Order now and save money!

I do sound like a market crier, don’t I…

As you know, I’ve set the price for my book as low as possible. Means: my main target is to cover my costs and maybe manage to get an extra tin of cat food or Woodpecker’s cider out of it (the cider is not for the cats, by the way).

There have been some currency fluctuations recently, and so I have to raise the price for “Lieutenant Samuel Blackwood (deceased)” by 30 pence. The new price will therefore be £ 5.10 (current price: £ 4.90). I will, however, not change the amount for “postage and packing”.

The price will be changed on the online shop by Tuesday evening, so if you have been thinking about buying my book and not done so yet, now would be the moment!

Interview with Lieutenant Daniel Leigh (RN)!

An interview with Daniel has been published on the blog of author ALEX BEECROFT (who has just published her outstanding novel CAPTAIN’S SURRENDER on Lindenbay – a book I can only highly recommend. Review to follow!)

If you want to read Daniel’s thoughts on estate management and the advantages of the front flap on his breeches,

Review

Another day, another review. Reviewer Sandra gave my book four out of five possible hearts on

THE ROMANCE STUDIO

This means “very good” and makes me one happy Emma. The book is not available from the source they listed, but I trust in people’s willingness to use Google.

Yes, I’m a hopeless optimist, how did you guess?

Happy ordering and reading,

Emma

    Congratulations! That’s a nice review, though getting the buy link correct would have been better! 🙂

    Also, yay! Thank you for the plug 🙂 Can I ask you how you manage to get so many visitors over here? Over 4000 hits? That’s very impressive! What do you do?

    Thank you! I was really surprised (I usually expect “ehr… yes, it’s special… sort of…” reviews); I did mail them about the link but I guess they are very busy.

    As for the hits: half of them are for the resource list. Entries on wordpress are rated far better on google than the same entries on LJ (I suppose wordpress is considered to be “classier”…), so people looking for any information on the RN in the 18th century, 18th century in general, Collingwood, Nelson, HMS Victory etc. are more likely to find this place than my LJ. WordPress has turned into a resource blog, it seems.

    My LJ has more hits, thanks to the “fannish” content, but still, I’m rather surprised myself!
