Yep, the secret's out (unbeknown to me, all over Facebook, while I was still editing the bloody stories - and, yeah, they're bloody alright!). So, after dragging my feet on the ebook lark, I've finally succumbed and am so proud to say, my own collection is imminent... MANCHESTER 6 will be out in the next couple of days.
I've been thinking about it for a while, after seeing a lot of my good buds bringing out ebooks. My issue was simply not wanting to disrespect my agent, Nat Sobel, who I'm still working with on a prospective crime novel series. So, I asked for Nat's blessing and, he said, "Go for it". Things moved fast then...
Thursday afternoon I emailed my proposal (for a series) to Trestle Press. An hour later their head honcho, Giovanni Gelati accepted, and by the evening 'Gio' (he's me mate now, innit!) designed the snazzy looking cover. I was up all night editing, tweaking, cutting, tightening the six stories, and, after doing a blurb and bio, by the early hours of Saturday morning, it's all been sent to Trestle.
As us Mancs, say, "Am well chuffed".
This developed for Luca just hours after I posted the interview with him below. So to update his rapid rise to 'Authordom'... his collection is available to buy, for the price of a bag of chips, over at Amazon... here.
I love chips, so have already bought mine. What? You didn't know Amazon sold chips? They're doing everything now... e-chips are amazing... eat all you want 'n' yer don't get fat! No? Okay, good night.
