Another one done and dusted

Links to books

I am proud to announce the release of my new book Daniel Jones Doom the long awaited sequel to frenzy a Daniel Jones story. As you can see by the header above I have inserted the links to the book for my readers not just in the U.K but In America and other countries too. The book is available in digital format and at a special introduction price. Daniel Jones Doom is also available in paper back and a limited edition hard back version should be released soon. To co-inside with the release the cover price for the Kindle version of Frenzy a Daniel Jones story has also been reduced to match.

The New Year will soon be here and by February 2015 it will be four years since that day when I emailed my resignation to the company operations director explaining my reasons for giving them my notice. It was still the height of the financial crises and the world was still on a tight rope. The world order could have collapsed into a frenzy of mayhem (and it may still!), but I was determined to become a author, and now four years later I have two books published that are available for sale in over twenty countries. 

By the time the date arrives where I can celebrate my fourth anniversary as an author I plan to have started writing my next book. It will be the third in the Daniel Jones series, and I plan to keep to the fast pace unique style of writing that my readers have come to love. New characters will arrive and like the previous two books a beloved character will go. No one character is safe from the author’s cut, even Daniel Jones himself, because I don’t want the books to become predictable.

The last four years have been full of lows and highs, but to be truthful there have been more lows than highs. In fact for any author that’s new it’s a constant struggle to get established. For every high I would say there are ten low points; a constant stream of rejections, no shows and failures. I’m still not there and have a long way to go, but as Sir Winston Churchill once said. ‘Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is perhaps, the end of the beginning.’

So I still have a long way to go and probable that’s the best part of it because I still have plenty of dreams to follow, and hope, like one day seeing my books on the big screen, and according to some reviews for Frenzy this could be a good possibility one day. But until that day arrives another of Churchill’s quotes is in my head. ‘My rule of life prescribed an absolutely sacred rite smoking cigars and also drinking of alcohol, after and if need be during all meals and in the intervals between.’

So with this in mind I’m heading to my local pub the Fat Cat and Canary  at lunch time because my football team, Norwich City F.C are playing away at Derby County, and it’s live on the Television. So I don’t care what the health lobby say because if it’s good enough for the great man Churchill then it is good enough for me.


P.s As this is the last post before Christmas I just want to wish you peace and joy during this festive season and to remember the true power of Love.
