Nightfall - the US edition

Nightmare - the third book in the Jack Nightingale supernatural detective series will be published by Hodder and Stoughton in the UK next week - following on from Nightfall and Midnight.

It rounds off the trilogy but sets the scene for a continuing series based around Jack - solving crimes and battling the forces of darkness. I have great fun writing the Nightingale books and the research is a blast!

Meanwhile, Amazon is preparing to publish the first book - Nightfall - in the United States. They will be using their 47North imprint and will have the book out in March, followed soon afterwards by the other two. It's going to be exciting seeing them launched onto the American market!

Amazon have had great success with the two eBooks of mine that they have published - The Basement and Once Bitten. The Basement topped both the US and the UK Kindle charts which I think is pretty amazing. I'm hoping that 47North will have similar success with the Nightingale series. The KIndle has opened up the publishing world to independent writers in a way that a few years ago they could only have dreamed of, but there's no doubt that success is easier to achieve once you have Amazon's awesome marketing weight behind you.
