Writing fantasy

My #Christmas just got better with the offer of a real job as a ghostwriter.

A lot of people are dubious about being a ghostwriter, but my view is I’ll get paid even if the book doesn’t do well, and I am trying to get in the Association of ghostwriters, and I need two people to vouch for my work.

This is the comment from my client about Sons of Baal, book 1 in my Science Fiction series – Thank you for bidding on my project. I have read some of your book and I like your style!

I am known for #scifi, but years ago, my book To Elfenmere got praised by a lady with a BA in Medieval Studies Book Cover 3

Happy Christmas

The BIG 600

600Yes, finally my series Forgestriker makes the grade with its 600th e-book sale, in less than two years.

I’ll never know who, or where you are, but I thank you for all your help in the great success of the series. If you want to help a little more, a few kind words on the pages can boost sales.

 

Percy Fawcett

One of the great mysteries of the late 1920’s is the disappearance in the Amazon jungle of Sir Percy Fawcett. My book Did we see him? is a fictional story based on the most popular theories of the time.

Coming soon

I have plans to do a sequel called Did we see them? This has been in the WIP stage for some while, as I thought there would be no interest in my story – a Did we see themcommon flaw.

 

I’m writing a story (not a sequel) on the further adventures of Charles Palmerston called Akuji that will be set in Africa.

Forgestriker – the hit series

#Firefly 

If you enjoyed the series Fireflyand who didn’t?  You’ll enjoy my hit series Forgestriker, it is so popular that in under two years the seven book series is one sale short of selling 600 e-books on Barnes & Noble.

Further adventures

I did plan to write another series about Forgestriker, but as the later books in the series didn’t sell well I put the idea out of my mind.

Zombies are here

Where are they now?

The big hoax

Three years ago, there was the largest publicity stunt in living memory – an ironic phrase.

2012

Writers from everywhere were writing about the end of the world, the Mayan Calender stone and a zombie apocalypse – here we are three years on and still rolling.

What happened to all the writers who made a mint that year?
They’re no better off than me, one reason I never follow a trend.

Nobody sent me money when the panic was on about the end of the world -three years ago. It’s coming to the end of 2015, and we’ve moved on  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aztec_calendar_stone. I guess all those rich folk from 2012 are looking for the next cash cow to milk.

Writing contest

Better than Amazon

@Amazon @Draft2Digital #amwriting #indie

I admit to being biased to Draft2Digital, but in all fairness they are far Better than Amazon, not only for service but for my sales. I sell more even on a bad month on Draft2Digital than I do in a year on Amazon.

Amazon’s problem for writers is that the site is too large.

Patti is going on terminal leave

Patti cover

It is with a sad heart that I bid Ms Pat Canella a farewell. Like Mark Johnson, she was one of my favourite characters to write. Despite the books being recommended by an Australian policeman for their genuine feel, the series https://www.draft2digital.com/book/32325 never sold and is now destined for the tip 😦
