So, here's the thing! I've just published my new book. Yep, you've no doubt spotted it on the left - Number 12 in the Parish & Richards series. And . . . I'm already writing No13: In the Twinkling of an Eye - and here's the first chapter.
For those that might want to see a struggling and penniless author in all his glory, I'll be on the Amazon Publishing Stand (16n) at the London Book Fair on the 8, 9 & 10 April at Earl's Court juggling two rubber balls, practising my sword swallowing, sawing some female volunteers from the crowd in half and signing a few copies of my book - Hey! Don't say authors aren't willing to go the extra inch to please their readers.
I'm doing some other things as well! I'm writing a novella called: The Measure of all Things for an anthology, which takes place in Cornwall during the Christmas flooding - it'll be a wet one! Also, I'm compiling another A-Z for crime writers - this time on forensics.
And then, of course, I need to write another Tom Gabriel: Whispers of the Dead. Talking of which, I submitted the first Tom Gabriel Footprints of the Dead into the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award (ABNA) and it just got through into round 2, so pleased about that.
So, that's about it really. I'm quite sure you don't want to know about . . . no, probably best not! Oh well. I could tell you about my business cards. Here's one I prepared earlier. Yeah, I'll be pressing the skin with these at the LBF as well. Hey! We struggling and penniless authors have to do what we can to make ends meet in these austere times.
Hi, I'm Tim Ellis - I write a lot and I hope you enjoy what I write.
