The Last Mile…

It’s always exciting to receive the first proofs of your new book: and I’ve just received them for the paperback version of Searching for Satu. She has been out of print for 18 years, so this is pretty special. I actually have two versions sitting on my desk: one from Amazon and the other from IngramSpark. The production characteristics are slightly different, in ways that only interest the author; but I’m very happy with both of them.

I particularly like the cover, designed by Jessica Bell of IPA, which manages to capture the spirit of the book and to provide a link to the original Citron Press edition, in the form of the hands reaching for each other across a lake.

Satu is also available as an eBook with both IngramSpark and Kindle Direct Publishing. Pre-orders are already open, in advance of the official publication day on 5th January. Between then and now my I’m focused on a promotional campaign that involves a lot of things that I haven’t done for years. It’s lovely to get back into the groove of being a published author; and although this will be a soft launch for a 2nd edition, rather than a big bang for a first publication, it’s great preparation for the next two books that I aim to publish by 2020.

Watch this space!

Welcome to my website. I'm a Papuan-born novelist and writer of both short fiction and non-fiction, with a strong focus on writing that is evocative of time and place. That comes from half a lifetime spent working for international organisations and travelling around Europe, Asia and the Americas - and from a mixed Scots, English, Swedish and Finnish ancestry. Despite 35 years in the space industry I don't write sci-fi but have a very strong interest in the absurdities and sometime obscenities of corporate life.
