Doctor Perry may have prescribed champagne for the ebook launch, but Bloody Mary's might be better for the official launch in June!
Doctor Perry is finally live and available on Amazon. I pulled him kicking and screaming from the deepest parts of the Amazonian rainforest, and thrust him into a low cost retirement home in the heart of Florida, and from there he's been a very busy boy...
A book is never a solitary endeavour. To start with it is, but then you involve beta readers, or ring someone for advice - like your friendly paramedic or consulting doctor. You muse aloud about the 'what if's' and the 'what about's' whilst walking the children to school... our conversations have at times been quite entertaining! Then there's the editor who fires back four pages of notes, and that was just for the last seven chapters, and the waking up in the middle of the night to jot down key plot ideas without turning on the lights. I might one day post a picture of some of those scribbles! And the online friends who read the first ten or so chapters and were quite clear in what needed to be amended.
I may have written all 77,000 words of Doctor Perry on my own, but I couldn't have done it without the help of so many people, both directly and indirectly.
Now Doctor Perry is in your hands, to read and to review. After all, reviews (as well as coffee) are the lifeblood of authors. A short snappy review on Amazon and/or Goodreads is essential to visibility.
Now here's something a little bit special, if you work in the medical industry - as a doctor or a nurse or a hospital orderly or a carer or similar, post a photo on my Facebook page or via Twitter, showing you at work (remembering important privacy issues first though), and I'll send you a free ebook version of Doctor Perry to read.
Thanks everyone for your support.
Happy reading (and reviewing)
