Shit like this isn’t meant to happen on Christmas Day, I thought. It should be all Tonka toys and The Wizard of Oz on the telly, not piss artists and pederasts.
(Excerpt from If I Never.)
Yes, I know Christmas comes earlier every year — but in the crazy and competitive world of publishing, a little forward planning is, I think, vital. It’ll therefore come as no surprise, I’m sure, to those of you who already know me that I’m now preparing for the Christmas If I Never push.
Naturally, this isn’t something I can do on my own. As I’ve said many times before, success where first-time novels are concerned — especially those published by independent publishers — is highly dependent upon word-of-mouth, the goodwill of those who have read the book and enjoyed it. This is, therefore, a gentle reminder that If I Never is the perfect stocking filler. If you’ve read the book and enjoyed it, why not buy another copy for a friend or family member? Drop me a line, even, and I’ll arrange a personalised, suitably Christmassy inscription. Hell, even if you read the book and hated it — buy it for someone you don’t like!
Also, for the techie types among you, it may interest you to know that the electronic, EPUB version for the Kindle and Sony Reader etc should be out later this month.
This apart, please don’t forget to let me know what you think of If I Never. Maybe write a review on Amazon? It all helps — and, joking aside, your continued help and support is truly appreciated. Cheers!
