Waterstones

Waterstones

I recently teamed up with IngramSpark in order to make my novels more accessible to larger bookstores, including Waterstones! Ever since stumbling into my first Waterstones bookstore on a trip to London years ago, it’s been a dream to see my novels there. And now they are! 🙂 You can now order Down and Out in Kathmandu, The Lover’s Portrait, Rituals of the Dead, and Marked for Revenge at most independent and major bookstores around the world. Happy reading!

I am so glad we did, otherwise we wouldn’t have discovered Nassau or Heidelberg! Our first stop…

Google Maps to Sell Your Books

Google Maps to Sell Your Books

If your book is strong in setting, a fun and easy way to reach new readers is by creating a Google Map. Because my novels take place all over the world and the stories are set in actual museums, cafes, and monuments, I thought it would be a good way of transporting readers to the settings I describe. Honestly, creating a map for my novel The Lover’s Portrait, was one of the first things I did when I started self-publishing….
