That’s what Bandersnatch says. He reviewed Kök & Tvätt – Through Scandinavia on a Tandem at Amazon.co.uk and gave it five stars. Thanks. Why don’t you do the same? We could generate the Bandwagon effect.
We still await the first online review of No Room at the Moustache and Mullet. Someone must have finished it by now! Give it a good review and I’ll even reward you with a free paperback copy of K&T. Now there’s an offer you can’t escape!
Just to let you know that the organisation behind the Eurovelo network of long-distance cycle routes has launched a new website. It’s mainly aimed at people involved in developing and maintaining the routes, but it has an interesting little news section here:
Surströmming books, in conjunction with Futile Enterprises, is pleased to announce the publication of the sequel to Kök & Tvätt – Through Scandinavia on a Tandem.
No Room at the Moustache and Mullet is now live on Amazon for Kindle and other eReaders, priced at £3.60.
For this modest outlay you will receive many pages of painstakingly crafted prose, four carefully-drawn maps by Kathryn, some holiday photographs from both of us and a cover made of cut-out bits of paper. There probably isn’t another offer anywhere like it on the interweb.
So get yourselves over there now: buy, buy, buy! Read, read, read! Laugh, laugh, laugh! Tell all your friends, tell all your friends, tell all your friends!
WIN FREE COPIES OF THE PAPERBACK EDITION OF K&T
Your Amazon reviews are really important – good reviews drive sales and you owe it to your fellow human beings to encourage them to buy No Room at the Moustache and Mullet. So for the first ten people to post a 4* or 5* review of Moustache and Mullet at Amazon, I will send a free copy of the paperback edition of Kök & Tvätt – Through Scandinavia on a Tandem for you to treasure, give to someone else or to use to wedge the door open. All you need to do is post your review, contact me with your postal details via the email address on the Moustache and Mullet website and I will do the rest.
Meanwhile, we really hope you enjoy the new book. Readers currently enjoying a British winter may like to know it includes accounts of a boiling hot Italian summer. Wrap up well.

“No Room at the Moustache and Mullet”, in case you had forgotten, is the title of the sequel to Kök & Tvätt – Through Scandinavia on a Tandem and preparation for publication is coming to a slow but definite conclusion. Yes, I know I’ve been saying this for a year now but really, it is. Look! Here’s Kathryn’s “cover” art for the Kindle edition. Most publishers still think of Kindle editions as electronic versions of the paperback and they stick with the same cover. We think -why clutter it up with the title and author? You get all that info from the Amazon website. All you want is a little pic to cheer everyone up! The setting is a pub, in deepest Czech Republic, as the autumn evening is drawing in and we have nowhere to stay:
“When we opened the door, the handful of locals looked up and gave us the sullen stare. I knew as I looked at their Czech-style haircuts and face fungus what the name of the pub must be. We were in The Moustache and Mullet.”
Readers in the US may like to know that Kök & Tvätt -Through Scandinavia on a Tandem can now be borrowed from the Amazon Kindle Owners’ Library. Let’s hope Amazon set up a similar service in the UK and Europe soon.
The book peaked at no. 4,116 in the Kindle charts this week, the best since July. With Kindle expected to be one of the biggest sellers this Christmas, I have high hopes of a post-festive surge in sales.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
..to anyone hanging on for volume 2. Poor Kathryn got ill at the crucial moment, when she was meant to be drawing maps and designing a cover. All her fault. I’ll whip her out of her sick bed and put her to work.
On the plus side, I’ve brightened up the book with a few photographs. It’ll be interesting to see how they reproduce on Kindle.
Have a Merry Christmas!
