LOCAL AUTHOR CONTRIBUTES PROCEEDS FROM BOOK SALES TOWARD NEW COMMUNITY CENTRE.
Nic Taylor, local author is to donate a parentage of the revenues from the sale of his new book “A Plague of Dissent” toward the build costs of a community use building at the Plymstock Albion Oaks Rugby club, to replace the existing ram shackled building presently used.
A Plague of Dissent is a fast paced thriller, bursting with political intrigue and corruption. It paints a picture of the UK, where media companies hack into personnel communications at will, in search of their next headline. Of politicians lining their pockets with falsified expense claims and crooked practices operate within the police force. Where government contracts can be bought and sold by those that have the Prime Ministers ear; that to, also on sale for the right price; with banks and corporations making millions at the expense of the man in the street.
The Plymstock Oaks RFC presently operate from the Horsham playing fields in Plymstock, Plymouth and utilize the existing building for changing rooms and as a kitchen to feed the kids after their games every Sunday. The building has seen far better days and is really unfit for purpose it has barely enough basic changing areas and the players stand outside to eat their meals.
Planning permission has now been approved to extend and renovate this existing building to provide heated changing rooms for the boys and girls as well as the senior players, showers, a safe kitchen environment to prepare meals and seating areas and function rooms for the use of the local community. A small cafe and bar area will also be provided to be open during the week as well as the weekends and will provide a much needed community asset and focus.
These new facilities will allow the club to continue with its two pilot projects instigated last year; rugby for the disabled and its Positive Futures work with the police, using rugby as a social inclusion vehicle for troubled youths. They will also be available as sporting venue during the summer for several additional sports.
Nic’s book was released on Amazon on Saturday 8th Dec and is a story of greed and corruption. Where riots and civil unrest are turning the country upside down and a small group of men are attempting to use the anarchy that is spreading across the country to further their own agendas. Into this nightmare scenario are dragged a young man Adam, his girl friend Isobel and his brother Dan a professional rugby player and English Wing Forward. These three are pursued by the faceless men who believe they are party to information that could comprise their mission and have two choices, to run or, to turn and fight for their lives.
The book is already receiving great reviews which can be found at Amazon and Goodreads and the first 6 chapters can be read upon his website, listed below.
Part of the revenue raised by the sale of the book will go toward the development fund for the project, which is planned as a phased development and will start in May 2013.
