Today I feature in an author interview over at ‘The Story Reading Ape’, run by Chris Graham.
I love it when sites offer a platform for authors to connect with a new audience. Lawd knows it’s tough enough to make the breakthrough on your own. It’s a short read and discusses why I decided to down corporate tools and dedicate a large swathe of my time to writing. You can read it here.
On my last newsletter (you can sign up here), I announced plans to run a competition next month where I’ll be giving away Kindle device(s) for FREE through a Facebook and WordPress campaign. More detail on that in due course.
The next couple of months will see both my books being heavily discounted, from the already extortionate price of $2.99. Several paperback copies of Sigil, the Amazon #1 bestseller, are available to own for Goodreads members. All you have to do is enter this competition (click a button) to be in with a chance to win.
I received a lot of positive feedback after my last post. I broke new ground, gaining my first ever one-star review which would have been hilarious if I had had a bunch of reviews to balance out the average on Amazon. I didn’t. The result was that the weighted average was massively impacted because of that review.
Since then, I’ve had a couple of five-stars come in praising the book which helped boost its star status. Those, coupled with your kind comments, helped steady the ship. Author’s egos can be a delicate thing at the best of time, so thank you for that!
If you have read any of my books, Pathfinders, Sigil or the short story Spectrum, and enjoyed them, it would be great if you could take the time to drop a little one line review into either Amazon, Barnes and Noble or Goodreads. It really makes a huge difference.
You can read the opening chapters of all three stories for free through the relevant book page.
In the next week I’ll be uploading a new instalment of the #Reid2Write interviews – a series where I speak with interesting characters with a unique story. I had the opportunity to talk with Dr. Sean Moran, a data scientist who worked at the CERN research institute. We discuss the evolution of A.I., codifying bestselling books and the potential impact of advancing technology on the creative arts.
Not to be missed!
