E-books vs. P-books
June 2013 Doing the final publicity for the first three stories in Detective Ladies of Baker Street series (sales are happening already in the US, Japan, and the UK). Once done I shall continue with the second of the Operation Hawkwind books, The D-Day Dance. Around the 20th, I shall start a research trip at Southwick House, Portsmouth, where the D-Day invasion was planned and executed. Then over to Normandy to visit the beaches. Followed by a trip to the HQ of the German Atlantic Wall defences at Chateau La Roche Guyon, between Paris and the coast. But mustn’t forget to keep writing while I’m enjoying myself.
May 2013 I have now published three ebooks of my comic crime series, The Detective Ladies. Printed versions will come out in August 2013. The Detective Ladies of Baker Street, The Detective Ladies Meet Jack the Nipper, The Detective Ladies in Death Holds a Seance are out on Kindle and Kobo. For more information, please click on the Detective Ladies button in the menu above. I have just returned from the London Book Fair where I was promoting them.
January 2013. Currently I am focusing on publicising my first ebook, the WWII action adventure, Island of Steel, set on the occupied Channel Island of Guernsey, number one of a trilogy. There is a YouTube promo out (see the Island page). The book is out on Kindle. I have connected with Goodreads, and Wattpad, and am getting lots of Twitter followers. Plus doing some blogs. I had an excellent interview on Radio Guernsey in Nov which was great fun and increased sales – thank you. A paperback version – a pbook, is due out in spring 2013. Added to all this, I am writing the follow-up book, The D-Day Dance, set just before the D-Day landings.
The picture is me in the Guernsey War Museum. The German army vehicle was featured in the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Which amused me for one of the book’s publicity tags read: The world of Indiana Jones meets World War Two!
