Today my novel is finally available to purchase through Amazon. The proof version passed all the final checks and I got an email from Amazon today telling me that the book is published and ready to be purchased in both eBook and paperback format.
The book is called ‘A School of Dolphins‘. It is, perhaps surprisingly, not about dolphins, but about a young guy’s struggle with finding acceptance amongst his peers. He was bullied and tormented ever since he started school, but Alex Morgan’s destiny changes forever when he risks his life to save one of his classmates. Suddenly, he has everything he’s ever wanted: new friends, huge parties, and the girl of his dreams.
But Alex is terrified of losing everything he now loves, and he doesn’t want to go back to how things were before things changed. So in his actions, he becomes more and more desperate to keep his new life, and remain the hero that everyone thinks he is.
In case you’ve not seen it yet, here’s the cover:
And here is a printed proof:
And here, for the first time ever, is the link where you can buy it: (if you want)
It’s priced at £1.99 for the ebook, or £7.99 for the paperback. Naturally, I’d rather you bought the paperback because then I get more money. But it’s only a marginal difference because of printing costs.
I know I should now start promoting it, but honestly now just the fact that it’s out there brings me enough satisfaction. The thought of ‘promoting’ the book gives me anxiety, so I’m just not going to do it. Fully. I’m probably not going to heavily bug people to buy it, because that’s just not the kind of person that I am, but I will start leaving a link ‘signature’ at the bottom of these blog posts as a reminder.
If I sell one, that’s great. If I sell one hundred, that’s great. I have two long term goals in life: one is to own my own coffee shop, and the second is to one day see a stranger on a train reading a book I wrote. So if I only sell one copy, that’s fine, but I’m gonna need the universe to do some funky cosmic shit and make that person end up on the same train as me one day.
Until tomorrow, that will be good enough for me.
