I’ve done it! I’m an author again!

Finally Iniquities is finished! Finally the three separate titles of the Iniquities Trilogy have been merged and the final e-book is currently with Amazon and will be available in Kindle form in the next couple of days.

Over 300,000 words have been reduced to 255,746 (or thereabouts). The story has been tightened up, typos and other errors which got through the editing process for the original books have been corrected. This is the best I can get it. 

All that for £2.99! Very good value for the reader but not such good value for the author unless hundreds (thousands?) buy it. So buy it … Enjoy it … and Spread the word!

A Different Coast

IoW4I’ve finally settled on the title for the follow up to Her Parents’ Daughter.
As well as writing this I am currently re-vamping the three books of The Iniquities Trilogy into a single volume to be published in 2016. In the second section, Walking Alone, Charles Donaldson, an ornithologist, is writing a series of articles whilst temporarily living in Polperro, Cornwall. He named the series of articles he wrote whilst away from his home in Hoylake, on the Wirral peninsula, A Different Coast.
Much of the action in Her Parents’ Daughter takes place in Yarmouth, on the north coast of the Isle of Wight. Much of the action in the sequel (to be published late 2016) will take place, not only in Yarmouth, but also elsewhere …… but still by the sea.
A quick check on a regularly used internet search engine revealed no book with that title.
So thank you Charles, whatever anyone says about you I think you’re quite a nice chap.

 

Book Tour!

Anyone in Ludlow, Shropshire?

I will be at the Castle Bookshop next Friday (13th February) from 10am till 12pm hoping to interest you in Her Parents’ Daughter (and my other titles). I will also be happy to discuss my self-publishing experience and offer – not advice, I wouldn’t presume – any benefit that may be gained from my, very individual, experiences. I am looking forward to renewing acquaintance with the Charlton Arms and the Church, not to mention the shops – I wonder how many of my once regular suppliers still survive three years after I left….

Anyone in Heswall?

I will be at Linghams Booksellers next Saturday (14th February) from 11am till 1pm. It’s a few years since I was actually on the Wirral though I have spent much of the past ten years there in my head as four of my six books have been rooted in my life there in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Changed beyond all recognition is the phrase that springs to mind.

Hoping to see you there….
