#BlogTour #ZooloosBookTours @zooloo2008 / #Excerpt : Wilson Indeed #WilsonIndeed – Steve Walsh #SteveWalsh #RedLiteraryAgent

– ‘The Magic of Wor(l)ds’ blog is a hobby, reviews and other bookish stuff on this site are done for free. –

Today I’m on the ‘Wilson Indeed’ blogtour, organized by Zooloo’s Book Tours.
To promote this book I have an excerpt, but before I let you read it first some ‘basic’ information.

About the Author :

For twenty years Steve Walsh honed his skills in prose as an advertising copywriter; the ‘ideas’ man in a Manchester based marketing agency that carried his name.
In the late 1990’s he stumbled into the world of the dotcom entrepreneur and his claim to fame is as the creator of the hotel booking service, laterooms.com and the first car insurance comparison site, easycover.com. So, the birth of Meerkats, a Welsh opera singer and being confused.com might be considered as down to him, for which he apologises.
He now uses his vivid imagination and gentle Mancunian wit to write visionary fantasy novels with bold concepts. Wilson indeed, the first book in his trilogy The WiFi of Dreams takes the reader on a richly imagined, fact meets fiction adventure story to which we can relate and feel we can touch. A whimsical interrogation of the inexplicable and fundamental tenets of our lives – the role and meaning of dreams, the nature of the hereafter, hard and soft science, a love story – what more can you want?
Butterfly Assassins, the second book in the trilogy, will be published in Summer 2021.
In a recent survey, 85% of people said yes to the question: “Do you believe there are things out there that science can’t explain?”
If you’re one of those 85%, you’ll love The WiFi of Dreams series.
Born and bred in the north west of England, Steve Walsh has three children and likes to fly fish in his spare time.

Synopsis :

In The Market Square, the fantastical setting for all his dream activities, Wilson Armitage is able to take night classes on any subject and absorb a wealth of knowledge from just a few hours of sleep. As though logging into a wifi of dreams to download information. As his childhood passes, both wary of and reticent to acknowledge his extraordinary ability, Wilson attempts to lead a normal life and stay beneath the radar of family and friends.
At the age of seventeen however, his cover is blown by Daisy Meadowcroft. During a chance encounter in The Market Square, they agree to meet the next day and are propelled from a dream world into the reality of a coffee shop in the centre of Manchester. Enthralled by their shared gift, they strike up a close friendship and encourage each other to seek a rational, scientific explanation for their unique talents.

“If you believe there really are things out there that science can’t explain, you’ll enjoy this book.”
Mark Sampson, 11 Magazine.

Excerpt :

Wilson took the knife, pulled out the snub nosed pliers, checked the spring mechanism and scrambled back under the car. The call for assistance came thirty seconds later
“Officer! Can you get under here. I need your help.”
After a moment for deliberation and unable to escape public scrutiny, the policeman reluctantly did as requested. Wilson had secured the damaged blood vessel and was holding it tight in the jaws of the pliers.
There wasn’t much room for three bodies and six elbows in the claustrophobic underbelly of the car, but the policeman manoeuvred himself into position nevertheless. The crumpled state of the poor girl made him wince and Wilson sensed his self doubt.
“Come on. She’s only a kid and she’s depending on us. You signed up for the police, the responsibility, so this is where you do your job. Just hold this, exactly like this, with constant pressure, and don’t let go. If you do what I say, I think you’ll save her life.”
There was a stare down in the aura of half light as they carefully completed the handover.
“Keep a firm grip and don’t lose concentration, even when they prop up the car.”
“I won’t man, I won’t.”
As the urge for fight or flight receded, PC Edwards, sensed something other worldly about Wilson. This pimply youth who’d bee n able to stride through chaos with all the surety of a paramedic. There was a transmission in the steely intensity of the lad’s eyes that hinted at a secret under restraint. As though the black orb within each iris was a gateway to something incomprehensibly deep. An obtuse thought accompanied the policeman’s perceptions.
“You’re not really at Manchester Medical School are you?”
“No, not that particular one,” said Wilson, “but I have been to a sort of medical school. Managed to pick up enough, to know quite a lot.”
“So who are you?”
Wilson thought about the question for a moment. He returned the policeman’s gaze with a kind of half smile.
“To be honest, I’ve no idea. But I’m working on it!”
Wilson then rolled out from under the car, leaving PC Edwards to do the award winning work of saving a young girl’s life.
