One of the best pieces of advice I saw was "write shit" - if it's written and it's shit, you can fix it. If it's not written, you can't do anything with it. Get it down - get anything down - and get on with the story. Editing and writing are very different skills - critical and creative - and you should focus on only one at a time.(less)

Hi David,

Sorry, I've only just spotted this question...

To answer, there's no way to tell which sales come from reviews on my end. I do notice spikes occasionally, but there's no concrete link.

What I would suggest is when you're linking to a book from a review site, e.g. Facebook or your blog, that you put the link under a bit.ly short URL. That way you can track clicks and so on. Still won't tell you actual sales.

And sadly, my sales figures are confidential, so I can't share!

Cheers,
Ed(less)

Hello you.


Quick new post from me to update you on what’s happening in my world. Realise that I’ve been very quiet since April, so let’s fix that.


Fenchurch


Most of my time in 2017 was spent on that old rascal. Two novels, now called IN FOR THE KILL and KILL WITH KINDNESS, out in April and July respectively. They progress the Fenchurch story in a satisfying way, given what happened in book three...
