PRISM – Exiles…My Book Is Published!

Well, true enough, PRISM – Exiles is published, though I have to confess I did it myself!

Either way, it’s now available from here:

PRISM - Exiles available

By the way, at the same location you can download a free short story, and you can find more free stories for download at my personal website

Here’s the blurb for the book:

PRISM – Exiles is the story of Luke Adams, a rather weak and ineffectual teacher. In the middle of his humdrum life, Luke is transported to a different world, along with a few hundred other souls, pulled into adventure by the simple virtue of their proximity. The catalyst for the transportation is a plate embedded in Luke’s skull, the result of a traffic accident. This plate was made from a metal that contained minute particles from a machine destroyed in a war that took place an immeasurable distance from the Earth. The particles from the machine had been hurled across the space-time divide, to mingle with the broiling firmament of our nascent planet, later to be mined and incorporated into the medical plate Luke bears. However, while the motes were the catalyst, they were not the engineers of the transportation; that was the product of deliberate action – but who those engineers were, what their purpose might be, and exactly what they wanted of Luke, is the subject of this book …

So there you have it. Do pay a visit to either of the above sites, and let me know what you think.

Best Wishes to all out there.

Am I a Publisher?

Well, it seems I am.

Having tried for an age to get regular literary agents and publishers to give me the time of day (admittedly many did reply, but all negative, and not one wanted to review my work) I decided to go it alone. After much thought, and not having any cash to speak of, I decided that Lulu would be my best bet. So, I’ve posted a free eBook called The Cookie Tin there for download, and applied for an ISBN for my novel, PRISM – Exiles. The cost to me (so far) is around £80 STG. Of course, the biggest expense will come when marketing.

Anyway, I now have a Lulu storefront, http://www.lulu.com/nigeledwards. You can download the free eBook there, and next month, with luck, PRISM – Exiles will be ready to buy, in both eBook and paperback format.

I’m going to publish under the banner of Let’s Get Published (http://www.letsgetpoublished.com) If this venture has any success, I may offer the banner to other members of Let’s Get Published. It would be beneficial to many, since our books could contain a page of references, something like: “Titles also available through Let’s Get Published are: blah, and blah, and blah.” That way, every book purchased also advertises other books, thus promoting authors in a cheap and easy way.

I’ll let you know how it’s all going.
