Afternoon tea with author Jacqueline Ward

I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday’s ‘Afternoon Tea with author Jacqueline Ward’ event. It was held in the perfect setting of Alexandra Park’s Conservatory in Oldham. Jacqueline gave a reading from her psychological thriller, Perfect Ten, then enthralled the audience with an informative talk about her career and the publishing industry. I’m looking forward to reading my signed copy of Perfect Ten.

It was lovely to meet Jacqueline for the first time and to reacquaint myself with Phaedra Patrick and Dan Forrester. (Thanks for the lift home, Phaedra. Much appreciated.)

The event was part of Oldham Library’s annual Bookmark Festival. A perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

The Kindle of The Hostile is free today

The Kindle of THE HOSTILE is FREE on Amazon today, 20th February

In a rundown area of Manchester, inside the bathroom of a terraced house overflowing with children and dysfunctional parents, a small but powerful entity befriends young Serena with disastrous results. This unlikely enigmatic force not only dramatically affects introverted Serena’s life but also threatens the well-being of everyone she knows, especially those who’ve earned the strange girl’s displeasure. It soon becomes clear that nobody should ever upset Serena if they know what’s good for them. After reading The Hostile, you’ll never look at DIY in the same way again.
The Hostile, book 1 of The Hostile quartet, is a “refreshingly original” contemporary paranormal crime thriller. “Compelling, strange, and wonderful.” Each book in the 4-book series can be read as a stand-alone.

Tomorrow is Publication day!

TTWL banner word banner jpg

I hope I survive the night because I’m publishing the Kindle and paperback of THE TROUBLE WITH LIAM on Amazon tomorrow, the1st October. I’d hate for you not to be able to read it.

The Trouble With Liam is a powerful psychological thriller set in Ireland and Sheffield. It tells the story of the life of Liam O’Sullivan, in all its twisted glory. It begins with tales of his challenging childhood in Dublin and follows him through the sometimes tragic events which change him into a misogynistic, controlling, ultimately lethal bully living in Sheffield. Prepare to be shocked in different ways throughout the book. If you’re not a fan of thrillers, or reading books containing violence, sex, and swearing, please avoid The Trouble With Liam. If you enjoy lashings of dark humour, situations to make your eyes pop out of your head, thrills of every kind, all wrapped up in a gripping, dramatic storyline, please read on.

The Kindle of CONFRONTING THE HOSTILE is FREE on Amazon from 10th-11th September

Today I finished writing the first draft of The Trouble With Liam

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.
