Guest Author, Geoff le Pard: Locations – My Father and Other Liars Blog Tour

My second guest post, this time over at Sue Vincent’s blog, The Daily Echo. I’m talking about the difficulty of dealing with multiple locations in your books, especially those you have never visited.

It is with pleasure that I hand the blog over today to that inimitable literary Red-Beard,  Geoff le Pard, whose new book,  My Father and Other Liars, was released in paperback and for Kindle earlier this year. You can read the first two chapters of the book by clicking here. Details of further guest appearances for the Blog Tour can be found here.

“An action-packed and intricate blend of religious nuttery, thriller and romantic novel.”

My Father and Other Liars (MFOL) started its life one bleak frozen December day in Union Square San Francisco. I stood, stomping my feet to keep out the chill while I waited for my family to emerge from Macy’s.

  1. I’m enjoying this tour Geoff, you’ve thought of am interesting selection of topics, and of course, ones which other authors face too.

In another book, I didn’t have the A to Z, so I looked up on Google, OK the name was right. Later on, the author used a different spelling for one street, for some reason I checked that too instead of just changing it. That was correct as well! Aaaagh!

      I was just saying to someone else I was writing a contemporary story, describing a real building only to find, When I just happened to be passing that it looks like they are pulling it down. Grrrr. They need to consult more widely.
