As part of my preparations for the imminent release of 'The Time Hunters and the Spear of Fate', I thought I'd release the book cover. Anyway, thanks to my good friend, Alex Massey, here it is:
Just a quick note to say I've completed 'The Time Hunters and the Spear of Fate'. Th3 has been a particularly tough write and is around 10000 words longer than the first TH book. Still, I'm proud of it and it should be available in Kindle and Paperback in a matter of weeks :)
I just thought I'd share some nice news with you all. I have been approached by the Italian publisher, Fanucci Editore, about the possibility of publishing 'The Time Hunters' in Italy. It's obviously very exciting for me. My favourite city is Rome (along with New York and Manchester) and it would be lovely to think that I was in print overthere. Now, I'm aware that nothing is certain in his world, and negotiations may well come to nothing, but it's an honour to have even had the enquiry. I'll keep you posted.
It's Christmas Eve, and I'm feeling full of the spirit of Chrimbley. Subsequently, I thought I'd post the first Chapter of 'The Time Hunters and the Spear of Fate' as a small tease of what's to come when I release the next TH book in March (hopefully). Anyway, may I wish everyone a fantastic Xmas and here it is:
I am delighted to say that today I've signed the contract from major publishing house, Bertrand Brasil, to get TH1 published as a print & ebook in Brazil. For me, it's a dream come true. I'm very proud to be an independent writer in Britain, but it's also humbling to think that a major publishing company in Brazil has faith in the series to publish it for the Brazilian market.
I'll keep you all informed of all developments.
Even though I am many months away from releasing the the third TH book, 'The Time Hunters and the Spear of Fate', I just thought I'd get the promotional campaign started nice by releasing the first teaser poster. I'd like to say a big thank you to Alexander Massey for his wonderful work on it.
I shall be heading to the South of France for my hols this weekend, but will be taking the trusty laptop and hope to get some writing done. It'll be strange to visit somewhere so warm yet write a chapter or two set in the icy climes of the Himalayas ... ;)
Here's the teaser poster:
As I mentioned in my previous post, a major Brazilian publisher has expressed interest in publishing 'The Time Hunters' in Brazil. I am very proud to announce they have now made an offer and I have provisionally accepted. I'm now just awaiting the contract. We'll just have to see what that says...
Obviously, this is a very exciting time for me and 'The Time Hunters' and I would like to thank the staunch support the books have received from the online community.
I hope it's also a story that gives hope to indie authors everywhere. The publisher contacted me out of the blue. This means they must be taking note of the charts/reviews on Amazon in the UK and USA. In short, foreign publishers are actively looking and prepared to invest money in independent talent across the world. The message - keep writing, keep promoting, keep trying ...
