Just to let you know that I’ve joined the newly formed Alliance of Independent Authors and will be attending their launch event at the London Book Fair tomorrow. I will post more about them when I know more – do take a look via the link!
I’ve also just updated my Marketing page to include sales stats for The Secret Lake over the last six months and with updates on activities I’ve undertaken to help market the book.
Finally, my new book Eeek! (a fast paced story about an alien who runs away from space to Earth during the World Cup!) is recently out and is getting great early reviews. Of particular note it has gone down really well on the LoveReading4Kids website who have included it in 7+, 9+, Books for Boys and Books for Reluctant Readers. This last category is curated by Julia Eccleshare who is children’s editor for The Guardian here in the UK so I’m especially flattered. Eeek! has also been top of their Readers’ Choice Top 10 for the past 2 weeks! For an indie author doing all of my own marketing it’s quite exciting – I hope you’ll find some of the updated info of use. And please do share news of Eeek! with friends who have kids – they can buy online at most online stores in the UK, USA and Australia.
