My Books On Book Store Shelves

Book Store ShelvesMy Books Are Now In Book Store Shelves!

Ever since I wrote my first Ridge Walker adventure thriller back in 2012, my biggest goal was to see my work displayed on the shelves of real bona fide bookstores.

Very quickly, I came to understand that this goal, as a self-published indie author, was going to be extremely hard to achieve.

Don’t get me wrong. I knew that I could make a genuine living from being a self-published author despite having no illusions about being the next Ian Rankin or J.K. Rowling.

My idea was never to beggar myself trying to get an agent and then a publisher. As a late entrant to the world of book writing, I couldn’t afford to wait 10 years for the gate-keepers to finally deign to accept my manuscript.

In addition to writing Ebooks and self-publishing through Amazon, I also embarked on a career in online marketing and then coaching, all of which has been exciting, unpredictable and a lot of fun.

So, I was happy to publish online.

Apart from one thing.

When friends, family and others who knew me were sceptical about my ‘online activities,’ that was perfectly fine. They couldn’t see my growing bank balance. I didn’t need their accreditation.

But when they thought I was just ‘playing’ at being a writer – that hurt. A lot.

I wanted to be able to walk into Waterstones, which is our biggest UK bookstore and point to my books. My son was around ten years old and I wanted him to see my books and be proud of his old dad.

I appreciate that I won’t be shifting a ton of books through these stores. That’s not what it’s about with me. It’s just good old-fashioned pride and recognition of a job done.

So my goal has been achieved this week. My books are on bookstore shelves. Waterstones now sell my print books and I am doing a book signing even in December. One happy author.

The Black Hand Of Death – A Halloween Tale

My Halloween Short Story – The Black Hand Of Death

 

Halloween - the black hand of death

Here’s a cheery (not) Scottish tale just in time for #Halloween.

You’ll be quite safe. No marauding ghosts or ghouls but I think there’s more than enough malevolent spirit for one old Highland house to take.

So, do you believe that bad things always come in three’s…?

And can young Campbell Black throw off the family curse that hangs over the town like a funeral shroud?

Enjoy my gritty story which is not without its dark humour!

But perhaps not the best time for you to have the builders’ in, methinks…

Have a spooky night wherever you spend Halloween!
