New Book About Growing Up in Houghton Regis - George Jackson

Dear Sir,

I'd like to thank everyone at News Desk for sharing my post and to readers who bought 'Luton Town FC - A Season by Season History 1885-2018' which I told you about earlier in the year. All royalties are being devoted to Prostate Cancer UK and are building up nicely. Thank you all.

Two more of my books are now available on Amazon and again all royalties will go to good causes.

Sample: Content page of 'My First Four Lives'

'My First Four Lives' is an autobiography covering the first 35 years of my life which spanned the 1940s -1970s. It includes growing up in Houghton Regis, life at the School on the Green and at Dunstable Grammar, working for the Meteorological Office at Dunstable and elsewhere and eventually my life as a police officer in Huntingdonshire and West Wales. £8.99.

There are detailed descriptions of Houghton Regis and its characters as I knew them and some unique photographs.

Included in the second part of the book I reveal the guilty secret behind the arrest of the Phantom Thumper, the hilarious events following the death of Big Bertha in the back seat of a mini and my famous Man bites Dog case.

My latest book 'Playing With Words & Other Things' is nothing but a bit of fun - a pick 'n' mix of prose, poems, puns, posers, parodies and one-liners with hopefully a laugh or at least a groan on every page. £5.99 (Kindle £4.99).

Sample: Playing with words & Other Things

All three books are available exclusively on Amazon in paperback and digital format, are ideal for Christmas stockings and will help me support Prostate Cancer UK, a disease that has affected a number of my friends.

Don't forget that on Amazon, if you click on the book image, then click 'see inside', you can read the first few pages free and see what you're getting. Hope you will enjoy.
