Perk of the author’s job

Launch day for DEAD HOPE came and went with a real bang; undoubtedly, this was my most successful launch yet, and I am still reeling from the festivities, the shares, the tweets, the messages, the flowers, the bubbles, the chocolate: I felt like a real celebrity. Thank you to everyone who made that happen.


DEAD HOPE launch goodies given to me. Awesome!

As a result, I now get to say thank you, too. Today, I am sending out the signed copies to the two lucky winners of the Goodreads Giveaway, which saw a massive level of interest with 1546 entrants. Wahooo!


My most requested giveaway yet!

The winners live in Belgium and British Columbia respectively, and a huge congrats to the both of them. If you entered but didn’t win: never fear! The Kindle copy of DEAD HOPE is still only 99p/99c, so go on, why not treat yourself?


A real perk of the job. Loving it!

PLUS! Today marks the kick off of my launch blog tour with the awesome JB Johnston of Brook Cottage Books, and in addition to spotlights, guest posts and reviews (lots of those!), the tour also involves a giveaway of Amazon gift vouchers, mugs, pens, and bookmarks. So get yourself over there and take part. Good luck!


The reviews for DEAD HOPE are rolling in!

HAPPY READING if you’ve picked up a copy of DEAD HOPE. I’d love to see your review on Amazon too. Thank you! 🙂 xx

  1. What an impressive number of entrants – well done, Nicky! I’ve just downloaded my copy and hope to get to read it very soon.

  2. I’m thrilled the launch went so well, Nicky! Congrats! I look forward to more from you in the thriller genre. 😉 I apologize for not getting my review up on Amazon last week. I just added it so hopefully it’ll be live soon. Have a great week!! {{{hugs}}}

    • Hey Brandee! First up, thank YOU for all your support. Your blog post on Friday was hugely helpful, and I love all the great discussion you’ve got going there. Your followers are awesome!! And absolutely no need to apologise about not rushing to Amazon in a mad panic to get the review up: you have a life to lead and other things to do, and utterly and completely appreciate everything you do. And thanks for putting up with me (see what I did there?) and my authorly quirks. Next thriller coming in a few months… watch this space! 😀 😀 xx

  3. I’m in the middle of reading Dead Hope and can’t wait to get back to it. Had to take time out to send this note.

  4. You did a great job on this book, Nicky.

  5. So glad it went so well, Nicky, and big congrats and sending another book into the world! Mine’s on my Kindle, hooray 🙂
