Electricity: a podcasted novel by myke bartlett
Aston Somerfield, casual smoker and part-time alcoholic, has come to London to find himself. He knows who he's looking for, he's seen him on the cover of the NME. Drawn across oceans by fame and fate, Aston is keeping his diary empty to make sure he's available. Won't commit to anything until it's everything.
London, however, has other ideas.
When a virtual stranger calls Aston a few hours before his death, fate catches up with him, derailing his barely-made plans. Amid a hundred boozy evenings and romantic deadends, a mystery unfurls.
Equally assisted and hindered by tremulous accountant Tom Hensley and dedicated loafer Steven Black, Aston uncovers a different London, one of murder, ghosts, dangerous emails and the second big bang.
As chaotic and random as the city it inhabits, Electricity gradually evolves into a mystery bigger than the universe itself. Being of a somewhat useless persuasion, Aston does his best to ignore it.

Electricity on Paper! UPDATED
Electricity is now available to purchase at http://stores.lulu.com/mykebartlett
The first print run will be a fairly limited affair, so make sure to check back here later in the week if you'd like to get your hands on a copy.
If any of you can find it in your hearts to dash off another review, you should be able to leave one at the above address (here it is again: http://stores.lulu.com/mykebartlett).
It's worth mentioning that Electricity is being launched to test the water for a future launch of How to Disappear Completely, so your support will be much appreciated. Thanks again to all of you who've been in touch to let me know how much you enjoyed Electricity - it really means a lot!
Tell all your friends!
ps. If there's a decent enough response to Electricity, you can expect to see a brand new Salmon & Dusk novella made available in the same fashion before Christmas!

Electricity on paper: many congratulations - and celebrations even - as Cliff Richard might say if he were hip enough to be following your adventures.
