Early days ...

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

First time for a blog but an interesting chance to communicate with readers who may like my writing, hope that's you!

If you've never written a book it may come as a surprise to know that there are thousands of people writing all over the world. You first realise this when trying to get an agent and publisher only to find your manuscript arriving amongst several hundred others for that day. They're snowed under and spoilt for choice!

So we go the indie way and try to promote our own work.
So I published Shadowland on Amazon Kindle.
Buy on Amazon

It's a Kindle book and is actually the third book I have written. I started the book with just the first sentence not really knowing where it was going to go and it simply grew!

I started Shadowland when my first Book, The Flight of the Griffin, which I shall also put up onto kindle soon, was rejected by two publishers after an auction battle because there was ... too much magic in it? No idea what that was about.

Well, I hope you read Shadowland. There isn't too much magic .... no really, just a little:)

Ok, I'm off to edit The Flight of the Griffin one more time before I upload it to Amazon Kindle.


  1. Congratulations on your blog. I'm glad to be first. Good luck with your indi publishing. I think it's the way to go. Have you thought about sending your book on a blog tour? There are literally thousands of blogs out there that review books and post their reviews on Goodreads and Amazon. And we all know that reviews are the name of the game. I will look for your books next time I'm trawling around for something to read.

  2. Hi Gwynneth,
    Thanks so much for being first onto my blog. I have no idea about any of this, leaning every day (yesterday I joined twitter, today I created a blog!) What's a blog tour and how do I do that then?

    Thanks again
