It is nice to open your mail and find a pleasant surprise - like a cheque for royalties. That was my good news yesterday, a nice cheque, though still not in more than double figures, but an indication that somewhere down the line all my efforts at marketing must be starting to pay off. The cheque was for the first two books in the Harry Heron series, Their Lordships Request and Out of Time, and the sales seem to have been a spin-off from the sales of A Baltic Affair plus some exposure at two Book Fairs recently.

Whatever, the good news is that the books are slowly starting to get noticed and that without my having yet succeeded in getting Their Lordships Request up on Kindle. I know, I know, I really need to sit down and get to grips with it instead of writing the sixth in the series and trying to market the others. Still a long way to go to get to the 'Best Sellers' but then, it's a start.

In the meantime, A Baltic Affair is doing nicely and now it looks as if there is growing interest in my other work. With several outlines to develop, one book to complete revising, and some articles commissioned for various technical magazines, I have plenty to do. And, if sales keep building, I'll be a very happy bunny ...
