New novel for former Beds County Councillor
A Leighton writer is fulfilling his dream of becoming a successful published author as he endeavours to make his second novel live up to his first exciting and page-turning read.
Former Beds County Councillor Tony Drury, of Redwood Glade, is pleased to announce The Deal will be released on Wednesday, October 17.
Although slightly nervous about the release of his new book, Tony is looking forward to hearing what people think about his story.
He said: “I like to write page-turners so people get involved in the story.
“People like reading about real life and to recognise themselves in the book, which is nice if they do.”
Well known for his financial and political books, The Deal is a romantic thriller set in The City during the recession and follows the story of corporate financier Oliver Chatham who is under pressure to raise £2million for a publishing company.
Back in 2006 Tony was a City corporate financier, but sold his business with the dream of becoming a published novelist. However during the recession the company who had promised to turn his dream into a reality went into liquidation.
The lucky Leighton man was not down and out for long though, as he soon became chairman of a corporate finance house and a year later formed his own publishing house, City Fiction.
Tony added: “We are in the middle of a recession and people’s lives are difficult, but if I can give someone a bit of pleasure by giving them a good story then that would make me happy.”
The Deal will be available from Book Delight, High Street Mews, Leighton, and Cottage Stores, Plantation Road, Leighton, and Amazon.
It follows the popularity of his first novel Megan’s Game and Tony has written extensively over the years. His third novel Cholesterol will be published by City Fiction in spring 2013.
