It has been a while,
and I offer my apologies. Writing takes time. A
lot of time. Even more time to get it right.
I spent the entirety of January 2017 eradicating
semi colons from my novels. I've also been reviewing
content. It takes time.
I have today (11th March 2017) released the first
six books in both printed and Ebook forms, but only
on Amazon so far. There is one book to go: Domicile,
which has been a 'piece of work'. It is away with
Susan for final polishing, and should be available
within ten days.
I apologise, if I appear to be slow in updating
this page, and others, but my XP computer's on-board
graphics card died. I lost tools that work, making
updating these pages easy. Instead I get a lot of
needless hassle. XP will be fired up again, when
I find a suitable card.
In the coming weeks, and before the end of March
2017, I should have seven novels available on all
major and minor, western sales channels. Each is
different, and has variations of parameters. So
I'll take them one per day. I also have to send
out physical books for review and hopefully acceptance
by the Trade.
Talking of the Book Industry, their main selling
period is Christmas. I am working for sales and
promotion for nine month's time. It's weird. Trade
first, both in UK and the U.S. My Book Catalogue
is now available for dissemination in physical,
I'll follow with other online retailers: B &
H Nook, Kobo, Lulu, Goodreads - the list appears
seemingly endless. However, this is the perfect
time of year to get my books into these markets,
and with Trade supplier support, I'm still ahead
of the clock.
The associated publisher website (Charlotte
Greene) is complete, bar updating with the latest
info, and confirming links. Something else for idle
moments this month. There is a lot to being an independent
publisher, but I'm on course to succeed. Oh, and
I got my U.S. tax status with the IRS sorted already,
so that's a bonus.
One of my greatest joys as a writer of fiction, is bringing imaginary characters to life. Sometimes what they say or do is very funny, or conversely, brings a tear to the eye. My characters have personalities and emotions, something
I gladly share with the reader.
While typing their stories, I am inside the characters heads, and influencing how they as people develop over the course of the story. Some are quite hilarious, such as Da Phai Nai in Star Gazer. Others, like Bill in Fractured are
likeable rogues, or Rosa, a motherly character from the same book, who is also a very clever businesswoman.
I also get a thrill when I manage to disguise a clue, which although in plain view, the reader is led to pass over without realising the significance. Fractured book two, Conspiracy Theory, is notable for this, although it features
in all my writing.
