James Bond - The secret agent is now on Youtube

The blog is now up on Youtube with its first little exclusive clip taking from my mobile.

I attended the Whitlit festival in Whitstable on Friday May 13 this month and it was that day that Young Bond writer Steve Cole decided to reveal the title for his upcoming James Bond novel STRIKE LIGHTNING.

In the audience that day were many exited kids learning how to write a James Bond novel.  Steve Cole was an excellent teacher and was truly enthusiastic of teaching the kids. He was honestly like the famous Duracell rabbit that go's on and on without ever getting tired. As I told him that evening, if he would have been my teacher back in the day I am sure I would have learned a lot more in school. Ian Fleming Publications has really done a great choice in letting Steve Cole write the James Bond stories.

On the blogs YouTube channel I will upload interesting material from time to time. First upload is the presentation done by Steve Cole on May 13, 2016 where you can see him as the Duracell rabbit and also see how it went down when he presented his upcoming James Bond book STRIKE LIGHTNING.

Happy Birthday Ian Fleming!

Today we celebrate Ian Fleming's birthday. 

He was born on May 28th in 1908 and would have turned 108 years today.

in memoriam literary007 together with Maxus Movie walks will do a special Ian Fleming Tour in London.

Sadly I cant attend this great event since I am currently in Scotland and will spend the day visiting the Fettes Collage where, according to Ian Fleming, James Bond went to school. The same School that James Bond actor Sean Connery used to deliver milk to during his childhood in Edinburgh. 

Happy Birthday Mr Fleming!

HEADS YOU DIE and TRIGGER MORTIS paperback already on sale

The TRIGGER MORTIS paperback by Anthony Horowitz is not due for sale until May 19, in other words another 18 days, but I found out that the paperback can already be bought at London Heathrow terminal 4. As a matter of fact the James Bond fan that found out about this bought his copy as early as April 22. Almost one hole month before it is supposed to be released.

It would be interesting to see how well the book has sold so far.

Also the upcoming young James Bond novel HEADS YOU DIE by Steve Cole is being sold at Waterstones book store in  Hull UK already. The release date for this book is May 5th.

Since I myself work in the film business. I know that pre sales of DVD and Blu-rays are very common. The sellers just not care if the sell a book or film too early. The main reason for this is of course that they want to sell as many copies as possible but also that they can't stock items for too long so the items needs to hit the shelf's quickly because new items are coming in.

If you also have been able to buy these books early or any other James Bond releated book for that
matter please feel free to comment below.

If you like me, wish to have the books sent to you on release day you can buy TRIGGER MORTIS and HEADS YOU DIE on Amazon UK here.
