I suppose this might come across as a bit of mutual backslapping, given that I reviewed his book recently, but it's fair to say that I'm chuffed that author Mark Tilbury has reviewed "Monkey Arkwright"

Still, in these lean times, I'll take it all the same!

Please don't feel the need to buy it! If you have a Kindle Unlimited sub, a read and a review will be perfectly acceptable!
I do get paid for KindleUnlimited page reads, so I'm getting my money this way anyway.

I was really excited to receive my first blogger review of "Monkey Arkwright" today:-

http://completelychelle.co.uk/monkey-arkwright/


Couldn't ask for better than that! As a bonus, Michelle will be reviewing "Black Hearts Rising" too.

Cheers Taq. Meant to say, I used Word text-to-speech (as you recommended a long time ago and I ignored!) for the first time in the last read-through and it picked up at least 10 things that our combined FIVE read-throughs had missed. Will definitely be using it earlier in the process next time.

9 days to go until the publication of "Black Hearts Rising", so I thought I'd put a little post together outlining what readers can expect ….

https://monkeyarkwright.wordpress.co...e-lotta-gooch/


In other news, after struggling to get the attention of any bloggers, I've got two more reviews for "Monkey Arkwright" lined up! It's all thanks to joining the Book_Connectors facebook group. Now if only I can get some boost on sales!
