Edward is Back!

For those of you who read my novella The Last Observer and liked it, there might be some good news…. Edward is back! Yes, the thoughtful Magician who tried to save Stanley from being snuffed out by a black magic lodge, is the key character in the prequel follow up – The Lord of the Elements – out soon. I am in the last chapter or so now and will soon be issuing it in Kindle format. Although it is a prequel, it should be read after The Last Observer otherwise it will spoil that book’s plot. Perhaps it is best positioned as book #2 in a series that investigates Edward’s past. Drawing on my magical knowledge and interest, The Lord of the Elements includes a magic ritual that goes

Living Ghosts

My latest Kindle Short in the Paranormal Eyewitness series is titled – Ghosts of the Living. I guess that is a sort of mismatch of terms – ghosts of living people….. and therein lies the fun of this book. What I discovered is that there are a number of ways that living people can appear as ghosts…. here are a few – bilocation, doppelgangers, and astral projection. So I covered these and other similar phenomena and I arrived at a conclusion that I rather like actually. In moments of danger, stress, or near sleep, we probably all have the ability to bilocate or be in two places at once. The book is filled with short but real examples as well. Funnily enough, I was telling a friend about the book

Paranormal Eyewitness – A New Series of Terrifying Kindle Short Episodes

I have launched a series of Kindle short books as of yesterday. Each book will be 99cents (pence) and will be a short but focused collection of stories, experiences, and thoughts around certain supernatural phenomena. The idea is to build a library of Kindle shorts through 2017 all under the collective Paranormal Eyewitness brand. The first book – Episode 1 – was released yesterday with a focus on Black Eyed People. About Paranormal Eyewitness Episode 1 – The Black Eyed Demons Are Coming Black-eyed children are an urban legend of paranormal creatures that resemble children between the ages of 6 and 20, with pale skin and black eyes, they are reportedly seen hitchhiking or panhandling, or are encountered on doorsteps of residential homes. The black eyed kids are a frightening

10,000 Books Sold

For the last 16-months, I have been tracking sales of most of my books. Not all, as I can’t access the information in some instances in timely fashion and in the case of one publisher – not at all. However, I have definitely now surpassed 10,000 books sold. Quite a staggering number for something that is really a hobby on the side. I am currently moving 6-10 Kindles a day and 100 audiobooks a month not to mention paperbacks etc. My best seller is now Your Haunted Lives and it has managed more than 2000 sales to date. Not far behind are My Haunted Life Too and My Haunted Life. Thanks to all who have purchased any of my books…. hopefully it will be 20,000 soon!

Three Things That Sell Books – And It Isn’t Content

Nope. Content doesn’t much matter it seems. If you want to sell books here are the three most important things by a mile… 1. Cover. The cover is what will make your book stand out from the crowd. A good book cover is worth its weight in gold. 2. Title. Yep – title is important so think it through, experiment with it and include lots of juicy key words. 3. Description. How you set up the book is important too – write a compelling description and fill it full of keywords as well. Consider using a list of contents and/or endorsements. So what does this mean? It means people buy books based on cover, title and description… Once they have purchased the book, content is more important but to get
