Taking A Novel To New Heights!


The Tokyo Express has proved popular with Amazon readers and quite a few are saying how it has qualities for a film – well that would be wonderful if it ever happened. It is a story that is little told in film or books and gives another spin on the very popular WW2 theme. At the weekend I watched the film “Fury”, starring and directed by Brad Pitt, which gave the most unusual angle yet, that of life inside a tank while at war. It was compelling stuff, albeit gruesome at times. My book of course tells the story when the Americans arrived after Japan surrenders and the sudden change for good this brought to the Japanese, especially the women, many of whom wrote love letters to General MacArthur who ruled the interim government. My story is fictional but based on facts.

Here is what two of the latest new 5-star reviewers on The Tokyo Express say about the book:

“It is near flawless in its writing, deeply-researched in its scale and scope, beautifully presented and highly enjoyable. I’m surprised it hasn’t been picked up by a major publisher.” CA Webster.

“The writer weaves a bi-cultural and cross-generational tale with panache. The plot comes to a satisfying and unexpected resolution, terrific writing.” Avid Cyclist

Several other readers have said it is crying out to be a film. I wonder if it is possible for a self-published book to come into the hands of a film producer or do all books to reach such a Holy Grail have to be vetted by agents and major pundits first? What a boost to the indie book world if it were to happen! So I shall experiment on this front and report back.

Any film directors out there, please read the reviews so far and get in touch for a copy – same goes to any magazine or newspaper journalist! As you can see, the book is already a hit with Wonder Woman!

Meanwhile, you can read the reviews of my book here in full here!
