Rounding out the year with some exciting news

Well it's almost the end of the year. And because I really like to end the year in a really positive and uplifting way, I'm really pleased to be able to announce some news which is kind of exciting.

Just over eighteen months ago, I self-published my first novel, Magnus Opum, in ebook format only. Since then, while sales have been fairly modest, I have received some really wonderful reviews and feedback from readers (and some not quite so wonderful of course, but I can deal with that).

The good news I have to announce is that the very kind people at Booktrope publishing have made an offer to publish Magnus Opum, which I have decided to accept.

What this means is that I will shortly be taking Magnus Opum down from Amazon, and the various other online stores it's currently available from. And some time afterwards (I'm not quite sure yet as we don't have a schedule worked out), a shiny new and improved version will be up and running. And not just an ebook version. Magnus Opum will also be available in print for the first time. Well, I guess my mum will be excited about that.

So anyway, keep posted, and I'll be sure to let the world know when Magnus and his friends will once more be making their way through the exciting and wonderful world of book sales.
