So what’s new?:

New book out. get it on Amazon. In the time they have left.

Shane Farrell and his Dad Robert run a small chemists in Dublin. To make things run things more smoothly, Shane introduces an automatic prescription dispensing machine he calls Matilda. Soon Shane and Robert become aware that Matilda has a certain ability that drastically changes both of their lives. Thanks to Matilda, nothing will ever run smoothly again and as a result, they will need to grapple with life and death decisions, balancing good intentions against temptation and each must decide on the path of hero or villain.

The ups and downs of being a writer. follow below.

Well I have 3 novels published on Amazon. I ran an Amazon ad campaign from a chap I found on Fiverr. They were the highest rated and it cost me €137. What to remember is that when somebody clicks on your ad you are also charged. That was not explained to me at the time. So far my ad has had 228,056 impressions, the click charge so far has cost me $34.83 and I have made in sales $11.16.

Now at this point I could turn around a blame the guy doing the ad campaign and say he is just not doing good enough. the truth is people buy books on the look of the front cover. While I did get professionals to do the artwork on my covers I did not get the covers done professional I did them myself on Amazon while I was uploading the book. In trying to save money I am costing myself more. The hard truth is, Judge a book by its cover!

I need to get my three book covers redone to make them the best they can be. Getting your Book cover done will cost anything from €60 to €500. Unfortunately I don’t have that money just lying around waiting on me to spend it. It is times like this I wish I was rich. So like everything I have done so far I will have to work hard and put some money away and get them redone one by one.

I also will have a new book coming out soon. A stand alone book that I really like. I need some black and white art work for inside the Book and I need a professional designed book cover. So that is what I am saving for first. Writing wise I don’t have any issues when it comes to producing the book and I am glad for that. its just the cost of getting it published that is the kicker. nobody ever tells you about this side of it. So as the public servant that I am I will spread the word. so that wraps up what’s going on the last few weeks.

Sam’s Stories The Irishman is out Now available in eBook Paperback and Hardback

The following paragraphs are from my first book The Guide to give you an example of my writing. I hope you enjoy them.

  1. “Why are you tormenting this boy? I’ll see what I can do to help the boy, but I won’t kill him – not for you or anybody else”, I shouted at the old man. “Help him then, and don’t make promises you won’t be able to keep. When you get to be my age, you will know what the world can do to the beautiful, kind and caring people. The years turn them into hateful ugly people, full of destruction”.

2) Just then the door to the flat opened and in walked Growler, another member of his gang who likes to bite people in a fight and omits a deep growl. His chin was covered in blood.

“How did the talks go, Growler?” said Harry, sparking a few more laughs.

Growler looked confused. “I thought you said to fuck them up?” he said looking at Harry.

Harry smiled and turned to John. “Oh no, there must’ve been some miscommunication on my part. When I come to confession you can give me ten Hail Mary’s, Father”,

3) “Bollox to that” said Harry, “Sam, you’re opening the door. If anyone is getting shot or stabbed, it’s the fucker who can heal”. “Once the door is open, we attack. Anything that moves you either shoot or hit, even you Father. I think we may be up against it here and we’ll need all the help we can get.”

4) This time I searched her again, I searched her eyes. I set about rectifying the vessels and nerves that had been damaged all those years ago. Slowly I could feel everything shifting into place. I heard Lucy gasping as light came into her eyes for the first time in nearly two thousand years. I finished and looked up at her face. She had her eyes closed so tightly. “What have you done?” she asked. “I hope I helped”,

5) He was stuck in a cave, but it might as well be a palace because when he looked at her the whole world fell away.

The days he spent with her were the best days of his life.

6) “A man who cannot die, and an angel with a flaming sword? I think we should be enough”, said Uriel. “Oh and Awan if she wants in?” he said to the punk girl. “I thought you’d never ask”, she said. Her punk outfit changed and became some leather chainmail sexy outfit. She was holding two long curved blades that spanned maybe three foot each. “I love when you do that”, said Uriel with a smile.

7) “Is there anybody who you won’t heal?” she asked. “No, all races and religions are the same to me. Is that what you meant?”, I said to her. “She nodded and said, “What about murderers or rapists?”. I thought about it and replied, “I think it would have to be case by case. I’ve known murderers and they were nice people.

8) “Will you live forever?” asked a little girl, who looked just like my Lisbeth had when she was young. “I hope not”, I said.
