The Guernsey Donkey

 A brand new story set during the occupation of Guernsey is under way! 

Watch this space for details but it's likely to be available at the end of 2012 or beginning of 2013.

 In the meantime, the first two of the tongue in cheek God Particle series of short stories are available now on Kindle or in paperback format, see the enclosed link for details.

Guernsey does it Again!

Over 6000 downloads in one night!

Rank number 2 in USA for Historical and Literary Fiction
Guernsey was entered into a one day Kindle promotion that saw it rise to a rank of 30 out of all books in the USA on Kindle, and number 2 for each of the Historical and Literary Fiction categories.

As sales of Rachel's Shoe and The Causeway continue unabated, it appears this latest novel is complementary rather than competitive. Very pleasing after just a few weeks.

The Kindle offer has resulted in thousands of downloads around the world and at one point 'Guernsey' was ranked in the top few hundred of all books on Amazon in the USA, and there are over a million of those!

Given the release date was only February 8th, I'm very pleased with the result.

UK sales have also been very strong and interestingly, the impact on sales of Rachel's Shoe and The Causeway has been minimal. In fact, over the past few days, Rachel's Shoe has been getting a 'Page One' rank for the keyword 'Guernsey' on Google, which is no mean feat considering the competition for that page.

When 'Guernsey' (the movie about The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie) starts filming, I hope further interest will be generated in the island and even more customers will decide to read about Rachel's story.

‘Guernsey’ sales soar to UK number 2!

On Monday and Tuesday this week, a free promotion on Kindle launched the novel Guernsey – Rachel’s Story resulting in thousands of downloads during the two days. It worked, since then all around the globe sales have soared, peaking today at number two in the UK genre for War titles on Kindle and number 11 for Historical Fiction.

 Ranked at 350 out of 400,000 titles in the UK and just under 7000 out of 1 million titles in the USA, Guernsey was released for the first time on Kindle last weekend.

I’m hoping the sales trend will continue for Guernsey, and echo the success of Rachel’s Shoe and The Causeway, the two titles that are combined in Guernsey.
You can purchase the novel from here;
…and from Amazon in the USA, here;

Guernsey - Rachel's Story

Guernsey - Rachel's Story has been released this week in the USA and includes both Rachel's Shoe and its sequel The Causeway in a single 434 page volume.

The UK version will be out in 2012 and a Kindle version will soon be available both sides of the Atlantic. The sequel follows so seamlessly, this seemed like a logical move, I hope you agree!

I'd like to also take this opportunity to thank my readers for their support, especially those who have been written such kind reviews on Amazon and elsewhere.

Happy Christmas to you all and a peaceful New Year!
