Success as an author means creating the right foundations for a book to go viral. Despite a plethora of ‘guru’s’ who are happy to help authors part with their money, going viral in the real context of the word should be an aspiration, never a given, but you can load the odds in your favour.

Reading the classics, to our children, can be some of the most memorable and meaningful times we can have with them but times do change. Timely and powerfully poignant. Pathan reminds us of the need to safeguard the reading of children's classic literature or risk depriving our young readers of the wealth of knowledge, enjoyment and sense of heritage to be gained from them.
There is an overwhelming tendency in indie publishing for authors to follow trends and no better example than in the building and growing of powerful mailing lists.

A welcome throwback to the days of intriguing murder mysteries that didn’t rely on sex and violence to disguise thinly veiled plots, Missing Alibi proves a welcome sequel to A K Lakelett's Remember Me.
