Nanny Knows Best!

"Nanny Knows Best!" is the latest work from Shropshire writer Simon Fletcher and the first e-novel to be published by someone from the West Midlands.

A genial comedy, set in the dark early days of Thatcherism, the novel concerns the lives and loves of six graduates as they enter the 'real world'.

Designed to be read online, the book has many unusual features such as maps, diagrams, a cricket scorecard and even the notorious 'Gotcha' banner from "The Sun" newspaper.

To complete the work Simon was given a Creative Ambition Award by West Midlands Arts.

If the grandfather of this form of comic fiction is Laurence Sterne then the father of this book is certainly B.S.Johnson whose literary innovations enlivened the 1960s.

To find it online go to Simon's publisher's Pennine Pens at www.penninepens.co.uk where you can read a sample from the first chapter for free.The book costs 5 online and there is a CD version available at 10.
