A 96-YEAR-OLD Glaswegian has just published his first novel – which centres on a fight between South American drug barons.
William Glen, a tenant at Bield’s Carntyne Gardens retirement housing, developed a love of writing after retiring from work as a plumber and has spent months writing and planning his book titled ‘After the Panic’ which is now available on Kindle.
News of Mr Glen’s achievement has been a hit with titles around Scotland and further afield, with publications such as The Times, The Herald and The Scotsman picking up the story. The Daily Record even conducted a follow-up interview with Mr Glen after reading about his success.
Highlights from the campaign include:
- 49 press cuttings from titles across the UK
- Hits in some of the Scotland’s most widely read national titles including The Times, I, The Scotsman, The Herald, Metro (Scotland) and the Daily Record
- Key regional print coverage in titles including the Midlothian Advertiser and the Glasgow Evening Times
- Online coverage on sites such as glasgowlive.co.uk and fifetoday.co.uk
