I'M NOT PAYING GERALD HAWKSLEY FOR HIS RUBBISH ILLUSTRATIONS

Well, it looks like Mr Hawksley escaped from the castle basement, where he has been banished to by Amazon, and sneaked in here and put the prices up again. Deluded fool!

But he has been doing illustrations for my new Christmas ebook.
I instructed him to try and do pictures that are like the old engravings you see in classic Christmas books (like in those old books by that chap Dickens).
As you can see, he failed miserably.

I am, of course, refusing to pay him. Not that I could afford to, anyway, as I am only charging 99 cents for my books.

I'll put up a link for my new Christmas ebook when Amazon get round to putting it on their site. Don't hold your breath, though, as they seem to be preoccupied with More Important Things.

Here is one of the illustrations:

(By the way, if any of you good folk are considering Christmas purchases from Amazon.com, if you do so via the Amazon links on this blog a small percentage of the purchase price will go to Mr Hawksley, at no cost to you. There is no incentive for you to do this.)
