just let me say that the complete book is quite a way off: I'm backed up with projects and unlikely to get started on Parts Two, Three & Four until much later in the year. So it'll probably be early 2019 before Kiss My Axe - the complete works, is published.

The worst thing about these people is that they don't even work for the charity they are getting you sign up for, they are employed by an outsourcing company that approaches the charities & for a percentage of the donations or a set fee they employ the chuggers to sign people up on the charities behalf collecting for 3or4 different charities in different areas a week. I saw an advert for people to do this & they were offering a salary of between £14,000-£18,000 a year to do this. I don't condone them for doing this for a living  as it can be seen in the same lines as the person on the street trying to get you to sign up to the AA, Sky or double glazing, it's the companies that are making a living from taking money away from the charities
