Hi everyone and welcome to 2015!
I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year. This year is going to be a BIG ONE! I have many new and exciting projects coming up that I want to tell you about – the first is a new humorous detective book featuring Lawrence Pinkley – The Mystery of Van Gogh’s Missing Heart. It is already written and edited and with the illustrator at the moment. Release date is end of February – more news about that nearer the time.
Also I have the first book in a brand new series that is already causing a lot of excitement amongst publishers and agents. It is temporarily called Project X as it has no official title yet. It follows the lives of a group of Savants – children with incredible gifts – photographic memories, talents with languages and numbers, lightening reactions, telekinesis. It is set in London inside a disused Underground station. They are employed by the British Government who train them to use their gifts for the greater good.
Another project of mine that is being launched on Monday 5th January 2015. I have teamed up with Nick Wale who some of you may already know is already the leading marketing consultant for authors, and created Flanagan Wale Publishing. As an author you retain all rights and copyright to your books, keep every royalty that you earn, and receive professional support from our team of experienced Authors, Editors, Designers and Marketing Consultants. You retain creative control throughout the process and make choices on the design of your book, as well as it’s journey into the hands your readers.
To celebrate the launch we are running a competition. Prizes include:
Top Prize – A Kindle Express Publishing package, Junior Marketing package and a radio interview.
Second Prize – 3 x Junior Marketing packages.
Third Prize – 5 x Facebook Promotional banners.
The competition will be officially announced on Monday, but you can take a sneaky look around the website today if you wish.
I hope 2015 is a great year for you.
All the best,
