Getting Involved

Is this your reaction to injustice?

If you’re anything like me you’re constantly hearing about situations that make you mad. The news is full of injustices and bad behaviour. The kind of things that make you want to do something about them.

If you’re anything like me, you spend a few minutes being indignant then fail to follow through with anything concrete. Oh, now and again I might sign a petition but only if it’s emailed to me and all I have to do is click on the link.

Actually doing something would involve time and money and might also include personal risk. Most of us don’t feel that we’re in a position to commit to that extent, we have other priorities that take precedence. We’ve got work to do, families to feed, a living to earn, children to play with, television to watch, books to read.

Don’t get me wrong, none of this is unreasonable. Especially the bit about books.

I’ve recently begin to write the fourth Jenny Parker novel.

The third, Limited Liability, is being published in May so you haven’t much time to read Due Diligence and Proceeds of Crime before it is. The reasons I’m committed to a fourth book include

people asking me for more

the nice things they say about the first two

and because there’s alot more injustice in the world for Jenny to get her teeth into.

You see, Jenny throws herself into things in a way that I can’t. She goes for broke, as they say. Her reward is all manner of problems and difficulties but she never gives up. I like that in her.
