ABIDE WITH ME: The first couple of days . . .



Blimey.  It's been a mad couple of days.

The paperback, though out for a couple of months, was officially launched by my publishers - Caffeine Nights Publishing - on Monday, along with the first sight of the Kindle version.  Due to an error at Amazon, the Kindle version went on sale for 77p, I think, here in the UK, instead of the free offer myself and my publisher had previously discussed.  But on Tuesday, the free offer began, and my fingers haven't stopped.

I had no idea how much work it would take promoting the book.  I must say, though, my friends and writing colleagues across the internet - from FanStory to Facebook, from Twitter to Goodreads, and beyond - have been magnificent.  So much so, that at the time of writing, the Kindle version is now the twelfth most downloaded free book in on in the UK. 

The free offer won't last long, so if you want to take advantage of it before it disappears, here are the links:

Elsewhere the brilliantly ubiquitous Mr Paul Brazill has posted a lovely review of ABIDE WITH ME on his blog here and other feedback I've been getting has been amazing.  There are a couple of exciting things in the pipeline for the next week or so, so things is getting pretty exciting.

And, of course, there is the little matter of my first book signing on Saturday.  If anyone is in the area and fancies coming along, I'll be signing copies of ABIDE WITH ME from 11am.  Would be lovely to have a chat.

Okay . . . I can't go without mentioning my stablemates at Caffeine Nights.

Both Nick Quantrill and Nick Triplow also have brand new novels out, under the same FREE to download limited offer.

Here are the links:

So, there we have it.  Once again, thank you so much for your support.  Caffeine Nights Publishing are an indie publisher without the clout of the big boys, so we rely on enthusiasm and word of mouth.  If you are able in any way to spread the word about these books, or fancy taking advantage of the current free offer and downloading them yourself, you will be helping in a massive way.

Speak to you soon with some more updates.

Warmest regards,

Ian
