That was easy!

Stags! now available on Kindle - hopefully I will prove to mainstream literary agents and publishers that there is a market for this genre!
Stags! is now available on Kindle at Amazon.co.uk, and Amazon.com, however I am not too sure how the language will translate to the American market.
Suprising how quick and easy this was.
I have also created a paperback edition through Createspace that is at the proof stage.
It is a lightweight, humourous piece of fiction, and gives the reader insight into the thoughts of a group of lads. These thoughts mainly concern drinking, women and football, in no particular order, and most of them are shared in the familiar surroundings of an English pub. The title refers to a stag weekend in Amsterdam, however the real story centres around how this takes place, as the bride to be is adamant that the groom, and therefore all of his mates, will NOT be going to Amsterdam.
I don't expect to sell millions, however I do expect to sell some, despite a number of literary agents and publishers telling me that there is no market for this genre. The reason that there are very few books in this genre is because the industry believes the market does not exist, a self fulfilling prophecy!
With Kindle I can test the water with very little outlay, and my next step will be to try to get exposure for the paperback to the right markets, using outlets such as Talksport.
The first six chapters are available for viewing at http://stagsbook.blogspot.com.
Unfortunately I cant go back in and edit it for another 24 hours to add this link!
Post a Comment new!
