Hope you're all good.
After seeing many of my online writer friends taking the plunge into the E-book world, despite feeling a tad envious, I just soldiered on with the the crime novel. I'm still working with an agent, so felt, out of respect, I couldn't really break from it to bring out a short story collection with someone else. How wrong was I? My agent was fine with it, so I sent my proposal of a crime series to innovative U.S. E-publisher Trestle Press and, incredibly, within a week, MANCHESTER 6 was released... yesterday!
In the book, I acknowledge the many Talkbackers who have offered support over the years. Plus, there's a re-write of a story inspired by this forum, called FORUM OF FURY!
If anyone's wondering about doing the same - why not just go for it? Several people I trust are with Trestle and I've not heard one bad word about them. Plus, it costs nothing! Or, like Lily C, do it yer-self, which costs a few quid with cover design, etc. Or, try a different publisher, Snubnose Press, for example.

For details on how to read it (or other e-books) without buying a Kindle (I still haven't got one yet!), go here...
WARNING: I WRITE ABOUT SCUMBAGS V DECENT FOLK, SO IN SOME OF THE STORIES THE LANGUAGE IS STRONG.
Footnote... My heart is still with traditional publishing, but why not try both? I'll be asking Santa for a Kindle... note to self... must be a good boy! ;)
