expect delays

roadworks sign

I was slightly taken aback by the road sign in the photo.

On the one hand it’s eminently logical: if the road is to be closed for seven weeks, there probably will be delays.

On the other hand, the advice to “consider alternative route” seems to have been added as an afterthought – as if we all have so much time on our hands that we could realistically contemplate sitting in our cars waiting for seven weeks watching while the contractors dig holes and fill them in.

Of course, if anyone isn’t going to seek an alternative route, they might want something to read while they wait. Coincidentally, five of my books are free to download from Amazon at the moment.

The books will be free until Wednesday 20th, and then probably not again for a very long time. If you do download any of them and enjoy them, I’d really appreciate it if you left a review. (If you don’t enjoy them, I’d rather you said nothing!)

You can find them all via my Amazon author’s page.
