Thank you to everyone who participated in my latest book giveaway – the first for my latest novel, The Will of the Wisp. Enjoy your free read and if you want to share your thoughts on it, please be sure to leave a rating and/or review on Amazon or Goodreads. The next giveaway will be in October for my annual Halloween promotions, with both Tenebrae Manor and The Will of the Wisp to be available. Until then, happy reading.
Just like Tenebrae Manor before it, I will be running promotions for The Will of the Wisp, starting Saturday 29th July. For five days following, The Will of the Wisp will be free to download for Amazon Kindle. So stay tuned for more information!
The Will of the Wisp is available to buy now! At long last, after three and a bit years it is on the shelves – out there for everyone to see. I can honestly say I feel a lot of closure in its release; in a true ‘sophomore slump’ sort of situation, I wondered whether the novel would ever see the light of day. After Tenebrae Manor was completed in late 2013, the question begged as to my ability to produce another novel (at least in a personal sense for myself).
It was an awkward beast – The Will of the Wisp is half the length of Tenebrae Manor, yet it took twice as long to write! Make of that what you will; I was perhaps too hard on myself with it, thinking that I didn’t like it enough to bother publish it. It was only after I went back and read through that first draft manuscript that I was able to appreciate it properly. I can say now that I like the work, I think it’s a good book, and I hope that my readers will enjoy this new offering.
Anyway, enough maudlin blathering. The Will of the Wisp is available on Amazon now. Paperback copies are just $10 USD, those with Kindle can get an ebook version for $3 USD. A big congratulations to the five readers who won a paperback copy in my Goodreads giveaway – your winnings have been posted and should reach you shortly.
To any and all who read The Will of the Wisp – I do hope you enjoy it, and let it be known I appreciate feedback and reviews. Amazon and Goodreads both offer platforms to rate and review books, so I would highly suggest jumping on one of them (or both!) and sharing your thoughts on the book – be they good or bad! It helps me spread the word on my work, and also helps me hone my craft for future endeavours.
Editting editing the proof copy. Scribbling out pretentious bullshit very good writing indeed whilst sipping a pretentious coffee. Dog-ears here, overused adjectives there. Bad photography. “No filter” – that’s what the youngin’ would say, no?
Goodreads users will have a chance to read The Will of the Wisp before anybody else, with 5 paperback copies to be given away in the days leading up to the official release date. Anybody with a Goodreads account is eligible to enter and this giveaway is open to members in United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. So why not enter and be in the running to receive The Will of the Wisp before it becomes available to the public!
