Hatstands and Mini-skirts

I haven’t posted on this blog since the 6th of June. Lot’s of stuff has happened since then. My mother-in-law came to stay with us for three weeks. We went to Spain. And, of course, there were the Olympics. I’ll cover all these in future posts.

I have also been preparing a new cover for my novel, Trinity. The new cover went live on Amazon today, albeit in postage stamp size, so here it is in all it’s, err, glory.

Please feel free to let me know what you think in the comments.


There’s An Imaginary Cowboy in The Kitchen

My novel, Trinity, is now live on amazon.

As I outlined in my first post, the journey to this point has been a long one. Over the years I’ve had many requests from agents and publishers for the full manuscript, and I was even offered a publishing contract by one of them — see Welcome World. All the others rejected it. Not many gave their reasons for rejecting it, but of the few that did, their reasons for rejection were pretty much the same: They didn’t know where to place it in the market. Which is kind of understandable. The novel is a dramatic, romantic, comedy, adventure with a good measure of crime fiction mixed in.

Will Trinity sink or swim? Only time will tell. But in the meantime, you can check out the Look Inside sample on Amazon, or download a sample to your Kindle. Or you could even buy a copy!

And remember, buying a copy will instantly make you more attractive to the opposite sex. And for every copy sold, a fairy gets her wings.

When Ben Rider finds his childhood imaginary friend, Trinity, in his kitchen, he knows something isn’t right. Trinity hasn’t changed a bit. He still has three personas: cowboy, pirate, and private eye. He still smells of chocolate, and he still has a habit of massaging his earlobe.

Ben is trying to keep his video game development business alive and finalise a deal with an American games publisher, while keeping his disintegrating marriage together. Now, with the reappearance of his imaginary friend, he has his sanity to worry about too.

Trinity claims he has come back to help Ben sort out his life and guide him to his destiny. But over the days that follow, Ben’s life goes haywire, and it looks like he might meet his destiny sooner than he thinks. Thanks to Trinity, Ben will have a restaurant collapse on top of him, be seduced and later shot at by a Welsh femme fatale, meet someone else’s imaginary friend, and lose both a wife and an ex-wife. But will he find his destiny, or is Trinity’s real reason for returning, something else entirely?
