Lovely reviews for “The Radiant Boy – Four Ghost Stories from the Age of Sail” on Amazon!

26 May, 2011 at 8:15 pm 1 comment

I should really pay more attention to the sales of my books. I missed that magical moment when I jumped from Amazon Bestseller Rank 3’799’608 to 908 (I was there for 722, though. Good times!)

If I’d check my statistics more than twice a year, I would have seen the two lovely reviews left for “The Radiant Boy” earlier.

If you like good historical fiction, or good ghost stories, or good character-driven tales, or simply well-written fiction, then this is the book for you. It is a book full of atmosphere, that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end without curdling your blood or spilling too much gore.  – Topsy Reader

Thank you so much! And also thanks a lot to fellow author Alex Beecroft for leaving positive feedback. Today is a good day!

THE RADIANT BOY
Four Ghost Stories from the Age of Sail
by Emma Collingwood
Illustrations by Amandine de Villeneuve

At the annual meeting of the “Young Bucks Club”, four officers serving in the Royal Navy during the Age of Sail share ghostly naval tales.

“THE RADIANT BOY”
“CRAWFORD’S CASKET” “THE LAST JOURNEY OF HMS DOVER”
“LAST SERVICE”

The second book in Emma Collingwood’s and Amandine de Villeneuve’s “Penny, Dreadful and Tarbottom” series, “The Radiant Boy” is an eerie and touching tribute to the classic English ghost story and the Royal Navy.

“The Radiant Boy” contains four stories, one b/w sketch, 10 colour drawings by the wonderful Amandine de Villeneuve and “Author’s Notes for the Curious”.

Oh, and a book curse. That one is included for free…

By the way, if the book should be sold out, no worries. Return in two or three days; that’s the time Amazon needs to re-order. Or order directly through my website.
