The Primrose Door has been entered into a competition

I opened a Createspace account in order to turn my kindle edition into a paperback but while I was struggling with the formatting I received an email from Createspace about the 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest.

I have entered my novel and on February 13th I will discover whether or not it has be put forward to round two. It is one of ten thousand so I am not pinning my hopes on its being put through, but as they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained!

I have four reviews on Amazon so far, three of them very good and one saying the reader would have liked to know more about the main characters and what happens to them so while I am waiting I shall be busy writing the sequel. Those of my family and friends who have read it, or are still reading it, have given me very positive feedback and I know that I have judged the market that I am aiming the book fairly correctly. All I need to do now is tap into that market!

Happy and Healthy New Year to you all

After all this wind and rain it was wonderful to wake up to sunshine this morning

Thank you Alison Shore for my new book cover

A very big THANK YOU to Alison Shore

I am not very good at taking advice and I don’t usually admit to this in public! However, it is true and I was advised to have a professional book cover made. Well, sorry Steve Bichard and Jo Harrison for not listening, and, as I say at the top of here ‘A very big Thank You, indeed, to Alison Shore for making the book cover look 100% better than  it did when I tried to make it!

A very Happy Christmas to everyone

I am having a great day, I hope everyone who reads this is also having a good time. A few days ago I sent out an email to all the contacts on our email address book that I thought might remember who we are, to tell them that my book is available to download on Amazon. I have had some really lovely ‘blast from the past’ replies and am particularly pleased with one I got today. I may be feeling soppy because it is Christmas but I really feel that keeping in touch with family and friends is the best part.

I’ve got my very first review

The first review, and it is a good one. As far as I know Sally is the first to have finished my book after downloading, so the first person to have read it apart from my 5 proof readers. I am very nervous with regard to what everyone else will think of it!
