Reviewed author update - 21 April 2015


I follow all authors whose books I review. This is a little celebration of recent achievements of a few of them.

Piers Alexander
The Bitter Trade is being serialised on The Pigeonhole. There are ten staves at 59p per stave. Piers is one of the most innovative authorpreneurs I've come across. He, like Adam Dreece (see this week's writer round-up) treat their writing and publishing careers like a business and benefit from increased exposure and sales because of it. Other authors, take note.

Adam Dreece
Adam has been at the Calgary Expo, meeting readers and selling his Yellow Hoods books. It sounds like it was full-on – read his blog post after the first two days. And this is how it ended (well done, Adam!):

Lorna Sixsmith
Lorna, author of Would You Marry A Farmer?, has been talking to Cornwall's Pirate 2's farming programme. You can listen to the podcast of the show aired on 12 April, and read an extract of Lorna's book on their blog.

Julie Stock
Julie has been on holiday! My round-ups won't usually include the holiday plans of authors, but Julie went to Nashville, where part of her book From Here to Nashville is set. Her blog looks at some of the places in the book that she and her family visited.

Julie also attended the Indie Authors Fair in Foyles, London, last week. Here are a couple of photos she had taken at her "stall".

And as if she wasn't having enough of an exciting time, From Here to Nashville reached the top 100 on Amazon's paid Kindle Store for Romance Literary Fiction. Well done, Julie!

Lorraine Devon Wilke
Lorraine has had great success with her book After the Sucker Punch. This week she published another novel, Hysterical Love. Congratulations, Lorraine, and very good luck with it!

    Wow, I really like this new addition Clare, it’s all too easy to beat yourself up about things rather than celebrate the little (or big) achievements that come your way through hard work or luck (or both). Well done to all the others on their achievements – great to see esp those sales at the expo for Adam.

    Thanks, Lorna. I love to read about all the positive steps authors take (especially those whose books I’ve liked!).
