Welcome to this, my first post.
And I open with some exciting news! Not for you (although it may be) but for me. After having written two full length crime novels I have managed to secure a publishing deal with Joffe Books. For those of you who don’t know them, they are a hugely progressive publisher of crime thriller whose stats speak for themself. From their website:
We sell a book every 15 seconds. In 2017, 1.4 million of our books were sold, with over 300 million pages read on Kindle Unlimited alone (equivalent to another 1.5 million sales). Recent successes include: “Their Lost Daughters” was a UK #1 best seller, and #3 in the USA. All four of Joy Ellis’s books in the top 50 UK best sellers on Amazon. T.J. Brearton’s “Gone” sold 25,000 copies in its first month, topping UK and US best-seller lists. Joy Ellis and Helen H. Durrant’s mystery series have sold over 500,000 copies and rising. Faith Martin has had her first five books hit the UK top 20 best sellers. Taylor Adams’ No Exit has sold translation rights in 14 countries.
That is, by any standards, impressive and I can’t believe my good fortune in being offered a contract to work with them and it is a thrill to be part of Joffe’s stable of writers.
This blog will, amongst other things, chart my progress as I take my first tentative steps with Joffe and I will do my best to record the lows (hopefully, very few if any at all) and the highs (hopefully, loads). I don’t know how it will all go of course, but I think I’m in pretty good hands with Jasper and his team.
