Just to inform you that as a St. Patrick’s Day gift to my readers Paper Ghosts will be available free for the next few weeks. It is available from B&N, Apple, Kobo, Smashwords and Sony. Amazon will price match to free at some time, but I can’t say when that will be, though you can just download a mobi file from Smashwords in the interim. It’s a fairly short book (60,000) and has been very popular with Wattpad readers with over 1,000,000 downloads. It has also been voted #1 in its genre at Project Fiction.
The documentary A Knock on the Door was broadcast on Saturday. It tells of the Thomas Niedermayer kidnapping and the tragic aftermath. Very moving, full of compassion and catharsis.
I have played a part in the production of the RTE documentary A Knock at the Door, to be broadcast on RTE One on Feb. 16 at 6.00 pm. The story is an incredibly moving one and helps demonstrate the horror of terrorism and its long-lasting effect. One not to be missed.
There is a link to my book included in the show.
One of my books reached a milestone today. Paper Ghosts has been read 1,000,000 times on Wattpad. While by no means my best book, it received a mere two negative comments from the readers. Thanks to all of you. Now if only I had a dollar per read.
As an avid reader one gets accustomed to a certain level of writing, especially among the indie writers. That’s not to say that indie writers are sub-par by any means, however. I’ve always been a fan of certain “big name authors,” but some of the best stuff I’ve ever read was written by independent authors. Moon on the Bayou was one of them. In fact, if I didn’t know better, I would swear that the author was John Grisham in disguise. The level of detail, down the music being played while the main character was on hold, was exquisite, and the writing style was perfect. Moon on the Bayou was truly a joy to read.
When dead bodies start to turn up it’s up to a small-town detective to solve the case. But he soon finds himself embroiled in an international plot that threatens to destroy not only his life, but those of his friends as well. Drug cartels, human slavery, and a drug company that disregards laws and human rights combine to keep you on the edge of your seat.
Plot twists and mystery abounds in this tale of murder, kidnapping and crooked drug companies. If you are a fan of John Grisham, or of the mystery genre in general, do yourself a favor and get a copy of Moon on the Bayou.
I use Wattpad rather than Select to promote my giveaways – no exclusivity clause – and my crime thriller Paper Ghosts has been downloaded by close to one million readers. I would appreciate if there are any avid crime genre fans out there who could help me reach the seven figures by Christmas. All formats for all devices available.
Have a wonderful holiday and welcome in an exciting New Year
