Addictive New Page-turner 'The Boys Of Summer'!
Hey, nice folks!
My debut novel (no, shush; it's actually excellent!) is available now and has been selling bucketloads and getting ridiculous reviews. If you like unpredictable, heartfelt, coming-of-age, suspense and just a damn good page turner; you will love every second of this, or your money back*

Beautiful and ugly, all at once. July 24, 2012
By Norma Desmond
"I've just finished this book, and I feel like I've been punched in the gut and left for dead. In the best possible way. You think you know where it's going, you think you know what's coming, but you don't. You just... don't. Mr. West spins a sense of unease from the opening pages, and builds it and builds it into a tangible dread and an ending so horrible and real, I may well have nightmares. My heart raced through the entire last of the story, and I could not put it down. Reminiscent, in my mind, of Stephen King at his best; so vivid, it drags you right in.
It's not all despair and darkness, though; woven throughout is the engaging and gorgeously illuminated story of narrator Richie South's coming of age with the girl next door. These dreamlike moments interlock with the rest to make young Richard a fully relatable person, rather than a character in a novel.
The Limerick slang may take a bit of getting used to, but it's well worth the effort (and by effort, I mean taking ten seconds to google "Irish slang: (word)." Believe you me, I'm not one for having to work too hard). I look forward to many more tales from this excellent author. He's pure rapid, shur."
Was that shameless enough?
Loving the forum, btw. Some real fiction finds here so far.
