Writing - Marketing and sales


So my tenth novel is available to the unsuspecting world. Flight into Secrecy is a Steele novel but with a slight difference. On this occasion he is delving into a real event and the conspiracies that surround it.

I've said in a recent blog that I believe the content of books determines the audience. However, I also feel that as a writer you are creating something and as such it takes you where it wants to go. 

In  this story I have altered my normal approach by researching the fate of MH370, a world famous event. It happened because as the time past I was increasingly astonished at the variation in stories produced by experts and governments. It was an obvious choice of subject for me.



Synopsis

Steele has to travel back to Japan to justify recent behaviours that may have revealed his connection with the Gurentai. He is given a task to complete that finds him on the ill-fated Flight MH370 in Kuala Lumpur. Hours later he awakens in a cell in a place and country of which he has no knowledge. 
Being the resourceful man he is, Steele manages to escape and travels north meeting up with his fiancĂ©e Naomi Kobayashi in Astana the capital of Kazakhstan. 
Steele is naturally curious about the fate of the other 238 passengers from the plane which drives him onward to investigate further. He discovers that there are links between Russian organised crime and a Muslim group which stirs fears in his mind regarding the fate of MH370. This causes him to go to the Venice of the North, St Petersburg, where he finds the leader of the Russian mafia and a link with the Muslim pilots of the plane. 
All does not go well however, and Steele and Kobayashi are captured by their mafia enemy and incarcerated in MH370 on the way to the target that Steele suspected all along – in London.
Can Steele extricate himself from this seemingly hopeless situation? 
Has Steele convinced the Gurentai that he is trustworthy enough to deserve their support?
Will Steele manage to deflect the missile in which he is incarcerated from killing thousands in London?
This story is a speculative journey based upon the data and misinformation surrounding the loss of Malaysian Flight 370 in March 2014.
