Duke Street Kings

My second novel is off press and ready for market. That only took a dozen years. Of interest to BCBers will be a scene set in a pub in which my characters play Slider's travel North America via song lyrics game: players move around a map between adjacent states & provinces referencing place names. You've probably already noted that I lifted the title from Springsteen's 'Backstreets.' More details and information are available on my blog: meGeoff.blogspot.ca.

So if I write a novel using Slider's game am I plagiarising?

But well done on gettiing the new book sorted out.
I kept thinking "swim as far as you can, swim as far as you can".

Thank you. Can't tell you if sales are abysmal or just dismal.

I missed this news last year. Yes it has been a few years since we met and talked about it outside The Kings Head. I will look it up on Amazon etc.
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.
