Last days of Winter Storms

News this week is that Winter Storms is shortly to be removed from sale because it has been re-sold to the Amazon Encore. So anyone who wished to buy a copy in a format other than kindle has until the 28th July! 

Amazon Encore was set up to, 'help readers discover extraordinary, previously-published, overlooked books from emerging authors.' So I'm delighted that they have selected Winter Storms as a book suitable for the line. 

I am also working on re-releasing Summer in Rye and The Orchid as e-books, since the rights have reverted back to me. Selling a right reverted book isn't that easy, so I have decided to take my first plunge into self-publishing and release both books myself. 

With regard to new works, I am finishing off a medieval novel to send to My Weekly for their Pocket Novel range. If they accept it, I intend to send the same manuscript to Ulvercroft for their hard-back range. 

Considering the work that goes into a book and the time taken up by editing and promoting, it makes sense to sell the rights to as many places as you can. The Orchid has been sold in paper-back, hard-back, and will now be released as an e-book.
