My novel, A Shadow’s Voice, is now available to pre-order as an ebook from Amazon. Click here to view/pre-order it.
Pre-ordered copies will be delivered to your Kindle on Monday 28th May. Alternatively, you can wait until 28th and buy straight away.
The next step for me will be formatting a print version (apparently most people start with the physical version, but I’m awkward). If you prefer a physical book rather than an ebook, keep trying the Amazon link and I’ll get it sorted asap.
At last my latest novel is on the brink of publication. I’m hoping to finish formatting and to press the ‘publish now’ button within the next week. Here’s the ‘blurb’:
Twenty-three-year-old Jessica Porter was orphaned as a baby and has always relied on Gran to help her through hard times. When Gran dies suddenly, Jessica must find a way to deal with her grief – and an unforeseen bequest.
Seventh is a shadow-like entity who silently helps troubled humans through challenging times in their lives. Soon after transferring to new host Jessica, Seventh is forced to take an unprecedented course of action with extreme consequences. With Jessica’s self-confidence at an all-time low, a chance meeting in the park makes Seventh fear for her safety.
Will Seventh steer Jessica successfully through her time of need, or will Jessica decide to follow a more sinister path?
A Shadow’s Voice is a contemporary novel about what it is to be human, from the perspective of an entity that most assuredly is not.
I will provide direct links to purchase from Amazon once published, so watch this space. Thank you to everyone who has supported me.
I’m both getting there and stuck at the same time. My latest novel, ‘A Shadow’s Voice’, is now with my copy editor and I’m waiting for draft cover designs to come back from the very talented Dave in Florida. So I spent yesterday mowing half a boggy lawn and writing a short piece for my writers’ group, Shorelink Writers. I wish I was the kind of person who could work on two novels at once, although I’m still short on inspiration for a sixth one at the moment. Perhaps today I will mow the other half of the lawn (it’s not that huge, just overgrown and very wet, by the way). ‘A Shadow’s Voice’ should be available to buy in May/June.
About a month ago, I was out meeting some of my husband’s work colleagues at a social gathering in London. One of them asked ‘When is your next book going to come out?’ and I didn’t know the answer. To be honest, I’d got a bit stuck and was writing v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y.
“May,” says my husband, full of confidence.
“Whaaat?” says I (imagine Despicable Me minions here). But somehow his promise spurred me to action and da da-da da-daaaah! my first draft is now (wait for it, wait for it) FINISHED!!!
Except for a little twiddly bit that needs some research.
Phew! Only the multiple read-throughs, beta reading, proof reading, copy editing, cover design, formatting and a few other little bits and bobs left to do then.
Welcome to post-production!
Oh, and I’ve changed the title somewhere along the way too. Watch this space. Coming in May 2018…….
A cold December afternoon and I’ve spent a big chunk of the day working away at my upcoming novel, Seventh. So far the word count is around 45,000, so I think I may be about half way. Technically anyway. Those of you who write will know how much more there is to do once the first draft is finished. Oddly, I like that nitpicky bit quite a lot (or perhaps it isn’t odd at all to those of you who know me personally and appreciate what a perfectionist I am). After a not-so-quick foray into the land of social media, I think it’s time to get back to – well, I would call it the real world but it’s a fictional one, isn’t it? Sometimes I wonder if the real world is real at all…
Thanks to the technical savvy of my daughter, I am now on Twitter as well as Facebook. Here’s where to find me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SianTurner1066
As a website re-launch special offer, I’m making my latest novel ‘Vibes’ available FREE on Smashwords from today (6th November) until 12th November. Vibes is the story of Emma Logan, a girl with the unwanted gift of being able to feel other people’s emotions. To find out more about Vibes, click here or to download it from Smashwords, click here
I’m working on a few amendments which will hopefully make my website easier to navigate. Apologies if this makes things (temporarily) inconsistent. I’m not a web developer and am struggling to deal with all the techy stuff! Thank you for your patience.
I’ve decided that, since it’s the school summer holidays now, I’m going to make my new novel, Vibes, available FREE for 5 days (in ebook format only).
If you’d like to take a look, follow the link below:
My latest novel, Vibes, which has been available for pre-order as an e-book for a little while now, will be released tomorrow, so if you have pre-ordered it, you should find it winging its way to your Kindle soon.
I am happy to announce that it will also (assuming I don’t muck up the process) be available in paperback from tomorrow (possibly later in the day than the e-book version).
There’s a link to Amazon on my previous blog, so scroll down to find it if you’re planning to order it but haven’t yet done so.
Phew! The process of making your novel available in different formats is so time-consuming. I’m ready for a break (and perhaps a maple pecan danish) now.
