New book being published

Alright, so it’s an e-book, self-published via Kindle Direct, but it’s a start. Trying to break into the world of the author is tough. We hear of over night success at Costa Award ceremonies, but it’s more likely that the author has been writing away for years and years before they got anywhere.

There are many times when I nearly gave up on the whole thing. You get rejections all the time. But the good thing about all this? It makes your skin thicker. Which is a good thing, because not everyone is going to like what you do, no matter how much you get your name known. And that’s okay. Really. My book is due to be live any hour now, and the next stage is to publicise it. That certainly feels a bit nerve-racking, but I’m hoping friends, family and fantastic social media mates will help me along. And, of course, there’s always my mum. It’s a start. Let’s see where it will go.

To purchase my new book, The Boy Who Played Guitar, go to http://www.amazon.co.uk/Boy-Who-Played-Guitar-ebook/dp/B0072G32UU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1327928661&sr=8-2
