Some may remember a while ago, some posts about my latest book. This is a Science Fiction novel and very different to my others. Its actually based on my first ideas for a story which I had many years ago. On the basis of all the good reviews my published books have on Amazon, I thought that an established track record would be a selling point with mainstream agents. On spec I sent it to two who specialise in Sci Fi. One rejected straight away the other took ages so I kept counsel just in case it was being considered. After almost three months and some nagging, I got this:
'It’s certainly pacey stuff and you do well to create visual world, it really came alive as I read. However, it’s not quite as literary as I look for.'
Apart from the dreadful English - it's the first time I've had that sort of praise for one of my books even if its not 'literary' enough - whatever that means. So give me a few days to finish polishing and the novel 'Siren' will appear for sale on Amazon worldwide. As usual, I would really appreciate feedback on Amazon or to me directly.
For those of you who have been asking about a fourth naval novel - it's well underway - about a third complete although the RN are being a bit anal about some of the subject matter so I might have to do some tweaking when its finished.
Back to ducks and the canals next time.
The latest epic out on Sunday.
