After spending many gruelling hours re-editing and re-formatting it for Smashwords, the book is finally published. An achievement for me anyway, as I first wrote it in 1995 and after doing the rounds trying to publish it the conventional way I gave up after countless rejections and forgot about it; moving on to write the next novel. So when a fellow writer suggested I self-publish online as an e-book I saw an opportunity to finally brush away the cobwebs and release it to the unsuspecting world.
Should you wish to read it/buy it [and I hope you do] you’ll find it at Smashwords. To find the book click on the link below. If you go through the company’s home page please ensure you switch off the Adult Filter before you search for the book in the search field – otherwise you won’t find it. I’m selling it at US$2.99 but the first 5 chapters are FREE. You can access the page advertising it by clicking on this link: www.smashwords.com/books/view/211… and then you can download a sample.
I’m pleased to say the book has started to sell, which is what all authors want to achieve; and I have also had some positive feedback. This is what one friend and fellow writer said [I’m sure she won’t mind me quoting her, but will respect her privacy and not mention her name]:
What a great story. You know your history and bring it to life during many twists and turns.
I found it picked up steam as it went on and a few places were very strong and brought tears to my eyes. (eg: the snake bite scene)
Well done to bringing it to a very satisfactory ending too, with all the loose ends tied up. I enjoyed the read and loved your characters.
Thank you and I wish you all the best with sales.
