It usually takes me approximately four months to write, edit, layout, produce the cover artwork and publish each of my books. A year has passed since I published my twelfth book, Confronting The Hostile. With a dozen books under my belt, I decided to take my sweet time writing book thirteen, but I’m happy to announce I’ve just finished working on the first draft of The Trouble With Liam. I’m excited by how it’s turned out. My latest book is a dark psychological thriller set in Ireland and Sheffield. It follows the dramatic events in the life of Liam O’Sullivan, an Irishman more attractive on the outside than the inside.
I would have probably published this book by now, but I spent a couple of months helping my best friend, Kathleen Kelly, to publish her first book, called 11. I edited it for her, laid it out for Kindle and paperback, and produced the cover artwork. It’s just received its first five-star review on Amazon and Kath couldn’t be happier. I’m also happy because the publication of 11 means I’ve been able to return to working on my own book.
I’ve already produced two possible artworks for the book cover that I’m reasonably happy with but I might work on a few more before deciding on the final version. As a former graphic designer, I always enjoy working on my book covers. I also love working on all the drafts that follow on from the first, so, with a cheery wave, I’m off to start working on the second draft of The Trouble With Liam.
