About me

I'm currently promoting a realist fantasy novel, Thiel: One Foot in Front of the Other by Lynne Pearl. It's about an unlikely hero in an imagined past on a journey to claim an inheritance. It's a gentle coming-of-age tale, vividly describing the clash of rural idyll with the march of industrial modernity. A free sample is available on our website and it is available to buy on Amazon.

I've labelled myself as a book promoter for Kindle Mojo, but I fulfil a few functions at Snell Publishers: editing, technical, marketing, strategy. What don't I do? The writing, the creative stuff.

It all started a few years ago when a friend said "will you look at this?" (a manuscript). I think she just wanted me to cast my eye over it but I think I also marked it up in red pen where punctuation was off, paragraphs were too long etc. Then she said "I'm going to publish this as an 'e-book', something I've been hearing about a lot." And I said "You're going to need my help with that, aren't you?" That manuscript was Thiel and it's taken 18 months since I became involved for it to be ready for sale (but it has a much longer history than that).

For more information about our books check out our new(ish) website designed by the lovely James Russell. Or follow us on facebook, twitter, tumblr, or Google+ (which I still haven't figured how why to use but our web designer James said we should). I've drawn the line at using LinkedIn in our online presence because surely four is enough!

I've said I'm here to meet other authors, but all that above sounds a lot like self-promotion. I'll be doing both I guess. I follow other authors and publishers on twitter so I can learn from them and I'll probably do the same here.
