It’s been heart-warming to see your reactions to my latest release, Last Prophecy of Rome, and for all your thoughts on Placidia, Rome, and current events.
A particular ‘thank you’ to the bloggers and other reviewers, who have written so many kind things about the book – from ‘ChickLibraryCat,’ who wrote: “I was completely hooked from the very first page;” to ‘Splashes into Books’, who declared “(Last Prophecy of Rome is) an amazing, up to date, enthralling read that had me riveted from start to finish,”; Donna’s Book Blog who said it was a “cracking thriller… better than Dan Brown,” and ‘Chelle’s Book Reviews’, who blogged: “What an ending – I was totally blown away and found myself on the edge of my seat hyperventilating.” Thank you all.
And thanks, also, for all the customer reviews – especially the majority of reviews so far which have awarded Last Prophecy of Rome five stars out of five. If you liked the book too, then please recommend it to others by leaving a review on Amazon, Kobo, iBooks, or on your facebook page. You don’t need to write much – a few words is plenty. Reviews make a big impact on what other people decide to read. The Myles Munro books have become popular through word of mouth, so please keep saying and writing such nice things about them!
A number of readers have queried whether Myles Munro is genuinely odd. For example, one blogger mused that although “Myles Munro is on my list of favourite characters…. I can’t work out why he’s called a misfit.” It’s reassuring to see so many people prefer their heroes to be unusual – there are already too many shallow James Bonds in fiction. In my writing, I tried hard to prevent Myles from being typical, which is why he’s not even a typical misfit (whatever that might be). Myles Munro doesn’t belong in any pigeonhole, even one labelled ‘odd’ – and if you tried to put him in any category, he’d escape in a way you wouldn’t expect. I promise I’ll reveal more about Myles’ character in the next book.
Meanwhile, ‘Secrets of the Last Nazi’ continues to intrigue. Eight months since it was published, it has become the 35th best-selling book in the overall Amazon.com sales chart, and in its best weekend so far, which was recently, it sold a massive 3,000 copies. The book has now topped several Amazon charts in both the US and the UK, including categories for the best-selling international mystery and crime story, the top spy fiction book, and the best-selling tale of intrigue. ‘Secrets of the Last Nazi’ is also being translated around the world – and this website is getting ‘hits’ from more and more countries. I will keep trying to answer every comment and question about the books; sorry if I’m slow sometimes.
As for me, I’m going to take a short break from writing – both fiction and non-fiction. Myles Munro will return, but not just yet.
So thank you – your support has been wonderful. Please keep writing reviews, recommending Myles Munro books to your friends, and thank you again.
