Okay. So, as I’ve been saying, Book #2 is due for release soon. This one has me a bit apprehensive. Why? Well, the content of this is, I’m sure, going to upset certain factions and send them into an immediate knee-jerking frenzy. I wrote it hoping it wouldn’t but expecting it would.
I can’t tell you what it’s about at this stage but I believe that as well as being a good story (so, I’m told), it highlights a growing problem not just here in the UK, but globally.
I’ll be interested to see what happens.
Book #1 (TLW) has been out for a few weeks now and it’s still in the Top 100 Bestsellers chart. Can’t complain about that! As of today, it’s at No68 so, it’s on the slide but I’m hoping to see that swing back up when #2 is released. At the moment I don’t have an exact date but Joffe were looking to the end of this month. Don’t know if that will happen though as, at the moment, we have no title and no cover but I know that Joffe Books move fast so it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if it makes it in time.
This has been an interesting day to say the least. The book came out just after midnight and went straight into the top 500. At the end of the day, it finished at number 32 and peaked at 31. For a first time author with no history or following, I’m extremely pleased with that and am indebted to my publisher Joffe Books and to their publicist Jill Burkinshaw.
Jill has been organising blog tours and FB events (great launch party!) and all kinds of stuff to get me out there so a big thank you to her. I’ve long heard that Jasper Joffe has some kind of magic dust he sprinkles on his authors and I think I got an extra helping. Big thank you to the man himself.
If you’d like a copy, the launch price is just 0.99p so grab it while you can from Amazon. It’s also available to take away on an iPad in a bookshop (apparently…)
