Shades of Grey – new book

Serious post time.  As some of you already know I have been writing and self-publishing books.  Well today I have published my fourth one!  Here is the ‘blurb’:

John is not a very nice man.  He works for the government.  So who has tied him to a chair and what do they want?  James is a British soldier during WWII.  Tom is a young boy with a terrible secret.

Three stories.  Three very different people.  All of them battling to survive.

It is a collection of three short stories and Kindle owners can purchase it directly from the Amazon Kindle store (US link and UK link.)   Owners of other ereaders can buy it from Smashwords.  My other books are available for free on Smashwords.  They are all DRM free so can be shared around without any problems.

If anyone is willing to post a review on their blog or even on somewhere like Amazon and Goodreads then you can use the code below to get yourself a free copy from Smashwords.  This offer is open to anyone so if you know any other readers who would be interested in reviewing it then please do tell them!  As a bonus the review will also entitle you to free digital copies of my future books as well.

Code – NT88S

I have the following people to thank for taking the time to read things before they were finished – No Blog Intended, Random Female Blog and April Trice.

The following people have tagged and/or passed on a blog award to me recently – Addie, A Gripping LifeJbmumofone and Laplumenoire so my thanks to those kind people as well.

Dark Globe Outstanding Artist Awards

Serious post time peeps.  I am a preliminary nominee for the Dark Globe Outstanding Artist Awards over at The Dark Globe.  This award is different to the Versatile and Liebster blog awards as people will be actually voting for the winners once the nomination date has expired (20th December).

There are three categories – Photographer of the Year, Writer of the Year and Blogger of the Year.  I am a preliminary nominee for Writer of the Year courtesy of noirciplume.

If you want to nominate your own favourite blogs then feel free to do so.  Pop over to The Dark Globe and nominate up to three blogs.  You don’t need to nominate one for each category, you can mix them up or put them all in one category.  Note that this is still the preliminary round so even if you see someone already nominated don’t be shy about including them in your own selection as this will help them get to the next round.  So, erm, you can still nominate for me in the Writer of the Year award if you so desire…

Once again this is different to the Versatile and Liebster awards – there is no need for each nominee to post facts about themselves or vote for other people, etc.  Anyone can nominate.

Nomination period expires on the 20th December.

Voting starts on the 21st December and ends on the 31st December

Winrars announced on the 1st January.
