Woo-hoo! Editing finished for ALWAL – The Spy…

Yeah! Turns out I was generally pretty happy with what I had in the final stretch of A Lie Within A Lie: The Spy, also known as A Lie Within A Lie 2… so I managed to finish up the editing today. Hurrah!

The other good news is that I feel confident I can get the thing formatted and ready a lot quicker than ALWAL: The Singer. Which means I can definitely hit my release date; May 14th. A Saturday! I’m giving you a whole weekend to devour this thing. (Remember, it’s twice the size of the first book….)

Anyway, if you haven’t visited the book page here on the site, here’s a sneak at the cover…

A Lie Within A Lie - The Spy - female mask fiction novel

Of course, now I also have to figure out how to do paperback version of both books, which is a whole new challenge. I’m on a bit of a roll so maybe I can try it out in time for the launch? That’d be nice.

One or two of you contacted me about ALWAL and not being able to buy it via Amazon. That’s frustrating, considering Amazon’s huge reach, but it’s inevitable for a little longer; basically as part of Kindle Unlimited, a book has to remain exclusive for three months. I think I’m about to get my first royalty payments for the KU version of ALWAL, so we’ll see how that stacks up against book sales. If it’s good, then I’m afraid ALWAL 2 will be in KU for at least 90 days too. However, if you’re burning to see ALWAL 2 in other formats earlier than that, let me know. I still intend to sell them on Gumroad too at some point, probably both as PDFs and standard eBook formats, for those who are Kindle-haters.

So, editing done, pre-order soon, paperback versions to come… and then what? Who knows. On to the next thing I suppose! Stay tuned for more blog posts. And please, leave a comment!It feels a bit lonely out here some days. You can register here.

Welcome to my new mask fiction site!

Well hey there, welcome to my new mask fiction site.. and of course, my new blog. Breath in that new website smell. It’s like a mixture of cough drops and moth balls.

It’s been… oooh, about 16 years since the last time I held a mask fiction related domain, and of course, MaskFiction.com has long since vanished into the no-man’s land of inexplicably squatted-upon domain names. But who cares? Today we’re all about personal brand. Ghostly Writer dot com it is. So welcome.

What ‘A Lie Within A Lie’ is, and what it isn’t

A Lie Within A Lie: 3D mockup, smallI’ve been a bit hesitant to write this post, but I decided in the end I needed to be honest and open. Here’s the TL;DR version:

Don’t buy A Lie Within A Lie expecting a retread of Practice to Deceive. It’s a different book with a different ‘feel’, and for some, it might not be exactly what you want. Specifically: it doesn’t contain transformation scenes from the protagonist’s point of view.

Here’s my longer thoughts. I think A Lie Within A Lie is a great story, and sexy as hell. So do my early readers (stick around for some quotes). I hope you trust me, and I hope you love the book. But, I wanted to be clear about this so no-one buys it and then screams at me for not making it obvious. (I tried to do what I could with the description, although that might have passed some by.)
