Writing - Progress in sales

The realm of sales and marketing hold little or no interest for me and I have put little effort in this area up until this last book. Then by a process of serendipitous occurrences sales are beginning to grow. Obviously I'm pleased but it hasn't been that difficult.

Almost as if a sales angel has been pushing me along, in the right direction.

It began when my daughter said that she felt this book was going to be different from the others.
Then a friend who owns a shop in town volunteered to advertise my books in his emporium.
Finally, I raised my own profile with Amazon by entering my first Steele novel into their Prime scheme.

Three innocuous actions but of all 11 books this one seems to be doing the best. I suppose it is because I have raised my profile but watch this space.

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.


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?
