Yesterday morning, I submitted the ebook version of Tilting at Windmills, the second book in my Barrettsport Mysteries series of soft-boiled mysteries to Amazon.
By evening it was up for sale on the US and Canadian Amazon sites (and I presume other site around the world). I appear to already have one sale on Amazon.com, so I’m off and lumbering sloth-like to fame and fortune.
A few minutes ago, I submitted the paperback version using KDP paperback publishing. It didn’t seem as easy as Createspace was, but that might be mostly getting used to new procedures (tough thing to do at my age). It should be available for sale on the major Amazon sites in the next day or so. They say it could take up to 72 hours, but the ebook only to 8 hours to show up. So, I’m hoping I will see it late tonight or early tomorrow.
Tilting at Windmills continues to follow the investigative exploits of police Detective Simon Goodyear in the imaginary South Shore Nova Scotia town of Barrettsport. He’s ably assisted once again by Constable Diana Jackson. The crime they investigate in Tilting at Windmills is more brutal than the one Simon encountered in A Body in the Sacristy, book one in the Barrettsport Mysteries series. I tried not to make it too gruesome.
As in A Body in the Sacristy, the unusual characteristics of the town become important factors, and I’ve introduced two interesting young women to offer Simon diversions from the tedium of police investigations.
