JOHN Garforth, who retired over a year ago from the old Post Office on Station Road, Burley-in-Wharfedale, has spent the last year writing a Sci-Fi adventure novel entitled 'Soul Taker'.

After considering all the avenues to publishing, he submitted the book to the Amazon Site named Kindle Scout. If the story receives enough public nominations in the next 30 days, it could lead to a publishing contract. John is hoping that people will take a few minutes to check out the web-site and whilst there, nominate the book. Visit for more information.
