Safely delivered

Well, it’s out there at last; Born to be Wild  has been in my head for a couple of years and finally it has escaped. The mysterious death of Oz Blackstone, explained at last. Published for ten hours as I write this, and already it’s in the top 1000 mystery titles in the Kindle store, not bad for 99p short story.

My thanks to everyone who’s bought it so far. To the rest? Go on, let’s see how high it can fly.

    I have just finished reading Born to be Wild, you are brilliant. More to come I hope.

    With the latest release in the Oz mysteries series how long until the full length novel is released? Why so little publicity and PR around it? Not even mentioned on yours or publishers web pages.

      There won’t be a full-length novel as such. My plan is to publish, at my leisure, a series of connected short stories, in ebook form only. The second, ‘The Last Chickenpig’, was published on October 22.

      The third . . . we’ll see. The first two were easy, but I’ve some decisions to make about those that will follow.

      When I have three, I may publish them as a single volume as well as individually. When I have something of novel length, and a conclusion, I may look at options for publishing in printed form. Then again, I may not.

      There’s nothing on my website, because I haven’t got round to putting it there. All the marketing is done through Facebook and Twitter. There’s nothing on the Headline site because it has nothing to do with them. It’s published under my own imprint, Portador Books.

      That’s worth noting, because the first short story alone has outsold the entire Oz series, in royalty terms over the three months since publication.
