For Sale, fair booth: Book signing by local author John Hardy
John Hardy will be selling signed copies of his books at the Royal British Legion Easter fair on Saturday 6th April 10-2 at Restaurante Trapiche.
He will have copies of the recently published book ‘Driven by Conflict’, a collection of stories about people involved in conflicts of many and various kinds, from the domestic to the international. Some of the stories are bleak, as stories of war and hostilities often are, whilst others are much lighter and even of a humorous nature. Many of them are romances and love stories. The conflicts and wars which are behind the stories range in time from 1000 BC up until the present day. They take place mainly in Europe and the Middle East and the majority are events that involve Great Britain, Spain and Israel, and the hostilities that they were involved in.
All his other books will also be available, including books of short stories of crime and mystery, some set in the Axarquía. Some of these have been translated into Spanish and German.
For more information on all his books, visit www.johnhardybooks.com or
