There is nothing like a little win. That lovely air-punchy feeling you get to be the chosen one.
The problem with me – and call me naive (if you have to) – but when I run a giveaway, I want everyone to win.
1469 people entered the Goodreads Giveaway I just ran for The Accidental Life of Greg Millar. That’s five happy people. 1464 disappointed. Maths guru that I am.
And so, for those 1464 – and for anyone else who feels in the mood – for a limited period ‘Greg Millar’ will be a mere 99c on amazon.com or 99p on amazon.co.uk. The Accidental Life of Greg Millar is a Kindle Unlimited book.
After two months in the wilderness, Pause to Rewind has a companion. Today, The Accidental Life of Greg Millar, makes its debut. I love the cover. I especially love that when you squint, you can see an angel – a happy accident.
Here’s the story:
Lucy Arigho is not the sort to be swept off her feet. She is sober, career-minded and numb since the death of her fiancé. It’s completely out of character for her to race a man in traffic – and even more unusual when they meet again and she is irritated, intrigued and finally enraptured by the driver, author Greg Millar. Within eight weeks, she is considering his pleas to marry him and wondering if she can take on his two motherless children. But before she can make a decision about becoming part of Greg’s world, events plunge her right into it. Her careful existence unravels and she must figure out how to handle two vulnerable children and face the fact that she doesn’t really know the man whose life has so overwhelmed hers.
Here’s what the critics have to say:
‘…has the sparky dialogue, fresh story lines and believable characters her fans have come to expect.’ IRISH TIMES
‘A captivating and moving story.’ IRISH INDEPENDENT
‘Will challenge and entertain in equal measure.’ SUNDAY INDEPENDENT
‘A fantastic read.’ RTE Guide.
The Accidental Life of Greg Millar is now available on amazon.com and amazon.co.uk. I hope you enjoy. Happy Christmas.
Shortly after I published Pause to Rewind as an ebook, a reader contacted me to see if I would be publishing a paperback as she wished to gift the story to two people. At the time, I had no plans to produce a paperback. Because of production costs, they are more expensive to produce, retail higher and are consequently less in demand on amazon.
Then I thought, well, this woman had a good experience and wants to share it which is pretty kind. Publishing a paperback would be an adventure. And the clincher: I could give a physical copy of the book to my son, the little boy who features on the cover. (No longer, little, I might add.)
And so, today, drum roll, I can announce: WE HAVE A PAPERBACK. Available on amazon.com and amazon.co.uk. So a big thank you to that reader. Her kindness has changed my plans for the better. Happy Christmas.
