New Cockney Rhyming Slang: “49q?’d”

I love words. I love playing with words. I love writing words. Like Shakespeare, I also love to make up new words and sayings. That is the marvel of the English language, it’s so versatile. Cockney Rhyming Slang (being a Londoner) is especially dear to my heart.

49q cover new

“49q? The Enigma Continues” is a new-concept novel I began writing in the mid-90s as part of a trilogy, a movie, AND a heavy rock music album. Those of you that know me better than others know I work in a very high-chunk realm, and love to push the boundaries of creativity. It took me seven years to compile and almost drove me mad in the process, as it’s rather intricate and confusing. Many elements of the work are free-thought association and spiritual/ cosmic channeling – at one point I even thought I was possessed…!!!? Yeah, seriously 49q?’d.

That’s the cockney rhyming slang: 49q?’d = screwed. I’m not sure how popular the expression will become, but I’m releasing the second in the trilogy to mark ten years since the completion of the project. It’ll be free to download later this month for reviewers and ratings. If you want to know more, just email me: Anthony Donnelly Email.

It’s a confusing read in parts, deep in places, some interesting quotations to make you think, downright bizarre in many elements, but for the most part an engaging and thought-provoking read. I’m looking forward to seeing how the world finally takes to this old work…

Try not to get 49q?’d, and…

Stay tuned.
