April Update

Posted on April 2, 2019 at 9:20 AM Comments comments (0)

This is my April 2019 website update, and something which will become a regular feature of my marketing campaign.

Guest Author:

S. Evan Townsend is my Guest Author for the month, with an excerpt from his novel ‘Treasure of the Black Hole’, a book available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and a host of other outlets if you Google the ISBN number (9781517057589).

Monthly Memoir:

‘Vanishing Point’, a cross between fantasy and science fiction, is my free short story for April. Based loosely on a family member, it should provide you with an interesting read.

All other books (and there are ten of them) are freely available for preview – each has its own page on the site.

All of these are available across the world from the usual outlets, or, in the UK, you can buy a copy direct from me.

Leaving Facebook

Posted on February 17, 2019 at 3:05 PM Comments comments (0)

After long and careful thought, I have decided to deactivate my Facebook account at the end of this month. Whilst the platform has been extremely useful in getting my writing to a wider audience over the past ten years, it has become clear to me that saturation point has now been reached, and that new avenues of bringing my books to readers’ notice need to be explored.

To that end, this website will continue to function as before, and those pages devoted to users will still be available (Guest Author, Guest Book, Contact Me), and I will continue to post updates on this blog relating to all future writing.

To those who have already sent me their contact e-mail addresses, I am very grateful and will be sending out periodic updates separately from my blog. In addition to that is the facility to become members of the site itself, this enabling me to send Email Blasts to you on a regular basis; alternatively, and over the next eleven days, send me a private Facebook Chat message with your e-mail address in the text.

Thank You.

'The Beast of Bodmin' by Mark Edmondson

Posted on December 1, 2018 at 7:55 PM Comments comments (0)

‘The Beast of Bodmin’, Mark Edmondson’s debut novel, is a crime thriller which sets off at a gallop and puts the foot to the floor, leaving you struggling to keep up.

The first chapter hook is full of menace and suspense, leaving the reader knowing that there is something lurking just out of shot in the shadows. If the book cover doesn’t pull you in, this will.

Character development, an essential in maintaining reader attention, is carefully done for all major players in the drama which stretches across multiple plot lines, and the author leaves open a number of false trails for his readers to follow.

Without revealing the denouement, I was riveted by the story, and read the book over two sittings across an evening and the following morning.

The book is a satisfying and recommended read. I suspect this is not the last we will hear about Jo Green.
