A Shout Out!

This week I’ve SO much to shout about!

After an intense week working on my next novel, Reaching For The Stars, I stopped writing to take a break and check my Amazon listing (as you do!) to see that Bagpipes & Bullshot had picked up a NINTH five star review!

I was so excited that I did a little shimmy around my study - so thank you very much to Audrey Hawkins of Bath for taking the time to post a review. I’m delighted you enjoyed reading Bagpipes & Bullshot as much as I enjoyed writing it. Yay!

Then, another lovely lady called Rea Sinfield, posted a photo on Twitter of her taking a tea break while reading Bagpipes & Bullshot on her gorgeous pink skinned Kindle!

Somehow Rea managed to finish Bagpipes & Bullshot’s eighty thousand words in just ONE DAY and write a review. Thank you Rea. Double Yay!!

You can read Rea’s five star review here at Reabookreview Blog.

Don’t forget - if you don’t yet have a copy of  Bagpipes & Bullshot  you can download it at the very special price of just 90p or $1.45 from Amazon uk and dot com, Smashwords, or from any other e-reader catalogue.

If you don’t have an e-reader and would like to read Bagpipes & Bullshot you can download the free Kindle app from Amazon for your PC, Mac, IPad, IPhone or other mobile device.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Congrats on the reviews.
But I have a problem with Amazon, I sent them some of my books to sell but something amiss cropped up and I can't contact the selleing dept as they say they have no knowledge of my emailadresses. I have had no money from them since sending the books and I know there have been some sold.

Yvonne.

Paula Martin said...

Congrats on the reviews. I've added Bagpipes and Bullshot to my 'To Read' list for when I get a Kindle for my birthday next month.

Janice Horton said...

Thank you Paula. I'm excited for you about your birthday Kindle - you'll love it! My husband bought me mine as a Christmas gift and I didn't know whether to be pleased about it or not. Then, once I realised how many books it held and what was available for it and how quick it is to download a new book, I loved my Kindle. Still love paper books too of course - but there is room in my heart for both! I do hope you enjoy Bagpipes & Bullshot. x
