Son of Jack Is Up . . .

Sunday 27th has been and gone.

The 27th saw our book launch and it was an interesting day. All in all it went okay but there are definitely things we can do better next time (June). Seeing as this launch was Starfish Publishing's first one, it was never expected to be a grand day. We never expected to see hoards of people - though it would have been nice - but it gave us experience and a better knowledge of what to expect, how to do things and improve next year.

But the most important thing to some out of Sunday was the knowledge that . . .


And so are two of my friends.

Going the Ebook route was never really my intention. To make a sound career out of writing, I still feel the need to be agented. I like the traditional route, and it's the way I still wish to pursue with my fantasy collection. But I'm okay to write other random pieces for ebooks. It gets me through the door, and it can it be a fun venture.

I have to say though, these last few weeks leading up to the launch have been so hectic, it's nice to be able to just sit back and relax for a bit before continuing with other projects, although I know I won't be sitting back for long. My fantasy, Lady of the Seas, the novel Ihad to put on hold for Son of Jack, is calling me once more, and so are a few short ghost stories. There's no rest for the wicked . . . ;)

So, here's the link for Son of Jack on Amazon. Go read the sample chapters and if you like it BUY!!! . . . no pressure . . . honestly :)


  1. Congratulations!!! Take a wee break, you deserve it!

    I'm headed over to take a looksee right now!

  2. How exciting. /throws confetti.

    I'm off to check out your book :)

  3. Thanks guys (she says, basking in the shower of said confetti...lol)

  4. Put your feet up...and let the other 'arf spoil you. You're a celebrity now.

  5. Congrats on the launch and getting a book out there. It looks really good. It's onwards and upwards from here!

  6. Awesome! Congrats! Sorry I missed the launch, but I'm lost in the Labyrinth. ;-)

  7. Onwards and upwards indeed, Nick. Thanks

    And Tony, the offer is still there for the string - only when you return it, make sure David Bowie's on the end ;D

  8. I have a friend who is published via ebooks (she writes erotic romances), but she still wants to be agented one day. There's no reason why you can't be published both ways. :D
