I was right.
And now, I'd like to suggest a couple of books to you, both of them written by this talented young gentleman. (I can call him this because I'm older than he is. So there. Nyah-nyah.)
So, anyway. I'd be ever-so-pleased if everyone who reads this would take a hop over to whichever Amazon site suits them best - US or UK, it doesn't matter - and see if you'd be interested in Oli's books. I'd be even more pleased if you actually bought them, of course.
They're bargain priced, and if you can appreciate a sometimes slightly unconventional style of writing, you might just find that you've grabbed a fantastic deal. I honestly think you'll be pleased, and there shall be no regrets.
'Apparently there are three popular ways to kill yourself in Hong Kong.
Throw yourself off a building.
Burn charcoal in a sealed room.'
Oli doesn't want to die. He wants to live. And he wants other people to live too, even if they don't.
All they have to do is follow his plan: Make dolls. Live in an art commune. Love him.
There's just one problem.
The one he wants to save...what if she's already dead?
[Note: The answer to the problem is time travel. Possibly.]

‘Come to Ljubljana. Stay with me forever.
Bermondsey, London: Building sites not building anything, ill-looking grass, five muggings in the same tunnel in the last month. Billy wants out. But how? All he has is a zine that no one reads, and his best friend Jay telling him the harsh reality of things.
But then…an e-mail. From Ljubljana, a place he can’t even spell. ‘Come stay with me forever,’ it tells him.
Weird, but okay, thinks Billy. Why not?
With Jay along for the ride, and others picked up along the way, Billy arrives in Ljubljana and quickly finds that things are a lot stranger than he could’ve possibly imagined. An art commune run by a man in a bear costume. A castle surrounded by continual snow, with ancient gods and 80s board games, famous writers and forbidden rooms.
And Daisy…his beautiful, unpredictable host.
Who is this woman? Why won’t she let him go outside? What’s inside the room at the top of the spiral stairs? And what happens when he can no longer write for her?
Available in Kindle format on Amazon US and UK.
'Cause that'd be great.
