I always like reading about other people’s experiences with marketing, and as a result I’ve always been happy to share figures from my biggest sale of the year.

If you’ve read my last post, you’ll be aware I recently fell foul of my own decision to publish (via the aggregator, Draft2Digital) my initial novels to Apple as a separate entity, rather than using the same master file for all platforms. This was a result of Apple’s strict policy of no links in your […]

Only one week until THE PRINCE’S HEIR releases #EpicFantasy

I’m genuinely, truly excited about this one. It’s the first time I’ve completed a series, and from being daunted by the challenge of having to wrap up all the threads in satisfying ways, I’m chuffed with how it’s turned out – huge thanks to my subconscious, which somehow came up with all the answers! It’s […]
