Hi all,


I am new to the forum and a newly published author of an action adventure novel called 'Time and Again'. I started writing my first novel in 1993 as a means to learn about computers and word processors. It was only meant as a short story and involved Harry, an Observer in the Royal Navy who had a flying accident and was severely injured - here his adventures begin. In 1996 I had a similar accident in a Tornado aircraft with the RAF, and had similar injuries. During my 2 years of rehab I decided to finish the book and it was published last year after a chance meeting with my publisher. The sequel is finished and at the editing stage and the final book of the trilogy is underway. My publisher runs a small, local firm and we are marketing the book between us. I would appreciate any suggestions as to how to raise the profile of the book.

Thanks, and I look forward to reading some of the previous comments and visiting your websites.

Welcome!!

Your book sounds interesting. Years ago my husband flew jet fighters in the Marines.

Stay around. There are some good people here.

Welcome to the forum. I'm also a newly published author of the book Vampire Heart. As for a suggestion on "how to get known to the greater public", I would contanct your local newspaper companies, and maybe some local radio stations and maybe even some local TV stations.
