Can I Ask You A Question?

Whenever people ask me what my book is about, I hmmmm and haaaaah without really giving them an adequate answer. I used to describe it as ‘Harry Potter meets Trainspotting,’ until Fionnuala told me it’s nothing like Harry Potter….or Trainspotting for that matter. Sorry to disappoint all you Daniel Radcliffe and Ewan McGregor fans out there but I don’t want to be accused of product representation.

I’m much better with the written, as opposed to spoken, word so here’s the back cover blurb as it will appear on the book. I wrote it on Monday and it’s the final piece of the Kirkwood Scott jigsaw. I received an e-mail from my publisher late last night that the book will be available to buy on Amazon as an e-book or paperback from next week. I’ll post when I have a definitive publishing date.

In the meantime I’d be grateful if you could help us out by taking part in a little survey to assist us with orders and the like. Just answer the following questions in the comments below.

1. Will you be purchasing a copy of the book?

2. If so, will you be purchasing the e-book or paperback version?

3. Would you be interested in a signed copy, with personalised message from yours truly?

4. What are you expecting from ‘The Kirkwood Scott Chronicles: Skelly’s Square.’

Leave your comments below. Thank you 😊

  2. The book sounds interesting. I also have that same struggle of explaining my mine, mainly due to me working on a 8 book series. Just to describe 1 book without the whole is soooooo difficult lol. I’ll add your book to my read list.

  3. I would like to get the paperback but it does not seem to be in Amazon.co.uk yet.

    I am in Dublin and Cork this weekend so if I cannot buy a paperback I will get the ebook when I get home.

  4. That’s a cracking back cover blurb. Sci-fi and fantasy are not my usual fiction genres of choice (I like a little murder; it keeps e quiet.) after a brief dlirtarion with e-books, I am now a firm paperback or hard cover reader. So I will take a flutter at the paperback version.

  5. 1. Will you be purchasing a copy of the book?
    I WANT to say yes, but realistically, with my backlog of TBR, I doubt it.
    2. If so, will you be purchasing the e-book or paperback version?
    e-book
    3. Would you be interested in a signed copy, with personalised message from yours truly?
    Not with an e-book version. (If I ever meet you in person at a book fair . . .)
    4. What are you expecting from ‘The Kirkwood Scott Chronicles: Skelly’s Square.’
    Judging from the blurb, I’m expecting a complex plot, a bit of a scary read, and a main character I can cheer for.

    The blurb is so good I may buy it anyway, despite my answer to number 1.

  6. 1. I would like to, once my personal finances are in order and my head is a bit clearer.
    2. Paperback, e-book takes away from the “book” in my opinion.
    3. Anyone who’s been following this blog should definitely be interested.
    4. I have no idea what to expect.
    5. Congratulations on making your dream a reality!

  8. I’ll purchase the paperback copy – no signature required. I’m hoping for a good read that will give me a summer escape and a few LOL moments that will annoy my family. If the book is really good, I’ll share it with a former roommate who struggles with OCD.

  9. 1 signed, printed copy please. I am not much of a fiction reader, unless you count the ‘fake news’. I do look forward to reading your book. You have such a wonderful gift. “Bomb Girl” got me hooked, I anticipate Kirkwood doing the same.

  11. 1. It will be added to my Amazon Shopping List.

    2. The only books I buy are on paper.

    3. My practice is to offer a 1-for-1 exchange of autographed novels between myself and other published authors. If this option interests you, we can arrange to swap copies.

    4. As a retired clinician, I’m interested in the psychopathology manifested by the characters.

  12. Great work. I’m so excited for you. It’s finally coming. I’d have that copy that you offered me a while back and make it a signed one if you don’t mind. 🙂 And I will read it immediately. I have no expectations at all, just curiosity.

  13. 1. Yes I will (*)

    2. I’ll be buying the ebook ((*)but probably not until payday)

    3.No thanks – but it’s a great idea!

    4. Having been reading your blog for a short while I’m hoping for interesting, thought-provoking reading. Humour, a good story, little – if any – bad language (really puts me off). Good fun.

  14. Your back cover looks great, and the book description definitely makes me want to get a copy. For me–aging eyes–I will get the eBook. Congratulations!

  16. 1) Yep!
    2) probably the ebook, because I’ll get my grubby mitts on it faster – postage to the States is brutal
    3) I would consider it if it wouldn’t be a complete and utter shambles of your home. You do have to live with this lot
    4) I’m thinking that I’m going to be learning so much about Ireland, her people, Waterloo, how ghosts can interact with people, homelessness – hope for the young, even in the depths….

  17. I left a lengthy response a few days ago but learned my comments were going to spam folders! I’ll repeat here.

    I only read books digitally (eBooks and audio) so I’ll be purchasing the Kindle version. Though I’d love a signed copy, I don’t need one. Save that for your followers that don’t read digitally.

    I love how you express yourself so I’m expecting the storytelling aspect to be wonderful.

    Congratulations!
