Kiss & Make Up

‘Kiss & Make Up’ ISBN 978-0-9932044-1-8
Payment by paypal.

It’s the early ’80s in Birmingham, and Carl – a nightclubbing, vodka-soaked, drug-fuelled, New Romantic schoolboy – is desperate for the love his manic-depressive mother has never been able to give.
It’s the ’90s in London, and Carl – now a make-up artist to the likes of Margaret Thatcher – is stuck on a merry-go-round of clubs, Class A’s and casual sex. A dark family secret has haunted him for years but he can’t quite put his finger on it.
It’s the new millennium, and now that his mom’s skeletons are out of the closet, now he’s finally sober, will they be able to kiss and make up?  
“Hilarious and heartening, you may need to retouch your mascara after reading.” Damian Barr

Payment by paypal.

The third collection of poems from Steve. Whether heʼs dissecting hypocrisy, raging against the nationʼs somnolent slide into seemingly endless war, asking us to stand in the shoes of the vulnerable and broken, or celebrating the power of love to transform our lives and bring beauty to our world, Steveʼs poems are a reminder of the necessity to recognise our common humanity. Moving, passionate, and joyous, this is a book to savour.

The Curious Mystery Of Miss Lydia Larkin And The Widow Marvell

‘The Curious Mystery Of….’
ISBN 978-0-9567786-0-4
Payment by paypal.

The first book to come rolling off the Ignite presses, and one with a very long title, ‘The Curious Mystery…’ looks at what may happen to gods and goddesses when people stop believing in them. Could they possibly find themselves living in a northern town a little like Bradford? And what, pray, might happen then?

Witty, clever, and imaginative. This book is typical Joolz. Well worth picking up!

note: when you’ve added the book to your shopping cart, go to ‘shop’ in the menu at the top of the page, and click on ‘cart and checkout’ in the drop-down menu. There it is!

Psst. Remember you can add an Ignite car sticker without increasing the cost of postage! It’s in the shop, under ‘car sticker’.
