FREE SCRIVENER TRAINING WEBINAR 1 May 2014

I don’t know about you, but I’ve struggled to get  to grips with Scrivener. But now, the great Joel Friedlander of thebookdesigner.com is to hold a free webinar. The live event is on 1 May 2014, but if you sign up you’ll be able to watch it at your convenience.

So if, like me, you would really like to be able to use Scrivener with confidence, this is a must-see event.

INTERVIEWED BY AL OF THEINDIEVIEW

I was interviewed by Al of TheIndieView.com and the interview appeared today.

We covered the usual things, such as background, writing habits, views on the trad versus the indie life and why I decided to leave traditional publishing and turn indie.

FREE! DEAD BEFORE MORNING #1 in my 15-strong Rafferty and Llewellyn series

Just to let you know that DEAD BEFORE MORNING, the first in my 15-strong Rafferty & Llewellyn police procedural series, is now FREE! (only in the UK so far; I hope to persuade Amazon to price-match in other countries also, but no luck so far).

#1 in series

I expect to keep it free for the foreseeable future so you can have an introduction to my work. I f you like British procedural series that have a quirky take on family life and police work it could be worth your while to download it.

ABOUT THE RAFFERTY AND LLEWELLYN SERIES
Brit DI Joe Rafferty, working-class lapsed Catholic, is cursed by coming from a family who think — if he must be a copper — he might at least have the decency to be a bent one.

And, if you like Tudor Biographical Historical Fiction, don’t forget that Reluctant Queen: The story of Mary Rose Tudor, the Defiant Little Sister of Infamous English king, Henry VIII, is a Goodreads Giveaway until 30 April 2014, with the chance to win one of ten copies of the pb edition.

‘A very readable account of a fascinating woman who dared to stand up to Henry VIII and survived. It is thoroughly researched, admirably written and the author’s love of the Tudor period shines through.’

I’ve just returned from a week’s holiday in Venice. Beautiful place, but oh, those endless steps over the canals! My weary, couch potato legs proved unable for the challenge (an inability not improved when I decided to put myself on a starvation diet for the duration after checking out the restaurant prices). I had to keep taking a rest on the bottom steps and hope some great, gallumphing, fellow tourist didn’t stand on me!

RELUCTANT QUEEN: Price reduction plus new cover for the amazon ebook

I’ve today reduced the price of my biographical historical, Reluctant Queen, by $1 / 77p (though, as usual, amazon has altered the price upwards! Why do they do that?!). It’s meant to be $4.99, down from $5.99, but on the book page it’s showing as priced at $5.14 / £3.09. wish I knew how to persuade them to leave my prices alone (unless they decide to lower them and bear the price hit themselves!).

Any opinions on the two covers?
