    Primordial reviews

    Phil Leader Mar 07, 2017 Phil Leader rated it 5 stars The first Liberator novel is a riot of noise, violence and fun, the summer blockbuster of the science fiction novel. This shorter story from the same universe shows a very different side, every bit as taut, dark and unsettling as Liberator...

    KDP paperbacks

    So, it seems KDP are now going to be doing paperbacks. I'm reading thatp it is full of problems at the moment, so would reccomend no-one switches to it until those are sorted. CS do a great job in my opinion, so it would take quite a large shift in quality and royalty rates to make me change...

    ACX and audible

    Posted this on a different thread, but that was a bit dumb, so... Does anyone have any experiences of using ACX (the audio book equivalent of createspace) in creating and selling audio books? The process looks relatively simple, and you get to audition your narrators and so on, and they do a...

    Liberator by Nick Bailey and Darren Bullock

    Disclosure: I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for writing a review. Liberator is a very good debut offering from authors Nick Bailey and Darren Bullock. It is hard core military science fiction and contains significant violence – quite gory in places – throughout. For me there...

    So, you've written a 96,000 word novel, all those words. A complete story, with a start, middle and an ending. How awesome is that? So why is it so bloody hard to write a blurb? I mean, come on, really? We are really struggling with writing a book description for Liberator that doesn't read like...
