My New Crime Thriller

I've just put a new 92,000 word crime thriller online as an eBook - and I think it's a cracker.  Take Two is about a soap opera star - Carolyn Castle - who witnesses a gangland murder.

But she realises that her fame means that she will be in the firing line if she comes forward as a witness.

The killer is charismatic gangster Warwick Richards - and he's more than capable of killing again to stay out of prison.  But does he know that Carolyn saw him commit murder?

I had great fun writing Take Two.  It's based on an original idea I had for a TV screenplay.  I wrote a few treatments but could never get anyone interested in filming it.  To be honest, I think it works better as a novel! Let me know what you think!

I thought long and hard about pricing.  I'm a big fan of selling books cheaply but there has been something of a backlash against cheap books - especially in the US.  These days readers do seem to equate a low price with low quality.

In spite of that I'm going to sell the book at 99 cents in the States and for less than a pound in the UK.
