The River Maid

The River Maid has been up now for a few days. I’ve enrolled it in amazon’s kdp select and it's currently free to download on amazon until Friday. I’m really happy with how the cover looks. I did it myself and it really wasn’t easy to do. I don’t think it’s too obvious that it wasn’t professionally done. Maybe other people will disagree though.

I’ve deleted a lot of the old posts on my blog. It had been ages since I had updated it and I thought I would start afresh with The River Maid.

I'm back on nights at the moment, but as soon as I get a day off I will find time to talk a bit about the background of The River Maid. I meant to add an author's note at the back of the book, but I never got round to it. Some people might find it interesting to know why I chose that particular period of history to set a retelling of The Little Mermaid.

If you have read The River Maid, I would be incredibly grateful if you would consider reviewing it - good or bad. I'm always hesitant to buy a book that doesn't have any reviews for it.

I've uploaded The River Maid to amazon. It should be available in the kindle store within 12 hours. I'm now worrying that there's something wrong with the formatting or the cover is going to upload funny. Until it's available though, I won't be able to see if there's anything seriously wrong with it. I just have to wait and see.

It's strange that it's finally up. It's taken me a lot longer than I intended to finish it. Working nights full time hasn't left a lot of room for anything else. Now, I guess I need to get back to working on the sequel to Bones and Ashes.
