Four of my current Goodreads Giveaways

Here are four of my latest Goodreads Giveaways. For the past couple of years, I’ve been offering a few of my paperbacks each month as Goodreads Giveaways. All readers need to do is enter the Giveaway to have a chance of winning a copy. I’ve written twelve books, so there’s always something different for you to select. I used to limit the entry solely to readers in Great Britain, but recently I’ve been offering Americans, Canadians, and Australians a chance to win one of my paperbacks, as well as Brits.

I only added my Living with Postcards paperback Giveaway today, so it’s showing on here as non-verified, but Goodreads will verify it in a day or two. This book, in particular, looks so much better in paperback than as a Kindle edition because it’s packed with full-colour illustrations of many of my postcards from my large collection. I’ve been collecting mostly fantasy, comic and novelty postcards since the 1970s and own over 2,000 of these beautiful, quirky, historical items. Living with Postcards is my only non-fiction book. My other eleven books are fiction. They are a mix of crime thrillers, paranormal, short stories, novels, and memoirs.

I’m currently enjoying writing books 13 and 14 simultaneously. One is another crime thriller, whose title I’m keeping under wraps. The other is book 5 of The Hostile series of paranormal crime thrillers.

 

If you enter any of my Goodreads Giveaways, Good luck! I hope you win.

A snapshot of Joy Mutter’s Books

I’m Jersey-born and lived on the island for 18 years. I worked as a graphic designer for 20 years in Kent. I’m now a full-time indie author living in Oldham. I published my 10th book, The Hostile Game, in May 2017.

Random Bullets is a contemporary crime thriller with a paranormal twist. Set mainly in Jersey, Manchester, Cornwall, London, and places not of this world. It’s my personal favourite. http://amzn.to/2ahXcc4

The books in the Mug trilogy are A Slice of the Seventies, http://amzn.to/2tIIV1s, The Lying Scotsman, http://amzn.to/2c0sEy3, and Straws http://amzn.to/2bD3Dr0. These books are all loosely autobiographical.

Potholes and Magic Carpets is a contemporary novel set in rural Kent and London. A tale of not so simple folk. http://amzn.to/29gA3bE

Her demonic Angel is my baker’s dozen of short stories in various genres. It is also available as an audiobook. http://amzn.to/295kGjn

Living with Postcards is a perfect present from the past. It is my only non-fiction book and is colour-illustrated throughout. http://amzn.to/22qrcH1

The Hostile series is an unusual collection of paranormal crime thrillers, mostly set in Manchester. Each can be enjoyed as a standalone.

The Hostile is book 1. http://amzn.to/2pAHALo,

Holiday for The Hostile is book 2. http://amzn.to/2fJTSg0

The Hostile Game is book 3. http://amzn.to/2oYlsqC

word Confronting the Hostile cover v 3 PDF-page-001Audiobooks of these three books are available on Audible, Amazon and iTunes. I’m currently writing the second draft of book four, Confronting The Hostile.

 

Each of my ten Kindle editions is £0.99 or equivalent currencies on Amazon and is always free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers. The paperback versions won’t break the bank either. The Hostile, Holiday for The Hostile, The Hostile Game, and Her demonic Angel are available on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes as audiobooks.

Tomorrow’s meet-the-author event

Looking forward to speaking for an hour or so at my meet-the-author event at Oldham Coliseum tomorrow. I hope my voice holds out for that long, as I don’t use it very often. I’ve thoroughly prepared my speech and am not too nervous … yet. I’ll be the only author talking at tomorrow’s event, as far as I’m aware.

My talk will be about my nine books and life as a full-time indie author, although I’ll be concentrating on my non-fiction book, Living with Postcards, as the organiser requested. I’m bringing about 50 of my 2,000 postcards along to illustrate the talk. I could have put together a powerpoint presentation, but I reckon holding the actual postcards will be more satisfying for the audience, and feel less formal. I’ll be handing out my own book promotion postcards too, whether the audience wants them or not, ha! They can turn them into paper airplanes and launch them at me if they get bored.

This’ll be the second meet-the-author event I’ve spoken at in the past six months. Maybe that’s why I’m not too nervous, although my first talk was only 15 minutes long, and there were four other authors speaking then. Wish me luck.

A Christmas gift from me to you

The Kindle edition of Living with Postcards will be FREE on Amazon from tomorrow, 22nd to 26th December. My Christmas gift from me to you all. Merry Christmas.

Living with Postcards is a colour-illustrated non-fiction book that describes my close relationship with old postcards, mostly pre-1924. I’ve collected them since the 1970s and now own over 2,000 of these charming, quirky historic items. Living with Postcards is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions. A beautiful present from the past.

“The author shares her impressive knowledge of vintage postcards in an entertaining and informative style. Brimming with lovely reproductions, it is never dull. A book to read from cover to cover or to dip into. Certainly, a book to revisit. Living with Postcards makes an imaginative present, even to someone like me who has no particular interest in postcard collecting. I can thoroughly recommend it.”

I started enthusiastically collecting postcards whilst writing my main thesis on Fantasy in Postcards at Art College whilst studying for my graphic design degree. My thesis won me a first with distinction, whereas my graphic art annoyingly gained me only a 2:2. My art history tutor suggested I lecture on fantasy in postcards. As I was only twenty-one at the time, I didn’t feel ready to become a lecturer and declined his kind offer. I decided to write this book instead. All the cards in Living with Postcards are from my own large collection. I’m giving a talk at Oldham Coliseum about Living with Postcards in January.

Limbering up

living-with-postcards-banner-jpg

I’m doing my usual limbering up exercises for tomorrow’s one day free Kindle promotion on Amazon of Living with Postcards. It is my only non-fiction book and a true labour of love. With eight books all published within a year of each other, I have many free Kindle promotions to organise. I’m entitled to five every three months for each book. I made this dinky little banner to celebrate. Now to make banners for all of my other books. I loved the surprise banner author Colin Garrow kindly made for my paranormal thriller The Hostile, and the also the eye-catching ones he produces for all of his books, so I thought I’d also make some. Right, back to the star jumps and push-ups. Here is the link to the Kindle of Living with Postcards on Amazon, ready for tomorrow when you will naturally be downloading the free Kindle, unless you already have the Kindle or paperback version http://amzn.to/29d6k5T
