I have a few audio books going free (UK only at this time).
It’s my first in the Rafferty & Llewellyn British mystery series. Now 16-strong in the ebook edition, it features DI Joe Rafferty, newly-promoted Essex detective, a victim whom the media has dubbed ‘The Faceless Lady’, Rafferty’s family, about whom the less said, the better, and his new Sergeant, Dafyd Llewellyn, who will be lucky if Rafferty hasn’t murdered him by case end.
If you’d like a copy just email me on the contact form above, agree to write a short review (good, bad or argh), and I’ll send you a code for audible, the audio-book people, so you can claim your free audio-book.
Just received the final version of the custom cover from the very talented Nicole of www.covershotcreations.com for this book, the 1st in my 15-book Rafferty & Llewellyn British Detective Series.
I love it! Nicole sent me three different designs to choose from, with different colours and fonts. It was a difficult decision to make a choice as I liked all of them. But I liked the simplicity of this one.
I decided to swap some of Rafferty’s breakfast egg for the tie pin as, although, with his garish ties, he thinks he’s the bee’s knees of style, in reality he’s a bit of a slob, with down-at-heel and usually unpolished shoes, so the breakfast egg adorning his tie was only too likely. Of course, because I hadn’t thought much about covers when I originally wrote this book, it means I have to go back in the book and insert the egg splodge, but it’s a small enough alteration to have it in keeping with my new cover.
Nicole was a delight to work with and I’m more than happy to highly recommend her services.
What do you thinek of it?
Here’s the previous (actually still current until I alter the text) cover.

Just published my latest ebook. Absolute Poison. This is the fifth in my Rafferty and Llewellyn mystery series and tells the story of the murder of a tyrannical office manager. Here’s the blurb:
Well, it’s now up on kindle, minus the cover at the moment, as I received this after the book content. But that will adorn the book shortly. But what I’ve done differently with this one is to embed my trailer into the actual book. How advanced is that? Needless to say, I wasn’t responsible for it – I just asked and it was done by my lovely ebook formatters hitch@Q.com and her staff.
Here’s the trailer:
Hitch thinks it’s a hoot, but she may be biased!
Have any of you embedded a trailer in an ebook? I have to admit this is a new concept for me. I’m still gobsmacked about the whole ebook revolution. It seems like some sort of miracle to an ignored midlister like me. Now we can perform on something like a level playing field with the bestsellers.
I love being able to set my own price, decide on my own cover and control what extras are put in the book. For the next one, I think, as well as an embedded trailer, I’ll probably put the first chapter of Absolute Poison, the next in my Rafferty & Llewellyn mystery series.
How about you? What plans do you have in this mad ebook world? Going to bring out an anthology of your short stories? Or your writing tips articles? Admittedly, with the latter, you can’t begin to compare to the king of tips, J A Konrath and his Newbie’s Guide to Publishing (see Blog List at right). This thousand-page book, made up of countless blogs about the publishing industry and marketing and epublishing, is a phenomenon. It helped to persuade me to join the revolution. I’m glad I did: by the time I publish Absolute Poison, I should be earning £400 a month. Maybe more, as it’s said that the greater the number of books up on kindle, the better the all-round sales. We’ll see. But I’m not complaining. How about you? And if you’ve yet to join the revolution, you could do worse than buy Konrath’s Guide. You’ve nothing to lose and maybe everything to gain. I think it’s the best advice book I’ve ever bought.
