To celebrate the launch of my first novel I have two special treats for you first…
Let’s start the party a little early with a give-away that will last the full week if you have not already grabbed a copy then from now till Friday you have the chance to get Disintegration and Other stories for free, and please if you get it, read it and love it feel free to leave reviews they are always highly appreciated xxxx
Those of you that have known me for a while know how much meaning this book has, 50% of any profits made from this book go to http://www.cords4life.co.uk/ a charity set up in memory of an incredibly brave little boy, because of that this book will never be posted free on Kindle but I will do the occasional special offer, to celebrate the launch of Ascension I am doing a 99p special on it for this week
And now here are the winners for yesterday’s prizes from the on line event party, don’t forget you can be entered every month into a prize draw by signing up for the newsletter on the pop up here or over at http://paulaacton.co.uk and simply opening the email each month

Basically back to me sitting and waffling in front of the camera, a few focus issues as I was not using the tripod on a firm surface rather I had it on the bed with me ( I will not do it again I promise) and a bonus feature of the monster and a horse.
Good morning and a typical wet and dreary Bank Holiday here in the UK but no matter what the weather is doing where you are why not grab your chance to get my first story collection free on Amazon today…
The book is out a couple of copies have been sold, now the nervous wait for reviews to come in and the hope someone likes what you have written. So far no loans through the KDP programme or Kindle Unlimited and I do wonder if it is the lack of reviews which make a difference there or whether I have not got the labels and tags right, time will tell on that and if there have been no bites after a couple of weeks I might consider seeing what I can change.
It has become a fine balancing act between promoting the book and annoying friends by filling their newsfeeds with it. The thing is I know the more books I get out the more following for them I build up the less I will need to post that goes on my personal Fb page rather than my author page but for now at least there is not much I can do and I guess anyone who gets really upset me is probably not a friend who wishes me success.
Next up of course while still doing promotions for Disintegration is getting Voices back on the front burner a process which I have begun already by sorting out the pile of paper stashed on my desk for the last few weeks.
Well the day has arrived, finally you can officially buy something I wrote.
Well to be fair that day was actually Saturday but I had the day job then yesterday I was feeling under the weather. So I decided to leave posting till today. This now is the hard bit, the persuading people they want to read your book without being so pushy they get fed up with you. So reasons to read my book…
It is brilliant – well I think it is, now I do not rule out the fact I may be delusional but chances are if you keep coming back and reading my blog you might just like it too.
It is cheap – well the Kindle version is, not much you can do to make the print version cheap as such but there is still the giveaway running here if you way a chance to get a free print version.
You might enjoy it – really what do you have to lose by giving it a go? It is short stories, quick easy to read to pick up and put down.
You like me – okay just kidding but the three sales so far have already gone to my head and made me smile so much my cheeks hurt so if you want to increase my smile go for it.
And if it is really not your thing, maybe you are a hopeless romantic who still believes in happily ever after then you can still help me by sharing, tweeting or generally squealing in delight about the fact I published this book. Use the hashtag thing #PaulasDisintegration then it will show up on the feed in my hootsuite thing I am trying to get back into the habit of using.
These are the links for my Amazon Pages that way you can see both versions up there Kindle and Print also hit the follow button on there for more news on further releases…
