My 3rd post and I’m already stepping up onto the soap box, so apologies for what is flagrant self-promotion but nobody else is doing it for me, and I’ve got a bit to shout about.
I’m posting here to say “Hello, I exist and I’ve got something good to offer to people who like to read crime-thrillers, horror and cyberpunk.”
I left my career back in 2005 to write, I now have 3 novels out and doing pretty well.
TESCO & Waterstones have recently started reselling one of my novels (GOD SEED), demonstrating the Print-On-Demand business model can provide a successful route-to-market, bypassing the creative bottleneck of the agent/publisher paradigm. It also possibly means I’ll start seeing my books given away free with every bag of sprouts at some point in the future, but hey, what can you do.
I don’t have a big corporate marketing budget pushing my work, there’s just me and a growing number of fans spreading the word.
Once again, humble apologies if I’m breaking any rules here; I’m hoping you find this of interest.
PS: Here's a press release for GOD SEED if you're interested.
