Work on the paperback edition

I've been sent a galley of the paperback edition. A few typos to correct but the publisher has found a 'last minute' editor so we're still on track to have the paperback available in pre-release format at the 'publisher's shindig' in Aberdeen on the 1st October. I've had one report of possible Kindle formatting problems and one of Iphone formatting 'issues'. Both have been forwarded to the publisher who is actively looking into it. I see that I now have one review, thanks for that. As always all comments/feedback welcome. I've been too busy with repairing the boat to do any writing this last month or so, but the second book in the series was coming along nicely and hopefully when I'm back in the UK for a month I should be able to make major progress. About 40% of the book has been written, all the research has been done and the twists and turns of the plot are clear in my mind; all I have to do now is finish it!

Aha! Proof of at least one sale :)

Thanks Calypso, hope that you enjoy it. I've had a number of emails letting me know that sales are on the move, thanks everybody for not only buying the book but taking the trouble to let me know that you've done so.
After all the frantic last minute proof-reading and the occasional bit of editing life seems a bit flat right now. I'm hoping that between myself and the publisher and myself we found and corrected all the errors. There might be a problem with the formatting for Iphones, but hopefully that might prove to have been 'finger trouble.
Looking forward to the publishers' 'knees-up' in Aberdeen on the 1st October, I really must dig out some warm weather clothes soon. In the meantime work on the boat continues and she is begtinning to look like home again.

So absolutely NO excuses not to buy! I hope that you enjoy it, if you do please take the time to add a review on the Amazon site, and any feedback would be appreciated here as well.

Buy Buy Buy!!!

The book is NOW AVAILABLE on the publishers website!!!! Just in case that link doesn't work go to the main website itself then click on e books. At the moment the legend says 'coming soon', but click on 'book info' anyway and that will take you to the ordering page. The book is available in all e book-reader formats (yes that includes Kindle). Just as soon as it's available on Amazon I'll put the link on the blog.
Anticipating this, I brought a couple of bottles of 'the real bubbly' [Veuve Cliquot, not my number 1 favourite, but it was £12 a bottle cheaper for some reason]. So tonight will be a bit of a celebration with Rose and Vince. There might even be a photo or two, who knows?
After all this time, I can hardly believe it! Here's to getting Trouters up and sailing again quickly, and of course to success. Thanks to everybody who's emailed support over the last few months!
