A bookish coincidence
I had a pleasant and unexpected coincidence occur on Wednesday and it’s all to do with books. So, here I go again preaching to the converted and publicising a couple of my books.
It started with the good news that a visitor here is reading ‘Remotely‘ and laughing out loud. Perfect, just what it’s there for but wait until she gets to the bit where… (You’ll have to see for yourself.) And then someone else turned up with a copy of the book and may well win the prize for being the first person seen, by me, to be reading ‘Remotely‘ on Symi. We shall see. And then, while attending a dinner party where a copy of the book was on the sideboard, started and, so far, enjoyed (with laughing out loud included), another guest commented that she was reading, and thoroughly enjoying, ‘The Judas Inheritance’ having heard about the film version ‘The 13th‘ that was filmed on Symi, and she had no idea that I was the person that wrote it. Looks like the books are doing well this month and by doing well I don’t mean selling lots, but being enjoyed.
By the way; I think there is a promotion on ‘The Judas Inheritance’ at the moment and a saving to be had if you order a print copy.
So, that was all rather nice and so was the dinner where we stayed far too late and were forced into that nasty situation of having to turn the alarm off before going to bed so as not to be woken at 5.45 when you only got to bed a 1.00 – mind you, I was awake not long after that time anyway thanks to the body clock. But there are no more invites now… until Saturday, oh and Monday – it can be a hectic life here in the summer and we’ve still not got to the very popular month of September when we have lots of return visitors and friends.
But I’m not complaining. I am leaving though, to go and do some pore publicity work on the books before making lunch and then working on another book. This one was the first I wrote and I started it while on Symi back in 1996. It’s going to have a new look, new cover and a bit of a tidy up inside as I cut and correct before releasing it in paperback on Amazon for the first time – in a few months’ time I expect. I have to learn to lay it out in In Design first, so I need to get the basics of that programme under my belt.
Don’t forget though – if you’ve enjoyed one or more of my books then please add an Amazon review on its page and recommend it to other friends and family. Ta muchly.
