Two things have happened in my CWAP life so far today and it’s only seven o’clock in the morning! Three Short Blasts went live with Amazon and my Kindle Scout campaign for Deep State (Acer Sansom #4) ended.
Three Short Blasts is a collection of three original stories that are not to be found anywhere else. There is one story in each of the three series that I write: The Romney and Marsh Files, Acer Sansom and Booker & Cash.
Going on industry standard word count, the three stories range from forty to sixty pages of a paperback novel in length – significantly longer than short stories but not quite novellas.
There’s also an introduction in the book where I explain the motivation behind it. You can skip that bit if you like and get straight into the reads, which I hope you will enjoy.
I’m happy with each of the three short stories. And it feels good to have done something different.
Thanks to all who have pre-oredered a copy of this title. I sincerely hope that you find something in the stories to enjoy. Be sure to let me know, please.
Whether Deep State gets taken up for Amazon’s Kindle Scout programme will depend on how those who make the decisions at Amazon view the potential profits to be made from the book and probably that’s all that matters. And why shouldn’t that be it? Bookselling is a business. I’m really not sweating their decision. It could be good for me if they say yes and it would certainly be something different for me to get involved with. But if they say no then I’ll just self-publish it. It’s ready to go.
My sincere thanks to everyone who ‘Nominated’ the book on Kindle Scout and who helped publicise the campaign. I’m very grateful to you all for all your efforts and support.
Once more I would like to repeat my writer’s mantra: writers are nothing without readers. (It’s a mantra. They’re supposed to be repeated.)
