Brief Update

Just wanted to write a short post to explain my lack of quote pictures, oracle readings (though I did a longer one to make up for it the other day, you can check it out here!) and blog posts.

There are two major demands on my time at the moment – my work and house renovations. I have been at my desk every day, working, and then sometimes painting floors and walls until 2am. It’s all going in the right direction, and I am certainly not complaining that I have so much work at the moment! When I decided to do the publishing work full-time, I had no idea it would get this crazy this fast! One of the authors I’m working with has just published his book, Alchemy of Age, and it is now available on Amazon. And another author I am working with is about to release his book in the next couple of weeks, we’re just making the final adjustments! I will post more information on that book soon.

So please be patient with me, I am also working on my new book, and I will get it out into the world as soon as it is ready. Have been working on getting the new covers ready too, there have been a couple of technical hitches on that front which has slowed the process down.

In other news, there had been a journal entry on one of the copies of The Doorway to PAM on, you can view it here. The person who caught it and read it gave it 8 out of 10 stars. Pretty good I think!

I also joined Flickr, out of curiosity as well because someone said I should check it out. So I uploaded some of my quote photos on there, but I have absolutely no idea what I am supposed to do now! Any suggestions are welcome.

When things start to overwhelm me, I remind myself of this:



The Books have been released!

A little haphazardly, admittedly, I’m new to the whole book crossing thing! I should have made note of which number book went where, but I forgot… Anyway! They are out there, in the following locations in Monmouth – La Piazza … Continue reading

Book Crossing Book Tour!


As an Indie Author/Publisher, I have inevitably ended up with copies of my books that are unsaleable for various reasons. I had a box of books destroyed by a courier (bent pages, ruined spines etc) and have had books returned from shops that have closed that are too beaten up to sell as new. I thought about selling these books at a discount when I do fairs, but then offering a damaged product didn’t appeal to me. As a book lover, I like to get a nice shiny copy when I buy a book, so I couldn’t bring myself to do that. I thought about just giving them away, but then I remembered The concept is that you register a book, get a code, put the code in the book, and then release the book into ‘the wild’. The book is then picked up, read by someone, and they can log in with the code to say where they found the book, and what they thought of it, then they pass it on to someone else.

I thought this might be a fun way to get my books out there, but also an alternative kind of book tour! So I have registered four copies of The Doorway to PAM, and I have put a post-it note on the front of each book, saying that it is free. I have stuck a label inside, that says the book is on tour and what it’s Book Crossing code is.

I hope that people find them, pick them up, read them and then pass them on. And if I get a few more Amazon reviews that would be a nice bonus too!

I will be releasing these four books this week, and in the spirit of the book, I will be leaving one in a cinema, one in a tearoom, one in a pub, and one in a hotel. I thought about starting them from different locations, but as I don’t have a car at the moment, that may be a bit tricky, so I have decided to start them all in Monmouth, and then I can track to see just how far they travel! I will update their locations once I have released them, you can see them on my bookshelf on
