Irony on rye to go

Mary Martin posts this heartwarming tale of Subway franchisees fighting the approval given for plans to open an abbatoir in the same building as their sandwich shop. On the grounds, lest it not be obvious, that having such a thing out the back would stop people coming in and buying bits of dead animal for lunch. Wouldn't that be a shame...

Due to a glitch in amazon.uk’s system, I believe I’ve written the only crime thriller in the UK that doesn’t appear on amazon.co.uk. My publisher’s many other titles are listed, and my book can be ordered from all other uk online suppliers, as well as amazon.com. Amazon.uk refuse to acknowledge their technical error.
I’m an insignificant individual, powerless to influence this huge corporation, but their indifference has incensed me. I’m attempting to battle amazon.uk’s virtual monopoly of the UK online book market by asking readers to order my inexpensive paperback through other online suppliers.
If you would be kind enough to consider supporting my campaign against a faceless corporation, please check out my blog for details of Cut Short by Leigh Russell.
