Help I'm slipping away!

First of all I have to say that last night was really good fun.  It is so gratifying seeing your work rocketing up the charts, and knowing that it’s all down to the support of your friends.

But now the hard work really starts.   Bitter Roots is already slipping down the charts, so I need to ask more of everyone out there.  If you haven’t yet bought a copy, please do so.  It’s only £1.71, and I think the last time I bought a book that cheaply it was from the Puffin book club in my Junior school.

If you have bought a copy, once you’ve had the chance to read it, please let me know what you think of it.  Leave feedback on Amazon, and I will humbly accept any words of criticism.  Love it or loathe it, I need to know what you think.
A number of people have asked me why I decided to e-publish.  Why not get it published through the usual channels?  I know there is a certain level of snobbery against authors who self publish.  If it’s good enough to be published it would be, right?  But how many books have you read and cried out loud – how the hell did this get published?

I’ve had really good feedback from the RNA, and from other people who know what they’re talking about, but Bitter Roots just hasn’t managed to break through the agent/publisher barrier yet.  I will keep trying, but a part of me thinks that the whole world of publishing is changing, and it feels good to be a part of this revolution.
