AGAINST THE GRAIN
Fourty Blogs from Big Dave
Over the years weve received many offers and requests through our website kokyprik.com for Big Dave to do a bio style novel but the book is practically all ready in existence.
While blogging about his shady and sometimes controversial history Dave‟s short stories have received well in excess of half a million reads mostly via our website.
These short to medium length stories are that book.
The kokyprik.com team have run through over 150 blogs published by Big Dave over the last 5 years (May 2006 to May 2011) and selected 40 of the best.
Each blog has been re-edited and tweaked.
Some of the blogs needed tidying up or had new detail added.
Finally we have compiled them in to one handy pdf including a few pictures.
Kokyprik is proud to present – Against The Grain.
