How To Save The World In Twenty Tweets... (Part Two)

A few brief snippets from the first 'How To Save The World' book...


From time to time on twitter I’ve been tweeting short quotes from my book 'How To Save TheWorld: An Alien Comedy', and a few weeks ago I collected the first batch of these quotes together in a post on this blog called How To Save The World In Twenty Tweets…(Part One).

As I’m now over two thirds of the way through tweeting these quotes on twitter, I therefore thought it would be a good time to collect together the next batch of seven tweets in the series.

So here they are…

8) Sadly the Femlings hadn’t been as foolish as the Empire and there was no two metre exhaust shaft handily located on their planet.  #HTSTW

9) “Aye. Ar … I mean, like, nar!  No way!  I don’t mean ‘aye’ as in go ahead, mess with my bum.  I mean ‘aye’ as in that’s what aliens do.”  #HTSTW

10) “Carrots have still got a fairly decent standard of living, like.  You’d get to just lie about all day, chilling out … no stresses…”  #HTSTW

11) “I seriously wouldn’t do anything with a non-single lass in any circumstances. She might turn out to be a serial relationshipist.”  #HTSTW

12) Play-Doh was originally invented as a wallpaper cleaner until some clever dude thought, ‘Hmm, this would make a really cool toy.’  #HTSTW

13) I’m not in the mood for chicken.” He then noticed the sign, ‘Tonight: bikini mud wrestling.’  “Actually, aye … chicken sounds good.”  #HTSTW

14) “Earth lasses totally hate getting bombed out, like.  She’ll definitely prefer to think I’m a mental freak rather than feel rejected.”  #HTSTW

As I mentioned in part one, there were a lot of quotes from How To Save The World which I really loved but which unfortunately I couldn’t include in a tweet due to the 140 character limit which twitter place on tweets.  But given the size limitations, I think that the quotes above give a brief general flavour of the style of the book without giving away too much of the plot.

Obviously as an author the whole point of giving people a flavour of your book is because you hope people will want to read more, so if anyone would like to check out more of the 'How To Save The World' saga, then you can download the first three chapters for free from Amazon or purchase the full book from the following links:
