Humphrey’s Book is Published!

It’s awfully good this Kindle whatsit! Daphne got me to scribble down the little adventure we had in coming to Great Snoring, and what ho! One of the fellows in the youth club fiddled about for a bit on his computer and the whole thing is suddenly up and running!

Very whizz bang this digital book thingie! Anyway, once I got going, the adventure turned out to be a full length short story–tells all about how we both met Major Wildebeest and overcame a wild beast of the farmyard sort (not to mention a rather menacing Archdeacon) to wangle the job and get ourselves ensconced in our rather splendid vicarage.

So tootle over here and make the purchase if you will. It’s only $2.99 Good value I’d say! Every purchase helps me and Daff a bit, and helps make the Yuletide bright if you know what I mean.

If you don’t have Kindle or any of those other new fangled reader gadgets, (or if you want to save a dollar) you can just pop down to the bottom of this post and click on ‘Buy Now’ and purchase it as a Word file to download and read on your computer for just $1.99.

If you like the short story, let me know…we’ve had quite a few adventures here in Great Snoring. Village life is not  so dull as you might think! If you like this one I might just find the time to write a few more, and oh, by the way, if you do happen to like the story be a good bug and take a moment to write a review on the Amazon website.  There’s a good chap — or chapette!

Thanks awfully.  Must dash. Seems there’s a bit of a do in the Rectory kitchen. I expect Mefistofele has presented Daphne with another half eaten dead mouse. Horrid cat.

    Hurrah! It’s on my Kindle whats-it waiting to be enjoyed. Thanks, Vicar! (Thanks, Father!)

    Thank you Father. I’m so glad you’ve published it! I’ll go right away to Amazon and purchase it (, so I’m afraid it’ll take a long time for you to get your share of the price).

    Keep them coming, please.

    Truly an enjoyable read! Thank you, Father… and to echo what was said above, keep ‘em coming!

    Great story–I can’t wait to read more!

    • Fr. Dwight Longenecker

      Thanks! Tell others. The book needs to be spread by word of mouth…

    Please do tell, Father L, where do you get the photos for all your alter-egos? They are wonderful!

    • Fr. Dwight Longenecker

      sometimes I see the pictures and I immediately think of the alter ego. This was the case with Caitlin and the Vicar. Other tiimes I have the idea for an alter ego and go looking for a picture.

    Just finished it and I have one complaint: TOO SHORT! Can’t wait for more.
    One suggestion, I may need a glossary. I speak this language, but don’t even know how to look up some of the bits. Love it! Thanks, Father

    • Fr. Dwight Longenecker

      Thanks! Tell you friends please! Some of the lingo is intentionally obscure just for fun. I’ve tried to write it in such a way though that most people can figure it out from the context.
