The Sundial Salesman - Book cover`This is a life where you have to take what you can when you can while you can - because you can't take it with you.'

Ealing Broadway. 42 and bankrupt, the consequence of highly dysfunctional parents who insist he's adopted.

`Life's a balance of one’s expectations and the budget available,' he says and he was on a pretty tight budget both financially and emotionally already. `My economic "outlook" must not look good. I’d spent most of my money on booze, drugs and Eastern European prostitutes. Why? Well, for one thing, Eastern European prostitutes are a lot better educated than the local prostitutes from the West...'

Caught in a hilarious web of mistaken identity, adultery & blackmail that slowly unravels with disastrous consequences, The Sundial Salesman is the gritty, autobiographical account of morally vague Ealing Broadway and his sex-depraved boss, the scheming, Mason Shimansky, CEO of one of the most powerful companies in the world and whom Broadway attempts extorting.
Only Shimansky has other plans for him.

`I need a reason to leave my wife,' Shimansky tells him.
`Won't you wife be annoyed?' Boradways asks.
`Probably, no doubt, she usually is,' Shimansky said.
`That's very complicated, even worse, what if she forgives you - what then...?' Broadway wonders as Shimansky outlined his plan.

Can Broadway help prevent a young woman's death and redeem his own seamy existence? All just a normal day in America’s downtown forgotten wasteland, Tokyo – a lot like Chinatown, only Japanese. If you enjoyed reading Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest and Bukowski’s Post Office, while there’s no suggestion there were any actual children involved in the above literary mutation, you no doubt will enjoy reading the savvy, punchy prose of The Sundial Salesman...!

Quick Tips for Authors

Proofreading Trick

One way to proofread your manuscript is to read it aloud. It may sound strange, but it works. Reading aloud, especially to another person, makes us focus on each word individually. This is a good way to find and clean up those missing or extra of's, the's, and a's.
