Wicked News from Apple


As of March 2013 Wicked Game has been selected as one of the Apple store (UK and Ireland) top 55 debut novels and has been listed in their top ‘Breakout novel’ listings. Its great news that came to me through Smashwords creator Mark Coker in an email this morning.

I was reticent about withdrawing from KDP select but sales through the iBookstore and the reviews on the Apple site have reassured me that it was the right decision to try and reach out to a larger readership. Apple are going the extra mile to support independent authors, they are to be congratulated and thanked for doing so.

Here’s a link if you have an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch with iBooks and on your computer with iTunes. Books must be read on an IOS device.


At just £1.99 I estimate it takes about ten hours to read, on average. That works out at just 20 pence per hour to be taken into a new, exciting and informative world from the comfort of your own home, on the train, the plane or the beach, wherever you like to read. Read a book – it’s the best value entertainment that money can buy.

But for me… back to the writing. Half way through the sequel and going strong!
