Tollesbury Time Forever was also voted as the UK Kindle User Forum Book to Read for February with, apparently, an unprecedented winning margin.
I am obviously lost for words, considering my initial expectations, but I will try and make some sort of sense of all this madness, draw some conclusion of a sort.
- Kindles and ebooks are more popular than I thought
- Tollesbury Time Forever is more accessible than I thought
- People are more wonderful than I thought
Well I fully expect sales to tail off - there are only so many people who will come to hear of the book and perhaps they have all been reached. But it's been a fine start. Maybe one or two more reviews will come in as people get through their backlog of Kindle books - and that will be nice. The Tollesbury Parish Magazine will be running an article in their March edition and I've been told that NHS Trust for whom I work may be running something in one of their magazines in February. And I am still waiting to hear from Sarah at Saint FM - now that's a sentence I never thought I'd write...
I am halfway through revising A Cleansing of Souls and am very much liking the way it is turning out. Just to remind you I wrote it twenty years ago and it has needed a little honing - but much less than I thought. I will be bringing it out in March as an ebook. Rebecca has already painted the cover and it is beautiful.
And I am right back into my next novel - The Bird That Nobody Sees. I love it and can't wait to get it done. I go through phases of writing and phases of surviving. I have just begun, in the last couple of hours, to enter the next writing phase so hello insomnia, hello Miss Red Wine and hello lost days!!!
So again, thanks to you fine people. Darren, David, Liam, Rosie, Cheryl, Lily, Nick and all you other wondabulous beings in this writing, reading life of ours. Keep on Keeping on! And keep on being great!!!!!!
Come on the people!!!
