Yes, it’s Another Book

I’ve been toying with the idea of cranking this blog back into life again for a while. For presumably obvious reasons, I’ve been finding Twitter less and less appealing these days, Bluesky is still a bit parochial and Threads is weird because the profiles there are locked into Instagram, so I’m known as BeardyJon and I’m not sure I really like that. MAKE SURE YOUR HANDLES ARE CONSISTENT THROUGHOUT SOCIAL MEDIA say the marketing gurus, and I’m sure they’re right. But some other git had nabbed jonpinnock on Insta by the time I got there, so I’m stuck with the stupid Beardy one.

Of the long form alternatives, Medium seems to be a bit meh and Substack is apparently crawling with Nazis, and there is also the long-term risk on all these places of not retaining control of your content. So I might try doing stuff back here for a while and see if anyone notices.


I have a new book out next week. It’s called THE CODE OF THE VAVASORS and it’s Book Six in the Mathematical Mystery series. You don’t have to have read the first five books in order to enjoy it, but it helps a bit. Also, I earn more royalties if you buy all the books in the series, so it’s a win all round. However, if you do insist in diving in part way through, there’s always Archiepyedia to help out. I’m stupidly proud of Archiepyedia, although no-one whatsoever has ever commented on it, so I’m assuming that no-one else shares my opinion. Suffice to say, if you enjoyed Wickhampedia (and I think lots of people did), you’ll enjoy this one too.

Regular readers of this blog may have been surprised by the fact that I’m talking about Book Six here because I’ve been so lax about updating this place that I completely overlooked to mention Book Five, LAST CHANCE IN VEGAS, at all. Which is a pity, because it’s one of my favourites. Then again, like my kids, I love them all equally. Most of the time, anyway.

I’ll say a bit more about THE CODE OF THE VAVASORS when it gets published next week, but for now here’s a picture of a pile of books. Beautiful, aren’t they?

    Congratulations Jonathan.
    Six months, hopefully, until I have more time for reading.
    Although I wont need inspiration for my sermons then.
