Think I will have to write two crime novels a year, Kindle sales and a feature on The Book Depository

I'm very pleased to say that sales of my crime novels seem to be doing very well this year thanks I suspect to some really good media coverage and interviews but also a special offer on Amazon's Kindle both in the UK and the USA of my stand alone thriller, In For The Kill, and of Blood on the Sand, a DI Andy Horton crime novel. 

And sales of the paperback of both these novels, I am told, are up considerably, which poses an interesting question, is this because of the raised profile on Amazon?  Although I would have thought people buying the e book would be different types of buyer  to those buying the paperback, so perhaps it's simply be a coincidence. Perhaps though it is in part due to word of mouth recommendation as one reader tells another.  The power of word of mouth must never be overlooked and plays a considerable role in successful marketing.

It could also be because these novels, and my other crime novels, are currently being featured on The Book Depository which has some great prices and FREE worldwide delivery.

Whatever the reason, I am delighted and hope that readers are enjoying these crime novels and others in the series.


A compelling, gripping tale of what happens to one man when someone steals his identity

Alex Albury has it all: a successful business, a luxurious house, a beautiful wife and two sons. Then one September morning the police burst into his home and arrest him. Now, three and a half years later, newly released from Camp Hill Prison on the Isle of Wight, Alex is intent on finding the man who framed him for fraud and embezzlement. All he knows is his name: James Andover. But who is he? Where is he? Alex embarks on his quest to track down Andover, but with the trail cold he is frustrated at every turn. Worse, he finds himself under suspicion by the police. The pressure is on and Aex has to unearth the answers and quick. But time is running out. For Alex the future looks bleak and soon he is left with the option - to kill or be killed.


P.S In For The Kill seems to be particularly popular and that makes me think that I really should write another thriller. It's just finding the time to squeeze this in plus a new DI Andy Horton, don't want to disappoint Andy Horton fans. The solution? Write two novels a year.
