MY PUBLISHING JOURNEY – SECOND OUTING

STOPPING POWER: CONTACT releases today so let’s get the shameless link out of the way.

This is the second episode in the STOPPING POWER series and it’s already been well received by fans with advanced copies, so that’s a relief. I wait to see how other people take to it.

With a punishing release schedule ahead of me I have no time to rest on the glory of getting another piece of work out to the masses. Episodes 5, 6 & 7 have now gone to the editor and I’ve drafted the first chapter of ep 8. I’m on week one of seven I’ve allowed myself for the next three episodes and it’s going to be tight, but I generally work well under pressure.

By the time you’ve read this blog episode 3 should be submitted to Amazon ready to be available to pre-order and hopefully by next week episode 4 will be with the printers so I don’t miss the deadline for it to be ready for release day.

There is so much going on and I seem to have such little time on my hands with all that is happening right now.

NEW MARKETS

Those of you who follow me on social media will have seen that I finally announced a bit of news that I’ve had to keep under my hat for a few weeks. I’ve signed up with a micro-publisher, Scorpius Books, who specialise in publishing books adapted to make them easier for people with dyslexia to read. This means a bigger format, a special font and editing to make the language easier to read, amongst others changes.

I’m really excited that this signing, currently limited to my IN THE END series, will get my fiction to more readers. The first book is due to be published later this year.

EVENTS

With the cost of living crisis there is a general concern amongst the stallholders that people will start giving up on their spending at the events I go to, but so far this has not been the case. I had an average level of sales, which is great, at Henley and I look forward to the next one at the end of the month in Godalming, near Guildford.

At the weekend I will be climbing Snowdon with my pals, returning on Monday which means another day off writing and a whole lot of weekend time not doing bits of writing admin, but then again all these trips help to keep me inspired. Fun fact. I wrote my first ever novel, FATE’S AMBITION, after climbing Snowdon, so you never know what might come into my brain next.

I think I’ve covered everything for this week. Let me know if you have any questions or comments as always.
