Intentions realised

Today is release day for my latest short story collection! Thank you so much to everyone who has already ordered Criminal Intent and/or has been helping me let people know it's available. Your support means a lot to me.

The ebook will be remain at the introductory price of 77p (99c) for a few more days, then go to the full price of £1.99 ($2.99). It is also available through kindle unlimited.

 The paperback is now available too. You can get it from Amazon, or order through your local library and some bookshops (ISBN 978-1914339103).  If you get hold of a copy I do hope you enjoy reading it.

Hi Patsy. Good luck with the book. I've asked my library to order your books but have been told they don't order in Createspace
published work. Anyone else ben told this? Thanks.

Another one here who was surprised when the Kindle suddenly gave me another book :)I look forward to reading it. Cat Lumb's Masterclass looks good - and deals with my issue about live sessions - need to get over that! Thank you, Patsy.

@ Geraldine – Thank you.

@ Marian – I hope you enjoy it.

@ Sheelagh – no need to apologise for puns with me. I rather like them.

@ Anonymous – Not taking Createspace books is common with libraries and bookshops. I understand it with bookshops, as they don't get any discount, so can't make any money and of course they need to. It makes less sense with libraries as their job is to provide what readers want, and if people order it, then clearly they want to read it.

However in this case it shouldn't be an issue as the book is also published with Ingram Spark and available through the library and bookshops' usual channels, with no need to involve Amazon/Createspace at all. The ISBN is 978-1914339103

@ Marguerite – I went to one of Cat's masterclass things and found it encouraging, so it's worth attending if you can.

@ Alyson – Thank you.
