Month: December 2017

Boxing Day Bonanza!

Yes, it’s that time of year again when we all eat and drink too much and scan the internet or the local shops for a good bargain.

Well, if you enjoy gripping crime fiction with a twist of fear factor and a shake of the supernatural, you are in luck! Because this festive season, the hot new Detective Deans novel, DEAD BY DESIGN (UK Kindle Best Seller) will be having a Kindle Countdown.

If you don’t know what that is, here’s the low down – DEAD BY DESIGN will start the Kindle Countdown at the lowest possible price of just 99p/99c on Boxing Day… but the clock is counting down and when the time runs out… the price will go up!

So, to make it even easier for you to grab an absolute bargain, I’ve attached links to the Kindle sites for your area. Simply click the link and download a chilling good read!  But don’t just take my word for it, look at what readers are saying:

Best book I’ve read in a long time”

“What a book, gripping, unexpected twists it has it all, and that ending!”

“I could never second guess what the next chapter held, a must read for anyone”

“I was so gripped by the storyline that I read it in one sitting, totally immersed in a plot combination of crime and the supernatural.”

What are you waiting for? Tuck in to this festive treat, oh, and do tell a friend, it’s only fair to share this Christmas time!

Wishing you all a very merry and peaceful Christmas holiday.

Festive Season’s Update!

It has been a very busy time of late! Following the release of DEAD BY DESIGN almost exactly one month ago, my foot doesn’t seem to have come off the gas.

It was a very successful launch with lots of people either downloading the book or purchasing the paperback copy. In fact, the demand on local paperback sales was so great that it caught me out and I had to request additional panic print runs so that I had a product to promote at the the various book events!

The eBook went pretty well too, and after only a few days following release, DEAD BY DESIGN became a UK Best Seller in category on Amazon Kindle.

I then had a busy week – first I was a guest on my local radio station, The Voice FM, talking to fellow authors, Oliver Tooley and Simon Dawson about my new book and why the North Devon landscape plays such an important role in my story telling.

And then I had a lovely evening at Walter Henry’s Bookshop in Bideford for the official release of the paperback, and was lucky enough to have a few Deano fans in the room to ask me lots of great questions. 

This is me at the start of the evening trying my best not to look in the slightest bit nervous – big fail!

Followed later that weekend by a day with my friends at Westward Ho! Beach Shop, where I was resident for the day, signing books and speaking to lots of lovely people who kindly came in to keep me company!

Here I am with one local Deano fan, Steve, who kindly took one of my books away with him! 

We also have competition winners to celebrate! First, Roger Pullen, who won a signed paperback copy of DEAD BY DESIGN kindly donated by Westward Ho! Beach Shop. And Sheena Exton from Lancashire, who won the very first printed paperback copy of DEAD BY DESIGN. Congratulations to you both!
