My weekend

Uploaded and started promoting my novel on Amazon

This weekend I have published my first novel on Amazon - see the following link : 

It is the story of the mayhem that a teenager experiences when she finds a goblin in her school bag. What would you do if you found a magical mythical creature in your bag?

So it is available on Amazon with thousands of other books and I am trying to find out how Amazon works and  how you get people to find and read my book.

So far Tip 1 is to put details in your email signature - so I have done that.

Tip 2 is to post a notice on your website or blog. 

I already had a website so that is all up to date - see the following link:

But I didn't have a blog - so here goes.

More tips on book promotion to come.


Re the Marathon and the Olympics - why are we Brits really good at solo sports where we sit down? Wheelchair racing; cycling, show jumping; sailing; rowing; F1, but put us in a team and we are a bit rubbish?

A priest told me over the weekend that last weekend he went to a funeral in Ireland. Then he corrected himself and said a wedding - 'but either way the man was condemned.'


  1. Congratulations Jonathan, downloading your new book to my iPad now. Good luck with it. :)

    1. Thank you Caroline. I hope that you enjoy the book. I am still trying to work out how it all works both publishing and running my blog - I really am a luddite!
