It’s here

BS- blue NS 1563x2500

The big reveal

This is the new cover of my latest novel, Major BS.

It comes from clever Maria Connors, who has agreed to come on board to design all my novel covers. This means the covers will have a similar look so I can stamp my brand on them all.

To celebrate, I’m dropping the prize of the book to 0.99 US cents until after Christmas.

This cover is such a big deal to me.

When I finished with Major BS some months ago, I came to a fork in the road.

Do I get it professionally edited or do I get a professional cover done? I couldn’t afford both things.I went with editing.

I did this because I hate being sucked in by enticing covers only to find the book I just bought is full of typos. If my only goal was to make quick money, that’s the way I’d go. But I would rather build my reputation on trust.

So what’s this novel about?

 All Major Jeremy Billycock-Smythe wanted was money, a knighthood and for everyone to call him Major B.S. He never asked for a helicopter to take away his dreams and aspirations.

If you like the madcap worlds created by Tom Sharpe, Carl Hiassen or Colin Bateman, you'll enjoy this funny mystery novel, which is set in Australia but sources two of its main characters from South London.

If you enjoy a bit of schadenfreude, you'll appreciate seeing Major B.S. getting his comeuppance while the man he bullies and belittles emerges as the real hero of the novel.

In other news:

I hope to have my free novel, Who Knew Tasmanian Tigers Eat Apples! available to people on my mailing list by late January. .

I also hope to reformat Major BS and future novels soon to give them a more professional look using a software thingy called Vellum.

I plan to release a novel called Lie of the Tiger on Amazon in June.

I laid down a new draft during NaNoWriMo in November. It’s a funny crime caper.

My plan is to pummel that WIP into shape for release as an eBook late in 2017.

So it's go, go, go!
