It’s done!

Well, my friends, I really meant to speak to you sooner, but have been having a few problems. One of which is getting everything ready to publish my ebook, ‘Death of a Twin’ (Book one in the Beaufort’s Landing Series) written as Percy Rose to differentiate my crime novels from my other works. I am starting slowly. So, at the moment (or as soon as Amazon has reviewed it, up to 72 hours they say), Correction book is now live. You can purchase at the link above. it is only available on Amazon as an ebook. It is $2.99USD, which equates to around $4.66AUD. Sorry I can’t provide a direct link yet.

‘Xelma, a reluctant psychic, is hiding out in tropical North Queensland, under the Witness Protection Program, but when her sister, Charlie, is murdered she risks all to investigate.Detective Ryan Croft fears Xelma’s ex-husband may be trying to warn her off witnessing against him. He finds Xelma’s insistence that she ‘sees’ events highly suspicious, however her ‘dreams’ are strangely accurate. Could she be the murderer? He is increasingly irritated when she won’t stop interfering in the case. She could get herself killed, and him as well.  Xelma is not the only suspect. Jealousy, retribution and greed all provide motives for Charlie’s nearest and dearest.Croft fears the worst when Xelma disappears. Has she run? Is she safe?’

Don’t you just want to run out, er, I mean sit at the computer and buy it? Lol.

I, I mean Percy will be bringing it out in paperback, eventually…no soon, but baby steps. I think it has taken so long to publish because I kept playing around and telling myself it wasn’t good enough, or the cover wasn’t quite right, or anything else I could think of to put off the pressing of that publish button. I’m good at procrastinating. Now that that one is up, I think I will go in and add my poetry books and in a little while the first of my psychological thriller series. I’ll let you know as they go up.

It has certainly been a learning curve. I hope I’ve done everything necessary. What I need now are sales, but just as importantly reader reviews. So, if you do buy and read it please don’t be shy about leaving a review (even if you don’t like it it helps, so I’m told).

Oh, by the way, I did up the cover myself, ’cause I can’t afford to do otherwise and besides I thought it would be fun to give it a go. Please tell me what you think. Making the cover has indeed been fun, and frustrating, and irritating, and rewarding, and a huge time eater. I promise to listen to all comments good or bad and take them on board.

I hope you are all well and surviving if not thriving in this time of Covid. I am quite well, thank you. Life here in Australia is moving into the next phase of dealing with this horrid disease, so I am feeling quite good. How can I not, when the sun is shining and I’m surrounded by such a caring bunch?

It’s after 8pm. I think I need to eat.     Ciao for now, Rosa

P.S. Holy moly, that picture came out big. I don’t know how to fix it. Ha ha!

I am so slack only now getting to my replies. I tried to Skype yesterday but you were off line. Call me when you can.
