As far as writing goes, this week has been a write off. From pointless hospital appointments taking up a day to new pain meds, making me spaced out, I’ve not been able to do a great deal.
One plus has come out of this week though, and that’s that both Creatures and The Next Stage are now available to those of you with Apple devices as they are now on Apple Books – links are available on the Books page of this blog.
I’ve been working on making them available on both Apple and Google Books, the Google stuff I started last week, and I’m still waiting for my account to be approved, the Apple I started on Wednesday and got them up in a few hours. Google really need to pull their fingers out. But, at least I’ve got them out there so hopefully more people can read them.
In other good news, the reviews for The Next Stage started to come in and so far has been overwhelmingly positive. I’ve had 8 ratings so far, and they’ve all be 5 stars, which I think is just incredible. I never thought that something I wrote would be received so well. That’s just another reason why I want to get this book out to as many people as I can. In this challenging year, I hope it brings a little bit of respite from the chaos outside.
In addition to all the purchase options I’m working on, I’m also considering doing a competition for readers to get a signed paperback copy of The Next Stage. I’ve got a few author copies that I want to give away, I just need to iron out what I’m going to do and when, so keep an eye on my Twitter and Instagram for further details.
As for today, once I’ve uploaded this blog, I’m going to try to do some actual writing. I’m torn at the minute of whether I carry on with It’s All in the Eyes, or I do some more work on my ghost-like story which as the moment is temporarily called The Man (I’m hoping a better title will come to me as I write.)
That’s it for blogs again for another week, I’ll hopefully be back next week and able to do a little more, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the side effects from these new painkillers settle down and I can concentrate more on writing and less on shiny things.
Have a good weekend all.
