    In the second week of Wednesday Wippet, I show a bit more of Born of Hatred.

    For those of you who don't know, Wednesday Wippet is where you post something of your WiP onto your blog, the only rule is that it has to coincide with the date. So today is the 13th, there's something from chapter 13. It's a great way to show something out of context and see if it still works.

    Thanks, I try not to post every week because I don't want to look like I'm spamming the board. :-)

    But people seem to be okay with it because when I do post I always get load of hits from here.

    Hey steve, this weekend I'm planning on going through a couple of drafts passed my way from the NaNoMissingNo thread. By which to say, I've got a lot of time for my fellow EG peeps when they get to the edit stage. This goes for all aspiring EG writers and is in no way a super-duper-clever scheme to get a load of unpolished drafts that I can somehow steal for massive cash-monies.

    @Lexx87 It's going pretty well, thanks. CAM is selling quite well in the USA. Got a fair few good reviews across all Amazon sites (and 1 bad one, but I'm ignoring that one), so it's all okay.

    BoH should be out in OCT. But if I get enough time before then, I'll send you a readable copy by end of Aug/sept time, if you like.

    @Metalfish Thanks for the offer. I may still need people to read it, come the end of Aug/Sept, so I'll let you know.

    Needed a book this week while working in the field so grabbed "Crimes.." really enjoying it so far Steve, I'll make sure to leave an Amazon review when I'm done.

    Kudos that man.

    i feel a bit bad hijacking steve's thread, but i have also taken the plunge - although kindle only atm...

    if any of you feel charitable please check out the sample and/or the full book:
    UK Kindle 3.08
    US Kindle $4.99

    still awaiting those elusive first reviews though, so if any of you take the plunge i'd be delighted to hear what you think (good or bad!)

    Be my guest to hijack away. :-) Self-publishing is a damn daunting thing, so congrats to you. I hope it does well for you.

    I was advised to make a trailer for it... so I did.
    People tell me it sums up the mood of the novel completely, that is to say it's a little disturbing for still pictures and sound.

    That was a good trailer, it's certainly creepy.

    As I'm not going to be blogging much in Aug as my wife and I are expecting our third daughter, I've lined up a bunch of authors to do guest posts/interviews.

    If anyone is interested in a little free publicity for their book/blog then PM me, or leave a comment and we can discuss what you'd like to do.

    sent you a private message steve :)
    glad you liked the trailer - the images are all related to the story, as it happens, and the audio was a mixture of traffic, a heartbeat, and a fake 999 call with the mix all messed up for added creepiness!

    Thoroughly enjoyed crimes despite normally disliking first person narrative Steves. Left a review for you on Amazon. Kudos again matey, looking forward to further volumes :)

    Just picked up a proper kindle rather than trying to squint at my iphone screen, so I've picked up yours as well funk.

    Read Crimes too, the pacing was good, I like a book which doesn't hang about and makes you want to keep reading. Also liked how there were plenty of reveals throughout, which other authors would either tease or simply forget about. After finishing I was left interested in a follow-up.

    Also - I wouldn't have bothered if you hadn't pushed it here and offered the first couple chapters on your blog. Good work.

    There doesn't seem much point in starting another thread, so I thought I'd use this one to tell those who are interested that my second book, Born of Hatred will be out on 16th December.
