Looking forward to a new year…

As we near the end of 2013 and the busy festive holidays I’d like to thank all my readers and followers for their support, comments and reviews over the last year. It’s important to me to know I have fans and interest “out there”.

From a tentative start in the cyber world of Self-Publishing and online Promotion, 2013 has been a great year on the writing and publishing front for me. I now have 5 books completed, re-written and re-designed and all available via Amazon (in print or eBook).  My Facebook and Twitter pages are updated and gathering followers. I am getting the hang of this blogging malarky and my website is up-to-date with my books! All new territory for this writer and self-publisher! Of course the icing on the cake was being the first Thriller Author to win THREE book awards in succession via the 2013 Pinnacle Achievement Awards.

MErry Christmas from Percy Chattey Books

OK, I do get some help from my talented web designer who gives me lots of tips and assistance but it’s been a successful year on the whole on which to build my writing future. At the moment I am re-writing and word-processing two of my old books (real manuscripts) that where found in a friend’s garage which I thought I had lost forever… these were originally done on a gadget some of you may never of heard of “a typewriter”. So that will keep me busy for a few months.

Of course I sincerely hope my books can touch more people in 2014 and I want to learn how to gain ground in the Self-Publishing world which is ever more competitive and complicated… so Here’s to a Good Year Past and to a New Year Success. Whatever you do be safe, happy and have a great holiday.

Thank you again! Percy.

Watch and Learn: Thriller Writer on the BBC…

It’s always interesting to watch a fellow author, especially an established author, speak about their craft and their lifestyle… so I do enjoy the BBC “Meet the Author”. This week features Karen Maitland. She writes medieval thrillers with a feminist slant, and a dose of the supernatural. Her love of falconry has inspired her new book, The Falcons of Fire and Ice.

Nick Higham of the BBC (UK) went to meet her. You can watch the video here…
