The Misplaced - My First E-Book

I published my first E-book the other day! I used Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) - which turned out to be fairly easy to use.

It is called 'The Misplaced'. It is a teen fiction story, set in the London Underground.
You can see it here : (Sorry - promotions are not allowed in the WD forums. Kindly contact the WD advertising department for all your promotional needs -pls.)

The book has taken some time to complete, and even longer to actually publish.
The idea was born in a Writer's Digest Fiction writing class, with Instructor John DeChancie. This was way back in the Christmas of 2008.
One of our early assignments was to come up with three ideas for a novel, and 'The Misplaced' was one of those ideas.
As the course continued, I took the opportunity to expand on my original idea, adding more and more depth to the characters.

Many thanks to Mr. DeChancie for all his encouragement back then. It helped a lot.

I also started my own blog - take a look and tell me what you think!

Ok - the link is the same, but the cover is new !

(No promotions!)

I rather liked the old black and white cover, but no-one else did. So it was time for a change.
I found an image of a grimy tunnel with the silhouette of a figure that I just love. So I made a new cover, this time with some color.

Take a look. Much better I think.
