Writing - A new outlet

The really big sticking point if you are trying to make money from writing is the sales and marketing aspect. On a personal level my least favourite task. One thing that definitely helps is word of mouth. In fact that has been going quite well this time with 7 Hours After

I have new friends that run the newsagents in the centre of town from which my hero, Patrick Steele, bases his actions. This was just a casual conversation and the owner offered to display my books. A great opportunity from a chance meeting.

Obviously there are the usual channels through which works can be advertised - social media, local news, and so on, but I felt that such opportunities as the above could be golden.




At the current time there is the presidential election in the USA and if you consider the electoral system there is undoubted connection back to the events of 9/11. There is the involvement of the security agencies, unexplained and precipitate actions by the US Government and a failure of security agencies to communicate knowledge with each other. Many of the same people are probably still in post 15 years later. So read 7 Hours After and allow your mind to wander freely and decide what is fact and what is fiction.


Synopsis

Patrick Steele is off crusading once again with his sidekick, fiancée Naomi Kobayashi. This time he is risking life and limb by returning to the hostile shores of the USA. He has had brushes with the authorities in that vast country on previous occasions, but now has been stimulated to return because of apparent dodgy dealings over the World Trade Centre disaster of September 11th 2001.
After discovering numerous ‘theories’ concerning 9/11 and who was behind it, Steele identifies possible links between large corporations with financial interests and political parties. In a presidential election year he is concerned that those vying for that prodigious post may have links with the disaster.
Has Steele discovered underhand dealing by the US security services? 
Did one of the major political parties have a hand in the destruction of 9/11?
Will Steele be caught by the CIA or can he escape back to the safety of the UK?
