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.

My four audiobooks in The Hostile series

4 HOSTILE Audiobook covers JPG

There are audiobook editions of all four books in The Hostile series of paranormal crime thrillers on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. Three are narrated by Alexander Doddy, and I narrated the first one http://adbl.co/2uhwzhQ

THE HOSTILE is book 1 of The Hostile 4-book series of paranormal crime thrillers. I was the narrator on this audiobook and it is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. 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 enjoying The Hostile, you’ll never look at D.I.Y. in the same way again. http://adbl.co/2w2YLIm

HOLIDAY FOR THE HOSTILE is book 2 of The Hostile series. Narrated by Alexander Doddy, the audiobook is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. Serena, plus her unusual friend and partner in crime, Tile X, find themselves suffering a family holiday at her eccentric grandfather’s hovel in Ireland. Who will manage to escape intact from their dramatic holiday from Hell? http://adbl.co/2wg4j21

THE HOSTILE GAME is book 3 of The Hostile series. Narrated by Alexander Doddy, the audiobook is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. In The Hostile Game, Manchester-based Serena, now eighteen and pregnant, finally discovers the reason why Tile X befriended her seven years before. She doesn’t like what she hears. Mayhem ensues, with a retired Irish police superintendent becoming more involved than perhaps he should have. http://adbl.co/2fLE2Cz

The Kindle of A SLICE OF THE SEVENTIES is FREE on Amazon from 30th-31st May

A Slice of the Seventies FRONT cover HendrixA Slice of the Seventies tells the true story of Jersey-born Mug, a troubled girl from a recently broken home. It covers her experiences as a teenager at the Isle of Wight Music Festival in 1970, the same year she follows a guru. The book tracks her tumultuous four years as an art student in Coventry, where vegetarian Mug finds herself living next door to an abattoir and a railway shunting yard with David, a fellow art student. Dramatic events follow on from the evening they first meet at a party, where David is attempting to commit an extremely public suicide. Whether you were around during that decade or not, you’re bound to enjoy this nostalgic Slice of the Seventies. This loosely autobiographical book can be read as a stand-alone without having to read The Lying Scotsman, and Straws, books 2 and 3 in the Mug trilogy.

A Slice of the Seventies audiobook cover JPGAn audiobook edition of A Slice of the Seventies, beautifully narrated by Tracey Norman, is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

Doc Togden said in his review, “I have studied and written about this period of British cultural history and find this book completely delightful. Now you don’t need Dr Who’s TARDIS – you have A Slice of the Seventies.” “A thoroughly gripping read – it will make you boogie.”

My daughter sent me the link to this article because she thought I’d find it interesting. She was right. If you click on the link above, you may, or may not, find it interesting too.

I’m a big fan of audiobooks and now have audiobook editions of eight of my twelve books on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. Four were narrated by Alexander Doddy, two by Tracey Norman, and two by me. Working with these two talented narrators has been a wonderful experience. I plan to publish more audiobooks in the future and hope to soon be working with Alexander and Tracey again.

I’ll probably continue to publish Kindle and paperback editions as well as audiobooks because it costs me nothing except time to do so. I don’t pay for my covers or for book layout because I used to be a professional graphic designer, so I do it all myself.
