Sold to the Devil
After two years of writing, editing, re-writing, more editing, getting a cover done, uploading, fixing errors and a whole lot of other stuff, my second novel has finally been published!
With the COVID-19 pandemic raging at the start of 2020, my original publisher was in the unfortunate position of not being able to organise the release of Sold to the Devil until 2021. Not one to sit around twiddling my thumbs, I decided to self-publish.
And I’m pleased I did!
After just a few days, sales are ticking over. A couple of early reviews are positive (the bad ones are sure to come, but fortunately none so far). Here’s a sample:
- As a comedy crime book goes, I really enjoyed this one. Fast-paced, madcap incidents, intersting setting of Tasmania, a decent supporting cast of characters….. the bodybuilder and part time gigolo, the pervert policeman, Gary’s girlfriend, his new best mate and criminal accomplice and workmate at the shrimp farm, where Gary’s gigging to get by. It’s a book that doesn’t take itself too seriously and achieves its aim of entertaining.
- Sold was easily one of the best books I read last year, so after joining Denholm’s mailing list, I was thrilled to get my hands on a copy for review. Gary Braswell (err, Dylan) finds himself on the run after the chaos that ensued in the previous novel. If you thought those adventures were wild, found yourself pondering over the combusting birds, or just can’t enough of Gary’s blunder’s, you won’t be disappointed. Personally, I’m hoping this’ll turn into a trilogy (or more).
- The ending leaves you just wanting more. If I had to sum up this book in one word,it would be, ‘bloody brilliant’ (Ok, that’s two.)
For those wondering, there will be at least another book in this series, maybe more. I’m still trying to figure out Gary’s future. Whether it’s happy ever after or a tragic demise, you can be assured of one thing. It’ll be entertaining!
Resources allowing, I’m keen to venture into the world of audio books. I’ve got a few deep-voiced Aussie actors in mind to do the narration. Who would you suggest?
