Hi Martin.
Well, to start with, it wasn't my first book that got the number one slot, but the 9th... so I suppose you could say I spent 9 years writing novels and slowly building up a following.
The first one that hit the #1 spot was The Case Of The Missing Boyfriend, and I ran it initially as a free title on Kindle, and organised a download party where everyone I knew "bought" a free copy at exactly the same time.
These days I use a combination of social media, free downloads, countdown deals and paid advertising to get titles launched, but because I have so many readers it has become much easier, thanks be!
Best wishes.(less)

Things We Never Said is out at midnight!

Hi everyone,
My new novel, Things We Never Said is out at midnight tonight.

"From the author of the The French House, The Photographer's Wife and The Other Son, Nick Alexander’s new novel is an epic tale of the secrets we hide from each other, the things we never say."

“One day, we’ll be dead, and we still won’t have known each other. Not properly. Because no one ever does.”

Oh, how we love to slag off a successful author!
So firstly, this wasn't an 'easy" read. It's too big to be easy, and just remembering what you have read in order to situate what you're currently reading can be challenging in a book of this size.

Nick Alexander has written a story that at times shows the main character, Alice, in a less-than-flattering light, but that honesty is what makes her so identifiable with. She starts to question her marriage,..." Read more of this review »

As always, TC Boyle's prose is sparse, efficient, rhythmic and faultless.
The choice of subject matter, such long, hard lives, and the chosen end point, combine to make this something of a joyless read, but never the less, not one I regret.

“I stand and grab a hefty bottle of perfume from the bathroom shelf and return to the bedroom door. It’s not much of a weapon, I know, but it’s heavy and square, and hitting someone over the head with a glass brick has got to be better than bitch-slapping them.”
Nick Alexander, The Case of the Missing Boyfriend

“Fridays! They are the worst. Days stuffed with itsy-bitsy multicoloured tasks that fill every second of the day, but like M&M´s fail to nourish in any way.”
