/ Climbing Short Story Ė free, gratis, no charge.
My name is Mike Blood and Iíve got a 3000 word short story Iíd like to share with you. Itís a light-hearted piece that should only take 15 Ė 20 minutes of your time to read.
Last year my good friend Dave Hume and I published a book called The Bumper Book of Climbing Fun which has had some great reviews.
- Wonderful, irreverent, and hugely entertaining book... Brilliantly observed... quick-witted genius...
- It's a great book ... and had me sitting laughing away. The two authors have done a great job and I can't recommend it highly enough.
- The book, whilst seemingly never serious, is sharp, witty and really hits the nail on the head... All in all - a fun book, humorous and witty...
- One of the most gloriously funny and un-put-downable books I've read for a very long time (and not just a climbing one either)."
- What do you buy a climbing fan who already has all the gear he needs? THIS!"

So, the 1st part of your canvas has worked, I clicked on a premier post - quite a rare event!
You might attract some additional interest by inviting critique of your work. Whatever, send me a pdf and I'll take a look.
The Bumper Book of Climbing Fun is brilliant, it is the ideal Christmas present for a climber.
I will have a read if you send me a pdf. Thanks.
Please send me a pdf to read - thanks.
Are you the climber I have often seen soloing with enviable grace and ease around many of the climbs in Wilton 3.
If you write as well as you climb then yes -I'll take a copy. :)
Sounds good, I'll have a pdf copy to read, thanks.
