TMST – a novel approach

Some of you may be aware of my behemoth of a novel, TELL ME SOMETHING TRUE.

tmst 900

At over 275,000 words, it is a little heavy on the hands, not to say the pocket, as CreateSpace & Amazon retail it at around £15/$19.

Now, despite it being a long tale, I believe it is an interesting one, and well worth the time and effort required. But, of course, I probably would say this, right? 😉

So, I have come up with an idea…

I will remove the current full edition that is available on Kindle or as a Paperback, and re-publish the novel in four parts.

The book is already split into four cliff-hanger-y sections, based around the four seasons in a year (yes, Summer, Autumn, Winter & Spring), and it is my idea to re-publish one in each quarter of the coming year on the first day of each of those seasons (June 1st, September 1st, December 1st, March 1st), thus building into a 4-book series spread over a year.

While a 720 page book can feel a little scary to pick up, four 180 page books should feel quite tasty by comparison.

Also, it gives me a chance to re-edit as I go.

Oh, and I intend to make the first part available as a FREE eBook, throughout the year. And the subsequent three parts should all retail for less than £5 or $7. Well, that is the hope; and having had a quick run through the numbers, I believe this is doable.

Any thoughts/suggestions/comments? All appreciated. 🙂

 

3words xmas 13/25

Today’s 3words are: Naughty, Pantomime, Pine.

And my ongoing story is…

 

Barry felt dizzy and sick as the room vibrated and span, cursing Noel to the NAUGHTY list if he was to blame. He certainly seemed to be aware of what was happening, and could be causing it.

But was blame even possible within this PANTOMIME of madness?

The swirling stopped and Barry opened his eyes, wiping them one last time, hoping he was back in his now, but he wasn’t.

It was still his home, but the PINE cone coloured wallpaper suggested the seventies. He pulled his arms to his chest and glanced at his guide. Surely he wouldn’t dare…

 

3words Twitter Tale

I’m seriously considering combining my November (or October) 3words story AND twitter AND wonky monky.

That’s right, a 3words-prompted Wonky Monky short story told via 140-character-based moments.

Any thoughts?

🙂

I THINK it MIGHT be a prequel to my Wonky Monky 1 book, back when he was still IN the carpet… Haven’t thought about it any further than that, though…

Actually, I just drafted the first part. It’s only 23 words. Yikes.

Also, I think I’m going to add a hashtag to it, being 3WWMTT… can you guess why? I bet you can. Oh yes you can. Go on, try…

 

first five freebie

The first five people who join in with 3words August AND see it through to the final day will receive a VOUCHER for a FREE e-COPY of my collection 3words Redux.

how brave is an agent?

HOW BRAVE ARE YOU? is the working title of the compelling and eye-opening book I have been editing for the wonderful Nicole Delacroix:

http://nicole-delacroix.com/nicoles-blog/

https://plus.google.com/u/0/+NicoleDelacroix/about

It is a riveting and sexyfun read, being a somewhat voyeuristic ride through the innermost thoughts of all the kind (and kinky) souls who anonymously completed Nicole’s questionnaire. I was intrigued, shocked, amused and (yes, I’ll admit it, a little) titillated by its honesty and good-time-sass. 😮 🙂

So yes, the final run-through is now complete, and I want to thank Nicole for letting me play a part in her crazywonderful ride, and wish her & HBAY all the very best in finding an agent/publisher.

The question now is: HOW BRAVE IS AN AGENT?

If you think you know of one who might just be brave and insightful enough to be interested in an unputdownably sexy read, please get in touch. 🙂
